Rug Cleaning After a Chicago Winter

April 8, 2015

rug cleaning chicago

This Chicago winter season has been brutal on us and our rugs.  Tom Jorjorian recommends the following for the care of your rugs.

Salt and soil is tracked on rugs and even though vacuuming can remove surface soiling some of the salt and dirt can penetrate the pile and get imbedded into the depths of the nap.  This can cause friction and wear which can affect the life of the rug. A deep penetrating rug cleaning will make a tremendous improvement in the appearance of the rug and will help the fibers become softer and more vibrant.

This also is an opportune time to reverse the rug so that the traffic over it is more equal.  In cases where sun fading might be an issue, rotating the rug will help to make the sun exposure more uniform.

Of course a thorough analysis of your rug will be made while it is in our shop to see if there are any repairs that might be needed.  This is also an opportune time to assess the condition of your rug pad to see if it would be wise to replace it with a new one.

Care and maintenance of your rug will extend the life of your rug and enhance the general overall appearance.

Enjoy the coming spring,

Tom Jorjorian
