Tips For Cleaning Area Rugs From The Rug Wash , Georgetown, Kentucky

Area rugs in sizes large and small can be added to a room for layers of texture, to add character to a design theme, provide pops of color, or just to insulate and add warmth. However, just like any flooring, area rugs are under foot all the time, meaning they need to be well cared for, which can intimidate some buyers who may otherwise be interested in adding an area rug to a room. Fortunately, caring for rugs isn’t at all difficult! Just follow these easy tips from The Rug Wash, a professional rug cleaner in Georgetown with almost 30 years of experience in carpet cleaning services, rug repair, and antique rug cleaning.


First, vacuum to remove tracked-in dirt and grime that can wear out a rug (but make sure not to vacuum any fringe on the edges of the rug). If the rug is reversible, vacuum both sides. Next, use a stiff brush to remove pet hair by brushing in the direction of the nap of the rug. Brushing often works better than just vacuuming alone, as pet hair can be particularly stubborn. Smaller area rugs can be taken outside to get shaken or beaten robustly. Lastly, turn rugs once or twice a year to even the wear that foot traffic and UV rays can put on the materials.

Following these steps consistently and regularly will not only extend the life of an area rug, but it will also keep dirt and grime from getting tracked into the house.
