Have You Had Your Rugs Dusted?

river forest rug cleaning il

A study by Eureka found that a 9X12 rug could hide up to 87 lbs of dirt! How much dirt is hiding in your rugs? Dirt can act like sandpaper on a rug. This hidden dirt buildup can prematurely wear out or ugly out a fine oriental or loose woven rug if not taken care of. A thorough cleaning and rinsing is healthy. How long has it been since your last rug cleaning?

In-Plant Rug Cleaning is recommended for oriental and loose woven rugs. These rugs should not be cleaned on location like wall-to-wall carpeting. Having your rugs cleaned in our facility allows us to give your rugs several treatments, not available in the home, for a thorough cleaning to get maximum soil and spot removal. Our processes can help extend the service life of your precious floor coverings.

Run a Soil Test

When people look at their rugs they think they are clean because they can’t see any visible spills or spots. Does this mean your rugs are clean? Actually no, it doesn’t mean your rugs are clean. Sometimes I hear that we never go in that room. Does that mean your rugs are clean? Again, actually no. Try this simple test, put a piece of white paper under the rug, stamp on top of the rug over the paper. Look at the paper and see if you find any dirt on the paper. You might be surprised. Another test would be to take your vacuum attachment and cover it with a cotton towel, a white cotton towel, and vacuum the surface of the rug. You might be really astonished with what you find. I usually shock a lot of people on the job when I use our powerful vacuum with a clean white towel and show the customer how the towel has changed from white to dark within a couple of passes. Remember dirt is not a good thing. These are rugs that are in your home. There is no substitute for regular maintenance.

Full Service Area Rug Cleaning: to be done at our shop

1. First, we pre-inspect your rug to assure that it can be cleaned.

2. Next we lay the rug face down on a grid mat and gently agitate the back of your rugs with a rug duster vacuum. Then a pile lifter vacuum is used to comb and vacuum the top face yarn of your rugs. This process thoroughly removes dry soil before cleaning.

Sometimes when looking at rugs we think there is a “dry rot” problem. Unfortunately it usually is moth damage on a wool rug. Rugs that are not cared for can have this problem. Rugs need to be vacuumed regularly (at least 3 times per year) - back and front. Wool rugs also need to be professionally cleaned regularly. Even if you have a rug hung on your wall the rug needs to be taken down at least 3 times of year and vacuumed thoroughly - back and front. Moth damage is not reversible, so we must do whatever we can to prevent moth damage to our investment in wool rugs

3 Ways to Prevent Moth Damage on Rugs

1. Store your area rugs in a dry place. Moths thrive in humid air locations, so if you you must put your rugs up for storage, make sure they are in an air controlled environment.

2. Clean your area rugs regularly. Moths also like to lay eggs in and devour dirty rugs. Experts recommend that area rugs be cleaned every 12-24 months.

3. Have your rugs treated with moth prevention. After cleaning, a safe, clear treatment can be applied that helps prevent moth infestation in your rug.

How To Care For Your Oriental Rug


To insure even wear, your rug should be rotated once a year. Depending on the traffic, the rotation may vary from six months to two years.


Oriental rugs, like most carpeting , should be vacuumed on a regular basis to remove dirt and restore life to the fibers. Be sure not to vacuum the fringe with your beater bar! Use the hose end of vacuum hose from a canister vacuum.


A quality pad used under your rug helps protect it form dirt, wear and slippage.
