How Do I Know if My Area Rug is Getting Cleaned Correctly?

If you've had the same area rug in your home for a while, you might be beginning to think that it might be time for it to be cleaned. Between spills, messes, and kids who like running around on them all day long, a good area rug cleaning is very much underway with Zerorez®.

Area rug cleaning can be an overwhelming and confusing task. Because of the exponential amount of area rugs, there are out there, there is no cookie-cutter rug cleaning process.

Different Types of Area Rugs

Area rugs are typically separated into two categories- pile and no pile.


Pile refers to a type of area rug where the fibers are looped or curly. This type of rug is typically plush, soft, and luxurious.

No Pile

No pile is an area rug made without the looped fibers, designed to be less expensive and more durable. No pile carpet typically has a flat surface, but can also be plush or textured.

How to Clean an Area Rug

Cleaning an area rug can be pretty tricky. Depending on your type of rug, you will want to use different cleaning methods in order to preserve the integrity and quality of your rug. That being said, area rug cleaning needs to be done very carefully and specifically for your type of area rug. In fact, it is best to leave area rug cleaning to professionals.

The Zerorez® Area Rug Cleaning Process

Trust us, area rug cleaning can be tricky. If you are looking for rug cleaning near me, you have come to the right place! Not only do our technicians here at Zerorez® have extensive knowledge of rugs, but we also use a unique and patented cleaning process specifically just for area rugs.

First, our Master Rug Technician will begin with a thorough inspection of your rug. The purpose of this is to look for spots, stains, or any needed repairs before they begin cleaning your rug.

Next, we use the Zerorez® rug washing plant, equipped with a rug duster, that uses compressed air to gently remove dust, soil, dirt, etc. It is much more gentle and effective than shaking or beating a rug.

Following dust removal, your rug will then be placed in a 1200 gallon Zr Water® filled tank. A star paddle will help agitate the water to lift deeply embedded dirt in the delicate fibers.

To finish the area rug cleaning process, your rug is then placed in a specially constructed centrifuge where it will be rinsed with cool water and then dried through the power of the 900 rpm centrifuge. The spin-dry process reduces problems like dye run and shrinkage. For more information about our unique rug-cleaning process, click here!
