Rug cleaning method

The two main methods for cleaning rugs are steam cleaning and chemical cleaning. Costs are roughly comparable; however, a steam-cleaned rug usually takes longer to dry. Steam cleaning, which may also be called hot water extraction, is the most frequently used method. Professional carpet cleaning equipment uses pressure to wash the carpet or rug with hot water and cleaning chemicals, which loosens dirt, and then suctions the dirt and water from the carpet. It usually takes a full 24 hours, on average, for the carpeting to completely dry, which may require staying off it as much as possible. Steam cleaning does not void most carpeting warranties, so it is generally more often recommended by manufacturers.

Dry cleaning, which is also called low moisture cleaning, uses chemicals and very little water to clean carpeting or rugs. In general, it doesn’t remove as much dirt steam cleaning, but it is faster. A dry cleaning machine uses a brush or sprayer to loosen dirt and immediately vacuum it up.
