Our comprehensive washing approach is at the heart of our cleaning process.

Step 1: Initial Inspection at Rug Drop Off or Pick Up
During the initial inspection, the rug is carefully examined for any visible damage, stains, or areas that require special attention. The type of material, construction, and any specific cleaning instructions are noted. This step helps determine the appropriate cleaning methods and ensures that any potential issues are addressed before proceeding further.

Step 2: Follow Up Detailed Rug Inspection After the initial inspection
a more detailed examination of the rug is conducted. This includes assessing the extent of soiling, identifying any hidden stains or damage, and determining the best cleaning approach for the specific rug. This thorough inspection ensures that the cleaning process is tailored to the rug’s needs and helps achieve optimal results.

Step 3: Dusting
Dusting is a crucial step in the rug cleaning process, especially for heavily soiled rugs. Specialized equipment, is used to remove dry soil, dust, and debris embedded deep within the rug fibers. This step helps prepare the rug for the subsequent cleaning stages and ensures a more effective overall cleaning result.

Step 4: Immersion Wash and Rinse
In this step, the rug is immersed in a solution of water and gentle cleaning agents specifically formulated for rug cleaning. The rug is thoroughly agitated to loosen dirt, stains, and odors from the fibers. After washing, the rug is rinsed to remove any remaining detergent residue, leaving it clean and refreshed.

Step 5: Centrifugal Water Removal
After washing and rinsing, excess water is removed from the rug using a centrifugal extraction machine. This high-speed spinning action helps extract water from the rug fibers, significantly reducing drying time and minimizing the risk of mold or mildew growth.

Step 6: Fresh Air Rug Drying
Once excess water has been removed, the rug is hung or laid flat in a well-ventilated area to air dry naturally. Proper air circulation is essential to ensure thorough drying and prevent moisture-related issues. Drying times may vary depending on factors such as humidity levels and the type of rug material.

Step 7: Rug Combing, Brushing, and Fluffing
After drying, the rug undergoes grooming processes to restore its appearance and texture. Combing and brushing techniques are used to align the rug fibers, remove any matting or tangling, and enhance the overall look of the rug. This step helps revive the rug’s softness and fluffiness, giving it a fresh and inviting appearance. 

Step 8: Rug Fringe Cleaning and Grooming
Special attention is given to cleaning and grooming the rug’s fringe, which is prone to collecting dust, dirt, and grime. Gentle brushing and specialized cleaning solutions are used to lift stains and restore the fringe’s original color and texture. This step adds the finishing touches to the rug cleaning process, leaving the fringe looking clean and well-maintained.

Step 9: Post Cleaning Vacuuming and Inspection
Once the rug has dried completely, it undergoes a final vacuuming to remove any remaining debris or loose fibers. A thorough inspection is also conducted to ensure that the cleaning process has been completed to the highest standards and that the rug meets the customer’s satisfaction.

Step 10: Optional Services Rug Protector, Insect Repellent & Rug Pad
As an optional service, a rug fiber protector can be applied to help guard against future stains and soiling, prolonging the rug’s lifespan. Additionally, insect repellents may be applied to protect the rug from damage caused by pests such as moths. Rug pad installation services are also available to provide added cushioning and prevent slipping, enhancing the rug’s comfort and safety. These optional services offer customers additional peace of mind and help maintain the rug’s beauty and integrity over time.

Thank you for your very timely service! Just speed my 2 rugs out and am so amazed at both cleaning jobs. That you were able to remove the stain, I wondered if it could be salvaged and It is lovely. Couple that with a very good repair job on frayed end, superb job. I’m very pleased.

We have had D&N clean a large 16x26 rug, small rugs for entries and everything in between. They do a great job every time. PLUS, and this is a real plus our in our book, it is a family owned and operated business. They care that the rug they send you home with is clean. We won't go anywhere else.

We have been using Day and Nite Rugs for years. Not only do they do a fantastic job, but they go above and beyond to make everything as good as new. Steven, the owner, is an incredibly hard worker, friendly and professional. It’s hard to find a family business of this quality anywhere anymore. 5 stars.

Day & Nite has cleaned my family’s carpets and rugs for years and we’ve never had an issue. All odors are removed and we’ve always had 1-2 dogs! They also have in house rug repair and the services are fantastic, especially for pieces that have been chewed on (again, our dogs).Also, I love that it’s a family owned business. The customer service has been fantastic and they are super knowledgeable. Feels good to shop local.
