What does a rug cleaning service include?

Each type of rug may require a different kind of rug cleaning treatment. Your cleaning professional will check for tags and instructions and assess the material type before they start the cleaning process. Here’s what you can expect:

Wool rug cleaning

Your cleaner will start by shaking embedded dirt and dust out of your woollen rug. Next, they’ll vacuum both sides of the rug to further remove dirt and lose fibres. Then your cleaner will use a wool-friendly detergent solution to gently sponge the surface of your rug and loosen dirt/marks, without wetting it through. Then they’ll use a plain water sponge to rinse the area before blotting it with clean towels to speed up drying. They’ll hang your rug on a clothesline, railing, or chair so air can circulate and dry fully.

Special rug cleaning

If you have a special rug, whether it’s a Persian rug, woven rug, Turkish rug, silk rug, or a designer rug, your cleaner will be extra careful with it. Depending on the type of fabric and weave, they may use a variety of cleaning methods, including dry cleaning, steam cleaning, hand washing, and cold/hot water extraction cleaning.

Synthetic rug cleaning

Synthetic rug fibres (like nylon, acrylic, polypropylene, and polyester) are prone to flattening and matting, especially in high-traffic areas. Regular cleaning is essential to prolong their life and maintain their appearance. If the rugs have any water-based stains, these can be easily wiped off with a damp cloth. But oil-based stains need professional rug cleaning methods, like solvents and extraction cleaning.

Steam cleaning rugs

Steam cleaning rugs is a popular method for breaking down stubborn marks, sanitising, and neutralising odours. Your cleaner will add detergent and water to their machine, before turning it on. They’ll push or pull their steam cleaner across the rug, forcing hot water through the fibres and extracting it again. Depending on the weather, it may take up to a full day for your rugs to dry. This method is most commonly used for carpet cleaning, so you might choose to bundle your rug steam cleaning services with carpet cleaning throughout your home.

Professional rug and carpet clean


Holder ACT, Australia

Professional clean of rug and carpets in 3 small bedrooms. Rug 1900x2800 - Due date: Before Saturday, 18th Dec 2021

Bhoj and a colleague arrived on time and cleaned my kitchen, bathroom, carpet and rug. In terms of the work that was completed, Bhoj and colleague did a really good job. In terms of the negotiation, we agreed on $100 cash for a thorough clean of a small kitchen and 2 bathrooms. On arriving he requested $150. I feel is should have been flagged earlier as it made things a bit awkward particularly as others had quoted cheaper than $150 including air tasker fees. Seemed cranky when he received the agreed amount and not the 50% extra he requested (though I did tip $20 for the work of the carpet clean). 5 stars for the actual work completed, but suggest next time negotiating price beforehand instead of winning the job by undercutting other quotes and then upping the (cash) price to above those of the other quotes and appearing annoyed to receive pre-agreed amount.
