A Professional Cleaning Can Extend The Life of Your Rugs and Carpet

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Thu, Jan 23, 2020 @ 03:14 PM

Having a professional cleaning, at the very least annually, on your carpet and rugs is so important. A dirty rug or carpet can have thousands of dust mites living in the dust. Not to mention, the pounds of soil can accumulate underneath and in it every year. Carpet and rugs can contain several indoor contaminants and promote the growth of mold in damp areas which often cause allergies. Because it can be a health hazard, it is important to always keep your home furnishings clean.

Carpet

Dirt causes a lot of damage to the carpet, it grates against the yarn, making scratches in the fibers and taking away the luster. Dirt trapped eventually goes down to the carpet backing and deep within your rugs. This dirt scrapes away the fibers, wearing them out. High-traffic areas will look dull and faded compared to the rest of your home.

Show Some Love to Your Carpet and Rugs

One major benefit of a professional rug and carpet cleaning service is that it helps extend the life of your furnishings. Removing this build-up of dirt and debris will help improve the longevity of the carpet or rugs. Furthermore, the dust and other debris are more likely to adhere to a dirty rug or carpet than a clean one. Homeowners can also help decrease the build-up of debris in their area rugs and carpet between cleanings by vacuuming regularly.

By keeping your carpet and oriental rugs consistently maintained, you will be providing your family with a healthier environment. Having your furnishings professionally cleaned annually will help increase the appearance and longevity of your furnishings. It is a great time to have a professional cleaning to remove the dirt and debris that has settled into your home this season.

Cleaning Up After The Holidays

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Thu, Dec 19, 2019 @ 12:49 PM

The holidays are a joyous time with family and friends, but that seasonal glow can fade quickly when you're faced with the aftermath: a house to clean up once all your guests have left. Getting your place back into shape can be a daunting task, but we've got a few smart tips to help you do it in time for the new year.

Clean up after houseguests.
Give your house’s surfaces a deep clean. Wash all your linens. Vacuum carpets, floors, and baseboards to give yourself a fresh start. Clean out your refrigerator - eat the last of those yummy leftovers and then clean and store your leftover containers.

Strip the Christmas tree carefully.
Use as much care taking your tree down as you did putting it up to save you some headaches next year.

Rubbing alcohol can remove sap from washable clothing and knit gloves because it acts as a solvent. For clothes, even a down coat, saturate the area with alcohol, let sit for a minute, then launder in warm water with regular detergent. Heat sets stains, so be sure all the sap is gone before using the dryer. Repeat the process if any remains.

Check your carpet, rugs and furniture for stains.
The longer they set, the more difficult they will be to remove. If you spot any, use a spray bottle to lightly apply a mixture of warm water and mild dishwashing liquid. Blot with a paper towel and continue spraying and blotting until the stain is removed. Rinse with clear water and blot again. Fluff the pile and allow it to dry. To be safe and to save time, contact a professional carpet, rug and upholstery cleaning expert.

Use this time to get rid of what you don't need.
Did you get some great new gifts for your kitchen or other places in the house? That's great! But you may not need two or three chip and dip sets in your cabinet. Either discard old ones or donate them. Have kids? Recruit them to help by creating a race to see who can gather their toys first. Store toys that are of no interest at the moment and rotate or bring them out every once in a while to keep their spark.

Therefore, the holidays can do a number on your home! Between house guests, holiday feasts, and kids on school breaks, your house probably needs some TLC. Thankfully, we have you covered. Call Rug Renovating today to have us help with your post-holiday cleaning needs!
