Eastern Long Island residents are no strangers to dust and dirt. When it comes to our rugs, dust and dirt are easily absorbed into the fibers. The more dust and dirt your rugs absorb, the more wear and tear your rugs will experience, which can lead to a shorter lifespan. The best way to clean your rugs is to have a professional come in periodically but you should still strive to keep your rugs clean at all times.
Rugs are great when it comes to acting as filters to trap dust, dirt, and other particles that enter your home. But just like any other filter, if they become too full, they are no longer able to function as they should. Eventually, all the trapped particles can lead to an infestation of bacteria or pests. Dust, grime, bacteria, and pests? This is a recipe for disaster. The additional germs can be harmful to you and your loved one’s health. Therefore, keeping your rugs clean is detrimental.
Even if your rug is hanging on the wall as a decorative piece, unless you have it fully encased, your rug may suffer from staining. Food or drink spills, muddy shoes, craft time mishaps, or layers of dust and grime can stain your rugs. You can attempt to remove the stains yourself, but unless you have experience in removing stains from rugs, you may end up discoloring or damaging your rugs further. If you’re not sure how to clean your rugs give your local professional, like the Olde World Rug Washing Company, a call. Our experienced professionals can answer all your rug cleaning and washing questions.
Surprisingly, rugs can attract mold. This is true for homes that have high amounts of humidity in the air. When mold grows, it can trigger a plethora of health issues, especially to those who have sensitive skin. Not only can mold cause health issues but it can also emit an unpleasant mildew smell. Regular rug cleaning can help prevent mold growth.
