can you dry clean rugs?

Messes happen. Whether the mess is caused by your child spilling their juice, your pet having an accident, or someone tracking in dirt and mud, your area rugs are especially primed for the messy parts of life. While some stains are easier to clean than others, it is always advised to try to clean the mess as soon as possible. Whether it is at your home or at your business, chances are that your rugs could use a good cleaning. Keep reading to find out more about whether rugs can be dry cleaned and the benefits to cleaning your rugs on a regular basis. 

Do Dry Cleaners Clean Rugs?

Most often, dry cleaners do not offer a rug cleaning service; however, there are professional rug cleaners that can do in-home rug cleaning. If you are having your rugs cleaned professionally, ensure that the cleaner uses special cleansing solutions so that the natural dyes and materials in your rug are not compromised causing colors to bleed and fade or even breakdown of fibers. It is also recommended that you make sure the cleaning service is insured against any possible damages. 

How Often Should I Clean My Rugs?

As a general rule, it is recommended that most area rugs should be cleaned every 12-18 months. The type of rug that you have, your lifestyle, and the elements that your rugs are exposed to are all factors that may affect how often you should clean your rug. Area rugs that are located in an area with high traffic, with pets or young children, or that get walked on with shoes often may need to be cleaned more often than others. Besides having a professional rug cleaner clean your rugs quarterly, semi-annually, or annually, it is also recommended that you vacuum your rugs weekly and rotate it semi-annually. Doing so will help to prolong the rug’s initial beauty and keep it lasting longer. 

Benefits of Regular Rug Cleanings

There are several benefits to cleaning your area rugs on a regular basis. Many people find it to not only be beneficial for their home, but also for their health and peace of mind. The main benefits of cleaning your rugs regularly are:

  • A fresher smelling home. Although a clean rug does not have any odor, a dirty rug can make an entire room smell bad.
  • A longer-lasting rug. When a rug is clean and well-cared-for, they inevitably last much longer. 
  • A healthier environment. When it comes to your dirty rugs, they can be riddled with allergens, microorganisms, and bacteria. A good professional cleaning can help to remove these, leaving you with a more hygienic home.
