Start Fall Off Right With Rug Cleaning

As the leaves in Guilford County start to don a golden hue, it’s time to prepare your home for the cozy season ahead. Area rugs can add a rich and vibrant touch to your home, but keeping them pristine requires a bit of finesse and knowledge. Here at Chem-Dry of Greensboro, we not only specialize in professional rug cleaning but also believe in empowering our community with the know-how to maintain the allure of their precious rugs in between our visits. 

Here are some expert tips to ensure your oriental rugs retain their beauty and elegance throughout the season:

Develop a Vacuuming Strategy

Guilford County is known for its picturesque surroundings, but the outdoors can sometimes find its way into our homes and onto our beautiful rugs. Regular vacuuming is a must to prevent dirt and debris from settling deep into the fibers of your oriental rugs. Make a point to vacuum at least once a week, or more often if you have children and pets, or if the rug graces a high-traffic area like the foyer or living room.

Minimize Dirt Entry with Smart Practices

Taking a leaf from Guilford County’s community spirit, foster a community within your home that respects the sanctity of your living space. Consider introducing a no-shoes policy indoors to prevent dirt and grime from reaching your cherished rugs. Place a shoe rack near the entrance and invest in quality doormats to encourage guests and family members to clean their shoes before stepping in.

Embrace the Sock Culture

As the weather in Guilford County gets a tad cooler, make socks your best friend. Not only do they keep you warm, but wearing socks prevents the transfer of natural oils and sweat from your feet onto the rug, which can attract more dirt over time. It’s a simple yet effective measure to maintain the vibrancy and cleanliness of your oriental rugs.

Revitalize Your Living Space by Rearranging Furniture

Occasionally, rearranging furniture is more than just a home makeover strategy; it helps distribute the wear and tear on your rug evenly. Plan to move your furniture slightly every few months to prevent pressure points and indentations on your rug, giving it a prolonged life and balanced look.

Immediate Action for Spills

Despite our best efforts, spills do happen, especially with the hustle and bustle that accompanies the fall season. In case of a spill, promptly blot the area with a white cloth or paper towel to absorb the majority of the liquid. For solid spills, remove the solids first and then dab gently to clean the area. Remember, scrubbing aggressively might cause the stain to set in deeper, making it more challenging to remove later.
