Most people have some sort of system that they use to help keep their house clean. Clean houses bring so many different benefits that it is worth the effort required to have a system in place that they stick to. As you come up with your system it is important to think about all of the different areas of your house. Sinks, counters, mirrors, laundry, toilets, baths, showers, floors, windows, and so much more all need to be cleaned regularly. Many times as people make this list they forget at least one or two areas that need to be cleaned. One area that gets missed regularly is area rugs. Most homes have at least one area rug in them. If you do not take time to clean and maintain your area rugs they will not last for as long as they should. They will also look dingy. Today Carpet Care 2000 has some easy tips for you to take to help keep your area rugs looking fabulous.
Vacuum Area Rugs Often
First you will want to make sure that you vacuum your area rug on a regular basis. This sounds like a super simple tip but we have found over the years that this is one that is easily missed. If you have your kids doing chores and you have them vacuum the carpet you may know that you also mean rugs but your kids may not. We find this ends up being a common reason that area rugs do not get vacuumed as regularly as they should. The parents assume the kids is doing it and the kid literally has no idea that they are supposed to be doing it. Vacuuming your area rugs on a regular basis will help dirt from building up in the fibers of the rug. It will also prevent your area rug from getting frayed edges and worn edges.
Clean Up Spills on Area Rugs Right Away
Our second tip is that you should make sure that you clean up any spills on your area rugs as soon as you see them. Sometimes this gets tricky because you do not see the spill right away. Other times this is tricky because when you see the spill you simply do not have the time to sit down and clean it up properly. Avoid the urge to walk by the spill and come back to clean it up later. Clean any spills that you see as soon as you see them. If you have kids you will want to encourage them to come and tell you if there is a spill that occurred that they need help cleaning up properly. If you have a spill occur on your area rug that you do not know how to clean go and do some research online. Make sure that you know what kind of material your area rug is made out of when you search.
