Basic Rug Care

Basic Rug Care By Carpet Cleaning Payson


Rugs deserve the same care and attention as wall-to-wall carpet and, at times, require that extra special attention.

Carpet Cleaning Payson Carpet and Tile Cleaning provides basic rug cleaning care tips to help you keep your carpets and area rugs clean and fresh. See the carpet cleaning care tips below by Carpet Cleaning Payson:

  • Washing rugs : If your area rug is small and the label says “machine washable”, be careful to shake the rug outside first. Then place it in the washing machine at its recommended temperature. Use warm water (90 to 105 degrees) and a mild detergent. Then tumble the rug dry at the lowest heat setting or dry it outside on a line.
  • Beating larger rugs : If your larger rug is not hard to pick up, shake it outside first; then hang it over a clothesline and beat with a broom or rug beater like the days of old. Then, vacuum the rug after taking it inside. If the label says ‘dry clean only’, roll it up and take it to be serviced by a professional rug cleaner. Save the time and aggravation by first calling the cleaner to see if they do rug cleaning, as many do not. Trust all of your area rugs with Carpet Cleaning Payson Carpet & Tile Cleaning‘s certified technicians who have been highly trained as an Area Rug Expert for off-site cleaning.
  • Vacuuming area rugs : Area rugs with fringe require a rather special technique. Use gentle suction and begin from the center of the carpet, vacuuming toward the fringe, making sure not to catch the strands in the beater bar. Then lift the carpet edge to vacuum under the fringe.
  • Caring for Oriental, Turkish or Persian rugs : Clean imported rugs according to the carpet manufacturer’s specifications or bring in an expert cleaning service. Be very gentle with fringe. If you have heirloom-type rugs, you will need professionals.
