I Heard: Viscose Rugs and I RAN the other way!

Monday, August 30th, 2010

I receive calls everyday from new and repeat clients who call to discuss their rug cleaning needs. They ask about cleaning oriental, persian and afghan area rugs in Las Cruces. Rug cleaning requires special skills, techniques and vast cleaning knowledge from professionals specializing in this craft to be performed safely. Hand woven rugs can vary in cost from very expensive (some as much as a nice mid-size car) to more reasonable priced pieces. There are some local retailers in Las Cruces that offer reasonably priced rugs that look wonderful and if taken care of properly will last a long time.

Consumers should always be weary of discount rug dealers. These rugs are cheaper than the expensive rugs, but be aware that they can have issues with cleaning and service. Before purchasing a rug you should make sure it will pass the test of time. Here is an article, written by Lisa Wagner, on one of the types of Rugs To Run From: Viscose Rugs!

I hope this information provides confidence in choosing a great hand woven oriental, persian or afghan area rug.

Confidential Interview Las Cruces Carpet Cleaners DREAD You’ll Hear

Friday, August 27th, 2010

These Las Cruces residents thought they were getting a great deal when they hired a local carpet cleaner recommended by his sister. Little did he know that the man they hired didn’t know how to fix heavily soiled traffic lanes and dark spot on their carpet. And if that isn’t enough, the man convinced them that it was their fault the soil had permanently stained their carpet.

This sort of thing happens all the time. When a technician reaches the end of his or her skill, it becomes easier to blame the carpet rather than to admit they do not know what to do.

Fortunately, it’s easy to spot these shady characters that continiously give the carpet cleaning industry a black eye. Simply ask for a ‘Guarantee’ and see what happens when you mention the “G” word. Take it a step further and ask for a ‘written guarantee’ and see what happens. A technician that does not know what they are doing cannot guarantee their work! It’s that simple.

Las Cruces residents and the couple in this video can rest at ease knowing there is one IICRC Certified Master Textile Cleaner serving our city. It takes years of education/training and experience before anyone is awarded this prestigious title. In order to be awarded this status, they must be certified in carpet cleaning, upholstery cleaning, color repair, odor repair, carpet repair, water damange restoration, and advanced structural drying (ASD) and have a minimum of 6 years experience in the carpet cleaning industry.

Las Cruces Carpet Cleaning – FiberCare picked up the ball where the other company dropped it and was able to clean the heavily soiled spots and traffic lane believed to be permanent. They’ve set the new standard for carpet cleaners in Las Cruces and more importantly raised the level of quality consumers expect.
