Providing Sacramento With Clean Carpet Since 1975

Carpet Cleaning

It is important to get your carpets and area rugs cleaned regularly, especially in high-traffic areas, not only to remove dirt but revive your carpet’s color and texture.

All of our cleaning products are green, non-toxic, and absolutely safe to use around children and pets. We do move furniture but ask you to remove small items and breakables, etc. before we arrive.

First, our technicians pre-treat your carpet with a mild, non-toxic spray cleaner to loosen dirt and grime. Then we deep clean your carpets using hot water and high-powered suction extraction.

Carpet manufacturers recommend hot water extraction cleaning within 18 month of purchase to keep warranty in place.

Our equipment is truck-mounted and state-of-the-art so there is no heavy equipment in your home or office.

Drying times can vary, but with sufficient heat and ventilation your carpets should be dry within a few hours. We also leave you some protective booties for you to wear while your carpets are drying.

Tile & Grout & Cleaning

Tile, and especially grout, can get dark and dirty over time. We can make your tile and grout look and feel like new with a thorough and professional cleaning.

First, our technicians  spray a mild, but powerful, pre-cleaner that penetrates grease and grime; we then use a self-contained, steam-cleaning and -suctioning tool removing the dirt revealing clean and sanitized tile and grout.

We only use state-of-the-art equipment so there is no overspray and all surrounding areas will remain clean and contaminant-free.

We also offer grout sealing by request.

Upholstery Cleaning

Sofas and upholstered chairs like recliners tend to show more wear on arm rests, head rests and seat cushions. A professional deep cleaning not only removes dirt, grime, pet dander, allergens, and dust mites, but will revive bring out it’s original color and texture.

We are able to clean a variety of upholstery fabrics including microfiber, nylon, and cotton, but we do not clean or treat leather.

Our technicians pre-vacuum and treat your upholstery with a green, non-toxic spray cleaner to loosed old dirt and grime. Then we deep clean your upholstery using hot water and high-powered suction extraction. 

Area Rugs

Area rugs, like wall-to-wall carpeting, should also be cleaned professionally on a regular base. We use the same cleaning techniques as for regular carpet cleaning.

In many cases area rugs can be cleaned in the house and do not have to be removed for cleaning. We can also provide a plastic tarp to protect wood flooring underneath your area rugs.

Residential, Commercial & Other Services

The Rug Bug, Inc. is setup to do residential, commercial and property management services.

We also offer a variety of additional services like pet odor and dog dander treatment, minor carpet repairs and stretching, and water extractions (excluding damage repairs and insurance claims).  

Please call (916) 485-1661 for more information on these services.

  •   First time customer and I am very happy. Price quoted was the price charged. No gimmicks just great service. My carpets were in bad shape with mysterious stains and also a few pet stains in there. All came out. The guys were in and out in 1 hour. They actually called to see if they could come early so it was really nice.  Great work guys thanks again. Ill be calling for my area rugs when the time is right.

      Provided a very reasonable price for a very large house. After over a month with kids running on the carpet is still looks like it was just originally cleaned. Very pleased with the overall service. Staff was pleasant and prompt and follow through with every expectation.

      The Rug Bug came highly recommended to us and after Jeff finished, we know why!  Our 13 year old carpet honestly looks like new!  And it's not high end carpet.  He worked magic on it and we couldn't be more pleased! If we could give more stars we would because the price was so reasonable and he was in and out of here in record time AND he arrived on time!  We like doing business with family owned and operated companies and that's the Rug Bug.  If you need your carpets cleaned, no need to try the others. We live in Elk Grove and they service this area too.

  •   I was very pleased that I went with The Rug Bug. I got an appointment for the weekend and the crew was extremely fast and efficient. It only took them 45 minutes to pack-in and pack-out for a 2 bedroom, hallway and living room carpet cleaning. After they were done- my carpets were good as new! The price was very fair as well. Thank you!!

      Reliable, efficient, thorough, friendly and well priced--all points lead to five star service. Been using this family owned small business for several years now and they are the best.  I made the mistake of using a big name commercial outfit a few years ago and was disappointed with everything.  Stay with The Rug Bug, they are the best!

      I have used this company about 3 times over a few years. Last time I included my furniture with the carpet cleaning. They did a beautiful job. Very professional!

    So a few months ago I needed my carpet and my furniture cleaned again and I lost their number. So I found someone else and it was a disaster they soaked my furniture and missed a few spots it it was awful.

    I'm so glad that I found your number again and you  are  by far one of the very very best!

  •   Fantastic local small business! We were referred to The Rug Bug from our property manager as an economical alternative to the big chain companies. Great price, even for a three story condo with multiple sets of carpeted stairs. Also, I love that they steam clean without using chemicals that could leave residue. They were on time and communicated with me when they were close to the house, since I was not waiting there, but meeting up with them for a move-out carpet cleaning. We will definitely use them again.

      I just moved from one rental house to another and used The Rug Bugs services for both. They were incredibly accommodating for scheduling and even offered to come out a day early for my convenience since they had an opening. Very fast and efficient, professional company.

      They are great!  They were early and I like that!  I had a sectional to clean and they did a wonderful job! Price was great too!  They didn't water down the sectional.  By the time they got to the end of it;  the first part was almost dry. He paid extra attention to some of the extra dirty places!  I'm gonna call them back to do my carpet!

