Rug Cleaning in Utica, NY

Rug Cleaning Utica NYThe rugs in your Utica, NY home deserve the same care as wall-to-wall carpet and, in some cases, require special attention.

Washing rugs: If the rug in your Utica, NY home is small and the label says “machine washable”, shake the rug outside first and then put it in the washing machine at the recommended temperature. Use warm water (90 to 105 degrees) and a mild detergent. Tumble your rug dry at the lowest heat setting.

Beating larger rugs: If your larger rug is easy to pick up, shake it outside first; then put it over a clothesline and beat it. Next, take the rug inside and vacuum it. If the label says dry clean only, then roll it up and take it to a professional rug cleaner. Save time and aggravation by calling first to see if the cleaner does rug cleaning, many do not. Trust all the rugs in your Utica, NY home with Chem-Dry technicians who have been trained as an Area Rug Expert for off-site cleaning.

Vacuuming area rugs: If you have area rugs with fringe in your Utica, NY home, they require special technique. Use gentle suction and start from the center of the carpet, vacuuming toward the fringe and being careful not to catch the strands in the beater bar. Lift the carpet edge to vacuum beneath the fringe.

Caring for Oriental, Turkish or Persian rugs: Clean imported rugs according to your carpet manufacturer’s specifications or bring in a professional cleaning service. Be gentle with fringe.
