why is it important to use professional rug cleaning services?
Whether you call them Oriental rugs or Persian rugs or carpets, if properly cared for, they can last for generations. Why should Oriental rugs (or any rug or carpet) be professionally cleaned from time to time? For the following reasons:
- We can pick up and drop off your rugs.
- Doing a spot test to check for color bleed is important. We always do it whether we have cleaned your rug before or not.
- We are used to dealing with delicate rugs and handle them with great care.
- Other area rugs of any type, material or age can also be cleaned.
- If there is a spill or pet accident, we even have a 24/7 emergency hotline.
Here are some tips to help extend the life of your rug.
- Padding - Padding helps keep the rug from slipping which means less movement and friction for dirt at the bottom and under the rug to cut the fibers.
- Vacuum regularly - But in addition, periodically vacuum the floor under the rug and the underside of the rug. This is almost more important than vacuuming the top for the reasons described above.
- Rotate the rug - Strong light will slowly fade the rug. Rotating the rug will keep the process even. Normal light is fine but if there is direct sunshine, you might want to use shades to reduce the light.
- Avoid the fringes - When you vacuum, try to avoid the fringes because they are more delicate.
- Powerheads and beater bars - Vacuums with these can be very aggressive and damage the rug. Use on thick rug setting or use suction only without the powerhead.
- Don't beat the rug - This could break some of the fibers.
- Don't put a plant on the rug unless it is on a plant stand.
- Never steam clean an Oriental rug. It is excellent for wall to wall carpet and some other rugs, just not Orientals. Our expert professionals will be able to tell you the right way to go for your different rugs.
