Pet-Friendly Rug Cleaning & Combing for Customers in Northern Washington

Your furry friend might snuggle on the rug all the time because it provides warmth and comfort. Whenever they do that, however, bits of fur often become embedded in the fibers on the area rug. Without occasional cleaning, combing, and brushing of the rug, this might cause allergen issues.

To fix this issue you can vacuum your area rug. Sometimes, the embedded bits of fur cannot be removed by vacuuming alone. That's when brushing enters the picture. Brushing will allow you to get rid of any hair or pet fur from your area rug.

Avoid These During Area Rug Maintenance

Regular rug maintenance will help you to keep your rug in good health. However, there are some common mistakes homeowners make. Try to avoid making these mistakes. That includes:

  • Brushing the rug with a harsh brush
  • Brushing against the natural direction
  • Using excessive water while cleaning
  • Improper rug drying

How Often Should I Perform Professional Cleanings for My Area Rug?

While regular maintenance is important, it is also essential to enlist professional rug cleaning services on an occasional basis. Regular maintenance only cleans the surface-level dirt. However, for a deep clean, a professional cleaning session is important at least once a year.

By allowing Steam Sweepers to professionally clean your rug at least once a year, you will preserve and refresh the high-traffic areas of your fine textile and maximize the rug's life cycle.
