When was the last time you had your area rugs cleaned? Over time rugs accumulate a tremendous amount of dirt, but it isn’t just dirt that gathers – pollen and other allergens that can affect your health also accumulates deep in the fibers of your rugs. The solution – vacuum your rugs frequently and have them cleaned by a professional at least every two years. Also, never have your rugs cleaned at home using hot the water extraction method. Due to a number of different factors, such as dry time, problems with colors running and possible shrinkage, steam cleaning rugs in your home is not a good idea. Use a company that has technicians specifically trained to clean high-value oriental, Persian and other area rugs.
