Your rugs are some of your most prized possessions! In order to keep them looking and feeling the best they can be, here are a few rug care tips from the Utah rug cleaning experts at Cleanville! We will cover: Dry soil removal Spot removal Wearing evenly Preventing moth and beetle damage Avoiding UV fading Rugs and pets How to remove dry soils and everyday contaminants: The most important part of rug care (and carpet care) is dry soil removal on a consistent basis. This can be done many ways! The most popular method is vacuuming, which helps remove sand, soil, pet hair, and air pollutants. We recommend a vacuum that has a gentle brush and is adjusted to the proper height. Aggressive brushes will prematurely wear your rug fiber and cause damage. For shaggy rugs, use a vacuum that you can turn the beater bar off, or a suction only canister type vacuum. Vacuum as often as needed according to your foot traffic and environment. Smaller rugs should be shaken out monthly if possible. Removing spots: Spots can be an eyesore on an otherwise perfect rug! Depending on what the source is, here are a few simple techniques you can try for removing a spot. First, remove excess of whatever caused the spot. This can be done with a spatula, or a vacuum if it is dry. If it is a liquid, it is best to start removing it as soon as it happens! Use a towel or spot extraction machine if you have one. Absorb everything you can with the clean towel and then assess the spot. If there is color left behind from the contaminant, you can try wetting another clean towel [...]

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! So what should you look for when choosing a company to professionally clean your expensive textiles? 1. *** Make sure they are not going to clean your hand knotted/wool/silk/viscose/etc... rugs with their HOT WATER truck mounted carpet cleaning system!!! 2. Do they know the differences between rug types, fiber types, and how to clean them respectively? 3. Do they have a submersion wash setup for doing a thorough cleaning on your heavily soiled rugs? 4. Do they have the proper and adequate insurance? 5. Can they pickup and deliver your rugs? 6. Do they offer a fiber protector application after cleaning? 7. Will they let you watch the rug cleaning process or see the cleaning area? 8. Do they stay current on all the latest cleaning methods and tools in the industry? 9. Do they have reviews and testimonials to back up their claims?? Those are just some of the concerns you should have when you are shopping for a rug cleaning professional in your area. 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 [...]
Carpet cleaning is important not just for keeping your home feeling fresh and clean, but also for keeping your carpet in the best shape possible for the longest period of time. Improper maintenance of your carpet can actually cause you to need to replace it sooner, so it’s important to stay on top of it. But just how often do you need a professional deep clean? There are a few factors that go into knowing when it’s time to hire someone to clean your carpets. 1. Clean Your Carpets Before They Start Looking Gross Your carpets are dirtier than they appear, and by the time you can see the wear they're already overdue for a clean. 2. Clean Your Carpets as Often as Your Warranty Dictates If you have a warranty on your carpet, make sure to check how often you are required to have your carpet cleaned in order to maintain that warranty. Often, warranties will require you to have your carpet professionally cleaned at least once a year, but it may change from manufacturer to manufacturer. 3. Clean Your Carpets More Often if You Have and/or Pets If you have children or pets in your home, you’ll need to clean your carpets every 6 to 12 months to keep them well maintained. Between cleanings, be sure that you are vacuuming frequently to deal with the hair and dander that your pets leave behind. If your pets are not yet house trained and have frequent accidents, you’ll need to have your carpets done even more frequently to prevent permanent damage and unpleasant odors. 4. Clean Your Carpets Based on Your Foot Traffic One of the best ways to know how frequently you [...]
