Basic Rug Care

Basic Rug Care in Bedford

Rugs deserve the same care as wall-to-wall carpet and, in some cases, require special attention.

  • Washing rugs : To clean the smaller rugs in your Bedford home, first, you need to be sure that the label reads that your rug can be safely washed in your own washing machine. Before washing, take your rug outside, and shake it out; once you’ve thoroughly shaken out your rug, then put it in the washing machine with a mild detergent and at the recommended temperature, which is typically warm water between 90 and 105 degrees. Finally, tumble dry your rug at the lowest heat setting possible.
  • Beating larger rugs : If your larger rug is easy to pick up, shake it outside first; then put it over a railing or clothesline and beat it. Next, take the rug inside and vacuum it thoroughly. If the label recommends that your rug only be dry cleaned then save yourself time and aggravation by calling the rug cleaning professionals at Chem-Dry by Dan Derby to set up a convenient time for your rugs to be cleaned by our professionals right in the comfort of your own home. Trust your rugs of all types with the certified technician’s at Chem-Dry by Dan Derby in Bedford, TX who have been trained as Area Rug Experts for all off-site cleaning .
  • Vacuuming area rugs : Area rugs with fringe require a special cleaning technique. While using a gentle suction with your vacuum, start from the center of the rug, and vacuum toward the fringe while being careful to not catch the strands in the beater bar. Then lift the edge of the rug to vacuum underneath the fringe.
  • Caring for Oriental, Turkish or Persian rugs : Clean your valuable imported rugs according to the rug manufacturer’s specifications or bring in our professional cleaning service. When handling your rug, always be gentle with the fringe. For heirloom-type rugs, you will need our rug cleaning professionals.
