to find it but its there. Everything is the same even though its
different. Somehow everything connects back with your life. The
faces in certain places may be different, but the situation is the
same. Irony is a hidden factor that creeps around us in life,
letting its presence felt only after it has left. Picture back to a
year ago and the situation you were in. Look at how things are
different yet somehow everything it still in someway cognate.
Everything connects together to form the balance of life, to
maintain structure. Change is and always will be inevitable, but
everything is relative, and all the moments and times in your life
will come back around again, you just might find yourself on the

everything stays the same.”

Keep your rugs happy and secured
Carpet cleaning, care and maintenance have gained popularity over
the recent years. There are several carpet cleaning methods used
professionally and personally at homes by users. What matters in the
end is how frequent the cleaning is, the depth of stain and carpet
quality. Silk carpets are very sensitive. Wool on the other hand is
a rough and tough fibre. However, if the dirt is not cleaned
properly, the stain is likely to reach the fibres deep enough
causing considerable damage.
Chaudhary, Director of Jaipur Rugs Company says, “By cleaning the
carpets or rugs yourself, you can extend your carpet's life
duration. They will last long and will look cleaner for a long time.
The cleaning process starts with an awareness to prevent all those
nasty things that can cause harm to your carpet. It is advisable to
use house slippers or walking socked while stepping on your rugs or
carpets. Wearing shoes on expensive rugs are sure to bring stains,
dirt and sand particles.”
It is vital for any user to purchase a carpet cleaning equipment
such as a vacuum cleaner or a hoover for frequent removal of dust
and dirt. Stains can be removed by professional help or by using
carpet cleaning products available in the market. Some experts also
suggest carpet cleaning through home-made solutions.
Whenever professional help is sought, it is necessary to be sure of
what method is applied for cleaning. Some of the most commonly
methods used are absorbent pad cleaning and dry carpet cleaning.
Carpets can be cleaned through several ways. However, the equipment
used depends on the type of cleaning to be performed. Available ones
are steam generators, rotating brushes and single circulating
In most cases, the manufacturer of the rugs and carpets plays a
distinct role in guiding its customers to the right place. Jaipur
Rugs, a quality exporter of hand-made rugs suggests its customers
that for any carpet cleaning equipment it is important to consider
the quality of any carpet or rug. For instance, long pile shag rugs
will require a different method of cleaning than the rugs that
resemble indoor-outdoor carpet. The short pile carpet may be best
cleaned by rotating brushes while deep pile carpet may be better
cleaned using steam carpet cleaning equipment.
“Strong chemical products can be quite irritating to the nose and
the lungs. One should wear gloves and mask so that the toxic
materials do not affect much. Wearing goggles to protect eyes from
corrosive carpet cleaning chemicals can also be used. Also, while
cleaning one must remember to turn off the air conditioner and open
the room windows,” says Yogesh Chaudhary.
The bottom line is the same. Ask your vendors or suppliers about the
best method that you can apply to make your rugs happy and sparkling
clean. Moreover, first try to dig information about the type of rugs
that will suit your pocket, maintenance costs and more details of
the fibres used to make your carpet. The best deal is to know what
you are getting and the act of maintaining it.
