TIPS

New York •  New Jersey   •  Connecticut

Here you will find tips for maintaining your wall to wall carpets, as well as tips, to deal with stains, in time of occurrence on your Area and/or Oriental rugs.
  1. Vacuum heavy traffic areas 2–3 times a week, and the rest of your carpet once a week.
  2. Use both indoor and outdoor mats at each entrance to reduce the amount of dirt tracked into your home.
  3. Over time, the protection on stain-resistant carpet wears down. For optimum performance, have a protector regularly applied after cleaning.
  4. Stain-resistant does not mean stain-proof. Be sure to act immediately to prevent spots and spills from causing permanent damage.
  5. Before using any spot removing product, test for colorfastness in an inconspicuous area.
  6. Test area rugs for colorfastness before placing over carpet since some rugs may tend to bleed.
  7. Vacuum under area rugs periodically to remove loose dirt that may have filtered through the rugs to your carpet.
  8. To avoid color transfer between furniture and flooring after a professional cleaning, leave the protective blocks in place until the carpet is completely dry (about two days).
  9. Your furniture collects everyday dirt and soil just like your carpet. For convenience, have both professionally cleaned at the same time.

“Dear Haim,
It has been so very busy here, thank God, that I never had the chance to formally thank you for the absolutely beautiful job you and your team did with our rugs and sofa. I know when a job is superior and such is the case, much to my surprise, upon entering the apartment after you completed the work.

Thank you again – you will ever be our service provider etc…“

Sunlight Customer, Oriental Rug Cleaning

A few weeks ago, I had Haim Shemesh clean my sofa & I was very pleased. He was professional, the price was reasonable & my sofa looks brand new again!

Sunlight Customer, Oriental Rug Cleaning

I had Haim Shemesh from Sunlight clean all my area rugs. He did a fabulous job! They are all handmade Orientals and he took them to a place that soaks them in a tub and hand washes them the way it’s supposed to be done. They look so much better and brighter Haim came to my apt to give me an estimate, took the rugs, then delivered them back to me a week later. He even helped me set them back up, including moving furniture around to do so. Prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend doing business with him!
