Care for Your Rugs
Area rugs can feel similar to ordinary carpets, but they’re very different. First of all, rugs usually have different fibers than what your carpets have. They often have natural materials, whereas carpets have synthetic materials. Second, the dyes in area rugs are applied differently, so they need different tests for color fastness before the cleaning process starts. Finally, area rugs often carry more sentimental value than carpets do. Many are antiques and require extra care. All of these factors add up.

As a result, area rugs require a special, careful cleaning process. Hiring the wrong cleaning company could spell disaster for your rugs. Thankfully, California Steam Clean knows exactly what to do.
