Are you currently in a quandary because of a few unfortunate spills? Are you lamenting the tragic fate of a favorite carpet or rug because it's absorbed a perilous amount of coffee or red wine, and looks to be headed to the dump on Friday morning? Don't put on your black mourning gear just yet. It may still be possible to save your rug or carpet from a premature retirement!
Size Up The Situation Correctly
So how can you save the situation? The rug you're fretting over may well be a precious family heirloom handed down through several generations of the family. Alternatively, it may have been there when you first bought your home, and you're reluctant to retire it. Or, perhaps you may have recently purchased it at an oriental rug dealer for a pretty penny.
There are any number of reasons, from the sublime to the sentimental, why you may be attached to your favorite rug or carpet. Likewise, there are any number of reasons why you might be considering throwing it away after a nasty stain or spill. But first, you need to step back for a moment and analyze the situation, calmly and cooly.
Don't Turn The Job Into A D.I.Y. Disaster
First of all, is it absolutely necessary to throw your rug or carpet away? Are you absolutely sure that there is no way of saving it? Here's the rub: Just because you may not know of any effective way of rendering your rug as bright and clean as it was on the day you first bought it, it doesn't necessarily follow that no one can accomplish this job.
So, if not you, who? The answer is clear as a bell. You need to bring your rug or carpet to a cleaning professional who can handle the job in a timely and cost effective manner. There's more than one way to skin a cat, so why limit yourself to the methods you learned years ago in Home Ec class? It's time to get tough on grime.
It's Time To Call Out The Cleaning Pros
If there's no time to lose, why waste any more of it? If you've got a nasty spill or stain that needs immediate attention, you'd better call in the professionals.
