With so much foot traffic, it’s important to invest in professional area rug cleaning in Philadelphia, and the surrounding areas. But who can you trust to effectively clean your rugs?

Similar to carpets and upholstered furniture, area rugs act as air filters for the home, trapping dirt and allergens and preventing those unhealthy elements from circulating to other rooms. But area rugs are only able to do this properly if they are kept clean.

Just as an air filter for your house ventilation system needs to be regularly replaced, your carpets, upholstery, and area rugs need to be regularly cleaned. The professionals at Mainline Chem-Dry provide high-quality area rug cleaning in Philadelphia, PA, that is focused on care and attention to detail. Our cleaners will protect and revitalize your cherished rugs.

Why Hire an Expert?

You wouldn’t send your car, a substantial investment, to a mechanic you haven’t fully vetted. Nor would you bring in someone to work on your refrigerator who wasn’t fully qualified. You would want an expert technician to work on each of these, someone who knows the best way to keep these possessions in prime condition. And just like your car or your refrigerator, you shouldn’t have your rugs taken care of by just anyone.

Chem-Dry’s professionals are trained to clean all types of rugs, from common area rugs to expensive and delicate Oriental or Persian rugs. For our area rug cleaning services in Philadelphia, PA, we use specialized tools and equipment designed for whatever kind of rug you have, whether that is synthetic, wool, cotton, silk or one of many other types.

Our effective, yet gentle area rug cleaning and drying process preserves the dye within the fibers of your rug, leaving the colors in your rug vibrant and fresh. It wouldn’t make sense to clean your carpet or area rug only to have it come out in the end looking even worse than when you started. At Chem-Dry, we understand this, and we do everything we can to make sure your area rug looks beautiful, vibrant and refreshed at the end of the cleaning process.

How to Prepare for a Chem-Dry Oriental rug Cleaning in Philadelphia

Step 1: Remove clutter

Our Chem-Dry area rug cleaners in Philadelphia, PA, will vacuum before the main cleaning process, but larger clutter like shoes, toys, and the like can get in the way. Not only that, these items can be a tripping hazard. By removing these items from the area rug, you can help ensure that your rug is cleaned thoroughly, efficiently, and safely.

Step 2: Remove light furniture

Many people place their area rugs underneath coffee tables and other small pieces of furniture.  While these focus pieces of furniture can do wonders to tie a room’s decor together, it can get in the way of a cleaning. Our technicians at Mainline Chem-Dry are experts at oriental rug cleaning, but they are not licensed movers. Set furniture pieces—such as coffee tables, plant stands, and floor lamps—to the side in a nearby room, then move them back after the cleaning, once the rug is dry.

Step 3: Note stains and other focus areas

Sometimes, once you’ve noticed a stain or a flaw on your area rug, that can become all you see whenever you look at the rug. We certainly want to make sure that you are completely satisfied once we have completed your area rug cleaning in Philadelphia, PA so if there are any particular areas where you want extra care, take a note of them and share that with the cleaner.

Step 4: Make preparations for your pets

A new person in your house, particularly one bringing new equipment and new smells with them, can potentially agitate your pets, so make sure that you have prepared for this. It might be wise to have your pet stay with a friend or relative, or even closed into another room or the backyard.

Step 5: Clear a path

It can be easy to forget that a technician needs to get himself and his equipment from his vehicle to your front door and from your front door to the rug. Make sure that there is a pathway he can take in order to clean your oriental rug safely and efficiently. Some technicians use equipment that is attached to the van, so it may be a good idea to move cars out of the way so that his van is as close to the entrance as possible.
