How We Care For Your Rugs
We take pride in cleaning carpets and floors, but we're great rug cleaners, too. We can clean your Persian and Oriental rugs, as well as the other types of rugs you may have. When it comes to your rugs, we take the greatest care. We can either clean your area rugs while we're in your home or take them home with us, clean them, and return them back to you clean and renewed.
In cleaning your rugs, we make sure to first determine the type of rug you have. This involves examining how the rug was woven together, the glues used to hold the rug together (some rugs do not use a glue to keep the weave together), the fabric type, and the type of dye used for coloring the fabric. This allows us to make sure we use the proper cleaning solutions that will be tough on the dirt but not your rug.
What You Can Do To Care for Your Rugs
While you should have the rugs in your home periodically cleaned professionally, there are a few things that you can do which will help keep your rug looking great.
Just like carpets, vacuuming weekly will help keep dirt and grime from getting pushed deep into the fibers. It may also be wise to vacuum the back of the rugs in your home a few times a year. Since most rugs are on a hard surface, like a hardwood floor, it may be wise to sweep the floor often. This reduces the amount of dust that could gather onto the rug. To reduce scratching the surface below, use non-slip pads. Additionally, non-slip pads are a great safety measure to prevent slips and falls. If a spill occurs on your rug, make sure that both the floor underneath the rug and the rug itself are completely dry before putting it back onto the floor.
Types of Rugs
There are many types of rugs, as well as materials that are used to make them. Rugs can be made from natural materials-such as wool, synthetic materials-like acrylic fibers, or a combination of the two. The same applies to the coloring or dyes used to bring color to a rug. That's why it's important to have a professional cleaner come in and examine the area rug to determine the best cleaning process.
