Rug Cleaning in Salt Lake City, UT

Hello friends! Today I want to talk about the rug cleaning market in SLC. A quick Google search will yield a list of results that shows a number of different carpet cleaning companies that say they can "clean" your area and oriental rugs. There are also a couple of rug retail stores that offer rug cleaning as a service as well. And, of course, you will see Cleanville Rug Care on the list!

We get asked a lot of these questions every day and want to make sure the public is informed on the rug cleaning process and why you shouldn't have an average carpet cleaning company clean your valuable investments. Rug cleaning is not an easy task and [...]

These are a few more tips on ways to vet potential carpet cleaners before hiring them and avoiding the mistake of hiring a cleaner that will do poor work. 1. Price Many people’s main consideration when looking for a service or product is the price. However, this is a dangerous game when it comes to carpet cleaners. If a company offers you a cheap price, you risk one of two problems by taking them up on it- they may do poor work, or they may end up added last minute fees to the original quote. Always ask the company if there are any additional fees you should know about before agreeing to have work done.   2. Cleaning Method Different companies will have different methods for cleaning your carpet, but at a bare minimum their method should include the five main principles of carpet cleaning as outlined by the IICRC.   Dry Soil Removal This is usually accomplished through vacuuming before other cleaning equipment is employed.   Soil Suspension This is the use of a pretreatment to “suspend” soils from the carpet fibers. Often the pretreatment is laid out, the carpet fibers are agitated to spread the treatment, and then the treatment is left to stand for a while so that the chemical reaction can be completed.   Soil Extraction After the soil has been suspended, it’s then extracted.
