There are a few simple tips and tricks which can help you keep your area rug(s) in perfect condition.
Natural weather conditions often take a toll on your carpets. Taking a few simple steps can help to minimize the same. Avoid exposing your carpet to prolonged periods of stress, as the same can alter the strength of the carpet. If your rugs bear the weight of the furniture, the rug’s pile can get depressed. Also, if a part of it is exposed to the sun for too long, the natural colors and dyes used in the carpet can fade. Continual rotation of the rug every six months or so will keep it as good as new. #arearugs
Vacuuming is essential for carpet maintenance. Vacuuming once a week should serve the purpose most of the time. But if it is a busy area in the home, or an area where children and pets are present, vacuuming more frequently shall take care of the carpet. Regular vacuuming removes the allergens, dust, pollen, and other particles that might be trapped in the fibers. It is best to also vacuum the back side of the rug to remove dust and contaminants that find their way under the rug.
Cleaning spills and stains
If there is any spillage on the carpet, we suggest that you blot the stain immediately with an absorbent cloth, so that the liquid doesn’t penetrate deep into the rug. Blot the stain gently, without spreading it over the carpet. Rubbing it vigorously can be counterproductive, setting it deep into the yarn. You can also use our Home Pro Spotter solvent solution, protecting the underside with dry towels to absorb the moisture. The use of chemical solvents or stain removal solutions is preferred to any DIY home solutions such as baking soda, vinegar, etc. which can ruin the carpet.
The above-mentioned techniques are good for taking care of your carpet on a day-to-day basis. However, it is recommended to seek our professional cleaning services at least once a year. Doing so will help you maintain the vibrant look and condition of your carpet. You can receive a quote from us here. #arearugcleaning #rugcleaning

A snug underlay protects the floor as well as the underside of the carpet from friction and wear and tear.
