Our cleaning agents eliminate the harsh chemical agents found in commercial cleaning soaps which most major carpet cleaning companies use. We remove all allergens from your carpets and upholstery, employing the use of our natural, “Green” cleaning agents. We also ensure to eliminate a majority of the airborne bacteria from your carpets and flooring, to help improve the air quality in the home, and to ensure your floors and upholstery look brand new once we are finished with our services.

Oriental Rug Cleaning NYC – Cleaning and Restoration of fine rugs

Oriental Rugs come in all different shapes and sizes. The most common material found in oriental rugs is wool and often times silk as well.

Both are very resilient fabrics and with the proper maintenance your rugs should last you several lifetimes depending on the quality.

To determine the quality of an oriental handwoven area rug, several things are taken into consideration. The two most important and decisive factors are knot count and age. The tighter the weave, the higher the knot count, which means the rug weaver spent a lot of time and attention weaving this rug, creating a priceless work of art.

In many cases a standard 8×10 wool rug can have taken 7-9 months to weave by hand.

We take great pride in cleaning each and every area rug we come across. Our family has been in the rug business for three generations. By combining centuries old cleaning techniques and modern technology we are extremely confident that we offer the safest and most thorough oriental rug cleaning NYC experience.

Every rug that comes into our shop gets individually looked at and we cater the cleaning to meet the specific needs of that particular rug. We never wash two rugs at the same time. This is a common practice which can result in cross contamination from on rug to another, color transfer, and a sub par cleaning.

Oriental rugs can often times be very expensive and delicate. This is why you should never trust your fine rugs to anyone who is not a certified rug cleaning specialist.

An uneducated rug cleaner can many times permanently damage a rug with an improper cleaning method. Several things can go wrong during the cleaning process, for example, color bleeding, pile damage, buckling and shrinking.

We often times get requests to fix and repair damage done to area rugs from an improper wash. To help avoid a rug cleaning nightmare, we recommend asking these 5 questions before sending out your rugs for cleaning.

  1. How long have you been cleaning oriental rugs?
  2. What is your cleaning process?
  3. Are you fully certified and insured?
  4. Do you perform the work yourself or sub the rugs out?
  5. What type of guarantees do you offer?

These 5 questions should help you vet the company you are thinking about hiring for your rugs and ensure that you can feel comfortable and confident that your rugs are in the right hands.

At PureGreen we never sub out our jobs. All work is fully inspected and watched over by a certified rug cleaning specialist on our premises. We also offer our industry best iron clan cleaning guarantee. If you are not 100% satisfied with our cleaning, we will re-clean your rug again free of charge. If after that you are still not happy for any reason we will refund your payment no questions asked.

As always we offer free inspections on all of our work. Please feel free to contact one of our rug cleaning NYC specialists today to schedule!

Rug Cleaning NYC – Persian Rug Stain Removal & Repair / Restoration

At PureGreen we specialize in cleaning and restoration of fine area rugs from all over the world. We are confident that our rug cleaning process is the most thorough you can get in NYC!

In order to preserve the life of a quality handwoven area rug, they need to be properly maintained. Depending on the amount of traffic and usage that the rugs are receiving they should typically be professionally cleaned every 8-16 months with regular routine vacuuming in between.

Wool rugs in particular hide a lot of dust and soil before they even begin to show signs of dirt. Even with regular vacuuming you cannot remove deeply embedded soil from the rugs without a deep professional cleaning. Our customers are almost always shocked to see what we are able to remove from a rug simply with our dusting process. A typical 8×10 wool area rug can hide about 10 pounds of dust before it even begins to look dirty!

Our cleaning process begins in your home with a proper inspection. Our NYC rug cleaning technicians will thoroughly inspect your rug for any pre-existing stains or damage and provide you with an inspection report detailing what to expect with a cleaning.

Once that had been done we will move any furniture and roll up the rug to transport it back to our state of the art cleaning facility in NYC. As a preliminary process all rugs first go through our thorough dusting/dry soil removal process. This is a very crucial step in the cleaning process that many rug washers tend to skip. Without a proper dusting process the rugs are not being cleaned to their full potential. By skipping the dusting process and going straight to the wash, all the dirty soil and dust gets mixed up with the water and in turn becomes a muddy mess that most often does not get fully extracted from the rug.

