Your Rug Deserves Some Pampering
When people start installing more hard floors in homes, the first thing many of them do is cover those floors with soft area rugs. Some of these rugs cost thousands of dollars, and they need their own special protection.
A rug pad designed and sized specially for your area rug (or rugs, if you are fortunate enough to have several in your home) is the protection they need and deserve.
Why go with a quality rug pad? Because they:
1. Add cushioning and comfort for you
2. Can add years to the life of a rug
3. Protects the flooring beneath the rug
4. Prevents the rug from slipping and you from falling!
Besides a rug pad, your area rug needs regular cleaning.
Don’t wait for your rug to cry out, “Please help!” It needs a pad of its own, right now. Give it the protection it needs, and enjoy that rug for many years to come. Have a regular maintenance cleaning scheduled with a professional carpet care service company. This will also help prolong the life of your area rug. Give Advanced Carpet Cleaning a call and let us help maintain & preserve your area rugs. Call Today: (870) 208-5250 Serving Wynne & Joneboro Arkansas & Neighboring Counties.
Cleaning Wool Carpet and Rug: Good News? Or Baaaad?
The good news is choosing wool, which is a high quality fiber but not really that popular because of the higher price, means your carpet or rug will last longer, look better and retain value.
The bad news is choosing wool means you won’t see as much dirt on it, and so you may not vacuum or clean it that often — which means your nice, wool carpet or rug may prematurely wear out.
Why is that?
Most consumers base their cleaning frequencies on appearance. That can be dangerous for any carpet or rug, or any surface, for that matter. With wool, the physical makeup of the fiber has the characteristic of hiding dirt, especially those tiny, gritty particles that wear on the fibers. You might compare this to putting sand on a piece of Plexiglas and walking on it. The sand will act as an abrasive, damaging the surface.
While wool fibers won’t damage as quickly as other fibers, such as nylon, polyester or olefin, any type of dirt or soil on them isn’t good news at all.
What you should do is talk to a cleaning professional about cleaning based on frequency, not appearance. Get your cleaning scheduled on a regular basis, and remember that not every situation is the same. Your home may not need as frequent cleaning as another; that’s why a professional opinion is smart.
Yes, wool is good… or baaaad… depending on how you treat it.
