How Often Should I Clean My Rug?

A good rule of thumb is to get your rug cleaned every 6-12 months (depending on traffic, pets, and style of rug) as to avoid any permanent damage. Many times, clients wait until they visually see a rug dirty before they decide to get it cleaned. Even if a rug doesn’t look dirty, you should have it professionally cleaned. Vacuuming removes most top soils from the rug's surface but cannot reach the bottom. Millions of microscopic dust particles, soil, and bacteria settle at the bottom of the rug, which then starts causing damage from within. Think of it as sand between your fingers. It acts as sandpaper rubbing and grinding away at the fibers' base. You can always email us with pictures of your rug so we can quickly identify it as handmade, machine-made, or synthetic.  This will help you further understand what your rug needs are and what we can do to give it the proper cleaning.

Wool Wisdom

Wool Carpet

One of the most crucial areas of carpet maintenance is removal of spots and spills. Acting quickly when anything is dropped or spilled, and always having the necessary cleaning materials at hand are of the utmost importance. We recommend a “WoolClean Spot Removal Kit,” which can be purchased from a Wools of New Zealand Partner Retailer. Call 800-367-0462 or check the Wools website at www.woolsnz.com for the Partner Retailer nearest you.

Frequent vacuuming is a wool carpet’s best friend.

  • An upright vacuum with a beater bar/brush is the best type for cut pile carpet.
  • A suction-only vacuum may be required for loop pile Berber carpets to prevent excessive fuzzing.
  • Vacuum cleaner dust bag should be emptied when half full.
  • Exercise prevention maintenance by placing absorbent mats at the most frequently used entrances to your home.
  • Change or launder when these mats become dirty. Filters in your heating and air conditioning systems should be changed regularly.
  • Periodically clean traffic lanes and the areas in front of frequently used chairs with an absorbent powder (such as Host®, Dri-Matic® or Capture®).
  • Keep absorbent cloth or paper towels and cleaning solutions on hand for quick response to spills and accidents.
  • DO NOT apply stain repellent treatments which contain any silicone as they tend to accelerate carpet soiling. (Some carpet manufacturers do not accept responsibility for complaints where such treatments have been used.)
  • When having your wool carpet professionally cleaned, use a “WoolCare Specialist” certified by Restoration Industry Association.

Stop Dirt at the Door

Welcome Mat

Preventing dirt and grime from getting on the carpet in the first place is a great way to start keeping it clean. 

The following helpful hints can stop dirt in its tracks.

  • Use mats — Outdoor and indoor mats or runners can reduce the amount of dirt that enters the house.
  • Take off your shoes — You can save wear and tear on carpet by asking everyone to take their shoes off before entering your home.
  • Change your air filters — Change air filters in your heating and air-conditioning systems as recommended by the manufacturer’s directions. 
  • The more dust and particles removed by the filter, the fewer that fall onto the carpet.

Van’s just came over to stretch and clean my bedroom rug. I had tried another company three times and they never responded. The day I emailed Van’s, Ivy called me and was very nice and set up a time to have an estimate done. The gentleman came the next day and was very pleasant. They actually came out on the 24th and did the work. The service tech was professional in every way and did a fantastic job on both the stretching of the rug and the shampooing. Service is everything to me and this company was all about customer service. Thank you......
