Caring for Shag Rugs

Ahhh! Disaster!

Some unidentifiable, nasty-looking substance got drizzled onto your pristine shag pile rug. Is there any way on God’s green earth to get the muck out without resorting to calling in the Big Guns (that’d be us!)?

There just might be. Here’s our suggestions for rescuing your rug (and feeling awfully handy and capable in the process):

1               Moisten the stained area with a drop or two of liquid dish soap or laundry detergent mixed with a small amount of cool water (do not use warm water – it often sets the stain).

2               Rub the soapy water into the stain with a bristle brush or washcloth. Use small movements to avoid spreading the stain into other parts of the rug.

3               Allow the soap to penetrate the stain for five to ten minutes.

4               Rinse the area with cool water to remove both soap and (hopefully) emulsified stain.

5               Blot with a clean dry cloth or towel to remove excess moisture. Repeat the process if the stain hasn’t completely gone.

If even your best efforts to remove the stain fail, just give BCS a call at 801 561 1730 – we’ll be over in a jiffy to rescue your shag from impending doom!

I've used other local franchise companies in the past and the attention to detail was always lacking. BCS's attention to detail is consistently good, they show up when they say and their service is much more personal than the larger franchises. Happy with their job everytime.

I had BCS Cleaning clean my carpets while on vacation. What a nice surprise to come home to. They did a great job. I highly recommend BCS.
