When you have an area rug that is in need of a professional cleaning, you will have two basic options available to you. First, you could send it out to a cleaning company. The company would usually come to your home to pick up the rug. They will roll the rug properly and then carefully remove it from your home and bring it to the cleaning center.
The second option is to hire a professional cleaning company to come to your home and clean the rug in place. Either option will get similar results, as long as the company you hire has the experience and equipment to do the job right. If the company doesn’t have the proper equipment to clean area rugs, or they don’t have experience, then you might find that the rug doesn’t come out as clean as you expected.
There is no right or wrong answer when it comes to cleaning area rugs, but for the majority of Toronto residents, they prefer to have their rug cleaned in place. This is more often due to the preference to keep the rug where it is.
When you can maintain the area rug in place, you will likely feel more comfortable and confident that it is being cared for properly. When you send something like an area rug out to be cleaned, you won’t know who is cleaning it, what chemicals are being used on it, or that it’s being cleaned properly.
Certain carpet cleaning companies, such as Royal Interior Cleaners, have a vast amount of experience cleaning area rugs, including delicate Persian rugs. It’s a slightly different process to clean an area rug than a wall-to-wall carpet so you should have experts who have years of experience with these types of jobs.
The cost differential between cleaning your area rugs in place or having them sent out is negligible. Choose the option that is most comfortable for you and within a matter of days or weeks you will be enjoying your wonderfully clean rugs once again.
