Top Rug Cleaning related questions
DIY rug cleaning is limited to your washing machine and everyday cleaning equipment. A professional cleaner will use the right cleaning methods to properly clean your rugs, no matter their size or materials.
Most rugs need cleaning around once a year, but if your rug is in a high-traffic area or shows dirt easily, you might want to get it cleaned every few months.
The best rug cleaning methods depend on your rug type. Popular methods include steam cleaning, dry cleaning, machine-washing, and hand-washing.
Most professional rug cleaners have their own steam cleaning equipment, which can be used to clean a range of upholstery, including carpets, curtains, and couches.
Most rugs can be cleaned in around 30-minutes, but may require up to a full day to dry before you can walk on them.
The cost of rug cleaning surfaces ranges from around £60-£130 when you hire a cleaner through Airtasker. Your costs will depend on the type of rug, the size of the rug, the number/type of stains, and how long it’ll take to treat.
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 loose 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.
