Area Rug Cleaning

Vacuuming alone won't keep your area rugs free from dirt, dust and allergens. To keep your area rugs clean and allergen-free we recommend a professional rug cleaning from the best rug cleaners.

At Stanley Steemer we use our patented hot water extraction carpet cleaning method in our area rug cleaning service. This is sometimes referred to as rug steam cleaning because of the steam it emits as we clean, but we don’t actually use steam to clean. Hot water extraction allows us to safely remove dirt and stains, leaving behind a clean area rug and no residue.

      From food to kids to pets, your home is filled with odors that can become trapped in the fibers of your rug. That’s why we recommend an application of our deodorizer.

      Our deodorizer acts to remove area rug odors, immediately neutralizing them at their source, rather than simply covering up the smell.