The results are a sub-par cleaning…and we do not cut corners. After the dusting process we will then pre-treat any pre-existing spots that may need special attention, for example urine stains, red wine or coffee stains. Once that has been done it is time for our soaking process. We fully submerge the rug in our custom fit wash pools so that both front and back get a thorough cleaning. This process helps remove all deeply embedded soil from the rug and if pet odor is an issue, they will be long gone after the soaking.

Once the rugs have been soaked and hand washed we extract any remaining water and either hang them up to dry or dry flat depending on the area rug. Our temperature controlled dry rooms ensure for a fast dry time. As an optional treatment we can also apply a wool safe fabric protector onto the rugs to keep them clean in between cleanings.

We recently picked up and cleaned a severely soiled area rug from one of our customers. This was a valuable rug and required a deep restoration cleaning. We did have to clean the rug twice but the end result was something both we and our customer were proud of! Take a look at the before and after photos below!

If you are in the Manhattan area and are looking for rug cleaning services we would be happy to assist you! Give us a call today to meet with one of our rug cleaning NYC technicians!

Deep Restoration Rug Cleaning Process in NYC

August 26, 2014
by Sonny Cohen


We receive calls all the time with the same issue. HELP! Moth are eating my rug!!

Moth damage to an area rug can be devastating. In many cases the damage can be too far gone for repairs, however early detection can save your rug. Moth are attracted to wool rugs because of the high protein content the wool provides for their larvae. The moth will lay there eggs in the rug and when the larvae hatch….free lunch!

They thrive in dark corners and will often times do there damage without you even knowing about it. This is why regular vacuuming and deep cleaning once a year is recommended.  Having your rug professional cleaned will keep it free from pests and make sure there are no unwanted visitors using your rug without your permission. Prevention is the best course of action against moth, however, in the unfortunate event that you have already suffered moth damage on your precious rug we are here to help.

Upon inspection our NYC rug cleaning technicians will let you know what to expect with your rug. They will let you know what options you have and whether or not it is salvageable. After discussing your options the technician can safely roll the rug up and seal it for proper transportation to our facility where it will be fully submerged in a lime wash in order to eliminate any living or unhatched larvae.

After the wash we moth proof the rug to ensure that moth will not be attracted to this rug anymore. We then thoroughly inspect the rug for damages. Often times the full extent of the damage will not be revealed until after the wash. What happens is the fibers that the larvae have been feasting on have been severely weakened and any loose fibers will fall apart during the wash.

At this point one of our technicians will call you and provide photos and videos of the rug in its present conditions after wash and offer repair options for your consideration. Repairs can include, new binding, fringe repairs, reweaving of holes, patching, color restoration, or dyeing. All repair work gets done by hand by skilled weavers which use original materials matching the design and aesthetics of the rug exactly how it was when it was first woven.

Our Rug Cleaning NYC technicians will keep you informed every step of the way from pickup time to delivery ensuring a smooth and pain free experience.

If your rug is going to be put away for storage we will make sure the wrap in acid free breathable paper and moth proof the rug so that it can be safely put away. It is extremely crucial to clean and moth proof ANY rug prior to placing it in storage because if not, there is a high probability that you will be in for a big surprise when you eventually open up the rug.

Take a look below at some recent photos of rugs we received that had suffered moth damage. These rugs will all need patching and reweaving which will restore them to their original beauty and condition. One of the rugs was being eaten in the customers home underneath their couch. They had no idea it was going on until they started seeing several moth flying around the apartment.

The others were placed in storage without being properly cleaned and protected first.

Upholstery Cleaning NYC – Professional Sofa Cleaning

Upholstery Cleaning NYC

People often neglect there upholstery and skip on cleaning them, however the truth of the matter is that your sofas and couches need cleaning as much as your carpets and rugs.

We spend a lot of time lounging and sitting down in our comfy sectionals. Our bodies are constantly shedding dead skin cells, hair, and body oil. All of these things become embedded in the fabric of your upholstery and over time can create a dingy look on the fabric and wear it down faster. Not to mention odors.

You’d be surprised what we can extract out of your sofa. Lots of times our customers are shocked to see the dirty water at the end of the job because the sofa did not “look” very dirty.

