Question:

Can I use steam cleaning on my rug?

I bought an expensive new rug, on the tag it says professional cleaning only, could I still use my vacuum/steam cleaning vacuum?

Answer:

Most of the warnings on items that we purchase carry instructions to the extreme. This is because the average American or who ever purchases this item will assume that he knows how to use the product without reading any instructions and proceed to the next step without finding out how the item was meant to be used, in what concentrations, what to avoid doing, and the dangers incurred from misuse of the item. Since your rug was pricey, the company who produced it doesn't want it cleaned by the average Joe who might possibly ruin it, blame the company for poor quality, since it didn't live up to his idea of what a rug should look like when he was through abusing it and demand a refund. Don't snicker, it happens every day. To protect themselves, companies put extreme warnings on products hoping that an intelligent, caring individual, like yourself, will bother to read some of the instructions, however extreme, and put the product in the hands of someone who knows what they are doing - the professionals. Be gentle when you clean this carpet - you've been warned!

i'm in massachusetts. particularly recommend going to living house depot or lowes and renting a rug healthcare expert for greater or less 25 greenbacks and procuring their carpet cleansing answer for 10 greenbacks. The apartment is for twenty-four hours. it truly works. eliminates puppy smells, puppy hair, airborne dirt and dirt, espresso stains, fruit punch stains,and makes carpets (and sofas!) look form new, confident even white carpets. do no longer fall for those sears and stanley steemer categorized classified ads. they are extremely too lots funds.
