Choosing the right type of rug for your home or office can be a lot of fun, but rug cleaning is not as easy as it sounds. Often people have dug in their homes or offices that seem to get dirty very fast, but then it turns out that all they really need is a vacuum cleaner. The truth is that area carpets are much different than rugs and therefore have to be cleaned differently, too. Plus, there are just so many different kinds of area carpets from various styles and countries of origin, and all of them need a little different attention. But there are some important things that you should know about rug cleaning if you want to make sure that your rugs stay in great shape and look great all the time.
First of all, it is very important to pick the right type of rug for your room. It would be pointless to clean your velvet duchess with a feather boa as opposed to a high quality cotton duck rug. Area rugs come in many different kinds of materials, including silk, wool, jute, synthetic fibers, leather, jute, cotton, and so on. They also come in many different thicknesses, including ultra-thick, thin, medium, and thick. And don’t forget that they all need different cleaning methods. So if you think that you have a thick wool rug, then chances are that you’ll have to go to a professional rug cleaner who specialises in cleaning these kinds of rugs.
If you want to clean your rug without hiring the services of a professional rug cleaner, then you’ll have to find a way to put off cleaning your rug. One option is to try using soap and water as a solution. If you want to get rid of spills on your rug quickly, then this method will be the best option for you, but the only drawback is that hot water can cause damage to the material of your rug if you don’t do it right.
For accidents like spilled drinks or on your carpet, you can try using a mixture of vinegar and baking soda. Rubbing the area with the mixture and leaving it until dry can help you remove stains quickly. In order to clean your rug without causing any damage to the material or the fibers, you can first soak it in vinegar and water mixture and let it soak for at least one hour. Then blot the area with a paper towel or soft cloth in order to remove the stain.
Do not use the brush or vacuum cleaner when dusting your rug. Instead, you can simply take a damp woolen napkin and place it over the surface of the rug. The napkin will trap the soil and dirt particles and it will serve as a cushion for you as you move over the rug in order to avoid you getting dirt on your clothing.
These are just simple tips that you can do in order to maintain the beauty and elegance of your rugs. Area rugs should be cared for with the utmost care and attention since they are not just used as additional furniture but they also serve as living rooms or as floors. If you are going to clean them, make sure that you will be doing it by yourself because doing it with your kids may only lead you to having damaged or stained carpets. Always take extra precaution in order to keep your rug’s as beautiful as the first time you installed them in your house.
