Choosing the Best Area Rug for Your Space

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Thu, May 16, 2019 @ 10:36 AM

There is good reason an area rug should carpet a room. They're practical, providing cushion, comfort, and warmth over a concrete, tile or wood floor. But they also provide artistic value to a room's design. Considered artwork for the floor, which acts as the frame, size does matter — and it's often a big concern for the homeowner unsure of how to create that well-balanced space.

600
So designers say start with the rug first. From its design, you can choose colors to paint your walls and find throw pillows and paintings to complete the decor. Just make sure to follow this rule of thumb: The area rug should be a minimum of six inches and no more than two feet away from the wall.

When you take into consideration the different uses of an area rug, shapes and design preferences, however, other factors weigh in as well.

Rug Care Tips: Preventing Mildew and Dry Rot in Rugs

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Thu, Mar 21, 2019 @ 12:09 PM

When rugs stay wet too long, they become mildewed and, eventually, suffer dry rot. The classic example is dry rot caused by a potted plant placed on a rug. The typical result is a horribly rotted circular area in a carpet that is otherwise in good condition. Don’t even think about putting a potted plant on a rug. No matter how clever you are or if you use a glazed pot or saucer, it may not work. Whether you put a vapor barrier between the saucer and the rug, the rug will get wet. Most importantly, it will stay wet. And unbeknownst to you and will become a rotten mess in an area about one foot in diameter.

Another typical situation comes up when rugs are stored poorly. Therefore, when they are stored in a garage and become wet without anyone realizing, this can become an issue. Even though dry rot is not inevitable in such cases, a mildew smell is, and sometimes the smell of mildew simply cannot be removed. I have seen several occasions when moisture under a house has caused rugs on the floor above to mildew.

Caring For Your Rugs


Please do not worry needlessly, though. A little water on a rug, or even a lot of water, will not cause it to mildew unless the rug stays wet too long. For instance, when a rug is stepped onto after a shower or bath rarely are hurt by water because they have time to dry out between bath times. And don’t panic if you spill a glass of water on a rug. Lastly, just dry it as well as you can with towels.

Unfortunately, besides causing mildew and dry rot, water sometimes causes dyes in rugs to bleed or run. All you can do in this situation is to get the rug dry as soon as possible and to send it to an expert rug washer. If a rug is just a little wet, as from a spilled glass of water, do what I suggested above. Merely soak up as much water as possible with a towel or paper towel and everything will probably be just fine. If you are worried about the floor underneath, elevate the wet spot until it dries.

When All Else Fails


A rug that is thoroughly wet is another matter. The goal is to dry it before it mildews in about four or five days. If you have a Shopvac or other vacuum that will take in water, vacuum out as much water as you can. If you have sunlight and a place to lay the rug, open it and let it finish drying outdoors. Or, if you know that the rug is dirty as well as wet, dry it enough so that you can get it to an Oriental rug cleaning specialist.

Five Star Customer Reviews for Rug Renovating

“The service was great, and the people were nice

This was the first time using Rug Renovating. They did a repair on one of my rugs as well as cleaned three others. They did a good job. It turned out well. I would continue to use their service, but I'm running out of rugs. I would tell a potential customer of theirs that the service is good. I can't complain. I had no problems with scheduling. And they were easy to work with. They were polite and courteous. I would recommend Rug Renovating to my family and friends.”

Importance of Clean Furnishings with Professional Rug and Carpet Cleaning Services

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Thu, Feb 21, 2019 @ 01:07 PM

Of all the furnishings in a home, your rug and carpet experience the most direct traffic which contributes to dirt accumulation and general wear and tear. It is important to keep your rugs and carpet clean and well maintained to not only keep it looking new, but also to increase its longevity.

AdobeStock_28845539
Rid Your Home of Harmful Allergens and Bacteria

Your carpet and area rugs serve an important purpose in the home. They also trap allergens, bacteria, and other particles by acting as giant filters. This keeps harmful contaminants in your carpets and rugs and out of the air you breathe.

But here’s the catch—just like with any filter, your carpet and area rugs become full. If not cleaned regularly, your furnishings can actually be breeding grounds for bacteria. As a result, this can contribute to asthma and chronic allergies. Yikes!

