Your burning questions: answered

Who cleans area rugs?

Like your carpets, area rugs should ideally be cleaned at least once a year to remove dust and dirt and help them last longer. In general, carpet cleaning professionals also clean area rugs. Some rug cleaners bring their cleaning equipment to your home, while others remove your area rugs and clean them at their facilities. Either way, the rug should be cleaned with the solution most appropriate to its specific fabric and construction. It should also be completely dry before you return it to the floor.

Is it worth getting rugs professionally cleaned?

It is worth the money to get rugs professionally cleaned if they’re fragile, have tough-to-remove stains or you don’t know how to clean them. When in doubt, contact a pro to clean your rugs.

How often should you clean your rugs?

This depends on your rug’s condition — and the conditions in your home. If your rug is located in a high-traffic area like a mudroom, entryway or hallway, you may need to clean it more often. Families with small children or pets should clean their rugs more often as well. Those with allergies should also clean their rugs more often, as should those who wear their shoes inside.

What is the best way to clean a Persian rug?

Cleaning a Persian rug often requires utilizing a vacuum, rug shampoo, water, a brush or sponge and bucket. However, be careful of these common DIY mishaps: 

  • Using the wrong shampoo or cleaning solution
  • Not using enough water (or using too much)
  • Cleaning your rug too often

To ensure you don’t accidentally ruin your rug, you might want to consider hiring a professional cleaner with plenty of experience and expertise.

How much does it cost to clean a rug?

Area rugs are typically found in high-traffic areas of the home, like hallways and entryways, so they collect more dirt and stains than simple vacuuming can handle. Similar to carpet cleaning, professionals can come to your home to deep-clean your area rugs. The national average cost for rug cleaning ranges from $80 to $120, but may be higher or lower depending on the rug’s size and fiber type. Rug cleaners generally charge by the square foot; for example, a standard 8-foot by 10-foot rug costs an average of $100 to clean. Natural fiber rugs, such as wool or silk, are usually more expensive to have cleaned than synthetic rugs. A carpeting cleaning company may charge on average $1.50 per square foot to clean a synthetic rug, $2 per square foot for a wool rug, and $3 per square foot for a silk rug. Some delicate rugs need to be washed by hand, which increases the price. Carpet cleaning companies often offer additional services, such as removing odors or applying moth deterrent, which can add 20 cents to 25 cents per square foot.

How much does it cost to clean an area rug?

Whether your pet had an accident, the party got too wild, or your kids can’t control their juice boxes — we all need rug cleaning from time to time. In fact, even if you don’t have a spill or spot, it’s wise to have your area rug cleaned approximately once a year to keep the rug fibers in good health. In general, rug cleaning prices depend on the square footage of the rug, what the rug is made of, whether any repairs are needed, and whether you require the pro to travel to your location or provide pickup and drop-off services. Nationally, average area rug cleaning prices range from $80 to $120.

Wool and silk area rugs typically cost more to clean than rugs made from synthetic fibers because the more delicate materials take more care and may require specialized cleaning fluids. For example, a synthetic rug may cost $1.50 per square foot to clean; a wool, cotton, or chiffon rug could be $2 per square foot; and a silk or Navajo wool rug could cost $3 per square foot. The two most common rug cleaning methods are steam and chemical cleaning. The costs for the two methods are often the same, although a steam-cleaned rug will take longer to dry due to the moisture. If your area rug needs odor removal, moth deterrent, or hand washing, there will be additional charges.

Reviews for Oakland Park rug cleaners
Joel P.
Hired Mike to come clean my area rug. He was very professional, even wore a mask when entering my home. He was even able to come over on a Sunday to give a quote. Never having the rug cleaned before, we discussed what he would do to the rug to make it like new! He provided a quote that day and I thought it was a fair price. (I had one other quote via the app, but it was about double in cost). Returned the rug two weeks later, smelling fresh and looking new!!

Very easy to talk to about your expectations for the project. Did a great job on cleaning my wool area rug.

I will never go anywhere else for my rugs or furniture to be cleaned ! Michael is the best !! He’s very friendly , professional , and only wants to return a product to make his customer very happy. That’s how we were today. I never thought our rug would look brand new again- with the dirt and pet stains it had endured. It came back brand new ! Micheal is the only one we will use for our rugs and next our couch to clean. Thank you so much !!

Micheal was very professional and friendly and gave me a decent price to clean my rug. He came and picked it up and dropped it back off within 10 days. My white rug is white again! Thank you so much. Highly recommend Best Look Inc.

Zachary arrived on time and quickly got to work. He cleaned 3 - 8X10 area rugs - one of which was stained with cat pee. He managed to get the stains out and they look great. Highly recommended.

Our house was in need of TLC after a couple of accidents from our pets my house smells AMAZING now and my rug is so clean! We will be having them back when we move out as well. Very helpful and responsive, not pushy but listened to my concerns and got the job done. Thank you!!!!
