Our Area Rug Cleaning Process

At The Rug Beater, area rugs are our specialty! Large or small, oriental, wool-fibered or synthetic… We can clean them all! From that dingy rug in the entryway to the heirloom rug that graces your dining room and everything in between!

A properly cared-for rug can last for many generations. Whether you have a special Oriental rug or one you’ve owned since your first child was born, we know that many rugs hold sentimental value. That’s why we handle every rug we clean like it is our own. Here’s a look into our area rug cleaning process:

We Clean Your Rugs at Our Facility

Rug cleaning is different from standard carpet cleaning, but we have the right equipment and solutions to do the best job. Our facility is equipped to handle the rug cleaning process quickly and efficiently. We offer a pickup and delivery service for a fee, or you can bring your rugs to our facility.


We start every rug cleaning with a pretest to determine the correct solutions to prevent bleeding colors and potential damage.

Dust Removal

Your area rug can hold several pounds of dirt, so before we use any water we use a specialized "rug duster" to loosen and remove trapped soils from the fibers and foundation of your rug.

Water Cleaning

We actually clean your area rugs by submerging them in water. Most customers are surprised to hear that we do this. Yet, we found that totally submerging your rugs in water is the best way to ensure the entire rug receives a thorough cleaning. Don’t worry, we test every rug for potential bleeding dyes before we begin our cleaning process.

Fast Drying

Due to the high absorption factor of many natural fibered rugs, they often take longer to dry. The faster we dry your rugs, the lower the chance of color runs. We even have a climate-controlled room with installed dehumidifiers and air movers to keep the surrounding air as dry as possible to ensure the best results.

Stain Removal

We understand that pet urine and food stains are often the biggest reason for enlisting in professional cleaning services. Most stains disappear or can be significantly lightened through our cleaning process.

*Please note that many pet stains on wool fabrics are permanent. Unfortunately, wool is often stained permanently by urine or other organics. But we’ll do our best to remove stains for your complete satisfaction!
