Rug Cleaners Ogden
Area rugs are a great addition to any room whether it be to add style to your space or you want a soft carpet floor without changing the actual flooring. Area rugs offer a vast variety of different looks that are easily interchangeable as your style changes. When placed with the correct padding for the floor type, rugs can be placed anywhere. This is the easiest way to a DIY room renovation. Outdoor rugs have also been a common thing, having a nice rug on a covered porch or patio can make you feel like you have added on a whole new room to your home.
How to Care for your Rug
As easy as it is to brighten up a room with a new look by adding a rug they do need to be maintained properly. Much like your carpet your rug will collect dirt, dust, allergens and many other particles found in the air. Making sure you frequently vacuum your rug along with the carpet in your home will improve the length of your rug and carpets. It is also recommended to get your carpets cleaned annually, this recommendation is also true for the Rugs in your home. Now with rugs there is a little more maintenance when it comes to taking the best care. Area rugs have the ability to be moved, unlike the carpet in your room. Making sure to rotate your rugs much like you would rotate your mattress, will help to reduce in fading in one area due to sun or light exposure, and high traffic areas. Making sure the type of ware on your rug is dispersed evenly will increase the longevity of your rug. When you vacuum your rug make sure to remove and and all furnature from its surface so you can completely vacuum the entire surface. After the top facing side had been vacuumed make sure to flip your rug over and vacuum or sweep underneath. Then flip it over and vacuum the back half. After you have finished this process rotate it and place it where you would like in the room. Before moving your furniture back vacuum over the top one last time. All that flipping and moving most likely loosened up some of the stuck dirt and dust deep in the rugs fabrics. One other thing to keep in mind is not to vacuum over any fringe in your rug, doing so may result in a larger fray and quite the annoying task of getting that string unstuck from your vacuum. Now all this may seem like a lot of work, and quite frankly you never saw your grandmother vacuum her rug, she beat it. Maybe you never saw the olden days rug cleaning first hand or in the movies so ill explain it. Back in the day the (typically women) person cleaning the rug would hang it out back on the cloths line and beat it with a bat. Yes, this process would allow the rug to release a lot of the built up dirt, dust and allergens. However, this process would also loosed the fibers in the fabric along with separating the rug from its backing over time. The more poorly the rug was made the faster this would happen. When this happens your rug is no longer useable, so it is not going to be a good idea.
Rug stain removal
Having to clean a spill or a stain on a rug can have its benefits. What is the number one thing that is so frustrating about spills on your carpet? Well I don’t know for sure about you, but for me it’s the fact that lets say the dog decided to mark his territory on your carpet. Sure you can get a dry towel and soak up what you can then get to the rewetting it and scrubbing the carpet to try and clean the spot and soak up the soap you just put in the carpet. Now here is the main concern, the PAD. Yes you may have successfully cleaned the carpet, but what remains underneath in the padding and below that? I have obviously dealt with this issue more times than I would like to admit. That is why undoubtedly it is important to get your carpets not only cleaned but STEAM EXTRACTED. Now back to the spill on your rug. On the up side underneath your rug is accessible on the down side rugs are more delicate so you need to make sure you fallow the careful rug cleaning steps.
How to spot clean a rug
Wen you get a spill on your rug you want to immediately care for the stain, the sooner it is cleaned the better the chances are of it coming clean. Take a dry towel and place it on top of the spot and try to absorb what you can. Take a second dry towel and place it under the rug to absorb what has already soaked through. If there was a lot of liquid in the stain/spill, once you have absorbed what you can remove the wet cloths and replace them with dry ones. Use water, mineral water, or club soda to absorb the stain, try not so scrub the area but to pat and press the spot. If it is a tough stain you can try using watered down dish soap to help remove the stain, but do not use shampoos or carpet cleaners. Rugs are a lot more sensitive and these chemicals could damage the fabrics in the rug.
