San Diego Area Rug & Oriental Rug Cleaning

Are your rugs experiencing dirt buildup or fading? Let Great American Chem-Dry restore your area rugs back to their original beauty! Our cleaning products are different because they won’t ever leave sticky dirt-attracting residue, which means your rugs will stay cleaner longer. We give you the option of getting your rug cleaning in your home or at our rug cleaning facility. It takes about 5-7 business days at our shop. If we clean it at your home, we put a plastic barrier beneath the rug to protect your hardwood floors, tile, or other surface. We use dye blockers, so there is no color bleeding, guaranteed!

The Rug Cleaning Process At Our Facility

  1. Initial Dry Cleaning & Dusting – The main purpose of rug beating is to remove any of the dirt and grit that may be embedded into the rug fibers. If this is not done, the debris tends to stays between the fibers and eventually works its way into the base of the rug.
  2. Rug Bath – We give your rug a deep cleaning by fully submerging your area rug in our safe cleaning solutions, which work to remove any stains and dirt that is present. If your rug has pet stains, odors, or urine-soaked sections, we’ll apply our Pet Urine Removal Treatment (P.U.R.T.).
  3. Fringe Work – We take care of all of the little details. If applicable, we’ll inspect the fringe and perform any fringe detailing and if necessary, fringe bleaching.
  4. Drying – Your area rug will be hanged out to dry in our facility to ensure secure and proper drying.

We have a $40 pickup and delivery fee.

Authentic Gentle Cleaning

We understand that your oriental and area rugs were big investments that can be quite valuable. That is why you shouldn’t settle for less than Chem-Dry’s special care and professional attention to detail. We clean rugs the natural way – with air and carbonated water. Our process provides a comprehensive yet gentle cleaning for even your dirtiest and most delicate rugs. Plus, our unique drying process prevents wicking and works to preserve the dye within the rug fibers, keeping the rug’s colors looking bright and vibrant!

The San Diego rug experts from Great American Chem-Dry will first evaluate your rug in order to prescribe the right cleaning process. We follow some of the same century-old processes from the Middle East, the masters of some of the world’s finest rugs. In most situations, our cleaning process includes a pre-spray cleaner, a gentle submersion bath, and professional drying and fringe cleaning. If necessary, we will add our special urine removal prior to the rinse bath to get rid of any pet urine or odor. Each home and rug is different, so we strive to provide an individualized process to best clean each rug.

Why Do Rugs Get So Dirty?

We guarantee that nobody will handle your rug that is not certified and trained in this field of expertise. You can rest assured that only the safest and most effective methods will be used to for your valuable rug. We treat your rugs with the utmost care.

Beside the fact that your rugs will probably get the most foot traffic in your home, they also act as air filters! They trap dirt, dust, and allergens and prevent them from circulating to other rooms. The one hold up: area rugs can only do this properly if they are maintained and kept clean. Just as an air filter for your home ventilation system needs to be regularly replaced, your carpets, upholstery, and area rugs need to be regularly cleaned.

With extreme attention to detail, the professionals at Great American Chem-Dry provide high quality area rug cleanings that transform rugs to their original beauty while removing dirt and allergens. It is our goal to help you have a clean and healthy home that you and your family can enjoy!

“I called Great American Chem-Dry and I told them that I had pet stains & high traffic area on my rugs. Because I was honest with them about the pet stains & high traffic dirt areas, that I would have to be charged the $119 price, as opposed to the $99 upkeep price. I was fine with this over-the-phone quote and I had no surprises with final bill. The carpets look great, so I am very happy I called Great American Chem-Dry for the job. Thanks Rafael for being so courteous & all your hard work! I highly reccomend this company!”

Our cleaning products don’t leave behind any dirt-attracting residues and help your area rugs stay cleaner longer – providing a safe and healthy home environment for your family and pets.

How long does the entire process take?

Can you get out pet stains and smells?

Yes, we can! We are very successful when it comes to removing pet odors. We’ll soak the rug in our pet urine odor removal treatment, deep clean the rug, and then use our dehumidifier and air movers to dry the area rug.

Why should I have my area and oriental rugs cleaned?

Area and oriental rugs usually receive a lot of traffic. Just like carpets and upholstered furniture, area and oriental rugs act as air filters for the home, trapping dirt and dust. A thorough, professional oriental and area rug cleaning is the only way to remove the deep-down dirt, make this area of your home look nicer and ensure that all areas of your home stay clean and healthy.

Do you offer pickup and delivery?

Yes, we do! We’ll come to your home to pick up the area rug(s) you need cleaned, then deliver them back to your home as soon as we’re finished. We have a $40 fee for area rug pickup & delivery.

What is your process for cleaning area rugs?

We offer a complete area rug cleaning service. The process is washing and cleaning using the Hot Carbonated Extraction method only available from Chem-Dry. We specialize in pet urine removal, using the proper way to treat and remove the odor. We first use our rug duster to beat the dirt and soil from the area rug. We then give them a full rug bath and if necessary, do any fridge work (detailing, bleaching). Rugs are then hanged out to dry in our facility to ensure secure and proper drying.
