But the ideas of extracting, steam-cleaning and pit washing have been surpassed too! With our expertise and equipment, we are Marylands best Oriental rug cleaners! Let us explain how we deliver the most gentle, sanitary and thorough rug washing possible.

Our Awards »


In 2005, we started a dry-cleaning company catering to families whose homes had been through some of the worst imaginable disasters fire, flood, mold, and sewage backups.

Fine Rug Cleaning Throughout Greater Washington DC,
Annapolis & Baltimore

Cunningham Rug Cleaning serves Maryland, the Greater Washington DC area including Annapolis & Baltimore with pick-up & delivery for cleaning of Oriental rugs, antique and heirloom rugs. We use specialized hand washing and compressed air to clean Oriental, Heirloom and Designer area rugs. Customers choose us not only for our effective cleaning results but also because of our focus on cleaning methods that are safe for the rug and safe for the owners. Like you, we own beautiful hand crafted rugs we cherish and would like to pass down through our own family for as many generations as possible, which means treating them as gently as possible.

Our rug cleaning process centers on using the Turkish bath, a gentle paddle wheel and 1200 gallons of circulating water. Rugs are full submerged and the hydraulic action of the water is used to push cleaning agents and water through the rug without any abrasive scrubbing. This gentle rug cleaning method completely cleans the surface, the pile, foundation and even the backing.

An additional key difference in our service is that we are one of the very few rug cleaning services in the Baltimore area to use a centrifuge to dry your rug. Spinning the rug at roughly 1,000 rpm the rug is spun and rinsed with clean water again and again while the contaminants are pushed out. 98% of the water is removed without a hint of dampness, and your fringe is still original color and softness; with no color bleed or browning.

Contact us today for rug washing services throughout the Baltimore, D.C. and Annapolis region. We look forward to providing you with the safe, thorough and deep cleaning results that will not be found anywhere else.
