Area rugs are the ideal way to add warmth, a touch of style and comfort to any room, whether carpeted, tiled or on hardwood or vinyl flooring. However, area rug cleaning can be a chore as it can attract dirt both on top and underneath.
To ensure that the area rugs in your home provide you with years of value, it is highly recommended to have them professionally cleaned and maintained on a regular basis. Professional area rug cleaning provides the following benefits:
- Removal of dirt and grit that has built up over time.
- Stain removal.
- Eradicates dust mites, bacteria and other microorganisms that could be hazardous to your health.
- Expert fringe cleaning and maintenance.
- Renewing your rugs to look as good as new.
There are a wide range of different area rug cleaning methods available. Steam cleaning is the preferred technique for most types of area rugs as it provides for all the benefits mentioned above. However, in cases where hard to remove stains are present, chemical cleaners may be necessary to restore the rug to it’s original beauty.
Steam cleaning is least likely to cause any damage to a rug, no matter what material it is made of or the color, pattern, and weave. Chemical cleaners may cause colors to fade, material to shrink or warp and/or damage the fibers of the rug causing it to deteriorate faster.
Another great benefit of steam cleaning is that the rugs will dry much faster than using other rugcleaning methods. This is due to the fact that the carpets are not soaked and that the steam will evaporate quickly allowing for a much faster drying time.
