Rug Cleaning


The Importance of Rug Cleaning

Prolong the lifespan of the rug

One significant advantage of hiring a professional rug and carpet cleaning service is that it helps to extend the life of your furnishings. Dirt, dust, allergens, and other debris accumulate in the carpet over time. They get embedded within the carpet fibers, causing them to split and deteriorate over time.

Removing this buildup of dirt and debris will help the carpet last longer. In addition, a dirty rug or carpet is more likely to attract dust and other debris than a clean one. Vacuuming daily would help reduce the buildup of debris in area rugs and carpets between cleanings.

Keep the indoor environment clean

Carpet and rugs are beautiful decorative floorings. They also act as giant filters, trapping dust, dirt particles, insects, and pests.

Just like other filters, if you do not clean the rug regularly, it gets dirty and becomes a breeding ground for microorganisms. Common microorganisms that thrive in rugs are dust mites, mold, and bacteria.

Prevent mold growth in the rug

Dirty rugs are especially vulnerable to mold growth in areas with high humidity levels. Especially in tropical countries like Singapore, our indoor spaces can get quite humid, which increases mold growth in soft furnishings like rugs. Mold growth in the rug is unsightly, and the spores can be a health hazard in the long run.

Professional rug and carpet cleaners deep clean carpet fibers, removing dirt particles and mold spores. Through regular deep cleaning, you can prevent mold growth in the rug which can be harmful to health if left unchecked for an extended period.

How Often Should You Clean Your Rug?

The frequency of recommended cleaning for rugs depends on how often the rugs are used. If your rug gets a lot of foot traffic, rug fibers would get dirty and flatten easily.

Children or pets tend to create more stains either when they spill or pee on it. You should clean your rug at least three times a year if there are regular staining or urine accidents on it.

Stains can be removed more easily when they are cleaned quickly. Delayed cleaning tends to make the stains more difficult to remove as the spilled substance could have integrated into the rug fibers.

Rugs harbor a high amount of dust and dust mites. These common allergens can cause allergic reactions such as asthma, rhinitis, and other similar conditions. Therefore, rugs should be vacuumed daily and taken to a professional cleaner at least once a year.

How Does De Hygienique Clean Your Rug?

Treatment Process


During the rug cleaning process, rotating brushes in the carpet cleaning machine loosen dirt, clean the carpet pile, and lift the flattened carpet.


The rug is cleaned by applying pinewood cleaning compounds and brushing them into the carpet pile to absorb stains and dirt.

Collection of Compound

During this step, the soiled compound on the carpet is brushed out into an attached tray. An additional round of vacuuming will be repeated to ensure thorough compound removal.


We do not just clean, we also sanitize your rug. A specially formulated antibacterial solution would be applied on a cleaned carpet to prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses, as well as delay the reoccurrence of dust mites and allergies.
