why you need rug cleaning

You just got through vacuuming your area rugs and like to think they are clean and looking great. Except that last sentence is a completely untrue. It is because vacuuming a rug does not take the place of cleaning a rug, not by far and your rug doesn’t look as great as you think because you haven’t had it cleaned in such a long time.

In fact, your rugs could be more than just a little dirty, it is likely they are full of all sorts of nasty stuff you don’t even want to know about. We mean stuff that would cause nightmares and put you off your dinner. To give you some idea of what could be in your rugs at this very moment we need to pause and give you warning; this is not pretty, you might want to turn your head and avoid it altogether.

Your rug could be full of:

  • Rodent feces
  • Cat urine
  • Mold
  • Dog urine
  • Oil
  • Dirt
  • Dust mites
  • Rodent feces

OK, we admit it, we put rodent feces in their twice, but just to prove a point that gross stuff is in your rugs.

Now that we have your attention, we are here to tell you that vacuuming alone is not enough to keep your Oriental or Persian rug clean. You need the help of a professional. You need the Oriental rug cleaning services provided by Oriental Express right here in Las Vegas. And here are the reasons why.

Your Rugs are Quite Delicate

That is not to say your Oriental rug or Persian rug is not well-made, quite the opposite actually. In fact, your rug is of the highest quality and very durable. But this doesn’t mean you can just toss it in the washing machine or dump cleaning chemicals on it and scrub out the dirt and filth without a consequence.

Rolex watches are some of the finest watches in the world. They are put together by hand and are even made from stainless steel developed by the company. But when you need to have your Rolex cleaned, you take it to someone who knows what they are doing as opposed to dipping it in some concocted solution you buy at the store.

It Takes More Time Than You Have

You are a busy person and when you do have some spare time to yourself, the last thing you want to be doing is cleaning your rug. We say this because you might think that cleaning a rug is a quick and easy process. But then, you would be wrong.

You see, your rug needs to be washed on both sides using a cleaner formulated for a delicate rug. Some rugs even require hand dry cleaning. The fringes of your rug all need to be washed separately, by hand. Then your rug will need to be dried under controlled temperature and humidity. The bottom line is you don’t have the knowledge or time to clean your own rug.

Make things easy on yourself by calling Oriental Express to have your rug cleaned.