      I am not surprised by the excellent reviews from other Yelpers of this wonderful carpet cleaning business. A friend referred me several years ago and I've always been a happy customer. Byron and Sam came out today right on time (actually five minutes early) and got all my carpets--from the bedrooms to the living areas--looking like new. They removed stubborn stains and spills as well as melted candy and gum left behind by my kids. In addition, I've also relied on Rug Bug once for upholstery cleaning for a high quality, lightly used couch I bought on Craig's List.  Rug Bug's office manager, Mary, who makes the appointments is a gem.  Highly recommended for excellent customer service and value.

  •   This was one of the smoothest carpet cleaning ever. Sam and Curtis were punctual and efficient. Got right into focusing on doing a good job and when they got done it looked brand new..I recommend to try them out very reasonable price and looks like you paid a lot..I have Rug Bug bookmarked! K.

      I could not be any happier with a carpet cleaning service.  If you are looking for a business that knows how to take care of its customers, look no further. I have used Rug Bug on three occasions and am continually impressed with their professionalism.

    A few months back I sought their services after my elderly father got blood on the carpet in his duplex. They attempted to remove the stains but waived the fees after they were unable to completely remove them. I spoke with the owner and he said he waived the fees because he took a liking to my father. I told him he didn't have to that as I knew it was a gamble being blood and all.

    I usually email Mary who does the scheduling for the business and she is very prompt at returning my booking questions.

    Give them a call, you won't be disappointed.

      My wife & I recently prepared our long term home for sale and needed carpet cleaning services.  The Rug Bug provided outstanding communication, service and value!  We would utilize the Rug Bug again and would strongly recommend The Rug Bug services to others.

  •   Rug Bug was recommended by my property management company for when I moved out of a house I was renting.  They were on time, did a great and fast job, and the price was good.   Very nice to get such easy and great service!  (And way better and less stressful than trying to clean the carpets myself.  I never could have gotten them as clean as Rug Bug did.)

      I was referred to them by a very satisfied customer.  I left a message and received a return call in a timely manner.  Jeff called me before my appointment and they were able to come earlier than expected.  Jeff and Sam were friendly and got right to work.  Jeff was very meticulous in his work and explained any areas of concern. They both answered all my questions and gave me advice on upkeep and care of my carpet going forward.  

    I highly recommend this company and am thrilled to find them for future carpet cleanings!!!

      The BEST! I will not use anyone else. Great customer care, hard working and an amazing value! Byron and Mary bring a small company "mom and pop" work ethic to the job.  Amazing service and product.

  •   Although they were a little late to the scheduled appointment, they did a phenomenal job on cleaning our carpets and were super quick! I only paid $65 for the area of carpet that I I had cleaned which I had previous paid upwards of $200 for from Stanley Steamer. I wish I would have found them sooner!

    thumb Kerri S.
    12/04/2014

      I made a yelp just to give this company a five star review.

    I called several other companies to get a quote and they all wanted to charge me $200+.  A co-worker recommended this company and they were beyond good!  They charged me less than other companies quoted, they were on time and very friendly. I highly recommend them, and my carpet looks great.  I honestly don't know why more people haven't yelped about them yet. Best kept secret.

      Would give these guys more than five stars if I could.  They have cleaned several houses of mine and my parents' over the years, including some really disgusting renter messes.  They are always prompt, professional, and their prices are excellent.  In addition, their work is impeccable.  My carpets are always ridiculously clean.  I  am very loyal to The Rug Bug!

  •   We used the Rug Bug because our property managers told us we had to when we were moving out. Our carpets were so dirty and gross and the Rug Bug guys made them look so good! We only wished we had known about them before we had ever had plans to move out, we used a different company a long time before and they were horrible. The 2 guys that came to do the carpets were on time and very nice to deal with, and the lady that I arranged the appointment with was very nice & gave the time & date we needed right before moving out. I would definitely use them again.

      Ive been using Rug Bug for 15 years!  They're the best.  I trust them in my home and they do great work.  They've even come at a moments notice when we were out of town and our dog became ill on the house sitter.  I called them from down south and they came that day...and again the next day 🙂   Calling them now to schedule my summer carpet cleaning.  My ma had their son (not sure if he is part of Rug Bug or not) out recently clean her tile floors and she was very happy.  Hoping to get him to do my lino at the same time as his dad is doing the carpets.  Love them!

      You know, these days its hard to get any customer service...not talkin' put my napkin on my lap or refill my water after every sip but ANY service at all.

    The Rug Bug provided as good as service as I could want.  We scheduled an appointment with them (which was about 5 days before their service date) and just as they said they would, we received a phone call 30 minutes before the time they said they would arrive (we could still run errands and get back to the house in time).  

    The cleaner (one of the part owners) was courteous and immediately started working when he arrived.  Finished 3 rooms in about 1.5 hours.  I helped move some of the furniture but he was nice enough to move the furniture back to its place.  He was very friendly and gave me some advice regarding some of the quality and maintenance of the carpeting.

    3 rooms was $90, very comparable to other carpet cleaners in the area.  They were efficient, on time, and professional.  This is a family owned business (over 40 years) that knows their line of work and hopefully will continue to flourish.

    BTW, we initially went with another company (Cumex) who did not show for their appointment time.  When we called them to see what was going on, he informed us that "oh, our machine is broken we won't be able to make it."  Really?  You can't just give your customer a phone call?  We have to call you?  Oh yea, your review is coming.
