AREA RUG DRY CLEANING SERVICE
Angel Dry rug cleaning offers in-home service – moisture never contacts your wood floors! Drop-off and delivery services are also available.
Leaders in Dry Rug Cleaning
Wool Safe® and Green Seal® Certified. Angel Dry’s proprietary very-low-moisture (VLM) rug cleaning process uses Green Seal® certified and Wool Safe® approved cleaning technologies that deep clean area rugs without the damaging effects of water and harsh chemicals. Your area rugs will look amazing and you’ll absolutely love that soft, residue-free feel between your toes.
Non-Toxic & Baby Safe. Unlike steam cleaning (hot water extraction) and immersion rug washing, Angel Dry specializes in plant-based, non-toxic, baby-safe, and residue-free rug cleaning. Excess water and harsh chemicals can damage rugs, leaving behind residues and moisture-loving microbes such as mold, mildew, and bacteria, which can lead to rapid re-soiling and contaminated rug fibers.
ANGEL DRY RUG CLEANING PROCESS
Angel Dry certified rug cleaning technicians will thoroughly inspect your rugs and take special care to ensure that each rug is cared for with attention to detail. Our ultra-low-moisture cleaning process is Wool Safe® approved, Green Seal® certified and does not leave behind any sticky residue. This ensures that your rugs are clean, sanitary, and soft to the touch.
Angel Dry’s unique low-moisture cleaning methods ensure that all of your rugs, whether cut pile or woven construction, are protected from the harmful effects of water, heat, and chemical damage. We use Wool Safe approved cleaning products that are safe for even for the most delicate antique vegetable-dyed rugs.
Most Common Types of Rug Fibers
Natural Fiber Rugs
Wool Rug Cleaning
Wool is one of nature’s most durable fibers and the most common type of natural fibers used in rugs. It is also a highly resilient fiber with exceptional insulation value. Wool rug fibers last longer and perform better when cleaned with a very-low-moisture process and maintained in a dry state. To prevent damage, excessive moisture should never be used to clean wool rugs. This can damage the fibers and degrade naturally occurring oils in wool fibers. Angel Dry wool rug cleaning services use Wool Safe
Silk Rug Cleaning
Silk is a natural fiber that is derived from silkworms and spider larvae. It is commonly known as the pound-for-pound strongest natural fiber. Each silk filament used to create silk thread is around two-denier in diameter. Due to their incredibly high tensile strength and resiliency, silk rugs can last hundreds of years and are considered the highest standard in quality. Silk rugs are best cleaned with a dry method that will not expose the fibers to damaging chemicals.
Sisal, Jute, and Seagrass Rug Cleaning
Sisal, jute, seagrass, mountain grass, and other “grass family” fibers, also known as cellulose fibers, are known for their incredible durability and organic textures. If your rugs are made of one of these types of faceyarns, you should avoid applying water to the rugs. Even a teaspoon of water can permanently damage the appearance of the fiber. Trust Angel Dry to clean these rugs properly with our ultra-low-moisture and dry compound methods of cleaning.
Viscose (Rayon) Rug Cleaning (Art Silk, Bamboo Silk)
If your rug is made of viscose, art silk, or bamboo silk, it is actually a synthetic fiber, processed from cotton, a cellulose fiber. These rugs are known for their incredibly soft texture and silky sheen. These rugs tend to be far less resilient than other natural or synthetic fibers and they can not be cleaned with wet methods. Angel Dry uses a dry rug cleaning process that can bring your viscose rugs back to life and help maintain their longevity.
Cotton Rug Cleaning
Cotton is another type of cellulose fiber that is known for its soft and natural texture. To avoid shrinkage and permanent damage to your cotton rugs, they should be cleaned with a very-low-moisture process. Though less common than other types of natural fiber rugs, cotton rugs can last for decades if cleaned and maintained properly. Angel Dry rug cleaning will expertly remove soils, stains, and residues from your cotton rugs, bringing them back to life with that soft, clean feeling that makes cotton rugs such a great addition to any living space.
Synthetic Fiber Rugs
Nylon Rug Cleaning
Nylon is one of the most common types of synthetic fibers used in modern area rugs. This super-resilient fiber is known for its high resiliency and soft, natural-feeling texture. Nylon is also incredibly resistant against stains if regularly cleaned and maintained. Like other synthetic fibers, you should avoid applying harsh chemicals or store-bought carpet spot removal products to nylon rugs. Angel Dry will clean your nylon rugs without adding excess moisture, helping to protect the longevity of the nylon fibers. Our very-low-moisture nylon rug cleaning process is residue-free, which ensures that you won’t have any sticky, crunchy residue in the rug fibers. This means your rug will feel clean and soft and stay cleaner longer.
Polypropylene Rug Cleaning
Polypropylene rugs have gained popularity in recent years. These rugs tend to be made with a wide range of colors and designs, giving consumers greater flexibility in design choices. Polypropylene rugs tend to attract soils and residues more than other types of fibers, so it is important to vacuum these rugs regularly and clean up spots and stains as soon as possible. When you’re ready to have your polypropylene rug cleaned, you can trust Angel Dry to get them looking and feeling as good as new.
Polyester Rug Cleaning
Polyester is a highly durable synthetic fiber found in many types of modern area rugs. These rugs tend to have a lower level of resiliency than other types of rugs, so it is important to vacuum regularly. When you notice your vacuum is not working well to lift up rug fibers, this is an indicator of excess soil and residue that has collected on rug fibers. When you notice this, it’s time for a deep rug cleaning from Angel Dry. We use a residue-free process that will ensure that rug fibers are not weighed down by chemical detergent deposits, which is important in maintaining the rug’s clean-ability and longevity.
