If you have not cleaned your area rugs for quite some time, then you have quite a daunting task on your hands. Area rugs cannot be treated like regular carpet, especially when it comes to a thorough cleaning. It is important to clean your rugs regularly; however the busy hustle and bustle of life can often deter our rug cleaning responsibilities. Dust mites and other allergens can slowly begin to collect within the fibers of your area rug and not only look unattractive, but also lower the quality of air that is in your home.
How to Clean an Area Rug at Home
One of the most important steps you can take when it comes to caring for your areas rugs is to vacuum them regularly. The term “regularly” can mean different things to different households. For example a home that has a lot of small children running around and a couple of four legged friends as well is more likely to accumulate dust, dirt and grime that is brought in from the outdoors and collects on the surface of your area rug. A home of empty nesters has a significantly less amount of debris coming into their home due to little foot traffic and less action going on. Vacuuming once a day is great, try to not go longer than three days max without vacuuming your area rug.
Beware of Purchasing Over the Counter Rug Cleaners
One of the biggest mistakes that people make when it comes to area rug cleaning is purchasing the wrong type of cleaner. Many over the counter cleaners will advertise that they are a “one size fits all” type of cleaner. Unfortunately people find out the hard way that this is not true. Many beautiful and expensive rugs become damaged, not from a spill or accident, but from the wrong type of cleaner being used to clean up the spill or accident. Never use an over the counter cleaner on your area rug.
