Oriental area rugs are very expensive and in order to make you investment last as long as possible regular basis carpet cleaning is required. Oriental area rugs collect dirt and dust just like a sponge, and become dirty before any signs of wear become visible. Here are four oriental carpet cleaning services that will help you clean and maintain your oriental rugs.
Routine Vacuuming: You should vacuum your home’s oriental rugs at least once every month and even more frequently for high traffic areas. High traffic areas are the places that people walk on the most. High traffic areas will experience more wear and tear. You should also use a vacuum with a beater bar for a more efficient vacuuming. A beater bar vibrates your carpet so the vacuum picks up dust and dirt from deeper inside your carpets.
Steam Cleaning: Steam cleaning is a very popular area rug cleaning service because it is effective at cleaning a wide range of carpet problems. It will remove dust and allergens as well as stains and odors. Steam cleaning is a versatile and reliable cleaning service and should be considered for your area rugs at home.
Odor Removal/O-Zone: Sometimes a general carpet cleaning may not be enough to remove unwanted odors. O-zone odor treatment attacks odors on a molecular level and is the most efficient way at removing musty smells, urine odor and any other unwanted odors.
Scotch Guarding: Protect your carpets from stains with Scotch Guard. Scotch Guard is a safe chemical that adds a repellent coating around the carpet fibers. This acts as insurance and gives you more time to clean up a stain. You should consider Scotch Guard for rugs or carpets in your dining rooms.
Moth Proofing: Moths pose a serious threat to oriental area rugs. Prior to putting oriental rugs we recommend moth proofing as well. Moths use the silky fibers that area rugs are made of for food and shelter. As a result moths can cause permanent damage. We recommend mothproofing your area rugs when you put them in storage, or if you do not frequently vacuum your carpets.
