Cleaning Services for Area Rugs

The first step in washing a rug is to decide on the appropriate cleaning method. At Duke Brothers, we have the training to know how to test a rug to see if it’s washable and what to do if it’s not. Based on those results, we choose the appropriate cleaning method:

  • Wet clean and hand wash
  • Dry cleaning
  • Low-moisture cleaning
  • Encap solution, also called bonnet cleaning
  • Steam cleaning

Wet Cleaning and Hand Washing

Our most popular service is wet cleaning and handwashing. We put much time and care into wet cleaning your prized rugs. Here’s our basic multi-step process:


Inspect the rug


Color test the rug to make sure color does not run and it won’t fall apart


Dust the rug with rug dusters


Take it to the wash floor, wet the rug, and wash and scrub both sides


Thoroughly rinse


Place it in the centrifuge. Rinse and spin again. It comes out 90% dry


Hang on a rug rack and inspect


Do touch-up work and clean the fringe


If they smell bad or don’t look right, we repeat the entire process again


We prep them, wrap them in brown paper, and ready them for transport back to the owner

Add-on services

Depending upon the condition of your rug, we offer add-on services to target specific problems including rug repairs, rug moth treatment, protectant, fringe whitening, color correction, rug conditioner, deodorizer, and pet urine and odor removal services. Removing pet urine is a big problem for many rug owners. We can often successfully remove pet urine, but much depends on your initial treatment of the problem and how much urine is in the rug pad.
