Our Rug Cleaning Process – Manhattan

In order to maintain a top-notch service to our loyal and new clients, we use state of the art rug cleaning equipment. Our facility has the best tools and uses environmentally friendly cleaning solutions to get to finest results. In addition, we have a staff of skillful artisans who knows how to repair any rug with such finesse you won’t notice the repair.


We start by examining the rug: the origin of the rug, the condition of the rug, the type of fiber to see if it’s wool or silk or cotton or the mix of these fibers.
We then do a thorough and detail examination of the condition of the rug or carpet. Does this rug have any color fading due to wear of from the sun, is there any urine odors, are there bleeding color issues, stains, traffic dirt, and  / or discoloration of any sort? All these details need to be considered prior to cleaning the rug.

Dusting Process

If there is a need for dusting the rug, we use a huge tumbler machine specifically designed for this purpose. Rug dusters do an amazing job of removing dry soil and contaminants. By getting so much detritus out of rugs pre-wash, dusting greatly reduces wash time.

Soak and Washing Process

In some cases, prior to washing, a rug needs a complete soaking in order to eliminate odor and /or to sanitize the rug. In cases of water damage, we do a full rug soaking and disinfecting treatment to kill bacteria and prepare the rug for a finishing hand wash.

A stain removal process may be applied before or after a rug has been washed. It depends upon the type of stain. Some rug stains are easier to see and treat after the wash, some before.
A thorough hand washing is given to all rugs. Some flat woven rugs such as Kilim rugs are washed on both sides. Depending upon a rug’s “traffic dirt”, a second washing may be required.

Additional Cost for Moth Damage Rug Cleaning Services

Moth damage caused by an infestation requires special treatment.
Rugs that have moth damage are given a lime wash. The rug soaks in lime bath. A special enzyme soap is used during the hand wash segment to ensure every moth egg is killed.

Our Cleaning Solutions

We use ph balanced very mild soaps during the process of washing all rugs to ensure a plush and softness to the finished cleaned rug.

The Softening Pile Process

This process is used for rugs whose pile has become stiff or hard due to pet urine that was not properly or immediately professionally cleaned. Water damage that causes dry rot in a rug also will require a softening process to prepare the rug for washing.

When the washing and rinsing of a rug is completed it is moved to a control temperature room where the rug will dry under the circulation of air streams. By drying properly, this method assures that the rug will retain its softness.


After a thorough rug cleaning, our repair experts check for any rips, holes or other damage caused by “wear and tear”. We also carefully look at the fringes and the binding. A deeper look is needed especially if the rug was in storage and there is a fear of moth damage.

Protecting Your Rug

At Agara rug cleaning NYC, we use 3M oil based Scotchgard to protect the rug from foot traffic. This process should be repeated every 3-5 months to ensure the protection remains effective

Final Inspection

A final inspection of the rug is done once the rug exits the drying room. The newly cleaned / repaired rug is vacuumed, groomed, and then wrapped in plastic. It is now ready to be delivered back to the customer’s home / apartment / office.
