Rug Cleaning

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, Cheltenham, Frome & Gloucester.

 Our professional rug cleaning process consists 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 (mechanical or by hand)
  • 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.

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


For 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.

Sometimes, if the weather is good & the rug type suitable, we are lucky enough to be able to dry rugs the traditional way!

A fantastic service from start to finish - fast, effective, friendly and good value. Jon came out to quote promptly and quickly fitted us in to clean carpets and our two sofas. The team were so careful with moving furniture and considerate of our home and managed to get rid of every stain - from baby vomit to ingrained building work debris. Can't recommend enough!
