Carpet cleaning specialists aren’t just for carpeted floors. Your area rugs will benefit from professional treatment too. In fact, cleaning them every 6 to 12 months will ensure they’ll look good for years to come.
But how does cleaning an area rug work?
Does it differ from carpet cleaning?
More importantly, should cleaning area rugs happen in your home or at a professional facility?
Read on to find out.
Cleaning area rugs: at home or in store?
Carpet cleaning professionals can clean your area rugs both at home and at a specialized facility. However, the two processes aren’t equally effective.
Getting your area rugs cleaned at home is faster and less expensive than having it done in store, but it’s also less thorough. If you’re simply looking to maintain your area rugs in between deep cleans, home cleaning may be right for you. If your rugs are extensively soiled or stained, however, home cleaning won’t cut it. You’ll need to give your rugs a deep clean. This can only be carried out effectively using specialized equipment in store.
Home cleaning also isn’t advisable if your rugs are made of natural materials like silk or wool. Rugs made of natural materials are more fragile than those made out of synthetic fibers, so they can be damaged easily. They’ll need specialized treatment, such as high-speed drying, which can only be done in store.

When you choose NewGen Restores to clean your area rugs in store, you’ll benefit from our 10-step cleaning process.

Once the cleaning process is over, we inspect your rug a second time and treat any problem areas. We also use high-speed drying, which will preserve your rug’s colors and ensure there’s no shrinkage.
When your rug is good and dry, we give it a final vacuum, brushing and grooming with special brushes, so it’s guaranteed to look spiffy for the big reveal.
