Why should I have my area and oriental rugs cleaned?
Area and oriental rugs usually receive a lot of traffic which means they trap dirt and dust within their fibers. Over time, this dulls their appearance, and the best way to renew their vibrant colors is by having them professionally cleaned. Professional cleanings ensure your area rugs last and help keep your home clean and healthy.
