Area Rug Cleaning Services

At Chicago Carpet Care, we take cleaning seriously. That’s why we’ve made it a point to specialize in the particulars of area rug cleaning. Each rug is unique, and deserves individualized attention, and that’s exactly what we provide for our customers.

Area Rug Cleaning


You area rugs are subject to the same amount of dirt, debris, and foot traffic that your wall-to-wall carpeting is. However, due to the unique nature of each area rug, it is not appropriate to clean them the same way.

Area rugs are made from a wide variety of different materials, each of which may require a highly specialized approach to cleaning. For this reason, DIY cleaning is not recommended. Rug owners may inadvertently discolor, tear, or otherwise damage the fabric.

This is where our experts step in.

We use highly specialized cleaning technologies which allow us to delicately but thoroughly clean each area rug. This means that our methods are safe and appropriate even for antique or heirloom pieces. We follow a carefully practiced, step-by-step process which will safely remove dust, dirt, allergens, and stains. We can also make any necessary repairs as an additional part of our renewal service.

You will be amazed at how beautiful and vibrant your area rugs look after we’ve had the opportunity to care for and clean them.

We need to get to know your rug a little before we begin the cleaning process. Our inspection will show us the weave of each rug, the fibers or textiles used, and the strength of any dyes. Once we have established the precise needs of your rug, we move on to the next step.


This is the most important part of the cleaning process. Deep down in the fibers of your area rugs, dirt and dust particles have been collecting, beyond the reach of even the best vacuums. Using a strong soil separator, we are able to dislodge and remove those particles, which could be causing unseen damage to delicate fibers.


?Using a combination of clean, clear water, and mild cleaning products specific to the fiber and dyes in your rug, we begin the washing process. Your rug will be completely submerged in this gentle solution, and the water will be slightly agitated. This process will do the work of ?scrubbing? the materials without any harsh or damaging bristles. The soil that’s been locked way down in the fibers of your rug will be gently coaxed out, and washed away.

Throughout the washing process, we will continue to make inspections to ensure that the yarn and pile appearance are preserved.


After washing, your rug will be removed by hand, inspected once more, and thoroughly rinsed with clear water.


After rinsing, your rug is ready for our spin drying process, which removes most of the water. A powerful wringer will quickly spin your area rug, preserving the softness and texture. No heat is used in this process, due to the delicate nature of area rugs.


Your rug will be inspected once more before being transferred to a specialty drying rack in a temperature and climate controlled drying area. Once completely dry, it will be moved to the final step of our cleaning process.


Now that your rug is sparkling clean, smelling great, and feeling softer than ever, we will complete a final inspection to make sure the cleaning process was up to our impeccable standards. A quick and gentle grooming will be the last thing we do before scheduling your rug for either pick up or delivery.


Sometimes, your area rug needs a little TLC above and beyond our expert cleaning. We also offer the following:

  • Decontamination and Odor Control ? If your area rug has been affected by any bio-hazardous materials, such as pet urine, sewer backup, flooding, or mold, we can restore the health of your rug by decontaminating it, and removing odors.
  • Custom area rug padding.
  • Repairs
  • Holes or tears
  • Securing edges
  • Replacing or rebuilding fringe