When we clean, we perform a deep cleaning which removes all of the surface soil and more importantly flushes out the deeply embedded soil from deep within the fabric.

Our upholstery cleaning NYC technicians are fully trained and equipped to clean even the most delicate of fabrics. Certain fabrics like silk and cotton can be tough to clean for an inexperienced upholstery cleaning technician however we handle these on a daily basis.

Take a look at the example below. Here we have a customer who tried to clean their upholstered plush chair.

The customer stained the chair and also caused severe pile damage by rubbing aggressively against the nap with a towel.

In order to fix this we first had to provide a softening treatment which softened of the fibers and made it possible for us to brush them back into position. After the softening treatment we performed a light hot water extraction to remove the dirt, oils and stains while carefully making sure the pile stays in one direction.

Lastly we dried the chairs using blowers to ensure and quick and complete drying.  The customer was thrilled with the end result.

Feel free to give us a call for all your upholstery cleaning needs. We would love to accommodate you!

Organic Carpet Cleaning NYC – Stain Removal Service in NYC

Every day we receive new calls for new situations that arise. Every single job we go out on is always unique and that is why we treat each job individually to address the specific needs of that particular situation.

Experience and training has taught us how to effectively and safely remove stains and odors without compromising the structural integrity of the fabric we are working with.  Our Carpet Cleaning NYC technicians have been fully immersed in cleaning and handling the most delicate fabrics such as silk, wool, cotton, velvet….the list goes on and on.

Most companies use harsh detergents which they pour into their machines in order to clean the carpet with. The problem with that is, now you have a lot of soapy, sticky residue left inside your carpet. It may look clean after they leave, but that sticky residue attracts dirt and grime very quickly, and in a couple of days your traffic lanes will not look as clean anymore. The other problem with using harsh chemicals while cleaning is that they produce a lot of off gassing. The soapy chemicals left over in your carpet will give off unpleasant odors which are harmful to your respiratory system and can produce headaches.


At PureGreen, we do things differently.

1. We NEVER use toxic chemicals

2. We ALWAYS rinse out with pure neutralized water.

3. We EXTRACT any and all cleaning solutions that we put down into your carpet.

4. We make sure to get your carpet as DRY as possible to avoid any re-soiling or odor issues.

5. We GUARANTEE all of our work. If you are not happy, simply call us and we will re-clean FREE of charge.


Carpets in NYC tend to get dirty quickly and there are an endless number of companies to choose from. We recommend doing your research and finding the company that you feel the most comfortable with. Reputation goes a long way, and we are very proud of ours!

Here is a job we did recently for an apartment building in NYC. The building manager called us in to clean the carpets in the hallways and common areas of the building. Each floor was severely dirty and stained from a long and harsh New York City winter.

To make matters a little more difficult these carpets were not cleaned in over 6 years. Thats 6 years of foot traffic, dust, allergens, bacteria and sludge that has been living inside the carpet fibers.

We performed a deep shampoo cleaning in which we pre-conditioned the carpet first with our all natural presprays. We then agitated (brushed) the conditioner into the carpet fibers. Lastly we extracted and rinsed out the dirt and pre-conditioner until we were confident it could not get any cleaner.

If you are looking for carpet cleaning service in NYC with experience and reputation, we would be happy to serve you!

Silk Rug Cleaning NYC – Cleaning & Restoration on Silk Rugs

At PureGreen are experience in cleaning and restoring fine and delicate rugs is second to none.

We are fully capable and equipped in handling all rugs from oriental rugs, Persian rugs, Turkish, Shag and Silk.

When cleaning expensive and antique area rugs certain measures must be taken to avoid destroying the rug. An improper cleaning can often result in numerous issues that sometimes may be irreversible.

Silk rugs are especially difficult to clean for an uneducated rug cleaner. A hand woven silk rug can be very expensive and when it’s time for a cleaning you’ll want to make sure that rug is in the best hands possible.

We cannot tell you how many times we have seen silk rugs in NYC that have been damaged by a cleaner who claimed to be an expert, not experienced in handling fine and delicate rugs.

Many steam cleaners in New York will attempt to clean your silk rug using the same cleaning methods that they use when they are cleaning wall to wall carpeting. Now, there wall to wall carpet cleaning method might be extremely thorough and professional on carpets, but using that same method on a silk rug will more than likely destroy it.

