Daly City Basic Rug Care

Rugs deserve the same care as wall-to-wall carpet and, in some cases, require special attention.

  • Washing rugs : Smaller rugs can usually be washed in your own washing machine, but be sure that the tag specifies that it is able to be safely  “machine washable”. Before cleaning it, shake the rug outside first, then wash with a mild detergent and at the recommended temperature, which is typically warm water between 90 and 105 degrees. Finally, tumble dry your rug at the lowest heat setting possible.
  • Beating larger rugs : If your larger rug is easy to pick up, shake it outside first; then put it over a railing or clothesline and beat it out thoroughly. Next, take the rug inside and vacuum it. If the label recommends that the rug only be dry cleaned, then save yourself time and frustration by calling the rug cleaning professionals at B & G Chem-Dry in Daly City, because you can trust your rugs of all types with technicians from B & G Chem-Dry in Daly City, CA who have been trained as Area Rug Experts for off-site cleaning .
