Area Rug Cleaning
Area rugs, like carpets and upholstered furniture, act as air filters for your home, trapping dirt and allergens and preventing them from circulating to other rooms. However, area rugs can only do this effectively if they are regularly cleaned and maintained. Just as air filters in your home ventilation system need to be replaced regularly, your carpets, upholstery, and area rugs need to be cleaned regularly. Chem-Dry Nona’s professional area rug cleaning services focus on care and attention to detail, restoring your rugs to their original beauty while removing dirt and non-living allergens.
What Hiring an Expert Means to You
When you have expensive possessions like your car or refrigerator, you only trust them to a qualified expert. The same should apply to your area rugs.
Chem-Dry professionals are trained to clean all types of rugs, from common area rugs to expensive and delicate Oriental or Persian rugs. We use specialized tools and equipment for each type of rug, whether it’s synthetic, wool, cotton, silk, or one of many other types.
Our effective and gentle area rug cleaning and drying process preserves the dye within the fibers of your rug, leaving the colors vibrant and fresh. We understand that you don’t want your rug to come out looking worse than when you started, so we take every precaution to ensure that your area rug looks beautiful, vibrant, and refreshed at the end of the cleaning process.
Some cleaning products used by other services leave behind residues that can actually attract more dirt and dust. Our cleaning products don’t leave behind any sticky, dirt-attracting residues, which means that your area rugs stay cleaner longer.

How to prepare for a Chem-Dry oriental rug cleaning
Step 1: Remove clutter
Our Chem-Dry area rug cleaners will vacuum before the main cleaning process, but larger clutter like shoes, toys, and the like can get in the way. Not only that, these items can be a tripping hazard. By removing these items from the area rug, you can help ensure that your rug is cleaned thoroughly, efficiently, and safely.
Step 2: Remove light furniture
Many people place their area rugs underneath coffee tables and other small pieces of furniture. While these focus pieces of furniture can do wonders to tie a room’s decor together, it can get in the way of a cleaning. Our technicians are experts at oriental rug cleaning, but they are not licensed movers. Set furniture pieces—such as coffee tables, plant stands, and floor lamps—to the side in a nearby room, then move them back after the cleaning, once the rug is dry.
Step 3: Note stains and other focus areas
Sometimes, once you’ve noticed a stain or a flaw on your area rug, that can become all you see whenever you look at the rug. We certainly want to make sure that you are completely satisfied once we have completed your area rug cleaning, so if there are any particular areas where you want extra care, take a note of them and share that with the cleaner.
Step 4: Make preparations for your pets
A new person in your house, particularly one bringing new equipment and new smells with them, can potentially agitate your pets, so make sure that you have prepared for this. It might be wise to have your pet stay with a friend or relative, or even closed into another room or the backyard.
Step 5: Clear a path
It can be easy to forget that a technician needs to get himself and his equipment from his vehicle to your front door and from your front door to the rug. Make sure that there is a pathway he can take in order to clean your oriental rug safely and efficiently. Some technicians use equipment that is attached to the van, so it may be a good idea to move cars out of the way so that his van is as close to the entrance as possible.

Choosing Chem-Dry Nona was the best decision I made. The professionalism and the work offered are the best I've ever had. I recommend it to everyone who asks me for references. Thank you Daniel and team!
Excellent job. Excellent service. The thing that impressed me most is how careful they are of your property. Very courteous and considerate. I will continue to be your best customer
When I called Chem-Dry Nona, I was given an appointment at a time convenient to me right away. Carlos and a lady work partner were assigned to clean the carpet at my house and did a wonderful job. They were both respectful and courteous. The previous owners had pets and there were a few visible stains in the living room area and a foul odor in the master bedroom. They worked quickly, took the time to move smaller furniture around, and paid special attention to the stained areas. Best of all, they eliminated the odor and now my house has a pleasant smell. The old carpet looks like new and feels fluffy under my feet. I recommend Chem-Dry Nona.
