Rug Cleaning

Owing to the current advice from the government, we are closed to domestic customers, apart from empty properties for start/end of tenancy work. Commercial customers please continue to contact us by telephone or email.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a safe & calm period of quarantine. We look forward to serving you in the near future.

Rugs lend warmth, texture and colour to your home and often are the result of many hours of skilled hand-crafting. Whether you have a modern, machine-made rug or a room-sized Afghan rug, Green Man provide a comprehensive & insured rug cleaning service from our four local branches in Bath, Bristol, Stroud & Frome.

Rug cleaning is a careful process of: 


  • Pre-inspection & testing
  • Beating (to extract dry soils)
  • Dry extraction (to further remove dry soils)
  • Spot/stain treatments
  • Deep cleaning/sanitising eco pre-spray agitation
  • Final clean (either modern low moisture or traditional wet extraction)
  • Fringe treatments (if needed)
  • Accelerated drying

“Green Man deliver powerful, sanitising solutions using eco-friendly technology”

After your rug has been cleaned, we advise finding a warm area where it can either be hung or draped to allow air to circulate freely around it. This is because most rugs tend to be densely constructed and will benefit from some assistance in drying.

Where drying time might be problematic, we may recommend renting one of our industrial air movers to accelerate the process.

This service is charged at £20 for 24 hours.

It would be unprofessional not to draw our customers’ attention to the existence of “specialist rug cleaners” operating in the South West. These companies tend to operate from an industrial unit and offer the customer the convenience of having their rug collected & returned. Because they sometimes have a large commercial centrifuge, a specialist rug cleaning company will be able to fully dry your rug off-site before its return.

Our research has shown that (as a rough guide) you can expect to pay around an additional £250 for this service. 

In addition to the considerable cost-saving we offer by conducting a deep-clean in the home, from an environmental point of view, we use a fraction of the water used in a rug-plant where hundreds of gallons of water are used per day to flood and hose down rugs.

We would highly recommend the information found on the infographics site here.



Taking into account the current UK Government advice, Green Man (SW) Ltd. will continue to deliver services to our customers until any restrictions become necessary.

However, as a responsible company that cares about how we operate within our local community, we are taking the following measures to prevent any accidental spread of infection:


1. We will refrain from any shaking of hands etc.

2. We will seek to wash our hands before & after every job we conduct, and avoid touching taps, door handles etc. wherever possible.

3. To our more vulnerable customers (and any customers that request this), we can arrange to work without any face-to-face contact. Simply book our services, then we will make arrangements to suit you that avoid any unnecessary proximity.

While the COVID-19 threat remains, consider using our "No Contact" service.
