We’re a team of trained professionals who specialize in keeping carpet looking clean and pristine! So go ahead; give us a call this spring and we’ll come out and restore your carpet to its original condition! But in the meantime, here are 3 ways to help your carpet look its best.

 

Vacuum Frequently

 

It can’t be avoided or put off, friends! Your carpet needs to be vacuumed at least twice weekly. Not only does this help to extract dirt and debris from the fibers of your carpet (which actually work to break down your carpet fibers) but it also keeps the carpet from becoming matted down. It keeps it looking like new!

 

Utilize Area Rugs

 

To cut down on foot traffic on your carpet, or even to conceal an unsightly stain, you can utilize area rugs! Area rugs make great decorative additions to our home, but they also help to protect our carpet. Too much foot traffic and it wears down quicker! So have a great time shopping for your new living room area rug!

 

Rely on the Professionals

 

Lastly, it’s always wise to call in a professional steam cleaning company from time to time. We can extract debris from your carpet that you vacuum cleaner doesn’t even touch. We can also get rid of tough carpet stains, whether they’re on your carpet or on your area rugs. We can restore your flooring to its original condition!

Careful Cleaning for Area and Oriental Rugs

Let us show you how well we take care of them by offering our services to you, and by telling you all about them right here! Go on, keep reading!

 

Beginning the Process

 

Have you ever imagined what exactly dirt can do to your rugs? Loose dirt particles become stuck in the carpet fibers, causing discoloration, and a reduction in your rug’s lifespan. Not only that, but dirt particles essentially break down carpet fibers by eating away at them! This is why it’s so important to occasionally have your rugs cleaned a professional.

 

Cleaning Your Area and Oriental Rugs

 

So how does a professional clean area and oriental rugs, might you ask? Well, very carefully, that’s for sure! We’d never do anything to harm your precious, valuable oriental or area rugs. After we’ve removed dirt particles from your rugs, we then use a pre-conditioning agent and other cleaning agents to thoroughly remove stains, grime, and the rest of the dirt from your carpets! They’ll look amazing when we’re finished!

 

Finishing the Process

 

Finally, it’s time for rinsing and drying: the final step to the cleaning process! Our experts at The Steam Team will carefully rinse your rugs clean of debris, including the cleaning agents. Then we’ll hand-groom your special carpeting to ensure that the fibers lay properly, and that the rug dries evenly.

Area and Oriental rugs make great decorative pieces in our homes, and with a little TLC, we can keep them looking great and even increase their longevity! Below you’ll find a few basic cleaning and care tips for area and oriental rugs, and we’re certain you’ll find them helpful! Happy cleaning!

 

Rug Cleaning

 

As long as your rug is small enough to pick up, you can start by beating it clean. That’s right- this is a great way to take out your frustrations! Shake your rug outside first, and then hang it on a clothesline for a good beating. Afterward, bring it back inside to finish cleaning it by vacuuming.

 

When it comes to washing your rugs, first make sure the rug is “machine washable.” Check the label on your rug for instructions such as these. Also check for the appropriate temperature to avoid damaging the fibers of your rugs! After shaking your rug outside, toss it in the washing machine with all settings corresponding to the washing instructions, and you’re good to go!

 

When vacuuming your rug, use the gentle setting and start from the center, working your way outward. Lift the fringe to vacuum beneath, and viola!

 

Be gentle with the fringe of your area rugs. Check the labels for care instructions, and contact a professional cleaning service for help caring for them. You can definitely rely on The Steam Team to properly care and preserve your rugs- just give us a call!
