Area Rug and Oriental Cleaning

Let Chem-Dry of Cape Cod help you take care of your area carpets!

You may have a brand new, beautiful area carpet.  To keep it looking fresh and new, we recommend an application of Chem-Dry Protectant.  If you have an older area carpet, you want it to look the best that it can.  Have Chem-Dry of Cape Cod clean and protect it!  For expert handling of your area carpets, one phone call to Chem-Dry of Cape Cod solves all of your concerns.

You may drop off your area carpets for cleaning and protecting at our facility in Harwich, or you may schedule a pick-up.  For a reasonable fee, we pick up and return the area carpets to you.

Upon receipt of your area carpets, we inspect each one for condition, soil levels, wear, fading, spots, stains, odor, pulls, need for repair, etc.  If an area carpet is wet upon its arrival at our facility, we treat it with a mold deterrent and hang it to dry.

Cleaning process

Carpets are gently placed on the cleaning area floor and vacuumed.  Our skilled technician inspects the area carpet for soil, and, at this time, he applies spotting agents as needed. Next, the area carpets are cleaned with “The Natural”, a clear, non-toxic, plant-based solution. 

Protecting Process

For a brand new carpet, we apply the Protectant and hang your carpet to dry in our temperature- and humidity-controlled carpet bay.  For an older carpet, we apply the Protectant following the cleaning.


After your carpet is cleaned and/or protected, we hang it in our temperature- and humidity-controlled carpet bay to allow a speedy and efficient drying process.

Final Inspection and Wrapping

Each carpet is inspected to check the quality of cleaning and for any issues that might need attention.  Notes are made as to the condition of the carpet, and the carpet is then approved for wrapping.  Your carpet is rolled and wrapped in brown kraft paper to ensure that it is kept clean and free of any contaminants before being returned to you.


We repair braided rug stitching. We will need to inspect the rug to determine if it is repairable, and to provide you with an estimate.

Care and Maintenance Tips

  • Vacuum your area carpet regularly.  Household dust that is allowed to accumulate can cause discoloration of the carpet.  Light-colored areas look grayish; darker-colored areas tend to look darker.

  • If something spills on your area carpet, take care of the spill immediately.  Use a white cloth or towel, and blot the spilled substance. Be sure to have a stain extinguisher on hand for emergencies and for use between professional cleanings.  We recommend Chem-Dry’s Professional Strength Spot Remover.  The carbonation in the solution lifts the soil to the surface for easy removal.
  • Try Chem-Dry’s Carpet Deodorizer!  It’s easy to use and requires no vacuuming.  It provides a long-lasting, time-release fragrance and also helps to protect the carpet from resoiling.
  • If you have pets, you know that accidents happen.  When it happens on your area carpet, be sure to have both our Chem-Dry Spot Remover and the Carpet Deodorizer on hand.  Proper use of these two products helps to maintain your carpet and provide you with peace of mind. For more severe or frequent accidents, we recommend a professional cleaning. See our section on Pet Urine Removal Treatment (P.U.R.T).
