Read our nine step process

Our 9 Steps for Rug Cleaning

Step 1: Pre-Inspection

When we receive* your rug, it will be thoroughly inspected.

Step 2: Dry Soil Removal

We use a variety of techniques to “dust” rugs from the front and back.

Step 3: Pre-Condition

Depending on fiber content and soiling type, the rug will be pre-treated to emulsify the soils.

Step 4: Pre-Spot and Fringe Preparation

Any potentially difficult spots will be pre-treated with special solutions to increase the chances of removal. The fringe is also pre-treated for maximum soil removal and cleaned by hand.

Step 5: Shampoo

Most rugs are cleaned with an Oriental Rug Shampoo that is specially designed to get maximum cleaning while protecting sensitive natural fibers.

Step 6: Rinse or Wash

Depending on the type of rug it will be rinsed with extraction equipment on both sides or washed in a wash pit designed especially for Oriental Rugs.

Step 7: Speed Dry

Once the soil is rinsed away, the rug is dried flat or hung to dry in a controlled environment.

Step 8: Finishing

When the rug is dry, it is combed and finished with soft groomers made for specialty rugs.

Step 9: Post Inspection

Our cleaning specialist will give the rug a final inspection and release it for pick up or delivery. Paper and ty-vac wrapping available for short or long-term storage available for an additional charge. If delivered*, we will lay the rug for you.

*Pickup and delivery available at an additional charge

“I recently needed several rug services: rug cleaning, disposal of old rug pads and purchase of new pads. I selected Alameda Carpet and Upholstery because of their competitive pricing and a friend’s recommendation. They far surpassed my expectations.

Their service was first rate in all regards. The cleaning was excellent. They came when they said they would. They even laid out my heavy rugs for me, saving backbreaking effort. A totally positive experience…”
