Shake your rugs outside, and then clean them
The process of shaking your rugs removes 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 mop your carpet, you need to sprinkle some water over it, grab a broom and sweep in the same direction under all visible dirt has gone away. Water and the bristles on your broomstick act as a magnet and lift dirt off your rug easily. 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 rugs that can only be cleaned by a professional can cause 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 rugs is very crucial. 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 a cleaning liquid that is not mild and never use bleach.
