In-Home Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning
Keeping your home looking its best can be difficult, especially with dirty, discolored wall-to-wall carpeting, stair runners and furniture upholstery. While area rugs and carpets can, and should, be cleaned away from the home, attention must still be paid to those furnishings which can’t be removed so easily. Our professional service crews will get your carpeting, stair covers, sofas and chairs back to their like-new luster using pet- and kid-friendly green cleaners. Call or write us today!
RUG REPAIR & RESTORATION
Dirt and grime aren’t the only troubles that can befall your rugs. Between foot traffic, vacuuming, overzealous pets and unfortunate accidents, your rugs may begin to show signs of damage. Loose threads, frayed fringes, worn piles – all of these and more can make your rugs look ratty and aged.
At Allegretti, our expert repair technicians can fix whatever is wrong with your rugs, from touching up loose bindings, to rebuilding and reweaving entire sections. Contact us today to learn more about what we can do to bring your rug back to its health and splendor.
All rugs suffer wear-and-tear over time. From uneven fringes to fraying side bindings, the expert Allegretti repair technicians can fix all those little problems that crop up over time. After inspecting your rugs, our staff will contact you to inform you of any areas in need of work.
Some problems are bigger than others. At Allegretti we pride ourselves in our ability to repair even the most destructive damage that can befall a rug. From extensive moth damage to major wear and pet damage, our technicians can re-weave entire sections of your rug to restore its natural beauty.

Rug pads are important for extending the life of your rug, prevent the rug from shifting, soften the sound of footsteps and make the rug more comfortable to walk on. We carry several varieties of padding to suit different types of rugs and environments. Ask our friendly staff which pad is right for your rug.
Pet Stain Treatment
Sometimes your pets just can’t hold it. When someone has an accident on one of your rugs, it is important to treat the rug to remove the odors and salvage the color. Ask about our deodorization treatment, or enzyme bath for larger accidents.
Spills and accidents are a part of life. At Allegretti we take great pride in our ability to remove even some of the toughest stains from your rugs, but there is no better way to fight a stain than to prevent it altogether. We provide several different treatments to help protect your rug from staining – ask us which may be right for you!
