Professional Rug Cleaning

Posted: June 12, 2012

Rugs are an important part of the decor of your home, and the right rug will make your home cozier and more beautiful. To find the best rug that fits your interior or outdoor space there are literally hundreds of thousands of styles, colors and patterns to choose from!

With buying a rug comes a little bit of maintenance. Just like the rest of your home, your rug needs regular cleaning. Depending on the traffic of the room where your rug is, the cleaning should be performed from once a year to once in 3-5 years.  You can usually tell by the color of your rug if it needs cleaning, and of course by any obvious stains or spills.

Regular rug cleaning will not only keep your rug clean, but also kill the allergens that could negatively affect your health. The colors of your rug will be brighter, the fibers softer, and the rug will be free of dust and stains after cleaning.

Is vacuuming alone  enough to keep rugs clean?

Vacuuming of your rug is needed on a regular basis to keep your home free of dirt and dust. However, vacuuming alone will not eliminate the stains from food, drinks, or pets on your carpet or rug.
