Signs Your Rug Needs to Be Cleaned

It’s easy not to think about how clean your rug is until something is spilled on it that could leave a serious stain. After all, most of the time we are walking over them without a second thought. Because most of the time, our rugs get dirty so gradually and across the entire rug, it’s nearly impossible to even notice unless we could compare it to how it looked new. If we can’t immediately tell that it’s dirty, then it probably isn’t right? Not quite. The truth is that anyone who is a lover of unique Oriental or Persian rugs should consider getting their piece cleaned every 1-2 years. If you’re still not sure whether your carpet needs a cleaning, here are our tell-tale signs that it’s time.

A Noticeable Smell

Unfortunately, just like the dust and dirt that builds up right beneath our noses, it can be hard to remember what the rug used to smell like when it was new. Which is why when we say a noticeable smell, you’re going to want to take an honest whiff of what the rug is throwing your way. It’s easy to cover up smells with sprays and fresheners, but it never lasts long, and it doesn’t get to the root cause of the smell. There’s nothing worse than your guests catching a whiff of an odor you’ve gradually become immune to. If you notice there is a smell, it might be time to take your rug to a professional cleaner.

The Rug is Causing Allergies

Rugs are magnets to dust, pollen, and other debris that can stuff up your nose and sinuses year round. While it’s harder to tell in the spring when pollen is going around anyways, if winter comes around and you’re still suffering, the rug should be your first stop. This is especially one to look out for if you have pets, and their skin and fur has gradually become one with your favorite rug. Thankfully a thorough cleaning will have your rug back to its hypoallergenic state! 

One Too Many Stains

We all have busy lives, and prioritizing a rug cleaning in your busy schedule is sometimes hard to justify. Nobody is going to blame you for putting off a cleaning after one more stain, but after a certain point, enough is enough. If you’re worried that your stains have been left for too long or you spilled something that can’t be removed, don’t fret! Our cleaning services have seen it all, and we will do a deep cleaning that is sure to remove whatever you can throw at it.
