Your rug’s dirty little secrets exposed by local Birmingham rug cleaner.
1. Your rug is hiding dirt. Because of the dense pile construction of area rugs, dirt particles work down through the fibers - to the backing of the rug where it cannot be removed by ordinary vacuuming. Not only dirt but, other types of soil including food particles and pet oils “hide” in the dense pile. Why should you care? This loose grit wreaks havoc on your rug’s delicate fibers, causing a cutting abrasive action as you walk on the rug. Abrasion accounts for fiber loss (wear) and embedded soil stains. In other words, your rug will “ugly" out, and will not live as long of a life as intended.
2. Your rug is harboring microscopic organisms. Your rugs are filtering particles out of the air. This makes your rug an ideal haven for germs, bacteria, and other nasty creatures such as dust mites! Why should you care? Dust mites are too small to be seen but are the most common cause of year-round allergy and asthma. They live in mattresses, pillows, carpets, rugs, furniture, bedcovers, and clothes – anywhere they can feed on dead flakes of human skin. Keep a maintenance routine with To The Rescue rug cleaning, and you;ll have a healthy home.
AREA RUGS NEED SPECIAL ATTENTION
Area rugs should not get the same treatment as your wall-to-wall carpet! Authentic area rugs are very costly and are made from fragile natural fibers, dyes, and foundation materials that cannot be cleaned in the way we usually clean synthetic carpets (such as nylon, olefin, and polyester).
A gentle “hand washing” process must be used to safely clean area rugs. Because more time is involved in hand washing and more complex cleaning products must be utilized to avoid damaging the fibers and dyes, you would expect that area rug cleaning would be more costly than standard carpet cleaning. As one of the few rug cleaners in Birmingham, we have invested tremendous amounts of time, education, and money in our business so naturally, To The Rescue has taken this task of handling your precious rugs seriously for over 34 years.