Using chemicals that carry a high pH level can cause discoloration in the rug, sheen damage and color runs. Often times we receive calls from customers who will use a product like resolve or oxyclean on a silk rug to try and remove a spot, only to find out that they have made it far worse.

Overwetting the rug and improper drying will result in a stiff uncomfortable rug. When silk rugs become wet, the fabric will dry hard and stiff. It must be treated with a softener and the pile must be brushed during the drying process to ensure no stiffness.

Aside from these dangers, many other issues can also occur during the cleaning process like browning, buckling, pile damage, and fringe damage.

A professional silk rug cleaner will never clean your silk rug in your home. The rugs need to be taken out to be cleaned in a controlled environment where they can safely and effectively be cleaned by hand using a low moisture cleaning process that will not cause stiffness, bleeding or any damage to the rug.

At PureGreen we offer expert silk rug cleaning nyc services. If you are in need of a free inspection we would be happy to accommodate you. We also do all repairs including, fringe repairs, Persian binding, re-weaving, and dyeing.

In New York City, your rugs and textiles tend to take more of a beating than anywhere else. This is due largely to the fact that we live in a major city with lots of airborne pollution and lots of foot traffic. Cleaning your rugs once a year will not only preserve the rug but also create a healthier environment for your family to reside in.

Organic Cleaning NYC – Cleaning Upholstery Church Pews in New York

We recently got called in by a large Church in New York that desperately needed the Church pews and carpets professionally deep cleaned.

Everything was in very poor condition due to the fact that they receive a lot of traffic at this location and they have not been cleaned in quite some time. There were multiple tough stains that we had to tackle. Mostly coffee and drink spills and general body oils. After assessing the conditions of the fabric we were working with we recommended our our deep organic shampoo cleaning.

Firstly we pretreated all the spots with our green labeled pre-conditioner. This is a vital step in the cleaning process that many companies do not even take. What this does is loosen up all the deeply embedded soil and emulsifies all the dirt and body oil so that it can be extracted from the fabric. If a company does not pretreat the fabric, often times they are just pushing the dirt and stains deeper into the fabric which means they will pop back up as the upholstery dries.

After pretreated, we scrubbed the organic cleaning solution into the fabric to ensure a deep and thorough cleaning. The next step required a bit of patience. We let the solution dwell in the fabric for 15 minutes before we began extracting. The dwell time is crucial because it allows the organic solution to actually do it’s job. Finally we extracted with high pressure water and a rinsing agent that flushed away all the shampoo and extracted all the soil, dirt, grime and drink spills.

The pastor was extremely pleased with the end result. He mentioned he forgot what the original color was! It was important to him that we used a  100% organic cleaning process as he is sensitive to harsh chemicals. The fabric was left to dry with air movers so that it would be ready for the service that same day. We are happy to have provided this service for a local Church and after seeing what the dirty water looked like at the end of the job they mentioned they want to do this every 6 months.

If you have any questions feel free to call us. We welcome all new customers looking for organic carpet cleaning NYC and no job is too big or small for us too handle. Happy holidays and new year from PureGreen!

5 questions you should ask a Professional Rug Cleaning Company in New York before hiring them!

Let’s face it. Finding professional services to do work around your home can be stressful. With so many unscrupulous companies out there, choosing the best company to do business with can be a fruitful task for the uneducated consumer.

When cleaning area rugs we understand that sometimes the rug that needs cleaning can hold a significant sentimental or monetary value to the customer and that is why we take extra care to ensure that your rugs are treated as if they are our own.

To help make the decision making process for choosing a rug cleaner in we have created this list of 5 questions to ask any company when you are looking to hire them for your home.

Are you bonded and insured?

A reputable company will be fully licensed, bonded and insured for any event of loss. Bringing a stranger into your home can be much less burdensome when you know that you are protected. Accidents happen, this is part of life. You want to know that in the event of any accidents that your personal belongings are fully protected.

Do you sub-contract?

Many companies in this industry are known to sub-contract their work to other rug cleaning facilities. You want to make sure that your rug is being cleaned by the company you called. By subbing the work out, companies must charge higher prices and also the rug will take much longer to get done. You want to make sure that your rug cleaning company is providing your rug with all the care and attention it needs.

