Your Rug Cleaning Questions Answered

My pet had an accident on our rug. What should I do?

Pets are great, but accidents happen. So what’s the key to handling these unfortunate incidents? The most important thing you can do after an accident is to focus on absorbing as much liquid as possible. Then you can call in professionals who will be able to remove any evidence left behind in a gentle manner that won’t damage your precious rugs!


Why is the dye bleeding on my rug?

Dyes can bleed, fade or weaken for a number of reasons:


  • The use of stain removers containing bleach
  • Fumes from certain chemicals
  • Improperly washing rugs 
  • Exposure to pet urine 
  • Excessive sunlight 


Rugs produced with defective dyes, inadequate dying methods, or after-market coloring may also experience bleeding. 


How can I make my rug last longer?

Rugs need to be vacuumed regularly, especially if they’re in high-traffic areas. Much of the soil that ends up between rug fibers is composed of dry particulate matter and can have an abrasive effect on your carpets accelerating wear and tear over time


If you’re looking to extend the life of your rug, having it cleaned by professionals every few months will be sure that dirt and dust are removed beyond what you can do on your own. This extra attention pays off in increased durability!


How should I prepare for a rug cleaning visit from Chem-Dry?

Chem-Dry rug cleaners are efficient and quick, but it’s important to prepare for their visit. Begin by removing any light furniture or clutter in the area because they will vacuum up all dirt before starting!


When preparing for area rug cleaning, it is important to make sure everything is in place. First, you should inspect your area rug for any stains or flaws you want the technician to pay special attention to. Next, if you have pets, be sure to put them away; this will ensure the technician can work without any distractions. Finally, make a clear path from your driveway and from the door to your area rug; this will keep the technician safe and help ensure an efficient and effective cleaning process!
