Area rugs add a certain elegance to the interior design of a room. But after a while those vibrant colors can fade because the carpet fibers become coated with dirt and debris. Area rugs are easy to pick up and shake off but the loose debris isn’t the problem it’s all the oils and dirt on the fibers that are the issue. When oil gets onto carpet fibers it allows the dirt and dust to stick and form a coating that does not come off easily. Vacuuming can help break up some of it but it won’t be able to loosen and remove all the dirt and oil. That is where we come in.

Different Types of Area Rugs
When you’re talking about area rugs it isn’t just one kind fits all. There are different styles and sizes, different materials and color patterns. Identifying the material the rug is made from is very helpful for the cleaning process because different material require different cleaning methods. But the professionals at Neato Carpet Care are well educated and experienced cleaning and handling all different types of rugs and carpets. So no matter what style of rug you have or what kind of material it is made form, our team will get it cleaned for you. There are braided rugs, antique/oriental, fur, silk, nylon, polyester and so many more. There are also different pile heights for rugs.
Low height rugs are less than a 1/4 inch thick.
Medium height rugs are 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.
High height rugs are 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick.
The different pile heights of rugs require different cleaning. For high pile rugs you want to have them professionally cleaned by Neato Carpet Care at least once a year because normal vacuuming alone won’t clean them all the way. Their thick, long fibers hold onto dirt and debris that a household vacuum can’t reach. Low and medium pile rugs should be taken outside and shaken off often. Periodical professional cleanings for all rugs and carpets is a good idea to maintain their quality. Keeping the the tags that have the cleaning instructions on them is a great way to remember which rugs require different cleaning methods. And when our teams come to clean your rugs we will always run an area rug dye test before anything.
