Where can I have my area rugs cleaned?

Where can I have my area rugs cleaned?

For most area rugs, you won't need to take them anywhere for cleaning. If it's small enough, you can put them in your washer or, if not, by hand.

Always read the labels to see if your rugs are machine or hand washable–or not at all. If you have any doubts, seek your flooring professional's advice. Best to be extra cautious!

Area rugs are smaller carpets

Rather than stretching over the entire floor, like wall-to-wall, the dimensions are smaller. Many people layer them to accent or highlight.

Area rugs are available in various fibers, from nylon to wool and more. In addition, the rugs come in multiple patterns, colors, shapes, and sizes.

They can be stock items where the modular squares come in standard colors and sizes. Or, if you'd instead create your own, take your drawing to our area rug store in Boca Raton, FL, and we'll turn your vision into reality. 

And when it's custom, the sky's the limit. You'll create your color, texture, pattern, shape, and size.

Easy does it!

If you put rugs in the washer, use cold water and set it on "gentle." Then, lie it flat and let it dry naturally.

If you wash by hand, use a drop of carpet shampoo or gentle dish detergent. Wool carpets need a special laundry detergent formulated for wool.

The sunnier the day, the better!

A few cleaning tips

  1. Always vacuum before washing. Alternatively, you can vigorously shake area rugs –just be sure you get as much dust and loose dirt out as possible. 
  2. Err on the side of caution and follow labeling directions strictly. 
  3. Some natural fibers, such as jute, sisal, or bamboo, cannot be washed. This is because the water will damage the fibers.

Also, washing delicate rugs, whether vintage, Persian, etc., is not a good idea. Ask a flooring expert for advice on cleaning.
