A. Yes, we encourage you to take samples home to see what they look like in your own lighting and surroundings. I never take an order from a customer until they do this. The lighting at my store is always different from your lighting at your home. We don’t need a deposit for you to take home our samples.
Q. Do you have your own carpet installers?
A. Yes we do. I am fortunate to have excellent installers. I installed for many years for Nick, my Dad, so I know the installation trade very well. Installation is the most important part of a carpet purchase. If you don’t get the carpet installed properly by experts, the investment that you’ve made may have lost it’s value already.
Some consumers put saving a few dollars at a home center ahead of dealing with a reputable company that specializes in flooring and installation. Many of these Home Centers have no idea who your installer will be. I can tell you who is coming to your house. My house crew has been with me for 24 years. I know the character of the person who is going to be in your house and how important these men are for our reputation and for repeat business.
Many of our customers ask for Terry and Gregg by name to come back to their house to install their next carpet purchase. Afterall, that's what sense of "family" is all about, right?
Q. Are there any times that you are closed for more than one day?
A. We are a family business and I run my business that way. I believe that we all need time away from work to stay healthy and happy. We close the store the week between Christmas and New Years, The first 10 days of July, Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day weekend.
Q. Why should I do business with Nick’s Rug?
A. I’ll make this answer simple. When my Dad turned over this business to me, he had a tremendous reputation for quality and taking care of his customers. To this day, we still have continued that policy. It’s the greatest feeling when people come in and say they are here because of our reputation and because of the good things that they have heard about us. I love coming to work and the feeling the pride that goes with striving to keep the reputation that my Dad achieved and seeing satisfied customers, most of whom I know by their first names.
When carpets are cleaned improperly with wet methods, split seams, shrinkage, mildew, delamination, color fading, and other problems can result from over wetting and often the carpet becomes dingy and dull. The dry extraction method utilized by Nick’s Rug Co., Inc. can restore color and brightness and your carpets will look and feel fresh because the Host machine lifts up matted and twisted carpet fibers.
The Host cleaning method is recommended by carpet and fiber manufacturers who actually test this method. Among carpet manufacturers recognizing the superior Host method are Karastan, Shaw, Mohawk, Dan River, Fabrica, Lees, Stratton, and Interface. Fiber manufacturers include DuPont, Allied and Monsanto.
The Host method is a dry process which has five steps:
First the area to be cleaned is vacumed thoroughly.
Second, (if needed) the heavily soiled areas are misted with a prep solution. This breaks the oily bond that holds dirt to the fibers and the solution dries instantly.
Next a dry extraction cleaner (host) is scattered over the area to be cleaned. This compound is then brushed through the carpet with the Host machine. The machine is equipped with two self cleaning nylon bristle brushes that move with an uplifting action to revive and restore matted carpet fibers. This brushing action produces thorough and even results on all surfaces of the yarns. The machine is easily adjusted to clean stairs. Since the compound is dry, you never have to worry about the soil draining to the bottom of the carpet.
The Host compound (or sponges) dissolves and absorbs the soil. A built in deodorizer reduces odors, it doesn’t just mask them. There is no extra charge for the deodorizer because it is part of the compound.
The last and final step is a thorough vacuuming to extract the sponges and the embedded dirt it has absorbed. No soiling residues ever remain and spots won’t return several days later as is often the case with the wet cleaning methods.

We also specialize in cleaning your carpets usine the Host Dry Extraction Carpet Cleaning System was developed to clean carpets the way they should be cleaned. Very simply, this means removing the soil.
Host Dry Cleaner dissolves and absorbs deep down soil and spots. The brushing action of the Host machines works the cleaner through the carpet while lifting and straightening the pile. This makes it easier to vacume the dissolved dirt, greases, sugars, syrups and other spots that wet methods often fail to remove completely and provides immediate and visible results.
HOST Dry Carpet Cleaner meets Green Seal’s environmental standard for industrial cleaners based on its reduced human and aquatic toxicity and reduced smog production potential.
