How Often Do You Really Need to Hire an Area Rug Cleaning Company?

As professional Oriental rug cleaning pros serving Lancaster, Reading and Berks county, Montgomery county, York county, Chester County and Main Line areas, Delaware county and Bucks county in Southeastern Pennsylvania,  Chem-Dry by the Millers often Gets asked this question.

Many cleaners and online reviews will say at least twice a year, but for some area rugs in certain homes this might not be enough.
Here are a few factors to consider when asking yourself this question:
Which type of pets live in your home? Apart from bringing in dirt from outside, pets also shed hair and excrete oils. They are messy eaters and drinkers and often choose rugs and carpeted areas for their napping spots. The more pets you have and the larger they are, the more often you will have to clean your Oriental rugs.
How many people live in the house? A large amount of traffic amounts to a large amount of dirt. People shed hair and skin cells and, if they don’t take off their shoes when entering the house, they will also bring in a lot of dirt.
Does any member of your family suffer from allergies? Clean rugs and carpets reduce the allergens in your home. Pollen gets carried in by pets and people and if you live in a humid environment mold and other fungi can often be found growing on your rugs and carpets. Have your rugs and carpets regularly cleaned to avoid these allergens from building up to a point where they start affecting your health.
 Does your rug have a warranty and what does the warranty require? Some area rugs (especially expensive ones) come with a warranty and strict instructions on how many times they must be cleaned. Make sure you follow these instructions to ensure that you don’t forfeit the warranty.
