A local, specialist rug cleaning service

At Diamond, we understood from an early stage that a local, specialist rug cleaning service — one which is reasonably priced — is what clients in London and Essex are truly looking for.

This translates to our business having teams living and working near the clients’ addresses every day so that the travel time between jobs is down to a minimum, while also cutting down on fuel costs and CO2 emissions, too.

Moreover, having the same technicians work in the same field (rug cleaning, in this instance) for several years gives them and our company the edge over new, unexperienced cleaners who may do a halfway job dealing with your rugs.

As a result, because we have teams of specialist cleaners who live near your postcode in London or Essex and because such teams have spent years focusing and working exclusively in the rug cleaning business, we are able to provide you with a service which is:

  1. at a reasonably fair price;
  2. of exceptional quality of work, and
  3. extends the lifespan of your rugs (giving you greater value for your money).

4 Useful tips to consider before booking our rug cleaners

To qualify for this trade, our rug cleaning technician must have at least three years experience. They must also be based in the London and Essex areas where we operate.

This means that you will get a truly professional to work and clean your rugs, and this will be reasonably priced.

See below for handy tips to consider before deciding to book a rug cleaning service.

If the rug that needs cleaning belongs to someone else (i.e., your landlord, your friend or the building management company), you will need a true professional to take care of it.
Yes, it is worth investing in rugs especially if they are hand made, home made / dyed, antique and/or Oriental.

Unlike carpets (which are fitted to the floor), rugs are portable (you can have them taken to your new home). They have a long lifespan, too: invest in a proper rug and it will last a lifetime if cleaned regularly by a professional.
To help you decide whether or not it is worth having your rug(s) cleaned by our professionals, decide:

  • if the rug has sentimental value, financial value or both,

  • if the rug is not expensive: recycle it and buy a new one - or book us to clean more than just one rug -- you will get the best value the more items you book;

  • if the rug is expensive: call us and buy our fabric protection service as well;

  • if it is a family heirloom: book us regularly to preserve the rug's condition and to extend its lifespan.

If we do not feel confident about the best way to clean your rug(s), we will turn down the job without charging you anything for it.

Advice on removing stains, fast drying rugs & fabric protectors

Fresh, liquid stains on rugs: put table salt as soon as possible so that most of the the stain transfers from the rug into the salt.
High-density stains: carefully remove as much as possible with a blunt or plastic knife and call us.
Furniture dye stains are often impossible to remove: ask us how to prevent or tackle such stains.
Do not use all-purpose stain removers on your rugs: they may permanently damage its fibres.
If you don't know what to do about stains on your rugs, hire us and we will take care of it: do not risk it only to save a couple of pounds.
Rugs are only cleaned at our customers' address: we do not collect, clean, store and deliver.
The size of any rug carries little weight when determining the cleaning price: we charge based on its fabric type and condition.
If the rug is expensive (hand made, antique, Oriental, home dyed etc.) have it insured, especially if it carries sentimental value.
Most rugs (natural fibres ones, in particular) are best to be left to dry naturally to prevent moulding or foul water odours.
Fast drying (done with turbo dryers or air movers) -- if done by an amateur -- will risk damaging the fibres of your rugs.
We use turbo dryers (air movers) on rugs if and when it's needed.

Protect expensive rugs with a fabric protector: it will give you exceptional longterm value

Always recycle unneeded rugs: do your bit for the environment, just like we do

6 Reasons to choose our rug cleaning service

This is where we give you time-tested reasons to choose our rug cleaning service: we have six of them plus four simple, useful tips.

We run 3 simple checks on your rug to guarantee work quality

More than 60-70% of the rugs we’ve cleaned never had a label on them, and we are not in the guesswork business. That’s why all our technicians can properly identify the fibre of any given rug, thus being able to choose the best chemicals, cleaning methods and equipment to use on every service they provide.

Label & Fibre Type Check

Rugs come in a wide variety of fabric type, colours
and sizes, each with their own cleaning instructions. The rule of the
thumb is that in order to properly clean them, the first step is to carefully
follow the instructions printed on the label by the manufacturer.

If the label is missing or if the rug was
hand made, it is the knowledge and experience of our technician that will make all the difference in giving you a truly professional cleaning service.

Home or Machine Made

Our rug cleaning experts are familiar with all the types of rugs out there, split into two categories: homemade or department store (machine made).

Department store rugs are first subject to a colour bleeding /

fastness test which will determine the right pH, chemicals, equipment and methods to be used on the rug(s).

Homemade rugs (including antique, sentimental value and unique rugs)

will be treated in a similar manner albeit by a senior level technician with at least five years of experience: this ensures zero damage to the fibres of the rug during the cleaning process.

The right product for the right rug

Once we've identified the types of fibres woven into the rug, we will continue to the next step which involves measuring pH and deciding which chemicals and equipment are to be used in the deep cleaning process.

Our extensive range of over 40 cleaning products made exclusively for the rug cleaning industry will guarantee the best possible outcome in terms of the looks and cleanliness of your items.
