In case your area rug is hand crafted then the method recommended by carpet cleaning experts is a full submerged bath and rinse. This should be done by a rug expert. They should know the kind of textile of your area rug to be able to recognize how to proceed properly. Very first thing they will do is a good agitation or beating to shed most of the debris out of the carpet before it's washed. This method is old-fashioned but still employed these days by hanging an area rug and beating it with a special metal tool. Once the majority of the fine allergens have been removed, then the process of submerging the rug in cleaning solution will begin. Through this process, you are assured that the rug will be rid of any odors, fine dirt, and it thoroughly cleans the rug. The cost of this process is by the square foot of the rug. You can take your rug to the shop or the professional will pick it up for you.
