Professional Area Rug Cleaning Questions

How often should I clean my area rug?

How do I determine when it is time to clean my area rug?

To determine if it’s time to clean your rug, try one of these simple tests:

  • Rub your palm on the rug for a few seconds.  If your hand becomes dirty, it is time for cleaning.
  • Kneel down on the rug and smell it.  If you detect a foul odor, it is time to have it cleaned.
  • Lift a rug corner and vigorously shake it up and down several times.  If you see a dust cloud forming, it is definitely time for a cleaning.
  • With the rug facing up, fold a corner of the rug back, away from the pile, to expose the base of the fibers. Have the rug professionally cleaned if there is dirt deep in the pile.

Is my rug even worth cleaning?

That is a personal decision depending on your emotional attachment, if any, to the rug and the replacement value of the rug. Many people design a whole room around their Oriental rug and replacing it could require refurnishing the entire room. It may be cheaper to clean the rug. We will be happy to give you a professional estimate for cleaning to help you make an informed decision.

Possibly. It really depends on the extent of the damage. Another concern would be with the water and dampness from the leaky pot potentially causing the foundation of the rug to become brittle. Please give us a call so we can evaluate your rug.
