An area rug is a removable one that is often placed in drawing rooms or bedrooms to give floors cover that can add elegance and utility to a room. It sees a lot of foot traffic on a daily basis and can get dirty over time and require cleaning.
There is no doubt that if you are a proud homeowner, you will regularly vacuum this rug just as you do all other floors and carpets. But even so, they can get stained and require proper area rug cleaning service at regular intervals. This is better done outdoors, on a day when it is sunny. You will also need to set up a place where you can hang it up. A clothesline will do if your rug is not too heavy, or if it is, set up a thick rope between trees or use a fence to hang it on. Even benches will do.
Vacuum it thoroughly on both sides as it will remove any dust that is lingering. You can even hang it up and give it a good beating to remove all the dust. You then need to find the right shampoo for it which will depend on the type of material the rug is made out of. Test the shampoo on one corner of the rug, allow it to soak in, and then rinse it out and see whether it has achieved the desired cleanliness.
Now rinse the area rug with water and apply the shampoo. Work it in with a brush, so that it goes deep into the fiber of the carpet. Focus on the stains and make sure they show signs of removal.
Use the shampoo as directed by the manufacturer, as some of them may require some dilution. You will also be given directions as to how long you need to allow the shampoo to react with the dirt. After this time, you need to hose down the area rug with water and ensure that you get all the shampoo out and there is no residue.
Wring the rug, if possible, or use a squeegee to remove all the water from it. You will now have to leave it to dry for a couple of days. It is better to move the now fairly dry rug indoors, as leaving it in the sun can cause fading. It may turn stiff, but then it is just right to place it in its original location.
