4 Reasons To Leave Pet Friendly Rug Cleaning To The Pros

4 Reasons To Leave Pet Friendly Rug Cleaning To The Pros

A rug can help make or break a room! They can assist in pulling together amazing decor to look like something straight out of a magazine, or give a reading nook a cozy, warm and comfortable feel. While we take amazing care to maintain the carpeting throughout our home, the tile, the hardwood, countertops, etc., Pet Friendly Rugs are often overlooked when it comes to daily maintenance.

However, overlooking them can be a costly mistake! Just like any other surface in your home, Pet Friendly Rugs need TLC and deep-cleaning periodically.

Here are four simple reasons to leave Pet Friendly Rug cleaning to the professionals:

Professional VS Store Rug Cleaning Products

Every Pet Friendly Rug is carefully evaluated by the technicians to determine the best cleaning technique for those particular fibers. The cleaning process is gentle and soft, and a variety of chemicals and solutions used depending on the makeup of the rug.

If you decide on the DIY (do it yourself) direction and select the wrong solution, your area rug could be permanently damaged, and in turn, your pocketbook.

Renting The Wrong Equipment

Those carpet cleaning machines you can rent at a local grocery or hardware store are not necessarily all they are cracked up to be. First of all, they could be caked with dirt, debris, and allergens from the last home in which they were used, and now that dirt is being spread throughout your home, across your rugs.

Secondly, they simply do not have the cleaning power and suction that a professional rug cleaner does. 

Being Too Rough

Yes, scrubbing too hard is a big no-no. Even though you might be trying to aggressively scrub out that red wine stain, unfortunately, you are actually probably just doing damage to the rug's fibers. A professional, or expert knows that you use a gentle, blotting action to be most effective. 

Investing Time in Something the Professionals Can Do in a Fraction of the Time

It will be more time consuming to clean a Pet Friendly Rug with a small machine than having a professional step in. If your time is valuable and your life is busy, that alone may be reason enough to pay a little more to have a professional at a wash facility, do the work for you.

Think about the time it will take to pre-treat any stains, do the actual cleaning, and wait for dry time. How much of your home would need to be off limits during the process?


There are several options to consider when shopping for a pet-friendly rug, so that's why we've eliminated the guess work and created a website full of area rugs that are designed to withstand use, and accidents, from your pets! Click here to shop!
