We’ll ride the waves! go here!

1. Soggy No-No: Going overboard with water

The mistake of soaking your rug to make it spotless.

Real Check: Too much moisture will damage your rug’s fibers and cause it to bleed colors. It can also invite mold or mildew. You should always aim to dampen, but not wet.

2. Friction Fiasco: Scrub-a Dub Disaster

The mistake is to vigorously scrub away stubborn stains.

Reality Check: Abrasive scrubbing can damage the fabric and cause the stain. Blot gently instead. Move from the outside edges to the center of the stain.

3. Potion Problem: Overdosing on Chemicals

Mistake: Thinking that strong chemical cleaners are the answer.

Reality check: harsh chemicals can remove natural rug colors, and even damage fibers. Opt for eco-friendly, milder options. This is especially true in nature-loving Northern Beaches.

4. Universal Cleaner Myth: One size fits all?

Trap: Assuming that all rugs are cleaned by the same product.

Reality Check: Every rug is different. What may work well for a rug made from synthetic fibers, might cause havoc with a natural-fiber one. Do a test patch and always check the labels!

5. Waiting Game: A Nation of Procrastination

The mistake of letting stains dry for too long before cleaning them.

The more time a stain is left, the harder and longer it will take to get rid of. If you act quickly, you will thank yourself in the future.

6. DIY Delusion: Skip the pros

The mistake is to think that every rug problem can be solved with a simple DIY fix.

Real Check: It is sometimes better to trust the professionals, especially when dealing with antiques or expensive rugs. The professionals at Rug Cleaning Northern Beaches are equipped with the necessary tools and knowledge to properly treat your valuable rug.
