Did you know that 64% of U.S. homeowners have rugs in their homes; found a survey by the IICRC, but only 40% clean them on a regular basis. Like carpets, rugs require proper maintenance to retain their appearance and durability.

Area rugs tend to be made of more delicate fibers, questionable dyes and woven constructions that can easily be damaged by do-it-yourself procedures or even professionals without adequate training and experience.

Certified technicians are trained to recognize different fibers, constructions and types of carpet and rugs, along with their potential problems. They have the equipment, training and experience to restore the beauty of carpet and rugs — improving the look of your home or business and protecting the indoor environment, as well as your investment.

Area rugs are more popular than ever with consumers today, thanks to the increase in hard surface flooring. If you’ve purchased a high-quality area rug for your home, you may wonder how to protect your investment and maintain its beauty.

Fiber content and construction are the major factors that determine the appropriate rug cleaning method. The IICRC offers several tips for keeping your rugs looking like new:

-Vacuum rugs on a regular basis. Fringe should be hand-vacuumed only.
-When spills occur, scoop or blot-up the excess. Then dilute the area with water and blot – don’t rub – until no more color is visible on your clean, white towel.
-Professionals can clean the rugs at the location but, ideally, rugs should be removed from the home or office to be professionally cleaned and dried.
-Rotate your rugs once a year to ensure even wear.

How often should your rug be professionally cleaned? The answer depends on its location in your home. Does it get heavy foot traffic? Are there any pets? Often, animals are drawn to rugs and can leave behind unpleasant surprises that require specialized treatment.*

We hope that this gave you a little insight as to how you should maintain your area rugs and what to look for when having them cleaned by professionals.

Always remember, “It can never be 2 Clean!”
