Basic Rug Care

Basic Rug Care in West Valley City

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

  • Washing rugs : If your smaller rug needs to be cleaned, then be sure to check the label prior to washing it to verifiy that its safe to be washed in your washing machine at home. If so, then shake out the rug outdoors first, then place it in your washing machine with a mild detergent and wash with warm water. Finally tumble dry your rug at the lowest heat setting possible.
  • Beating larger rugs : If your larger rug is easy to pick up, shake it outside first; then put it over a clothesline or large railing and beat it. Next, take the rug inside and vacuum it thoroughly. If the label recommends that the rug be dry cleaned, save yourself time and frustration by calling the rug cleaning specialists at Intermountain Chem-Dry in West Valley City, UT. Trust your rugs of all types with the technicians at Intermountain Chem-Dry who have been trained as Area Rug Experts for all off-site cleaning needs.
  • 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 being careful to not catch the strands in the beater bar. Then 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 rug cleaning service. When handling your rug, always be gentle with the fringe. For heirloom-type rugs, you need our trained professionals.
