Rug Cleaning service

How we work

Our professional rug cleaning service in St. Albans is a specialized cleaning process designed to thoroughly clean, restore, and preserve all types of rugs, from everyday area rugs to delicate, high-value items like Persian or Oriental rugs. This service is essential for maintaining the appearance and longevity of rugs, as well as ensuring they are hygienic and free from dust, allergens, and stains.

Here’s an overview of the process:

1. Pre-Inspection


  • The rug is inspected to identify the material (wool, silk, synthetic, etc.), construction type, and any existing damage or stains. This step determines the most appropriate cleaning method.

Color Fastness Test

  • A test may be conducted to ensure the dyes in the rug do not bleed during the cleaning process.

Hot Water Extraction (Steam cleaning) method

1. Vacuuming

Initial Cleaning

The rug is thoroughly vacuumed using a commercial-grade vacuum cleaner to remove surface dirt and debris. This step is crucial for the best cleaning outcome.

2. Pre-Treatment

Stain Pre-Treatment

Individual stains are treated with specific cleaning agents designed for that particular type of stain, whether it be from pets, coffee, wine, or other sources.


The entire rug is sprayed with a cleaning solution to break down soil and dirt. This solution is typically left to dwell for a short time to maximize its effectiveness.

3. Agitation

Working In The Solution

The cleaning solution is agitated into the rug fibers. This can be done manually or with a machine, depending on the rug type and level of soiling. Agitation helps in loosening the dirt from the rug fibers.

4. Hot Water Extraction (Steam Cleaning)

Deep Cleaning: The most common professional method is hot water extraction, often referred to as steam cleaning. Here, a hot water solution is injected into the rug under pressure and then immediately extracted along with the dislodged dirt and grime.

Water Temperature and Pressure: The temperature and pressure are carefully controlled based on the rug type to avoid damage.

5. Neutralizing

pH Balancing: Rugs are treated with a pH-balanced solution to prevent stickiness and ensure the fibers feel soft and fresh.

6. Drying (if required)

Speeding Up Drying Time: Using powerful air movers to speed up the drying process. The goal is to reduce the rug’s drying time as much as possible to minimize disruption and prevent mold growth.

7. Grooming (if applicable)

Rug Pile Lifting: Some rugs benefit from grooming after cleaning. This process involves using a rug rake or brush to lift the rug fibers, helping in faster drying and setting the pile in a uniform position.

8. Post-Cleaning Inspection

Final Review: The technician will do a final walk-through with the client to ensure satisfaction with the cleaning job and to address any concerns.

Dry rug cleaning


  • The process typically starts with thorough vacuuming to remove surface dirt and debris.

Application of Cleaning Compounds

  • A dry cleaning compound, which usually consists of a biodegradable absorbent material, is spread evenly over the rug. This compound often looks like a slightly moist powder.


  • The compound is then brushed or scrubbed into the rug using a machine with counter-rotating brushes (CRB machine). The compound absorbs and traps soil and grime from the rug fibers.

Dwell Time

  • The cleaning compound is left to dwell in the rug for a short period, which can range from a few minutes to an hour, to ensure effective soil absorption.

Vacuuming and Removal

  • After the dwell time, the compound, along with the absorbed soil, is vacuumed up, leaving the rug clean and dry.

Key Features

Minimal Water Use

  • This method uses no liquid water, making it a ‘dry’ cleaning process.

Quick Drying Time

  • Since no water is used, rugs can be walked on almost immediately after cleaning, eliminating downtime.

Deep Cleaning

  • Despite the lack of water, this method can effectively clean rugs by removing dirt, and allergens.

Chemical Compounds

  • The cleaning compounds used are typically made of biodegradable material that is safe for most rug types.

Benefits of Dry Rug Cleaning


  • No drying time means that rugs and rooms can be used immediately after cleaning.

Safe for Various Rugs Types

  • Particularly beneficial for delicate rugs that might be damaged by water-based cleaning methods.

Reduces Shrinking and Warping on sensitive to moisture and tough stains rugs such as sisal, jute, hemp, bamboo, coir, etc.

  • Since the rug remains dry, there’s no risk of shrinking or warping due to moisture.

Eco-Friendly Options

  • Many dry cleaning compounds are environmentally friendly and non-toxic.

Ideal Applications

Sensitive Rugs

  • Useful for cleaning rugs that are sensitive to water or prone to damage when wet.

Protection (Scotchguard) for both methods of cleaning

  • We offer the application of a fibre protector to help repel future stains and extend the life of the rug.

Professional rug cleaning not only enhances the appearance of the rug but also contributes to a healthier environment by removing allergens and bacteria. It is particularly vital for preserving and maintaining the quality of specialty rugs, which can be significant investments. Regular professional cleaning is recommended to keep these rugs in optimal condition.
