Additional Area Rug Treatments

  • Spring Breeze Deodorizer™ is an odour counteractant applied along with our enzyme- based pre-conditioner which increases the strength of your cleaning by combating odours caused by smoke, foods, pet oils, dander and more while leaving behind a pleasant, fresh scent. Learn More.
  • BioTreat™ Pet Odour Neutralizer is an enzyme-based pet stain treatment that counters urine odours and stains by digesting biological materials that have soaked deeper than regular cleaning will reach. Learn More.
  • StainShield™ Carpet/Fabric Protector restores the factory applied stain resistant coating to your carpet or furniture. This protects it from stains, and reduces routine wear and tear. Learn More.

Handmade Area Rugs (Oriental, Persian, Indian)  

Handmade rugs require special care and maintenance to keep them looking their best.  To give your rug a deep, professional, restorative cleaning, we bring it to our dedicated area rug cleaning facility.  Once there, your area rug will receive a 4-step in-depth restorative process:

  1. Full Spectrum Lighting Inspection:  this allows us to clearly see any hidden spots and discolouration
  2. High Power Vacuuming: Our high-powered, industrial strength vacuum system removes trapped dust and debris from BOTH sides of your rug.
  3. Double Sided Rug Dusting: after vacuuming we use our Wolverine rug duster to beat the rug from both sides to shake loose deep down dust & debris that even regular vacuuming can’t get rid of.
  4. Special Attention to ALL spots and stains: (No extra charge)
  5. Hot Water Extraction: We use the same high heat cleaning equipment and the same HomeSafe cleaning products that we use in your home for the best cleaning results.
  6. Thorough Drying: We complete your area rug cleaning with a thorough drying on our special drying racks to avoid the risk of mildew caused by poor drying.

Our technicians examine area rugs closely for pulls, rips and tears to ensure we don’t cause any further damage while cleaning. If there are deeper or persistent stains that return after drying, these will be re-treated as necessary. If your rug has heavy staining from pets or other sources, it will be cleaned as necessary to restore it to the best condition possible given the age and wear of the rug.  This may include multiple cleanings.  

When the cleaning is complete, we will deliver your rug back to you for free!

Socrates picked up my rug on time and returned it on time. It’s so clean, it looks brand new! I’m thrilled with the service. I don’t know how it compares with other carpet cleaning places in terms of cost, but the quality is amazing! Socrates even brought it inside my house which is great because it was too heavy for me to do myself up my stairs. Now I just need to figure out a way to keep my dog off of the rug 😆Service: Clean area rugs
