What should I do if there is a pet accident on my rug?

If you have pets in the house, accidents are expected. The key is to know what to do in the crucial moments following your pet’s accident. 

First, focus on absorbing as much of the liquid as possible using white towels or tissue. Be sure to avoid rubbing the rug, and never reach for a conventional spot remover, which could permanently alter the colors of your rug. Finally, call your local Southside Chem-Dry experts to request specialized rug cleaning services that can effectively remove evidence of pet accidents in a gentle manner.

How can I increase the lifespan of my rug?

Rugs should be vacuumed regularly, especially if they are placed in high-traffic areas. Much of the soil that ends up between rug fibers are composed of dry particulate matter. This dirt and dust can have a sandpaper-like effect on rugs, accelerating the process of wear and tear. 

When you take the time to vacuum your rug on a regular basis, you can prevent the vulnerable fibers from being worn down by excessive amounts of dry soil and thus lengthen its life. Additionally, having your rug cleaned by Southside Chem-Dry professionals will get rid of dirt and dust beyond the reach of your vacuum, further increasing its longevity. 

How should I prepare for a rug cleaning visit?

Preparing for a visit from a Southside Chem-Dry rug cleaning expert won’t take long, but it will help expedite the process. Begin by removing clutter and any light furniture in the area, as your rug cleaner will vacuum before initiating the cleaning process. 

Then, make a mental note of any stains or flaws you want the technician to pay extra attention to. Next, if you have pets, be sure to put them in another room or in the yard so the technician can work without distractions. Finally, make a clear path from your driveway to the door and from the door to your rug to promote safe and efficient cleaning.
