One of the questions we are asked every day is “How often should I have my rug cleaned?”
Oriental Rug in Kitchen
Rugs in the kitchen should be cleaned every year to remove greasy soils and food stains.
In general, having your rug cleaned every year is fine. Even if it is not badly soiled, a proper, professional cleaning will not harm it. Here are some guidelines you can follow:
CLEAN EVERY YEAR WHEN
- You have pets on the rug
- You have small children playing on the rug
- The rug is in the dining room
- The rug sits in an entry way
- The rug is in the kitchen
- The rug is in a high traffic area
Annual cleaning in these situations protects against premature wear due to gritty soil, easier removal of pet stains & odors, attends to food spots and spills in a timely manner, and helps to find & repair small damaged places before they become large and costly.
