Area Rug Cleaning Tips

There are no exceptions to this necessity with the carpet in your home. Dust, animals, dirt, moisture, spills, sand and pedestrian traffic all affect the appearance and condition of your carpet. We will discuss some of the useful area rug cleaning tips by expert area carpet cleaning firms to preserve the life of your floor coverings.

Utilizing Area Rug Pads

Use the right pad, whether you're talking about rugs or wall-to-wall carpeting.

Turn Your Area Rugs

At least once a year, rotate your rug to ensure even wear. Sunshine can cause fading carpets and pedestrian traffic causes important to wear and tear on the carpet.

Frequent vacuum

Ingrained dirt and sand act as abrasives and can break down the fibres of your carpet with the help of foot traffic. Your carpets should be vacuumed at least once a month. If you have a wool carpet, it's okay to use a beater bar/brush spinning vacuum on the back of the carpet. 

Act Fast When a Spill Occurs

If the spot is a liquid, blot out using a dry, clean cotton cloth by pressing down on the outside of the spill, pressed into the middle. Repeat this numerous times, folding the towels to obtain a clean section where you can continue blotting until you have absorbed as much moisture as possible.

Be Wary Carpet Shampoo

While shampoos and sprays can be very helpful in your home, do not realize that these solvents may fade or damage the particular carpet. Be sure to read the product label before applying a cleanser or shampoo spot, and be sure to rinse the product from your carpet after use.

Rolls of carpet When Moving or Saving

Note that the carpet should always be rolled up, never folded. When transporting, put your carpet rolled on top of furniture that does not destroy or damage.
