Your oriental and area rugs are not just art treasures, but very valuable investments. That’s why we clean them with so much care and attention to detail.

With patented tools and equipment designed specifically for the cleaning of oriental rugs, we provide a thorough and effective, yet gentle, cleaning process that is powerfully soft. Depending on the particular fibers, dyes, soils, and construction of the rug, we’ll draw from a wide range of different cleaning techniques.
WHY CHOOSE CHAMPION CHEM-DRY?
We aren’t like the competition. Our in-plant rug cleaning offers several features and benefits you won’t find from other area rug cleaners in Central Florida. See below:

OUR FIVE-STEP RUG CLEANING PROCESS
Our state of the art, in-plant rug cleaning facility is highly recommended for the cleaning of Oriental and loose woven rugs. They should not be cleaned on location like your wall to wall carpeting. Having your rugs cleaned in our facility allows us to give them several treatments, if needed, with both sides cleaned, controlled drying and the use of various specialty tools that are not available on location.
INITIAL INSPECTION & CHECK-IN
When your rug arrives at our facility, it is carefully inspected for spots and stains, soiling conditions, wear patterns, repair needs and other areas of concern such as pet odors, etc. We then measure your rug and determine a cost for service.
DRY SOIL REMOVAL
The next step in your rug’s spa treatment is a vigorous “massage” to remove dry soils. The dusting process is the most important step in the process of rug cleaning. We use an Automatic Rug Dusting System which allows us to control the speed and the vibration of each individual rug. And, we have the ability to reverse the rug and start the process again for rugs with large amounts of dry soil within the fibers.
Dry soil removal is critically important to restoring the appearance and maintaining the life of your rug. A respected study by vacuum cleaner manufacturer The Eureka Company determined that a 9 x 12 rug can hold up to 87 pounds of dry soil before looking dirty! And those deeply embedded dry soils are abrasive and saw away at rug fibers like sandpaper every time you walk across your rug!
At Champion Chem-Dry, we remove the dry soil from deep in the foundation of your rug with a proprietary Automatic Rug Duster that shakes loose all the dry particulate soil that has accumulated in the rug—even crusty soils that have been embedded for years! There’s simply no comparison to the conventional rug beating done by other “rug cleaning companies”. Pounds of dry soils are safely removed from the back of the rug without any risk of damage to the rug, fibers or fringe!
FINAL DRYING & INSPECTION
When your rug comes out of the centrifuge it is hung on a special rack to complete the drying phase. The new drying chamber is a sealed off area that will allow your rugs to dry even faster. Combined with the added heat and dehumidifiers inside the unit, we can offer some of the fastest, safest drying times in the industry. Once completely dry, your rug will undergo a final detailed inspection prior to being rolled and wrapped for final delivery.
AREA RUG WASHING
The spa treatment continues as your rug is placed into our unique wash tub for a swim. The wash tub uses a special, velocity appropriate star paddle to provide gentle agitation that mimics age old hand washing techniques. As your rug swims in the churning water, soils are removed and the appearance of your rug is renewed without the use of brushes, power spraying, scrubbing or other mechanical agitation that can damage rug fibers.
Special cleaning agents are added to aid in the cleaning process and to insure that colors are restored to their very best appearance and that dye stability or dye transfer is never a problem. This system is so safe that we can clean even priceless Heirloom’s and sensitive foundation antiques with complete confidence!
Once your rug is clean, we utilize a rug wringing centrifuge that is designed to quickly remove water from your rug in order to speed up the drying process. This process is much like the spin cycle on your washing machine! Our special centrifuge allows us to dramatically accelerate the drying process. No longer do you have to wait weeks to have a clean rug back in place in your home!

ADDITIONAL RUG SERVICES
Champion Chem-Dry offers more than just rug cleaning. We provide rug repair, fringe repair, stain removal, pet urine odor removal and more!
RUG & FRINGER REPAIR
The fringe is the first thing to go on a rug. It’s inevitable. Years of foot traffic on individual tassels cause abrasion to the fringed areas. Vacuum cleaners and other devices within the home can cause damage as well. And they all contribute to tearing, fraying, and an eventual wearing down of the tassels or discoloration. Most of the time we want our rugs “fixed” with new fringe because it just looks bad when the original fringe is worn. It’s a noticeable thing to fix, and it is the most common repair that comes through our doors! Now, there is a solution to your problem.
LONG-LASTING FRINGE SOLUTIONS
First the end must be properly secured with an overcast stitch so that the structure of the rug is sound. We then lay your new fringe along the previous area and sew it right into the rug. This process is much easier to accomplish and produces a great looking rug. The only difference is for rugs where the fringe is actually sewn into the rug which is a very expensive process to accomplish. This process is easier and less expensive while still producing a rug you will enjoy for years and years to come.
PET URINE ODOR REMOVAL
For many families, their pets are a vital part of their family unit. Just like other family members, we normally don’t get rid of them when they have “accidents.” And while pets can and do provide a variety of benefits within households, their “accidents” can also create challenges.
Pet urine on carpet, rugs, upholstery or leather can do much more than cause unpleasant odor.
• Urine deposited on area rugs does not stay on the surface. It also penetrates the fibers and contaminates both the backing of the rug and the flooring material below. Often, without your knowledge, pets will urinate continually in the same general location, causing significant contamination and damage.
• As urine dries, the liquid evaporates but the urine crystals become even more concentrated and pungent. Simple cleaning will not remove this odor. In fact, these urine crystals are frequently re-activated by moisture.
• Urine can also cause permanent color damage, either from adding color by dying the rug fibers or removing color by releasing carpet dyes.
Our rug cleaning process is perfect for removal of pet odors caused by urine. We soak the rug in order to breakdown the urine salts that cause the odor. We then immerse the rug to remove all the contaminants. We guarantee the removal of urine odor.
