Area rugs are becoming increasing popular in the décor of homes. A great way to warm hardwood or tile floors, area rugs represent every fiber imaginable. In addition, they are designed with bright colors in mind that need special care during the cleaning process.

First Response Carpet Cleaning is a full service carpet cleaning company that specializes in Area Rug Cleaning. Servicing the Long Island, NY and surrounding areas, we have been providing excellent customer service since 1991.

Area rug cleaning requires a special process to complete. Many of our competitors address area rugs as they would cleaning a carpet. This technique is not only incorrect, but could also create extensive damage to your rug.

This is why you want to choose a professional company who understands the proper techniques and procedures. If you would like a member of our team to take a look at your specialized rug, then give us a call at 631-587-5300 for a free estimate.


  • Vacuum the entire area: The first action our technicians will take will be to remove any loose soils, dirt, dust and grime present in your carpet. Vacuuming also addresses any animal hair or dander that has accumulated in your area rug.
  • Flip the rug: The vacuum will not collect all of the dirt and debris, so the next step is to flip the rug and use another extraction tool to address the remaining grime. Using harmonic vibration technology, the rest of the dust, dirt and grime is gently shaken out from the deep fibers, preparing the rug for a full clean.
  • Lay Rug in a pH balanced solution bath: Once the dirt has loosened we lay the rug in a pH balanced bath. Using a large brush we gently sweep the solution over the rug. The solution is very important in this process because if you choose a company that uses a harsh cleaning solution, they could cause irrevocable damage to your area rug. This damage could include bleeding, tears in the fibers or fading.
  • Gently extract the water: After the rug as soaked for the required amount of time, we will remove the area rug from the bath and begin the extraction process. First Response Carpet cleaning uses a gentle, but effective floor wand, to help protect the fibers of rug.


If you are looking to protect and clean your area rug, but want to make sure it is done right, give First Response Carpet Cleaning a call. We understand that area rug cleaning requires a different cleaning process and will ensure that we protect your investment.

Certified by the IICRC, our technicians are fully trained to handle all types of wool, fibers and fabrics. In addition, our pH balanced solutions keep colors from bleeding into other areas of the rug.
