Leather Shag Rug Cleaning
At Kennedy Carpet we recognize that many people would like to keep their leather shag rugs clean and well maintained. There are some nuances when it comes to cleaning these luxurious rugs, for which we are quite skilled and knowledgeable.
Challenges in Leather Shag Rug Cleaning
Many people have the impression that, like any other rug or carpet, the best and the fastest way to clean a shag rug is by vacuuming it. Those that have tried this method soon regret it once they see as how fragile the fibers that the weave is made out of really are. It is actually possible to clean it using a vacuum, but it is a very painstaking process, seeing as you have to vacuum row by row in between the fibers.
Another important thing to keep in mind is that, because of its leather construction, chemical products can have a very adverse effect on it. Leather can easily break down when exposed to chemicals, especially strong ones, and chemicals can cause unsightly stains or discoloration.
Spot cleaning is still possible, but you need to be very careful not to have any of the liquids fall in between the fibers and allow them to become absorbed into the rug itself. Doing spot cleaning before working on the entire carpet itself can also be a good way to maintain it.
