Turn to any page in Better Homes & Gardens or to any HGTV show, and there is a good chance that you’ll see an area rug lying on the floor. While it is true that they have the ability to lighten up any room, they can be a little difficult to clean, until now. Join us today as we show you some easy tips for cleaning your area rug!
The first thing that you are going to want to do is to run a vacuum over the entire rug. By doing this, you’ll get out most of the dirt and dust particles that have been lying in the rug for a while. However, the vacuum can often leave pet hair behind, so grab yourself a stiff brush and run it over the rug to get out all the pet hair that has been trapped.
If you need to clean the rug, grab some water and a sponge and start dabbing on the rug. Be sure to hit some of the more heavily soiled areas, but do not rub the stain into the fibers—dab instead. Try not to use soap, as different rugs may respond differently to the soap—water is best as it is neutral. After you have cleaned the rug with water, leave it flat to dry. Then, feel place to put it wherever you see fit!
