General Questions

The cost to clean your rug can vary depending on many different variables, including fibre type, size of your rug, condition of your rug, as well as the different treatments that are needed to clean your rug correctly. This can include pet urine, stain and odour treatments, other stain treatments, dye stabilising and mordant applications.

Generally speaking, more delicate, authentic persian and oriental rugs are more difficult to clean and require greater expertise as well time taken to clean safely.

Rug Cleaning Questions

Our rug cleaning process requires us to take your rug away to our dedicated rug washing facility! We can always get the best results for you and your rug when we clean your rug offsite, rather than bringing a steam cleaning unit (like carpet cleaners do) into your home. Our immersion washing technique is impossible to complete in your home.

Another benefit of taking your rug away is that we don’t damage your flooring in the process of cleaning your rug! 
Your rug will come back perfectly dry and ready for use again.

Generally we recommend having your rug cleaned every 12-18 months to ensure that your rug stays in tip-top condition.

Definitely! We have a range of cleaning techniques to suit all types of rugs, including hand woven rugs, shag pile rugs, cowhide, silk, wool and more!

We haven’t come across a rug that we can’t clean yet!

There is a massive difference between a rug cleaner and a carpet cleaner. When you have a carpet cleaner clean your rug at your house, they only clean the surface of the rug. This surface clean will leave dirt, germs, bacteria and other nasties deep down in the rug and also in the backing of the rug. There is also the issue with drying and should a rug be left wet on a wooden floor or carpet for too long it can cause damage to your floors.

Rug washing is a comprehensive clean of your rug. We wash the rug out completely, removing 100% of the contaminants from the front, back, sides and deep down in the foundations. The rug is also dried by our skilled technicians in our state of the art drying room which gives us much more control over how long it dries for. We then also have the opportunity to inspect the rug after cleaning should any detailing or additional stain treatments be required.

Rug cleaners are just that, We only clean rugs! We know the ins and out’s of every different kind of rug and how to clean it safely and effectively.

We also have a dedicated rug washing facility that has all of the specialised equipment, tools and space available to deliver the best results possible.

Absolutely! We specialise in urine stain treatment and neutralisation. Because we wash the rug out completely, We are able to 100% remove the odours and any associated germs and bacteria that go with it.

Cleaning a rug can be a difficult task without the proper rug cleaning equipment and knowledge.
