You’ve already made the decision, scheduled the appointment, and are in love with your fresh and clean area rugs. The next question becomes how to care for the rug between professional services. The answer is easier than you may believe. Area rugs can be both delicate and durable. As a matter of fact, the oldest rug in the world is estimated to be over 3,500 years old! You probably don’t expect to keep your rug around for that long, but regular at-home maintenance will go a long way to keeping your rugs healthy and beautiful.
The first thing to do is avoid walking on the rugs with street shoes, or shoes meant to be worn outside. These kinds of shoes track muck and mud from the outside world all over your home and rug and make keeping your floors clean more difficult. The next step is to do your best to keep your pets from doing their business on your rugs. This is a tough one, we know. When accidents happen, give us a call as soon as possible and follow the steps from this area rug cleaning guide to minimize any possible damage. And finally, try to keep your area rugs vacuumed. Once a week should do the trick, but that depends on your home and lifestyle. A busy home with lots of people may mean the rug needs to be vacuumed more often.
Area rug cleaning requires unique techniques compared to cleaning installed carpet for many reasons. The most obvious reason is that area rugs are free floating on the floor. Most people place them on top of hardwood or tile floors.
When steam cleaning, we clean the whole rug, all the way to the edges and fringe, using various methods to protect the floor below, whether it is the wood that the moisture can damage, or the grout lines that can absorb the color of the area rug.
We have spent many years perfecting our cleaning techniques. At our facility, we begin by dusting both sides of the area rug, to remove any loose dust, dirt, or grime. Removing this refuse will allow us to more thoroughly clean the rug rather than the muck trapped on it. We then pressure wash both the front and back of the area rug with a special product that not only cleans the fibers but also restores them.
Once the area rug has been dusted, scrubbed, and pressure washed, it is then pressed using our innovative washing machine, which has been designed specifically to lie flat and clean area rugs. Per your request, the area rug can also be treated with various products such as carpet protectant or sealer, moth protection, deodorizer, and much, much more.
After the cleaning, we brush the area rug before placing it in a well-ventilated drying room, where it rests for a few days to dry. We then return it to you, and, as a bonus, we never charge for pickup or delivery.
