Area Rug Cleaning

In Ocean County and Monmouth County, New Jersey

When you invest in a beautiful area rug for your home, you want to ensure it lasts a long time and continues to look great year after year. But improper cleaning methods can do more harm than good, and not all rug cleaners have the necessary training to know how to care for fine area rugs including wool rugs and handwoven rugs.

Rely on the rug cleaning experts at GM Carpet Care to take care of your precious area rugs. Our skilled team will identify the material and construction of your rug to ensure only the proper cleaning methods are employed, protecting your rug from damage during the cleaning process and ensuring its natural beauty is restored.

Your Area Rugs Deserve to be Handled With Care

  • Clean

Area rugs can hold several pounds of dirt. Regular cleaning protects against premature wear and rinses away soils, germs, and bacteria.

  • Restore

Rediscover the natural beauty of your area rugs and allow the original colors and patterns to shine through. Your rugs will look brand new and feel fresh and clean.

  • Protect

An application of 3M Scotchgard™ protects your rugs against soiling, spills, pet accidents, and fading to ensure your rug stays clean for as long as possible.

Caring for Your Area Rugs

Most fine area rugs should be cleaned every 1-3 years, depending on use, and high-quality area rugs can last for generations with the proper care.

GM Carpet Care offers both “in-home” and “in-plant” cleaning options for your different types of area rugs. As the customer, you have the choice in how your rugs are cleaned. Learn more about each option below.

“Very pleased with the quality of the rug cleaning. Had my 4 area rugs taken to the plant for in-house cleaning. There was dog urine on one of the carpets and it was expertly cleaned. Very happy with not only the cleaning service, but the professionalism of the workers who picked up and delivered the rugs. Would use again.”


“I’ve used this company previously and was very happy, this time I had an area rug taken out and cleaned along with being deodorized it came back within a week and it was perfect, like a new carpet which is 12 years old, and the first time being professionally serviced. I would recommend this company to anyone.”

Trust Us With Your Heirloom Rugs: GM Carpet Care Area Rug Cleaning Services

Keep your rug bright, colorful, clean and beautiful. Most rug manufacturers recommend that their rugs be professionally cleaned every 12-24 months. Remember to check your warranty, as some manufacturers now make professional cleaning a compulsory condition of their wear warranties.

On hard floor surfaces like tile and wood, dirt and soil are easily seen and wiped off. It’s not the same with rugs and dirt can find it’s way deep into the fibers where it can’t easily be vacuumed out of your rug.

Daily activity such as walking and sitting on your rug can cause this dirt to rub against the fibers. This abrasive action will deteriorate the fibers in your rug and will require you to replace your rug prematurely. We use a cleaning system to reach this dirty in our Toms River facility that deep cleans your rug and flushes dirt and other environmental pollutants from the fibers with safe and effective cleaning products.

All of the products that we use are non-toxic and bio-degradable for your peace of mind and for the environment. How can your help your rug stay clean after our professional cleaning? If you vacuum on a regular basis, that will help. Be careful of fringe and the height of the beater bar. Consider not using the beater bar. Use a quality under layer, pad or cushion to allow for cleaning and prevent slippage.
