How to Clean Oriental Rugs and Carpets

The best way to keep a rug clean is to keep it from getting dirty in the first place. Removing outdoor shoes when entering the house (as people do in most rug-weaving countries) is a good idea if this accords with your lifestyle.

Fiber Care & The Cleaning Company

Fabric Protection & Cleaning Services for Upholstery, Draperies, Rugs and Carpet. CALL (214) 987-4111

FiberCare is an invisible, long-lasting finish that protects against spots, stains and spills. FiberCare works by impregnating fibers with co-polymer resins in a mineral spirit base. This means dust and dirt can’t get trapped within the fiber. Spills can be easily blotted up, dirt and grit can be more effectively removed by vacuuming or damp dusting, thereby, increasing fiber life. FiberCare can be applied to all fibers, new and old, even those that have been temporarily protected with mill level finishes such as Scotchguard or Teflon. FiberCare protects against both oil-base and water-base stains…

Very Dirty Carpet Cleaner Solution Review

This carpet cleaner was great. No discoloration, no sticky feeling on your feet after its been cleaned, no sticky feeling when pouring it. No awful, toxic chemical smell, just a nice fresh scent and powerful cleaning abilities. I tried it, as directions said, with 1 oz per 1 gallon of water and used my upright steam cleaning carpet shampooer. You could see the difference after one go over, and more so when I was finished. My carpet is cleaner than it has been in a long time. I really like this cleaner. It got my Very Dirty Carpets clean again!
