Your Rug Cleaning questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does rug cleaning cost?

Rug cleaning costs $2 to $7 per square foot or $150 to $600 for a standard 8' x 10' area rug. Deep stains, excessive dirt, and hand washing cost more than average.

Many rug cleaners have a $50 to $100 minimum charge, plus $25 to $50 for rug pickup and delivery. Special treatments such as stain or moth protection cost $1 to $2 per square foot extra.

Is professional rug cleaning worth it?

Professional rug cleaning is worth it if you want to extend the lifespan of your rug and keep it looking like new. Cleaning also removes odors, stains, and pet damage.

Handwoven, Persian, and specialty rugs are more delicate than machine-made synthetic rugs. Professional hand-washing ensures that the rug is cleaned properly and carefully.

Where can I take an area rug to be cleaned?

You can either take an area rug to a local carpet cleaning shop, or you can pay a rug cleaner to pick it up and deliver it for you. Popular rug cleaning businesses include: 

  • Stanley Steemer
  • ChemDry
  • Oxi Fresh
  • ServPro

When should I get my area rug cleaned?

You should clean your area rug when it:

  • Has an unpleasant smell
  • Looks dull
  • Forms dust clouds when shaken or hit

What methods do rug cleaning companies use?

Most rug cleaning companies use hot water extraction, dry cleaning, steam, or handwashing. The method depends on whether the rug is machine-made, handmade, tufted, or hooked.

Can you use a carpet cleaner on a rug?

Some carpet cleaners are gentle enough to use on rugs, usually for spot cleaning. However, many carpet cleaners and their accompanying solutions are too harsh or powerful and may damage an area rug. Professional cleaning is often cheaper than renting or buying a carpet cleaner.

How do I choose a rug cleaning service?

Start by searching our list of rug cleaners, then:

  • Get at least three free estimates to compare.
  • Examine reviews and previous work on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Pick a company that is licensed, bonded, and experienced.
  • Get a detailed estimate and contract in writing before work begins.
  • Avoid making large payments up front.

After asking questions and verifying credentials, hire the best rug cleaning company in your area.

What questions should I ask rug cleaning contractors?

When looking for local rug cleaning companies, consider asking the following questions:

  • How long have you been in business?
  • Are you licensed, insured, and bonded?
  • Do you offer same-day service?
  • What cleaning method do you recommend for my rug?
  • How do you handle any accidental damage?
  • How long will the cleaning and drying process take?
  • Do you offer a warranty or guarantee for your work?
  • Can I have an estimate and contract in writing?
