Ways to clean area and special type of rugs

If you need your surrounding to look the best then follow these simple guidelines for basic care, deep cleaning, stain removal and learn how to treat particular types of area rugs.

  • Vacuum large rugs to get rid of dirt. The best, way for larger area rugs is to vacuum them frequently. If a rug is reversible, vacuum both sides. This removes grit and grime that can wear out your rug impulsively. Do not vacuum the edge of your rug.
  • Sweep out pet hair. A vacuum sometimes leaves pet hair behind. Use a unbendable brush to remove the hair, comb-out in the direction of the nap of the rug.
  • Turn rugs annually. Foot traffic and sun sets extra stress on area rugs. Twirl them twice a year to level out the wear.
  • Shake tiny area rugs. If the rug is small enough, take it outside and shake it or beat it dynamically to eliminate dirt and grit. several areas have ordinances about shaking rugs in the open, check for restricted codes.

How to clean special type of rugs

Woven or braided rugs: Check rugs for edging breaks prior and after cleaning. Check labels to conclude whether small braided rugs are washable. If washable, then place them in a zippered pillowcase or mesh laundry bag. Wash with cold water on a gentle cycle, rinsing thoroughly. Tumble dry on a low setting. Place large braided rugs on a concrete floor or place an old blanket underneath. Sponge commercial carpet-cleaning foam over the plane and massage it accordingly. Finish by rinsing thoroughly and ensure its dry before replacing the rug on the floor.

Handmade, hand-knotted, historic, and Oriental rugs: Vacuum a new Oriental rug as you would do carpet and wool area rugs. Use special care for fragile antique rugs. Guard them by placing a piece of nylon screen over the rug and weighting it down with books or bricks. Vacuum over the screen. Or, tie a piece of nylon mesh over the vacuum attachment and replace the mesh regularly as dirt accumulates. Ensure that rugs are professionally cleaned at least once in a year. Rotate rugs to ensure even wear; direct exposure to sun will cause fading.

Coir, sisal and grass rugs: Rugs which are made from these natural fibers attribute an open weave that allows dirt to sift through to the floor beneath. Many of these rugs are reversible; if so, flip every time you vacuum for even wear. To sanitize stains or discolorations on a room-size natural-fiber rug, leave it in place. Guard the floor underneath with a plastic drop cloth and towel. Rub the stains with a soft brush dabbed in soapy water. Rinse with clear water. Place a towel over the wet area. Blot the cleaned spot pet dry. Use a moveable fan or hair dryer to speed drying. Move small rugs to a confined table or counter to clean. Water spoils the fibers, so work quickly and dry thoroughly to extend the life of these rugs. Some natural-fiber rugs are constructed in squares that are sewn together. Buy a little extra squares. If a rug square becomes permanently stained, clip the threads that hold it in place and swap with a new square. Hand-stitch it with heavy-duty carpet thread

Fur, sheepskin, and hair-on hides: Sprinkle unscented talcum powder on fur, sheepskin, and hair-on hide rugs and leave for some hours. Brush the talcum powder through the hair, then shake it out. Repeat this process continuously, depending on the length of the fur. To clean the back of such a rug, use a clean cotton cloth dabbed in lukewarm soapy water. Wipe off the dirt and rinse with a cloth dipped in clean water and allow it to dry completely before placing back in place.
