Oriental area rugs just have a way to pull the look of the room together.
They add a spice of color, pull the eye in with texture and add interesting designs that you wouldn’t be able to pull off with any other textile.
Area rugs are that piece that makes a room feel complete.
These design pieces are catching a lot more than admiring looks.
They are also catching dirt, dust, debris, pet hair and any other substance that is brought through your door.
It’s about time you help your rug look its best!
So what are some steps you can take for an efficient area rug cleaning in the Seattle area?
Vacuuming Your Area Rug
Vacuuming your area rug will prevent large amounts of dirt from piling up.
Vacuuming the area rug on a regular basis will suck up all the dirt and other filth that has been dragged into your home and will create a cleaner place for you.
A little trick to get the maximum amount of dirt out of your rug is to turn it upside down first and vacuum the back of the rug.
This will loosen the dirt that is stuck down deep in the fibers of the area rug.
Some things to remember when you are vacuuming your area rug is to avoid vacuuming over the edges of your area rug. This will prevent frayed edges and worn fringes.
If you already have some frayed edges, be sure not to vacuum over those areas–it will only make the fraying worse.
Be sure to know what material your rug is made out of and know the best way to vacuum and care for that material.
Turning Your Area Rug
If rugs constantly sit in the same position year after year, there will be parts of the rug that show more wear and tear than other parts of the rug.
We here in the Seattle area don’t see much sun, but it is always a good idea to turn them once a year if sitting in areas that see the sun!
Turning your area rug will prevent sun damage.
If your rug remains in the same place for a long amount of time, there is a high probability that it will see some type of sun damage.
Area rugs aren’t meant for discoloration; they are meant to create a statement.
How is an area rug supposed to make a statement when it has discolored blotches on it?
Turning your area rug is also important if it is in a high traffic area.
It’s best for the rug to be rotated so that the same places aren’t being walked over constantly.
When the same part of the rug is continually being exposed to footprints, paw prints, and whatever other prints you can think of, your area rug is bound to show some signs of it.
Turn that rug to keep it looking as fresh as you can!
Shaking Your Area Rug
A more archaic form of keeping your area rug in the best condition possible is giving it a shaking.
Shaking or beating your area rug will release a lot of the dirt and particles that are stuck in the fibers.
If you choose to shake or beat your rug, do it outside and away from any window or door openings.
It’s best to keep that dust outside!
Also, depending on how long it has been since you have cleaned your rugs, it’s wise to cover your face so you aren’t taking in all of the dust right when it comes off of the rug.
I know. I know. Shaking your rug and watching the dirt fly is just what you want to do on a Saturday afternoon!
Use PureClean Carpet Cleaning
Vacuuming, rotating and shaking your rugs will help keep your rugs in good condition but there is one thing that will keep your rugs in pristine condition.

We Call it the Rug Spa!
Professional Rug Dusting
Using the power of over 40,000 harmonic vibrations per minute, our RugBadger ultrasonic cleaner completely removes deeply embedded soil, sediments, and dirt from any area rug or oriental rug we clean.
This process is frequently skipped by other rug cleaning companies in Seattle, Snohomish or Kirkland.
Unfortunately, this step is essential to achieving a thorough cleaning. just like carpets, rugs can store a lot of dirt- up to 11b of soil per square foot or more!
The rug dusting step will ensure that all of the dirt build-up is shaken loose so that it may be washed away in further steps.
Once we’ve removed all of the dry soil with our RugBadger then, the washing begins!
We gently wash both the top and bottom of the rug. We use premium oriental rug shampoos that are highly effective, yet safe and gentle, on the wool rug fibers.
This is another area where we outshine our competitors.
Most other Seattle carpet and rug cleaners do only surface cleaning that is unable to flush all of the soil from the rug.
While surface cleaning services are fine for general maintenance purposes, we strongly recommend that thorough rug cleaning should always be performed by a professional rug cleaning company like ours every 2-3 years.
This ensures a longer life for your rug and a healthier home for your family.
Quick Drying System
The last step for a beautifully cleaned rug is the drying process.
Rather than letting your rug dry on its own, we carefully groom and prep it for the drying process.
We use our patented Aero-Tech machine to powerfully, yet gently, suction all of the water from area rugs and oriental rugs.
Many rugs, except the most delicate, will then be placed in our professional rug drying tower where they will dry carefully suspended in the air.
By using powerful directional air units, we can expedite the drying process. Rugs that are allowed to dry slowly while flat on the floor often become moldy, smelly, and are more prone to rot
Keeping your area rugs in the best shape possible can be possible when you vacuum, rotate and shake your rugs.
