Keeping the rugs cleaned is probably one of the biggest priorities for any rug owner. Area rugs can sometimes be quite expensive and a big investment for many homeowners. Area rugs are a nice accessory to have around the house and can really beautify a room, so keeping them clean and fresh should always be the goal.
There are many different methods and techniques for Antique Rug Cleaning and each of them has their own advantages and disadvantages. One option that people tend to overlook though is having their rug professionally cleaned. Many shy away from this option because of the higher cost that is sometimes involved as compared to many do-it-yourself cleaning methods. What many do not know is that hiring a professional rug cleaner has a lot of advantages and can be beneficial not only to your rugs but also to you, the owner. Here are two of the top reasons why you should hire a professional rug cleaner.
An Expert Cleaning Techniques – Do it yourself techniques are adequate and inexpensive but they do not compare to the level of cleaning that professional rug cleaners can give your rug. Ordinary vacuuming and cleaning are good options but some stains can be difficult to thoroughly remove. Professional cleaners are experts in their field and are trained to clean rugs the best way possible. They have equipment and methods that are not ordinarily available to the average consumer, which help clean your rug expertly and thoroughly.
A Prolong Your Rug’s Lifespan – Many people are wary of the cost of hiring a professional cleaner but what they do not know is that it can end up being cheaper in the long run. This is because your rug will be in expert hands and will be cleaned properly and thoroughly. Some people who prefer to clean their rugs on their own can go about it the wrong way. The result could end up ruining their rug rather than cleaning it. With professional cleaners, you won’t have to worry about this problem anymore. You can rest assured that your rug will be handled and cleaned properly.
If you are contemplating the cleaning options for your rug, consider hiring a professional rug cleaner to do the job. It’s sure to be hassle free and you will end up with a clean and spotless rug to enjoy. Convenience and piece of mind, a great combination that is alone, worth its weight in gold.
Is Your House too Big for Your Rugs?
If you have not noticed in recent years people are building houses that are quite a bit larger than normal. Many of these houses include not only more rooms, but also larger rooms as well. One such room that is often super sized in these new houses is the living room. Often times this room is almost double the size of your average houses living room.
Because of this larger room size you can not just go out and buy a standard size rug like the 9X12 area rug or the 8X10 area rug. These smaller area rugs just do not look right in such a large room. That is when it comes time to furnish your new room you really have to start consider using large area rugs in rooms like these. Granted they cost a little more, but the appearance and atmosphere of your room depends on finding the proper sized rug.
Many of these large area rugs have to be special ordered to fit your specific room, unfortunately often times when rugs are special ordered they also come at an increased price over what a standard 9X12 area rug would. Luckily though because it is a special order item these large rugs can be custom ordered in any color or style that you can imagine.
My all time favorite is a large zebra rug. The great thing about decorating with a large zebra rug is the fact that you can create more of a theme for the room instead of just using a particular color scheme like red. Using these rugs not only add a fun element to a room, but are also a lot of fun to decorate around. Often times zebra rugs are used to create a focal point within a room that more often than not follows a wild jungle theme that looks like it is straight out of Africa.
