Having clean area rugs is more than just healthy for your family and pets. It can also prolong the life of the rugs. If you have just purchased your area rugs, you already realize the expense involved in doing so. But even if you have not just done this, you probably realize the benefits of keeping your rugs clean. Rugs add both beauty and value to your home if they are well maintained. Cleaning them helps to keep your home free of allergens and odors as well. As a general rule, rug cleaning by a professional, certified firm such as Cleaner Carpets & Surfaces should take place about once per year. For extreme heavy traffic areas, steam cleaning may be required more often. Proper, professional cleaning will not leave a sticky residue behind and can be done as many times per year as needed. Keep in mind that many stain resistant warranties require professional steam cleaning every two years. Professional cleaning removes the damaging soil in traffic area that vacuuming has not been able to remove.
Have children or pets? Because rugs collect allergens, bacteria and chemicals in their fibers and kids or pets are low to the ground, it’s healthier for them if you keep these areas as irritant-free as possible. This is also the guideline for rooms frequented by people with strong dust mite allergies. Having your rugs, carpeting and bed linens treated with an all-natural anti-allergen treatment is also recommended. Ask our friendly and knowledgeable carpet cleaners about these treatments when the visit you home to clean your carpets and rugs.
