How to Clean an Area Rug

When you have beautiful area rugs decorating your home, you will want to keep them looking their best. In order to do that, proper cleaning and maintenance must be done for your area rugs periodically in order to keep them looking new.

When you want to prevent dirt from building up on your area rugs, you will want to vacuum the rug regularly. Sweeping the rug once a week with a vacuum is sufficient in keeping the dirt and dust from building up to a noticeable degree. This will also help your home stay allergy free for those friends and family members who could have allergy flares due to dust and dirt.

Make sure to take care of your rug by watching for an frazzled ends on the area rug. Getting these loose ends caught in the vacuum could easily snag your rug and unravel it further. When you see a frazzled end to your area rug, never pull on it. If your rug does have a blemish like this, you will want to work around the spot when cleaning it so that it does not get any worse. You could also find a professional to repair it.

If you get any spills on your area rugs, you will want to blot the spill quickly with either a white cloth or a white hand towel. Make sure to apply small amounts of water when you blot out the stain so that it will loosen up from the rug fibers. If it becomes a set in stain, you can use solvents and cleaners to get out anything that is left.

Those who are wary of dangerous chemicals can use a simple cleaning solution on their area rugs. If you have a rug that have multiple colors, you can mix lemon juice and bleach (without chlorine). Hydrogen peroxide should be avoided if you have fragile area rugs.

Remember that maintenance is key to a clean rug, so you will want to get all of your area rugs professionally cleaned at least once a year, even if there are no visible stains or dirt. And it is recommended that a professional do the cleaning because doing it on your own can lead to damage to your rugs from too much water, too much shampooing, or dragging your furniture over the rug before it is completely dry.

If you do decide to clean the rug yourself, you will need to vacuum first. This will pick up any loose dirt that may be on the rug, and it will prevent the shampoo and cleaning solutions from working on this dirt instead of the dirt and dust that is inside the rug.

After you have cleaned your area rug, make sure to rotate it from its original position. Keeping an area rug in a high traffic area will allow it to wear out on one side and not the other if you do not rotate it. This will keep your rug looking fresh and new.

How to Choose a Great Area Rug

There are many places in a home that can benefit from the use of an area rug. Typically, area rugs are used for style and design, but they also serve a function as well. Not only can they add a style element to the room, but they can also protect your floors from dust, dirt, and scuffing from high volumes of traffic. What you will want to consider when you purchase and area rug for your home is the size, style, color, texture and function. You will want to look at the area where you want to put it and get a complimentary rug. It is easy to choose a great area rug if you are prepared before you shop for on.

First, you will want to look at your home, particularly the room where the rug will be. Determine the size of the rug that you need. Are you looking to just put It under the furniture in the middle of the room? Or do you want the rug to stand out from the furniture in front of it? If there will be a lot of foot traffic, a wool rug will stand up better than many other styles.

Next, you will want to measure the floor space where you want to lay the rug. This is important so that you do not buy the wrong size of rug and have to return it. When you go to the store, look for the right style. An oriental rug tends to accent expensive furnishings and antiques best. And if you are looking for a more functional area rug for a playroom or other family area, durability should outweigh the style of the rug, but you can still get a great style even with good functionality. If you are getting a rug for a room that is already decorated, you will want to get a color that will compliment the décor of the room.

In order to get the best color, you will want to pick out three of the major colors in the room and then look at a color wheel. This is a chart that will show you what colors compliment others. Choose a complimentary color for one of the three major colors in order to make your room more aesthetically pleasing. If you will be walking barefoot on the rug, texture is very important. High traffic areas will usually need a texture like Berber, and those rugs that will not see a lot of traffic will benefit from Saxony that is velvety and soft. But remember—Saxony will leave vacuum marks on the rug.

Area rugs are important for the style of the room, but if you are looking to collection area rugs, you will want to be more careful in your purchasing decisions. You will to get rugs that have denser knots, ones that were hand dyed, or hand stitched. This will raise the value of the rug as well as giving your home a little bit of expensive style.
