Basic Rug Care

Basic Rug Care in Lindon

Rugs deserve the same care as wall-to-wall carpet and, in some cases, require special attention.

  • Washing rugs : If you have a smaller rug that needs to be washed, be sure to check the label to be sure that its safe for the rug to be machine washed. If so, shake the rug outside first and then put it in your washing machine with a mild detergent and at the recommended temperature, which is typically warm water between 90 and 105 degrees. Then tumble dry your rug at the lowest heat setting possible.
  • Beating larger rugs : If your larger rug is easy to handle and pick up, then shake it outside first and then put it over a railing or clothesline to beat it. Next, take the rug inside and vacuum it thoroughly. If the label says that the rug should be dry cleaned only, then save yourself time and frustration by calling the rug cleaning specialists at Intermountain Chem-Dry first to set up an appointment to get your rugs professionally cleaned. Trust your rugs of all types with the technicians at Intermountain Chem-Dry in Lindon, UT who have been highly-trained as Area Rug Experts for all off-site rug cleaning .
  • Vacuuming area rugs : Area rugs with fringe require a special cleaning technique. ¬†While using a gentle suction with your vacuum, start from the center of the rug, and vacuum toward the fringe while also being careful to not catch the strands in the beater bar. Then carefully lift the edge of the rug to vacuum underneath the fringe.
  • Caring for Oriental, Turkish or Persian rugs : Clean your valuable imported rugs according to the rug manufacturer’s specifications or bring in our professional cleaning services. Be sure to always be careful with the fringe on your rug. For heirloom-type rugs, you need our professionals.
