How much will it cost to clean my rug?
Rug cleaning is priced at different rates, depending on size, fibre construction and standard of clean. That is why we offer 3 options to suit everybody’s budget. When you ask for a quote, make sure that you measure the rug, including the fringes, and check the identification tag on the back.
How long will it take to clean my rug?
Cleaning and washing a rug is a delicate process, and the process does not get rushed. We always allow 7 to 10 working days for most rugs. Some hand-made rugs can be longer. We offer several cleaning options. Option 1, our ‘Standard Maintenance clean’, is a 24-hour turnaround. Talk to one of our staff to see what is involved in this procedure, or see the Rug Cleaning Options page for more details.

How often should I clean my rug?
It is important to clean your rug regulary at home. A vacuum cleaner is sufficient for weekly maintenance of at least 3 times a week. All rugs require cleaning as they live on the floor. Regular cleaning can also include taking the rug outside and beating it over the clothesline. Beating with a large paddle-style object is great for dislodging dirt and grit. However, this is not recommended for damaged or weaker rugs. Cleaning gives your rug new life and keeps your family indoor life healthy! Rugs should be professionally cleaned twice a year.
