As the holidays approach, you may be looking around your home and thinking “I’m not ready.”
Looking towards the rooms we are going to be celebrating the holidays in with our loved ones, we may notice that the area rugs just don’t look as bright as they should.
You may ask yourself “is professional area rug cleaning/washing detrimental to the life of the rug?”
The carpet and rug institute says “The beauty in life of your rug depends on the care it receives. Proper cleaning will keep it looking great for its full lifetime, help improve your indoor air quality and keep your warranties intact.”
It is important to hire the right kind of rug cleaner when cleaning an area rug. Most carpet cleaning companies always use alkaline caustic chemicals to clean their synthetic carpets. This can really damage and ruin the protein fiber of a wool or silk rug. Make sure the company who you hire is currently certified as a company by two training and certification organizations specific to natural fiber rug cleaning. The two organizations are the ICRC (that’s the Institute of inspection cleaning and restoration certification), and also by Woolsafe USA. These are very important certifications- a company cannot just purchase them. It requires the business owners and employees to go through educational classes on a regular basis, to maintain a positive reputation in the community with ethical business practices, and to annually prove their credibility, and insurance status.
Worried About Spots and Spills?
Wouldn’t it be nice if when making considerations of where your guests will dine and celebrate the holidays, you didn’t have to worry about permanent damage to your rugs from spots and spills?
Another thing you may want to consider is fabric protection for the surface of your rug which you will be walking on. Four seasons right care studio we offer top quality wall safe rug protection as an additional service after a cleaning. Be sure to ask about this when you bring your rug in for a cleaning or when we pick it up.