How many years have you been in business?

With so many fly by night companies, this is a very important question to ask. A company that has been in business for 5 years or more will have a reputation. Look them up online and read the reviews that people are saying about them. You can also contact the BBB to see if any complaints have ever been made.

What type of cleaning method do you use?

Asking the companies representative how they clean your rugs is a great question because it will give the company an opportunity to build trust with you. You want to know exactly what you are paying for when you send your rugs out for cleaning. A company that cannot give you detailed information on the cleaning process is one we would recommend you stay away from. Also ask what type of products they use. With so many harsh and toxic chemicals out there, you want to make sure you keep your home free from as many chemicals as possible. Most rug cleaning chemicals are highly toxic and carry a number of carcinogens.  You want to choose a company that will provide all of their MSDS sheets for the products they use during the cleaning process. Ask if they use organic products during the cleaning process.

Do you provide free in home inspections?

A reputable company will provide a free inspection on the work with no obligations. A company that provides pricing over the phone can sometimes be an indication of bait and switch. Many companies will lure you in with a low price over the phone just so that they can get their foot in the door and demand a high price once they are in your home. If they do quote you a price over the phone, always ask if there will be any additional charges.

We hope that this list will help you make the right choice when you are looking for a professional organic rug cleaning nyc company to work with. Always remember that as the consumer, the power is in your hands, always!

Organic Carpet Cleaning Services in New York

One of the biggest problems people face with indoor carpet is that it makes the perfect home for mites, mold spores, and dust.  While vacuuming is the first line of defense in cleaning your carpet, eventually your carpet will need to be cleaned with a specialized solution.  Many of these carpet cleaning solutions contain a dry cleaning agent called perchloroethylene.  Other cleaners may contain naphthalene which is a carcinogenic solvent that has been linked to red blood cell damage.  Besides the major cancer-causing risks associated with both of these chemicals, people have often reported dizziness and nausea from the fumes.  Pets are affected the same way that humans are.  For these reasons, neither of these substances should ever be used on your carpet.

Regardless if a toxic cleaner is spritzed, sprayed, or poured, the harmful effects always exist.  For that reason, when choosing to have your carpets cleaned, the safest choice you can make is to go with an organic carpet cleaner.  Organic carpet cleaning uses only non-toxic and biodegradable cleaners that have a pH balance that is gentle on both your carpet and the environment.  When having your carpets cleaned by PureGreen Carpet Cleaning New York, you can rest assured in knowing that they specialize in healthy cleaning of your carpet to ensure the safety of your family and yourself.

Often homeowners set out to attempt to clean their own carpets and when they are finished they often regret it.  Besides not getting professional results, the homeowner makes the error of using one of the many common brands that are sold in local stores, not realizing that the cleaner they purchased contains chemical solvents that are like the ones that are used by dry cleaning companies.  Not only do these commonly used carpet cleaners and spot removers give off an extremely strong odor, they can also aggravate numerous allergies and respiratory conditions.  Below is a list of just a few unsafe ingredients that can be found in non-organic cleaning solutions:

  • Pesticides
  • Formaldehyde
  • Acids
  • Lye (Sodium Hydroxide)

Organic carpet cleaning doesn’t put off the nauseating vapors that regular carpet cleaning can.  Not only can non-organic cleaning solutions pollute your home, they can also pollute the outdoor environment.  Organic carpet cleaners are a significantly healthier option for both you and the environment.  While having your carpet cleaned in a traditional manner leaves you with a lingering vapor, organic carpet cleaning will leave your home smelling fresh and clean.  In addition, when using an organic carpet cleaner the possibility of mold growth is greatly lowered over that of traditional carpet cleaning.

While it is recommended that you contact a professional for your organic carpet cleaning, like PureGreen Carpet Cleaning New York, the most vital thing is to be aware of the harmful and dangerous chemicals that are often in carpet cleaners that are found at your local supermarkets and retail chain stores.  PureGreen Carpet Cleaning New York uses only the best organic plant-based cleaning solutions and non-toxic extraction methods.  For your family’s and personal safety, make it point to choose only organic carpet cleaners.
