.

Like wall-to-wall carpets, you should maintain the cleanliness of your rugs on a regular basis. Rugs can carry a lot of germs and bugs too. At Clean My Carpet, we also specialize in rug cleaning, and we have helped many residents in the Vaughn area. Besides giving us a call, we would like to share some simple tips with you that will enhance the beauty of your rugs.

 

Shake your rugs outside, and then clean them

The process of shaking your rugs removes many dirt particles, dust mites and other debris. Once the shaking process is over, you begin to see the difference in your rug right away. After you have shaken your carpet, you can either wet sweep it or give it a good vacuum. To wet sweep your rug, you simply sprinkle some water over it, grab a broom and sweep in the same direction under all visible dirt has gone away. The water and the bristles on your broom act as a magnet, and easily lift dirt up from off of your rug. Wet sweeping is not always as effective as vacuuming, and it also takes up more time and energy. If you want to save some time, you should invest in a high-quality vacuum. There are a high number of them available in the Vaughn area.

 

Washing Your Rugs

Before attempting to throw your rug in the washer, you must read the label. Some rugs are not machine washable, and making the mistake of washing a rug that can only be cleaned by a professional will result in excessive damage. If your rug is a decent size, and the tag reads “machine washable” follow the steps noted above (shake your rug), and then place it in the wash. The temperature at which you wash your rug is very important. You do not want the water to be too hot, or too cold. If the label does not specify the level at which you should wash your rugs, it is advised by carpet experts that you use warm water that is between 90 and 95 degrees Celsius.

You should also refrain from using cleaning liquid that is not mild, and, never ever use bleach.
