There are lots of options that you have for flooring in your home. When you purchase your house you have a chance to have the flooring that you want installed. This is a great time to choose the right carpet, tile, stone or hardwood. The flooring that you choose needs to be taken care of and cleaned properly to ensure that it always looks its best. The other thing that is common in a home is to place an area rug around the house in spots that might need some color or comfort. If you choose to have hard floors around your house you might use rugs more often than a home that has carpeting. The area rugs that you have in your house need to be cleaned and maintained as well. There are things that you can do to make sure that your area rugs are cared for. Carpet Care 2000 outlines what you can do to clean and care for your area rugs.
Beat Rugs to Get Dust Out
One of the things that you want to make sure that you do is to roll up the rug in your home and take them out to so that they can be shaken off. The rugs are known to hold the debris in the fibers and that can be hard to get out. When you take the rug out you will need someone to help you so that you can hold it up and smack the back so that the debris gets pushed out. This is something that you want to make sure you do on occasion so that you can get rid of the hard to remove bits of dust and dirt.
Vacuum Dirt & Pet Hair etc from Area Rugs
The other thing that you want to do is to make sure that you have a good working vacuum. Be sure that you don’t remove the rugs and vacuum under them and then place the rugs back. It is always best to run the vacuum over the rug first to remove the dirt, dust and debris. Then you can move the rug so that you can clean the carpet or flooring under it. This will ensure that less of the debris gets on your other flooring. You also want to be sure that you take care when you run over the edges to be sure that you don’t cause any fraying to occur.
Get Old Stains Out of Area Rugs
You want to have a plan to treat any stains that might be on the rugs. They can become stained from any spills and general use. The most important thing is that you want to make sure you do a test run. This is to ensure that the colors are not being damaged when the rug is being cleaned. You want to use a mild cleaning solution that you use on a clean rag and be sure that you only dab at the spots and stains. The cleaning solution can be made at home with warm water and some mild dish soap or baking soda.
