Professional Rug Cleaning & Rug Repair

Welcome to Capital Rug Cleaning. We’re a full-service rug care company, family owned & operated backed by over 25 years of experience with two convenient locations in Severna Park, MD and Alexandria, VA. Trusted, dependable, & highly recommended.

Every rug is hand-washed individually with attention to detail & care. Our traditional rug washing process removes stains, dirt, grit, sand, and allergens from the rug safely and gently. No color damage, pile distortion, shrinkage, or odor!

This method is more time consuming but yields the best results. Two rugs are never washed simultaneously and share the same unclean water. This eliminates cross-contamination problems.

We do not use or recommend rotary machines, wash-tubs, or in-home rug cleaning by commercial wall-to-wall carpet cleaners.

Oriental rug cleaning cost is based on 3 factors:

  3. Is the rug going to be dropped-off (saving 20%) or scheduled to be picked up from your home/office (free for rugs over 100 sq.ft.)
