How Can I Get My Rug Cleaned in My Apartment?


Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott AZ once again! I know someone may want to have their area rug cleaned in their home, especially if they have a small living space or live in an apartment building.  I recently read a question posed by a woman named Amanda in New York City, who wondered how to clean her rug in her apartment.  She didn’t have an outdoor space to drag her rug out to, so she was looking to just clean it in place.

Amanda also said that she vacuumed her rug regularly and spot cleaned as necessary but her rug was starting to look dingy.  It’s definitely time to get a full clean, then.  REgular vacuuming is a really great start for rug maintenance and can lengthen the amount of time needed between professional thorough cleanings. This isn’t a replacement for professional cleaning, of course.  When the lighter colors of your rug start to look dingy, it’s definitely time to get a thorough cleaning that you just can’t achieve in your apartment.


  1. You don’t have the equipment or cleaning solutions necessary to give your rug a proper and thorough cleaning.  Home cleaning will never be as deep a cleaning as one done by professionals.

  2. There’s no way to combat color bleeding or shrinkage when you clean in your home.

  3. If your rug sits on top of wood or stone floors, the cleaning solutions and water required to properly clean a rug can do some very serious damages to your floors.  Cleaning rugs on top of carpet isn’t even advised because of the possibility of color bleeding.

The best advice I can give to someone experiencing a similar problem is to keep diligent with vacuuming.  This is a great start and is a vital part of proper area rug care.  When your rug begins to look dingy or you’re starting to see wear patterns in it, it’s time for a professional rug cleaning with Arizona Oriental!