Triexta Rug Cleaning
Triexta is a synthetic rug fiber that is derived from poly trimethylene terephthalate, similar to polyester fibers, but sharing the textural properties of nylon. Triexta rugs have grown in popularity in the past decade due to their nylon-like texture and appearance and the beautiful and wide-ranging selection of designs. These rugs are known for having greater resiliency and higher quality appearance compared to polyester, more similar to nylon. To help maintain the quality of your triexta rug, it is highly recommended that you use a dry rug cleaning process that does not leave behind a sticky residue. Angel Dry rug cleaning process will ensure that your triexta rug is clean, soft, revived, and residue-free.
Rug Cleaning Service Options
We’re here to help answer your questions. In most cases, we can give you an over-the-phone evaluation of your rugs before seeing them in person.

We are committed to helping you choose the best approach for general cleaning, deep cleaning, spot removal, odor treatment, and fiber protection.
Service Options: In-Home, Drop-Off, Delivery. Using our low-moisture rug cleaning methods, we are able to clean your rugs, where they lie, right on top of your hardwood or tile floors.

Properly Cleaning & Maintaining Your Rugs
Whether your rugs require interim refreshing, fiber care maintenance, high traffic treatment, spot removal, or odor treatment, Angel Dry rug care technicians are able to restore the beauty of just about every type of rug, preserving rug texture, color, and fiber / construction integrity.
Whether your rugs require interim refreshing, fiber care maintenance, high traffic treatment, spot removal, or odor treatment, Angel Dry can help. When you notice rug fibers matting or looking weighed down, it is probably time for a cleaning. Over time, soils and residues accumulate on rug fibers, making rug yarns heavy, which prevents your vacuum from picking up the attached soils and contaminant. You’ll be amazed at how clean and refreshed your rugs will look after an Angel Dry rug cleaning service.
Synthetic Fiber Rug Cleaning
Angel Dry cleans all types of rugs, both synthetic and natural fibers. Most synthetic rugs are made with polyester, nylon, polypropylene, olefin, or viscose “art silk” fibers. You should be able to confirm the fiber content, represented by percentages, by checking the corner label on the bottom (backing) of the rug. In some cases, the pile or woven yarns will be constructed of a different material than the backing, as listed on the manufacturer’s label.
If the fiber name listed is not one of the above mentioned, it is most likely a “trade name” or brand-specific (proprietary) derivation of one or more of the above-listed materials. You can do a quick google search of the fiber trade name to determine exactly what fiber type you have.
Since Angel Dry uses low-moisture, residue-free cleaning methods, you can rest assured that all of that gunk left behind in your rug will be safely removed. Our services are residue-free, environmentally friendly, and baby safe. In most cases, with the exception of heavily soiled spots and traffic lanes, your rugs will be dry and ready to walk on immediately after service.
WoolSafe® Approved Rug Cleaning
At Angel Dry, wool area rug cleaning is one of our specialties. Water and harsh chemicals can damage and shorten the longevity of wool rugs. To protect the natural oils and integrity of wool fibers, Angel Dry only uses very-low-moisture WoolSafe® approved cleaning methods.
Our unique counter-rotating brush machines are safe on woven wool rugs, cut loop constructions, shag (long yarn) wool, and low loop wool rugs and carpets. Our process is safe for all types of wool and your colors will remain rich and vibrant and will not bleed or transfer into adjacent lighter colored fibers.
When your wool rugs become matted or compressed, you’ll notice that your vacuum is no longer picking up much dirt and debris that is trapped in wool fibers. When this happens, that’s a great time to give us a call to protect your investment from unnecessary damage. The longer that soil and foreign substances remain in wool, the more likely it is to cause some damage or chemical change to the wool fibers and color.
We’re here to help answer your questions by phone, email, or chat. We can clean your rugs in your home, where they lie, or alternatively with our drop-off / delivery service.
When To Have Your Rugs Cleaned
When your vacuum is not performing well at removing soil from your rug, then it is probably due for a thorough cleaning. To illustrate the effect of soil accumulation on rug fibers, try placing the palm of your hand directly on a glass surface. At the right angle in a well-lit area, you will see exactly how much oil our skin, for example, the soles of our feet, transfers to rug fibers.
With regular use, pets, people, spills, dead skin cells, hair, dirt, microbes (e.g. dust mites), and other particulates become trapped in rug fibers. It’s like a domino effect of soil accumulation. You’ll notice that your vacuum is not lifting up the fibers or a slight matted appearance of your rug yarns. When you see this, it’s a good time to schedule a rug cleaning appointment.
Angel Dry rug cleaning technicians will remove all of that dirt, oil, residues, grime, even the chemical residues left behind from previous cleanings. After we clean your rugs, you will see and feel a distinct difference in the rug’s texture and appearance. Your vacuum will be more cooperative at removing new soil, not having to fight stuck-on dirt and residue. And you’ll notice improved resiliency in the rug yarns and fibers.
Low-Moisture Living Spaces
To illustrate the effects of excess moisture, try the following experiment. Run some clean water over a clean towel. Wring the towel out, then, leave it to dry in the sink overnight. The next day, when the towel is completely dry, you may notice a subtle pungent odor caused by mildew and bacteria. You may also feel a difference in texture, caused by microbial waste matter that spread throughout the wet fibers.
Even a clean towel with clean water will support a massive population explosion of microbial life. But unlike the towel in your experiment, carpet and padding can be filthy. After a traditional water-extraction carpet cleaning service, you may be left with thousands of pounds of wet carpet and padding throughout your home, resulting in microbial waste, residue, and allergens. Alternatively, very-low-moisture carpet cleaning leaves carpet 95 – 100% dry upon completion, creating a healthier microbe-free living environment.
