What’s the Deal with Area Rug Cleaning?

At AmSteam Carpet Cleaning, we offer a full concierge-style area rug cleaning service for our clients in Edmonton and surrounding areas. From start to finish, you’ll experience professional, experienced customer service that will have you coming back year after year. 

Our area rug cleaning service begins with free afternoon pickup. If you have your rugs and mats already rolled up and waiting for us at the front door, this will be a quick appointment. However, if you need some help moving furniture off of them, or rolling and carrying them, our technicians are more than happy to assist you with that too.

AmSteam Cleaning and Restoration Services is equipped with a large cleaning facility where our experienced technicians will take their time assessing, treating, and cleaning your rugs. Depending on their condition and what your rugs are made of, it can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to clean them. We will communicate an estimated turnaround time when you book your appointment.

Why do area rugs take longer than wall to wall carpet?

Increased soil factor: Area rugs are designed to absorb and trap soil, which is why they’re a favorite for high traffic areas – they keep the rest of your house clean! In fact, by the time you start to notice that it’s time for them to be cleaned, they are actually very soiled. 

Fringing: Although a beautiful addition to any area rug, fringing is a magnet for dirt and dust. Fringing is usually made from a natural fibre (often cotton), and therefore needs to be cleaned by hand with a special solution to restore it to its former glory. 

Fibre type: Area rugs come in a variety of fibres; these range from synthetic, to wool, to fine oriental silks. Most area rugs (with the exception of synthetic) have to be cleaned by hand to avoid damage to the delicate, natural fibers. 

Drying: Depending on the fibre type, we may be able to accelerate the drying process of your rug (by increasing air movement), but there is a good chance it will need to be hung to dry for best results. This takes time.

Once your area rug is thoroughly cleaned and dry, we will wrap it in plastic and set up a morning delivery time to bring it back to you.

As with all of our carpet cleaning services, we offer free estimates! All we need from you are the dimensions of your area rug and what it is made of. Not sure? Often there is a tag on the back with this information.
