Top-Rated Area Rug Cleaning Service

We never back down from cleaning even the dirtiest area rugs you have at home!

With the growing trend of replacing carpets in favor of hard surfaces like laminate, hardwood, or tile, we can see most households today have at least one area rug placed in most used rooms in the house, like the living and dining areas. Whether they’re handwoven oriental rugs or machine-made synthetic rugs, their prime purpose is the same – to provide a softer surface, so you can place your feet comfortably anytime you want to.

And yet, as much as how essential clean rugs can be for your home, you may start to think otherwise once they become dirty, foul-smelling, and worst, a breeding ground for bugs. But they don’t end up in those conditions overnight. Your area rugs can only turn into their worst state if they don’t receive a professional cleaning. 

If you’re seeking the best oriental rug cleaning service then Admiral Cleaners is the right place to call. From odor removal to deep cleaning pet stains, our expert rug cleaners always do a great job in all these areas, and a lot more!

Area Rug Cleaning vs. Carpet Cleaning: Are They The Same?

For many people, carpets and rugs are the same thing, which implies that their upkeep is the same as well. But no, their cleaning process differs. Carpet cleaning services use a different approach from area rug cleaning, especially when it comes to stains like pet urine and odors.

And so, since area rugs are not the same as carpets, they must be treated and cleaned differently. Here’s why:

1. They are made differently.

Rugs are portable and can be moved around, while carpets are meant to stay put.  Plus, area rugs come in so many different types and styles, and they are all made differently. There are natural fiber rugs, wool rugs, shag rugs, and so much more!

2. Rug fibers are denser than those of carpets.

Most area rugs are thick because of their dense pile construction. Therefore, dirt and soil can easily get trapped in the rug fibers. For this reason, regular vacuuming can’t properly remove small pieces of soil from thick rugs as easily as it can from less dense carpets.

3. Fringes exist on area rugs, but not on carpets. 

Many rugs do have fringe but carpets don’t. A rug’s fringe is the decorative border that features loose, hanging tassels. The fringe is delicate and can be damaged by vacuuming, hence, fringed rugs need extra care to maintain their appearance.

4. Area rugs are more prone to color bleeding than carpets. 

There is usually only one color in a carpet. When this color bleeds, it is usually not a problem. Area rugs with intricate patterns, however, can be completely ruined by color bleeding, making the design muddy. This is why it is incredibly important to use the right cleaning solution like rug shampoo to prevent bleeding and fading from happening.

Is It Worth Cleaning Your Area Rugs?

The fact that you’ve opted for area rugs instead of wall-to-wall carpets only means you find them most beneficial to your home, which perfectly explains why you invested in them in the first place. 

But if you’ve accidentally spilled red wine, tracked mud into the house, or your pet had a fecal incident on your rugs, the stains may become permanent despite your best efforts to clean them. So the big question now is: is it worth cleaning them?

These are the main reasons to consider why you should not think twice about having your area rugs professionally cleaned by us here at Admiral Cleaners:

  • Extends the life use of your rugs by years, decades even.
  • Removes common allergens that can contribute not only to allergies but asthma and other respiratory conditions. 
  • Prevents the spread of viruses and bacteria that can cause sore throat, migraine, sinus infections, and difficulty breathing.
  • A clean, colorful area rug can lighten up your space and add a pop of color to a gloomy room.

“We have been with Admiral Cleaners on permanent basis for 2 years now for laundry service. They were our preferred cleaners for several years due to qualify work. They been outstanding as a laundry to include their door service for pickup and delivery. No issues during the 2 years. We had a illness in our family and self laundry was not an option. We intend to stay with them forever as it is a big help for us. We recomment them to family and friends. Good people and excellent service are appreciated!"
