Treat stains as soon as possible after staining. The older the stain, the more difficult it will be to remove.  Some older stains cannot be removed.

Before attempting any home stain removal, always test on a small, hidden part of the rug, to make sure the dyes in the fibres will not run.

Once you are certain that you will not damage your beautiful rugs by spot cleaning, proceed carefully. 

If you are not 100% sure, or if it appears that the solutions may damage your area rug, itís time to call a professional.  Call Reliable Carpet & Upholstery Care and rely on their expertise.

DO NOT apply solvent-containing products or Dry Spot Remover to bonded rugs (that are not tufted or woven, but where the pile is bonded to the backing).  When applying Dry Spot Remover or other solvent-containing products, have the work area well ventilated.


DO NOT apply stain repellent treatments which contain any silicone because they tend to accelerate soiling. (Some rug manufacturers do not accept responsibility for complaints where such treatments have been used.)


Always pre-test a cleaning agent in an inconspicuous place, such as under a piece of furniture or in the corner of the room, to insure that it does not remove colour.

Inevitably, some dirt and grit will escape the vacuum and work its way deep into the nap of your area rug.  Every few years, a thorough and professional washing is in order.  This involves total immersion and can correctly be done only by a professional with proper cleaning and drying facilities.
