Rockand County, Bergen County, and Westchester County


If you ever want to add that extra look to your home, picking out a beautiful area rug is a great way to do so. There are several types of area rugs to choose from that will bring that warmth to your home and also suits your specific tastes.

The Benefits of an Area Rug

Area rugs are flexible in their task as a piece of home decor. A subtle area rug can help to bring warmth and harmony to a room full of design flourishes. You can also choose an area rug that is a little bolder in color and design in order to create a focal point within the room. These are just the visual advantages of an area rug. Area rugs also provide extra comfort by giving hard floors a little bit of padding for your feet. They'll even offer warmth during the colder months of the year and can help to insulate a room.

Types of Area Rugs

There are several types of area rugs to choose from, but your choice will totally depend on taste and needs in terms of materials, colors, patterns and more. The following are just a few of the more popular types of area rugs that you can choose from:
Benefits: Sturdy pile, repels water and stains, good heat insulation, feels pleasant
Wool rugs are a prime choice for high traffic areas, such as living rooms and hallways, or spill-prone spaces, such as dining rooms. Wool tends to shed fuzz for a period of time. Wool rugs are not a smart choice for damp rooms because they soak up humidity.

Benefits: Extremely soft, luxurious surface, tear-resistant fibers, very fine and valuable fiber, offers a sheen
Silk rugs are an especially decadent option for a sumptuous bedroom, however, they are sensitive to moisture, generally expensive, and less sturdy than wool pile.
Benefits: Strong and stable, natural product, soft fiber, generally inexpensive
Cotton rugs are generally found in a flat weave and are a popular selection for kitchens because most smaller sizes can be easily washed. Cotton pile can sometimes become felted and tends to attracts dirt easily.
Benefits: Incredibly soft and fluffy, 100% natural material, warm
Sheepskin is often used in bedrooms—particularly nurseries and children's rooms—but are also popular in living rooms and in front of fireplaces. Besides being luxurious underfoot, sheepskin rugs can also be used as décor off the floor when draped over a chair or placed over another rug. Professional or dry cleaning is often recommended for sheepskin rugs.

Cleaning Your Area Rugs

Vacuuming is important when it comes to maintain the look of your area rug. Having your home professionally clean by URCPRO® on a regular basis is important for many reasons:

  • According to the Environmental Protection Agency, a dirty carpet can retain several sources of indoor air pollutants, including pet dander, cockroach allergens, lead, particle pollution, and everyday dirt and dust. Professional carpet and area rug cleaning services kills these bacteria through special shampooing formulas, steam and can remove deeply trapped pollutants with high-powered vacuums.
  • Many homes have dust mite infestations, yet most homeowners aren’t aware of the infestation, because the creatures are visible. Our technicians utilize a technique known as steam cleaning when performing carpet maintenance work, which exposes your carpet to high temperatures that dust mites can’t survive.
  • In areas with high humidity levels, dirty carpets are at a high risk of developing mold growth when exposed to moisture. Our high-powered drying tools will eliminate moisture to prevent mold growth that can be harmful to your health if ignored for too long.
