The Oriental rug has come a long way. From the ancient East to the modern Dallas homes, the rug carries rich histories and, most of the time, abundant dirt. The rug is too welcoming an accessory that its constant invitation toward dirt requires constant cleaning. However, an article posted on Cleanfax.com advises that rugs should not be cleaned where it was made dirty:
"…you are not getting the rug thoroughly cleaned, and the second is that — in most cases — you are causing long-term damage to those woven textiles.
I receive, on a weekly basis, technical help requests from cleaners or insurance case help requests from adjusters regarding damaged rugs.
The rugs involved range in value from $100 to $100,000. The cause of the problems inevitably comes down to a lack of knowledge about the rugs being cleaned and how to clean them properly."
A combination of misinformed cleaning techniques and unprofessional tools and solutions can also cause rugs to lose both its outer beauty and fine texture. Cleaning rugs with limited understanding of the rug's components and numerous material quirks is going to cost you money and a sad-looking rug in the future.
The solution? Professional rug cleaners. Rug cleaning in Dallas is neither a new trend nor a hyped business. It is an industry that has proven the necessity of expert rug cleaning across decades. Businesses boasting of a long-winded heritage such as Oriental Rug Cleaning attest to the constant need for the specialty service.
Whether it is rug cleaning in Richardson or Dallas, the process should be done systematically within service centers that make use of only the best equipment. This way, you can bring back your oriental rugs to their original beauty and make them the center of attention once they are laid out.
