Area Rug Cleaning
If you have oriental rugs, you may forget exactly how special they are. We place them on the floor, place furniture and treat them the same way we treat any other floor covering. Basically, we walk all over them.
Rugs are made to take abuse. However, there are some things that will cause permanent damage or completely mess up your beautiful rugs. No matter how careful you are with vacuuming and spot removal, there comes a time when the deeply embedded soils, contaminants, pollutants and oils need to be removed.
Don’t’ wait until the carpet looks dirty. Wool has the ability to hide an amazing amount of soil. The gritty, particulate soils which we find in your rugs may cause irreversible damage to the fibers.

Our Rug Cleaning Process:
Our technicians will conduct an assessment on the area rug to identify its condition and cloth and determine the best procedure for optimal results.
2. Dusting and Pre-Vacuuming
The second and very important step is to prepare the carpet for the deep cleaning by dusting and pre-vacuuming the top and bottom of the carpet multiple times to remove the dry soil. Results in the amount of dry dirt removed, in many cases, can be surprising.
The fibers of the carpet are pre-conditioned with secure cleaning agents and agitated to loosen embedded soils.
4. Odor and Spot Treatment
In this step, we will perform any special treatment that is needed such as pet odor, spot removal, etc..
5. Hand Washing
The carpet is then closely hand-washed multiple occasions in our wash pit. Upon completing this step, we will utilize our state-of-the-art equipment to extract and remove as much moist as possible for optimum results and faster drying.
After a thorough and secure hand-washing, the rugs are subsequently placed for drying.
7. Inspection before customer delivery – Final Step
The rug will undergo a final inspection to ensure it is prepared to return to its owner. We will re-groom the carpet and fringes, and alternatively, use fiber protection to avoid the newly cleaned rug from being readily stained in the future. Now the rug is ready to be wrapped up and delivered back to your home.
Millers Carpet Cleaners’ team knows the importance of protecting and restoring the beauty of each carpet. Regardless of where it was woven, we think every rug is a unique work of art.
How to Clean Each Type of Rug Material
Rugs need to be vacuumed regularly and spot-cleaned whenever there’s a stain. However, once a year, they should be deep-cleaned. Always consult your rug’s care label to find out if it should be dry-cleaned, hand-washed, or just spot-cleaned.
Cotton and Synthetic Fiber Area Rugs
If your carpet is small enough, it may be thrown in your washing machine. Use a cold setting on a delicate cycle, and let it air-dry.
But if your carpet is too big for the machine, you can deep-clean it by hand. We recommend doing so on a sunny day since you will have to bring it outside to wash and dry it.
What You Will Need
- Carpet shampoo or liquid dish soap
- Laundry drying rack
- Soft-bristle brush
Step 1: Vacuum
Vacuum the surface of the carpet, then flip it over and vacuum the back of the carpet. The back of the rug also collects dirt and dust.
Step 2: Take It Outside
Once outdoors, unroll it and prop it up on a fence or porch railing. With a broom, whack the back of the carpet to find out if more dirt comes out. If you see dirt clouds escape, keep whacking the carpet until you cannot see clouds of dust and dirt anymore. But if your rug has a latex backing, don’t whack it too hard, or it may damage the latex.
Step 3: Shampoo Your Rug
Lay your rug back on a tarp or deck, but be sure it is close to a water supply, such as your garden hose. Follow the directions on the label of your carpet shampoo. Some shampoos need mixing with warm water. If you don’t have carpet shampoo, it is possible to take a bucket and make your own solution of warm water and a tablespoon of liquid dish soap. Before washing your entire rug, first spot-test the shampoo or solution in a small area of the rug to be sure that the colors don’t bleed.
If the colours do bleed, then take the carpet to a dry cleaner. If the colors don’t bleed, take your hose and rinse the carpeting. Pour the soap solution on a sturdy, soft-bristle brush and then work it in the rug. Let the rug to sit down for five minutes before rinsing it off.
Step 4: Dry It
Use a towel to soak up as much of the excess water as possible. Let it air-dry outside on a laundry drying rack. This may take 24 hours or longer. If you cannot leave the carpet outside for quite a long time, move it to your garage, basement, or laundry area to continue air-drying.
Step 5: Vacuum It
Put the carpet back in its place, and vacuum it .
Wool Area Rugs
What You Will Need
- Laundry detergent made for wool
- 2 buckets
Step 1: Vacuum
Vacuum the front and back of the carpet. In case you have the setting, turn off the beater bar as this will damage the fine fibers of a wool rug.
Step 2: Bring It Outside
Bring the carpet outside and prop it up on a railing or fence. With a broom, whack the back of it to get more dirt out. Repeat until you don’t find any dirt clouds.
Step 3: Wash It
Before washing, be sure to first move your hand throughout the rug. Sliding in 1 direction will feel soft, while another will feel rough. Always wash in the direction of the soft side. Always use a damp sponge and also not to completely soak the carpet fibers, or else they can become damaged.
In a skillet, mix cold water and a tablespoon of laundry detergent made specifically for wool. Take a second bucket and fill it with cold water. Dampen your sponge in the detergent and water solution, and test a small area of the carpet to make sure the colors won’t bleed. If the colours do bleed, then take the carpet to a dry cleaner. When they don’t bleed, continue washing the entire rug in small sections.
Step 4: Rinse It
Dampen your sponge in the next bucket of cold water, and lightly dab on the rug to wash it. Be careful not to soak the carpet.
Step 5: Dry It
With clean towels, soak up the excess water from the carpet. Then let it air-dry.
Jute, Sisal, and Bamboo Area Rugs
Since water weakens the fibers of these kinds of rugs, it is ideal not to deep clean them. For routine cleaning, vacuum the top and bottom of the rug, in addition to the floor under the rug.
To remove stains, dip a microfiber cloth into a combination of warm water and a tablespoon of laundry detergent. Then blot the stain and rinse with warm water. Blot it dry with a clean cloth, and let it air-dry.
Delicate or Antique Area Rugs
In case you have a delicate or antique rugs, consult a professional to ensure it is cleaned properly.
