A survey by the IICRC found that 64% of U.S. homeowners have area rugs in their homes, but only 40 percent clean them on a regular basis. Like carpet cleaning, area rugs require proper maintenance to retain their appearance and durability.
Area rugs tend to be made of more delicate fibers, questionable dyes and woven constructions that can easily be damaged by do-it-yourself procedures or even professionals without adequate training and experience. IICRD Certified technicians are trained to recognize different fibers, constructions and types of carpet and area rugs, along with their potential problems. They have the equipment, training and experience to restore the beauty of carpet and rugs — improving the look of your home or business and protecting the indoor environment, as well as your investment.
Cleaning in place (in your home)
If our technician approves an area rug for in-place cleaning (in-home “steam” cleaning), we follow the same procedure and use the same equipment that has proven safe for Orlando carpet cleaning ( We use the same truck mounted equipment but a slightly different process is performed (up to 10 steps) ).
Area rug cleaning is based on the size (square footage) of the rug. Since area rugs are normally laid over hardwood floors, we’ll take extra precaution to protect the floor underneath while using a low-moisture cleaning technique on the rug itself. Rugs laying on wood floor will either be moved to another surface (i.e. carpet, tile, concrete, or vct) or plastic sheeting can be placed (for an additional fee) under the rug to protect the wood floors.
Cleaning off-premises (in our rug cleaning plant)
For valuable oriental rugs, delicate fabrics, and area rugs with significant staining and odor; we recommend a more thorough cleaning at our Orlando rug cleaning plant. IF YOU’VE SUFFERED WATER DAMAGE TO YOUR RUGS, WE RECOMMEND OUR WATER RESTORATION SERVICES. We can pick-up your rug, safely and more effectively clean it, then return it to your home. In plant cleaning is significantly more expensive than in-place cleaning due to the increased cleaning time and specialized equipment that is used, however you will be very pleased with the result.
We use an 8-step process
We inspect your rug to determine the optimum cleaning process
- Dry soil removal.
A proprietary machine (Rug Badger®) is used to gently shake the carpet over a grating system before vacuuming
Using a special pre-treatment, we’ll address spots, stains, and fringe before regular cleaning
Our shampooing step is designed to carefully lift dirt from sensitive fibers
- Wash & Rinse.
Both sides of your carpet are cleaned in solution in a wash pit
Your carpet dried in a controlled environment (we may also spin dry your carpet in our centrifuge)
Special grooming tools will be used to comb and finish your carpet
Before we deliver the carpet, we will make sure that cleaning has met our high standards

Our family has hired Dan three times now on very urgent notice. Each time Dan’s company has gone above and beyond to help! They have been more than fair on pricing. The work that they have done has been absolutely excellent! Our carpets and floors are in great shape because of them!! Everyone with whom we have worked at this company has been great. They are organized, honest, and do an excellent job. I am giving the highest recommendation I can give!

Great service and very fast! They were able to adjust their pricing to my budget! I definitely recommend and will call them again!

Should have taken “before” pictures to show the difference before the cleaning and “after” – carpet looked like it did years ago and the tile and grout looked like it was just installed. Great job! Will absolutely use again!

Highly recommend. The customer service was A+ but the work they did was even better. My sofa and carpet looked like they were brand new when they were done which was no easy feet after my two big dogs took a mud bath outside and came in to play on the sofa.

Called Dan based upon references and quickly set up a date to have carpets and furniture cleaned as we had never had the carpets cleaned since installing them in the house five years ago. Just my wife and I, no kids or pets – just a sometimes messy five year old grandchild. Tech Jimmy came out and immediately assessed our needs and recommended the LOWEST price cleaning. No up selling, no pressure AT ALL. He then explained the process in detail and started work. It took him approximately 4.5 hours to finish the house and furniture – and it looked GREAT! My wife and I were completely satisfied and will never go to anyone else for carpet and furniture cleaning.

I am SO impressed with this company! I had them clean grout and carpet and they did a great job at both. My tile looks brand new, and I smile every time I walk into the kitchen. In all honesty, I was a die-hard Stanley Steamer girl, because it was so easy to book online and be done. I will NEVER use them again after I have seen what Dan Dan did! What a difference!! The employees were wonderful to deal with and scheduling was super easy. I called to schedule an appointment and they fit me in right away. If you have heard of the “2 second rule” if you drop a piece of food on the floor, it really no longer applies….because the floor is so clean, you could literally eat off of it!!!!!!

Everyone I spoke to was friendly and informative. They explained my options and left the decision up to me. No high pressure salesman stuff. I have used them for my office and now my home. I highly recommend them. My carpets looked brand new after cleaning. Very impressive.

Amazing experience! Everyone in this company is so nice. When we needed some flexibility on their part, they were accommodating, which was such a relief (thank you!) They did a fantastic job with our office space. It looks and smells so fresh in here. Ahhhh Will absolutely use again in the future.

Best carpet cleaning ever! Called them on recommendation from a friend/customer of mine who has impeccable taste and was thrilled with the result. Booked an appointment for exactly when I wanted it, came out and measured and quoted and cleaned all in the same day. The results were amazing. Highly recommend them.

Would Highly recommend Dan Dan to anyone. Gary showed up, prepped and got to work. In total, he spent over 6 hours getting my requested work done. I had a lot of stuff on my floors. Stuff I myself could not move due to suffering a Heart Attack a few weeks prior. I had 2 bathrooms done. Kitchen, bedroom and foyer and a very large Dining Room all with tile floors. I also had 2 larger area rugs done. What a difference. Gary did an amazing job. Even though the grout on the floor in the kitchen did not come as clean as I had hoped for. Gary tried, but we believe a darker grout (black) was originally used and a lighter placed on top. (or vice-versa), or possibly some type of coloring was applied over the original color. The next job will be my Florida Room tile floor. (My daughter just needs to buy her house and get her “Storage” stuff out of there.) I will not hesitate to call Dan Dan again to do that room!
