The holidays are just around the corner, and for many of us that means holiday entertaining. I love to entertain friends and family over the holidays. Every year we host three different parties. One for just our close friends and one for our family. And finally we host a New Years party with both family and friends. We always have a fabulous time. My husband and I have been hosting these parties for over a decade.
But, with a large immediate family of four kiddos, a hubby and a dog, keeping the house spotless around the holiday season is a job in itself. I’m picky about my home. I like it clean and as germ free as you can possibly get. My kids, and my hubby aren’t as picky. In fact, I don’t think they ever consider the fact that it’s a lot of work to keep a home clean. For example, we live on a farm. My husband, the kids, and the dog are constantly tracking in dirt. They seem to think because we have hard word floors throughout our house that it’s not such a big deal. They don’t wipe their feet,or remove their shoes before entering. Even when it’s raining and muddy outside. They just trample right on though.
Over the years I’ve purchased two oriental rugs and three area rugs. The oriental rugs were for decoration and the area rugs were to soak up some of the debris the family tracks in. Now in theory it was a great idea. But in reality, it didn’t work out that way. My oriental rugs has taken just as much of a beating as the area rugs. So, once a year around November I have to have them cleaned before the holiday party season starts.
Now, when the oriental rugs were still fairly new, I didn’t put much thought into who I hired to do the cleaning. As long as they were fresh and clean it’s all I really cared about. But now that they are getting older, more worn I have to put research into the company I hire to clean my oriental rugs. They are becoming delicate, spot removal isn’t as easy as it once was. And while they are not falling apart, I fear and harsh cleaning will start the “falling apart” process.
After doing some research on this nice site, you can click here for more information. I found it was important to understand how the company cleans the rugs. It’s equally important to make sure the company inspects your oriental rug before they start the clearing process. The company I hire not only inspects the rug, but they tell me exactly how they are going to clean it and why before they even begin.
If you’re looking for a company to clean your oriental rug, make sure they know what they are doing. Do your research on the company because not all rug cleaning companies are the same, and not all oriental rug cleaning companies take the same care to insure your cleaning is done properly for your particular piece.
