Can I shampoo my area rugs?

Area rugs in Norman, OK, add beauty, protection, and durability to your flooring and work in various rooms throughout your home. These considerations offer a great place to start if you're looking for a perfect match for your décor or other exciting features.

You may also wonder about the best ways to clean these pieces once they're in place, and we can help with that too. So, here's some information about shampooing these products.

The facts about shampooing


Shampooing works well for regular carpeting because the backing is designed for from-the-top cleaning. However, carpet runners and products like them are not generally intended for this type of cleaning unless they're made from carpet remnants.

Most area rugs, especially high-end ones, are constructed with tightly wrapped and woven fibers that tend to hold dirt. So, the proper technique combines dusting with immersion washing.

If your rug was made from regular carpeting, you could use a shampooer, but be careful if the binding features are fringing. These can get caught in the rotary brushes, rip off the fringing, and damage the rug.
