Rug cleaning rarely is a great joy. Furthermore, most of the times we have to deal with stains on our rugs or carpets, they have been caused by carelessness, often when we are in a hurry, which turns their cleaning into a really awkward experience. In this article you will be given several handy tips, which will reduce your effort and will cause a positive effect on your health, because, whether you have realized it or not, the carpets, especially the woolen ones, are very attractive for dust and the tiniest bits of dust are very hard to be extracted from them, which means that we inhale them. We shall also pay attention to the positive sides of calling the professionals, since, after all, not every household can afford professional cleaning tools and equipment.
Our first advice is to clean your carpets regularly. Keep in mind that you should (although you are not obliged, of course) vacuum them off at least 2 or three times per month. Usually it is advisory to do so at least once a week, but you may not have time for this every week. In addition to this, your free time may be occupied by cares for the children or resting. Except for cleaning them several times a month using a vacuum cleaner, you should wash them thoroughly at least two times a year. And here is when the professionals come. Using advanced and professional carpet cleaning equipment, and techniques like the dry cleaning and/or the steam cleaning, they will be able to handle even the most dirty carpets and rags in no time, which will save you much effort, nerves and money. Carpet cleaning takes between 15 and 25 minutes per carpet, depending on how dirty it is and on its size, which is much faster than you can possibly do. Furthermore, you do not have to bring you carpets and rugs to a distant place – almost all of the professional firms will visit you and will clean you carpets without even moving them from the floor.
Still, here are some tips, which will be useful for the times when you have to do the cleaning yourself.
1. Pay attention to both sides of the carpet. Yes, this may sound as a very time-consuming experience, and it is, especially if you have big carpets, but will greatly decrease the amount of dirt your carpets have collected.
2. Pay attention not to vacuum the fringes and the tassels, if there are some.
3. Apply carpet shampoos on synthetic surfaces only.
4. Quickly remove the stains immediately after they have occurred, using a dry cotton rag.
5. Apply vinegar to clean after your pets.
