Our Dos and Don'ts of Rug Placement in Calgary

Area rugs play a vital role in elevating the comfort, beauty, and overall appearance of our homes. Rugs often hold sentimental value as cherished possessions. Yet, it's crucial to understand how to get the longest rug life and usefulness when placing them. Matching the wrong rug to a space it doesn't enhance can fall flat when trying to make a bigger impact. Make sure your area rug makes a room or space more attractive and doesn't belong somewhere else, for example. Heirloom Rug Cleaning has area rug placement assistance to give you the greatest decorating impact. See our dos and don't of rug placement, and call us today.

Highly recommended! I had an oriental rug that had been used in a public setting for 25 years and had only ever been cleaned on-site. It wasn't needed any more so I decided to try to get it cleaned properly so I could take it home. They did a fabulous job of cleaning and repair (new fringe and binding), so worth the cost, it now looks new.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Value We had a very good experience with Greg at Heirloom Rug Cleaning. We mistakenly used an improper cleaning solution on our wool rug and he was willing to take on the job.

I absolutely loved how clean my rugs were after Heirloom Oriental Rug Cleaning had them. My two very expensive silk on silk carpets are so soft and the colours are so vibrant now!
