Rug Cleaning

Aqua-Dry offers the definitive rug cleaning service in Ireland. This unique service is handled through a custom-built dedicated Rug Cleaning facility.

Our Rug Cleaning Service

Often rug cleaning is the most personal of the services we offer as almost every rug has a unique story behind it and rugs usually carry great sentimental value. 

In talking with customers over many years, we recognised the need for a dedicated rug cleaning facility which would be a centre of excellence for cleaning rugs. As a result, over 12 years ago we built our own Rug Cleaning Centre comprising of a state-of-the-art cleaning facility and drying room. The results we now achieve are radically better than those that can be delivered in people’s own homes.

Over the years we have developed this facility into a comprehensive expert rug cleaning service, where the cleaning process is extremely thorough and the drying times have been reduced. We believe the results we achieve are second-to-none in Ireland.

We chose you because of the proximity to our home in North County Dublin and website looks good with testimonials. We liked that there was great communication from the office - friendly staff. In my case, there was a quality issue after the cleaning of some rugs, however, this was all rectified without any quibble or charge and I am completely satisfied now. I would recommend Aqua-dry for premium service.

Tom & Tim were very helpful & obliging both when collecting & returning our rug. Tom managed our expectations extremely well in relation to any old stains that might not be removed during cleaning. I will have no hesitation in recommending your company's services in the future.

Rugs look as good as new! I chose Aqua-Dry again ecause the service offered by Aqua-Dry is second to none. I like the prompt collection and prompt delivery. I can't think of anything to improve the service. Aqua-Dry provides the best solution for anyone with oriental carpets...Plus, Tom collects the carpets from your house and delivers them back looking as good as new. And you may quote me on that!

I am very happy with the rug cleaning. It looks great! We chose Aqua-dry as your company had such great reviews on your website. We wanted to chose a reputable company to ensure our rug was properly cleaned and cared for. I really liked the customer service, and that the rug was collected and dropped back to us. It made it very easy for us. I don’t have anything that ye could improve on.

How It Works

If you give us measurements and a description or picture of the rug, our office staff can usually provide an estimate over the phone or via email.
There are 2 options then: 

The rug(s) can be dropped into the rug cleaning centre by appointment. 
We also provide a pick-up and delivery service (within the Dublin area), so we could arrange for one of our technicians to visit you and do an on-site quotation. 

This would enable him to give you an idea of the expected results. If you are happy to go ahead, the rug(s) can be taken away there and then (except in the case of very large rugs, which may have to be cleaned on site).


Our Rug Cleaning Service Options

Deep Clean

Our Deep Clean service consists of deep-cleaning your rug, typically using the Hot Water Extraction method (provided it can be safely wet cleaned*). Before we clean, we inspect the rug carefully in order to clearly point out the expected result to our customer. We remove any grit that may damage your rug with extensive vacuuming of front and back of the rug. Stains are treated by our technician and then the rug is cleaned deep down to remove soiling. 

*In some cases, wet cleaning is not possible and dry cleaning options would be recommended.

Clean and Protect treatment

Our Clean and Protect treatment offers the added benefit of a protective treatment to your rugs. This will help prevent future spillages from becoming stains as this surface treatment forms a barrier between the fibres of the rugs and any spillage or soiling. This also means that the next time you have your rugs cleaned, the soiling will remove more easily. Our protector helps keep your rugs looking better for longer. 
You can view demonstrations of the impressive effect of this kind of treatment on the video below:

Sanitisation Treatment

This treatment kills bacteria and viruses that may be residing in your rug. This certified virucidal cleaner sanitises all water washable surfaces. It is bleach free, non-hazardous and non-toxic and leaves a pleasant floral fragrance. This awesome new treatment kills: Swine Flu, HIV, Hepatitis C, MRSA, Clostridium Difficile (C. Diff), Common food poisoning bacteria, mould, mildew, fungi, yeast.

This is especially useful in homes with pets, babies and small children. Also it may be helpful where family members suffer from conditions such as asthma or allergies.

Call us today on 01-8400 799 or email with your requirements and one of our team will get right back to you.

“We actually don’t know much about the origin of rugs”

Many people are surprised to hear us say that we don’t know that much about the value of rugs, i.e. origin, types of weave, etc. Our expertise is in the area of cleaning rugs, and that’s what we do know A LOT about.

Peter Linden is Ireland’s leading specialist in fine antique rugs, kilims and tapestries. If you want to know about the origin of fine oriental rugs, their history etc. Peter is the best qualified person that we know of.

We do understand that rugs have stories and memories attached to them. The interesting thing, from our point of view, is the value people place on their rugs. It is usually not just a monetary value. I have seen people’s eyes glisten over as they spoke of how they acquired their beloved rug. Very often it was on honeymoon or a once in a lifetime foreign holiday. Rugs are different to carpets in that they sometimes take years to find. After all the searching, you finally find the perfect piece for whatever room or space it is. Therefore, they often hold a special place in people’s hearts and people are understandably wary of giving them to just anyone to clean.

Why We Love Rug Cleaning

Rug cleaning to us in those circumstances is more than just a job. It is taking someone’s precious memories and restoring them to close to their former glory. This does put a certain amount of pressure on us to make sure the cleaning process is totally safe and correct.

Benefits Of Rug Cleaning

One of the main reasons we take rugs to our rug cleaning centre in Donabate, is in order to be in complete control of all the processes of cleaning. We have, for example, a drying room which helps get the rugs dry in the shortest time possible. This helps to avoid colour run and also shrinkage.

Our cleaning Centre allows us to clean rug fringes which could not be done in the home. Bad odours may not remove with just one treatment. Having your rug at our place allows us to re-treat the rug as necessary. In actual fact, we clean almost all the rugs at least twice.

Vacuuming both sides of the rug is another benefit of having the rugs at our cleaning centre. As you can see from the video below, rugs can hold a considerable amount of dust and soiling. This is definitely not something you want done in your home!
In short the benefits of getting the rug taken away to the Rug Cleaning Dublin Centre are:
  • Complete control over the process which means rug cleaning SAFETY
  • Purpose-built drying room means shortest drying times, reduces risk of shrinkage
  • Time and space to treat and re-treat rugs as necessary
  • Vacuuming both sides of the rug releases a LOT of soil. You don’t want that in your home.
