Area rugs are very similar to carpet - after all, they’re made up of the same fibers. You may think that that means they can be treated the same, but all carpet fibers are different. No two area rugs should be cared for the same - it is a little more complicated, but you’ll thank us in the long run. If you live in Pflugerville and need your rugs cleaned call The Steam Team today.
Area Rugs and Their Maintenance
Did you know that area rugs need to be occasionally rotated? Many people don’t realize that when rugs stay in the same position for extended periods of time, they can wear faster. That’s why one of the most important maintenance tips for area rugs is to rotate it occasionally throughout the year.
But, there are a few other things that can help to keep your rug clean and looking brand new continuously.
Area Rugs Need a Deep Clean Every Once in Awhile
Deep cleaning area rugs is not recommended often, but every once in awhile it’s certainly important in order to take optimal care of the fibers. Now, what constitutes a deep clean? We can offer maintenance programs to anyone that lives in Pflugerville, Texas.
First, removing any and all dirt particles is imperative. This also ensures that the rug won’t be damaged further in the cleaning process. Then comes the time to introduce the steam cleaner! In using a steam cleaner over the rug, the fibers are washed and the suction is able to pull anything left behind out from the rug. The difference is typically shocking to our customers.
On the other hand, if rugs aren’t periodically deep-cleaned, you run the risk of damaging the fibers in the long run. So, to keep your area rug looking its best, it’s important to properly care for and maintain its fibers.