By having your carpet, upholstery, and area rugs cleaned at least every 6 months, you can be sure your home is cleaner and healthier.

If you have pets, carpet and area rug cleaning is recommended more frequently—about every 3 months.

Carpet and Rug Cleaning Can Help Prevent Mold Growth

Especially in areas with high humidity levels, dirty carpets and rugs are at high risk of developing mold growth. In precipitous weather, moisture frequently gets tracked into the home. Therefore, this can sink deep in the carpet fibers if not dried and vacuumed immediately.

Having your carpets and area rugs cleaned regularly can prevent mold and mildew growth, because professional rug and carpet cleaners have high-powered drying tools that annihilate moisture. By eliminating moisture, you can prevent mold growth that can be harmful to your health if ignored for too long.

Extends The Life of Your Rugs and Carpet

One major benefit of a professional rug and carpet cleaning service is that it helps extend the life of your furnishings. Over time, dirt, dust, allergens, and other debris accumulate in the carpet. This gets embedded within the fibers which can eventually cause the fibers to split and deteriorate. Removing this built up of dirt and debris will help improve the longevity of the carpet.  As dust and other debris are more likely to adhere to a dirty rug or carpet than a clean one.

Professional carpet and rug cleaners typically use cleaning methods involving hot water extraction. This method can effectively remove the debris from deep within the fibers and leave the carpet sanitized. Homeowners can also help decrease the build-up of debris in their area rugs and carpet between cleanings by vacuuming regularly.

Keeping your carpet and rugs consistently maintained is so important for your family's health. Having them professionally cleaned annually, you can increase the appearance and longevity of your furnishings while contributing to a healthier environment. The spring season is a great time to have your carpet professionally cleaned to remove the dirt and debris that has settled in your home all winter.

3 Home Health Benefits to Carpet Cleaning

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Thu, Jan 24, 2019 @ 11:20 AM

Firstly, carpet cleaning can improve the appearance of your home. It can also extend the life of your carpet. But perhaps, most importantly, a vital and valuable benefit from the process is improving you and your family's health.

According to the American Lung Association, if members of your household suffer from conditions that can affect their breathing, such as snoring or asthma, it's especially crucial that you vacuum your carpets at least three times a week.

Beyond vacuuming regularly, you may also benefit from having your carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year. If you're not fully convinced of the benefits of professional carpet cleaning, consider the following top three ways the process leads to a healthier home:

AdobeStock_136191724

1. Carpet cleaning eliminates trapped pollutants.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, a dirty carpet can retain several sources of indoor air pollutants, including pet dander, cockroach allergens, lead, particle pollution, and everyday dirt and dust. Toxic airborne gases can adhere to these particles and also get trapped within the carpet.

Therefore, these toxic gases can be released through everyday activities. During activities such as vacuuming and walking across the carpet, which can cause them to contaminate the air in your home. Professional carpet cleaning services kills these bacteria through special shampooing formulas and can remove deeply trapped pollutants with high-powered vacuums.

2. Carpet cleaning can clear out dust mite infestations.

Many homes have dust mite infestations, yet most homeowners aren't aware of the infestation, because the creatures are microscopic. Dust mites themselves aren't allergens, but they often leave behind feces and body fragments which are.

Because of the microscopic size of these particles, they can easily be inhaled when the area is disturbed, which can exacerbate allergies. Many professional carpet cleaning companies utilize a technique known as steam cleaning when performing carpet maintenance work. Steam cleaning exposes your carpet to high temperatures that dust mites can't survive.

3. Carpet cleaning can help prevent mold growth.

Especially in areas with high humidity levels, dirty carpets are at a high risk of developing mold growth when exposed to moisture. In precipitous weather, moisture frequently gets tracked into the home and can sink deep in the carpet fibers if not dried and vacuumed immediately.

Having your carpet cleaned regularly can prevent mold and mildew growth. This is because professional carpet cleaners have high-powered drying tools that annihilate moisture. By eliminating moisture, you can prevent mold growth that can be harmful to your health if ignored for too long.
