Expert Area Rug Cleaning in Maryland

Premier Rug Cleaning Experts in Annapolis & Baltimore

Whether it’s a fine Oriental piece meant to be admired or a synthetic blend built to handle kids and pets, any area rug will see significant wear and tear over time. Stains, dirt, dust, and dander all make an area rug less visually appealing and less comfortable to walk on — not to mention that a dirty rug is more of a health hazard than you might expect.

Our Proven 9-Step Eco-Friendly Purified Water Rug Washing Process

family-footer

Our proven 9-step rug cleaning process employs the simple element of purified water to deliver an extremely thorough yet gentle rug cleaning. This approach produces the most extensive cleaning for your treasured investment.

We will come to your location to pick up your Oriental and area rug, or you may drop it off at our rug cleaning plant. Our master rug cleaner will do a thorough pre-inspection with you to evaluate the age of the rug, how much wear and fading the rug shows, the materials used to construct the rug, and the overall condition. The cleaner will go over the best cleaning options, recommended repairs, and expectations based on their inspection.

Did you know that a wool rug can hold 4 times its weight in dirt? That’s why this step is so important. Using a variety of dry soil removal techniques, including compressed air, special vacuum attachments, and a pile lifter, we make sure to loosen and remove as much embedded soil from your rugs as possible, including dust, dirt, pet hair, and other abrasives.

Depending on your rug’s fiber content and level of soiling, the rug and fringe will be pre-treated to start loosening the soils within the rug. Any difficult spots, stains, or pet urine sites will be pre-treated with eco-friendly WoolSafe solutions to maximize their removal.

Our submersion handwashing simulates the age-old cleaning process of submerging the rug for hours in flowing rivers, enabling all foreign matter to be purged from an area rug. A continuous flow of purified water, combined with a mild WoolSafe pH-neutral cleaning solution, further removes contaminants and prevents them from settling back into the rug again. Rugs with particularly stubborn contaminants and odors, such as smoke and pet odors, are submerged for an extended period of time to ensure their complete removal. Each rug is washed individually to avoid cross-contamination and dye transfer from other rugs.

Our centrifuge rug-wringer uses a combination of centrifugal force, effective chemistry, and purified water irrigation, so contaminants are thoroughly flushed out. The force of this equipment is able to remove 90% of moisture from your rug in less than three minutes!

Rugs finish drying in our heat-controlled drying room, where they spend the next eight to 24 hours to thoroughly dry. Once the rug is completely dry, it is combed with soft groomers made for fine rugs to stand the pile in the same direction.

When the rug has finished the drying cycle, it is then off to be “finished.” This is where the rug’s fringe will be restored using a specialty brush, repairs will be made, and any other add-ons that you may have selected will be completed. If you purchased a custom rug pad or Tyvek RugWrap, it will be cut specifically for your rug during this step.

Our certified master rug cleaner will meticulously inspect the finished rug to make sure it looks its best. If the master rug cleaner feels that the area rug has not yet reached the best it can be, your rug will be sent through the full cleaning process once more. Once the rug passes the final inspection, it will be released for pickup or delivery.

Once your rug has been cleared by our master rug cleaner, our Triple-Plus+ encapsulation sanitizer, deodorizer, and stain protector will then be applied to the rug. This plant-based product forms a microscopic barrier around each fiber to enhance vacuuming and add extended soil repellency and stain protection. Once the Triple-Plus+ has been applied, a CLEAN Choice team member will contact you to schedule your delivery or a time for you to pick up the area rug from our facility.

Our Commitment to Clean Products

In addition to our meticulous cleaning process, CLEAN Choice is leading a new approach to area rug cleaning centered on eco-friendly, non-toxic products.
