How has man's best friend treated your area rugs?

Man's best friend can be hard to love at times. While our pets can be great companions, they can have some accidents along the way. These accidents can happen on our expensive floor coverings like our area rugs. When this occurs it's important to blot up the area immediately. How to blot? I would get a roll of paper towels and a garbage can. Fold the towels and place them on the effected area. Stand on the towels and allow the moisture to go into the towel. When towels have absorbed the liquid - throw the towels into the garbage can. Keep repeating until the towels are dry. Then I would use a solution of a tablespoon of dish soap into a glass of water. apply the solution to the affected area. let sit for a little bit and then repeat the blotting.

If this does not help then the area rug will have to be taken in to a professional who does a soaking process. This process gives a thorough rinsing and cleaning. It is a more expensive process so the worth of the rug is important. This process while not guaranteed has been proven to be quite effective.

Rug Dusting can preserve your rugs and make them last longer

In Plant rug cleaning is the best way to clean your rugs. Cleaning your area rugs on the floor in your home is just not the most professional way to clean them. The care that rugs need cannot be applied in the home. Rug cleaning should be a multi step process. A true rug cleaning multi step process needs to include rug dusting. Dry soil removal is a very important part of the rug cleaning process.

Dirt gets trapped in the backing of wool rugs. Wool under the microscope is a very jagged fiber. Wool is not a smooth fiber like nylon. The jagged part of the fiber can help keep dirt trapped in the rug. Your regular vacuuming can have a hard time getting the dirt out of a rug. A professional process is what it takes.

If you don't get the dry soil out of your rug that soil can damage your rug by cutting the fibers like little knives and allowing dirt to fill in to the inner portion of the fibers. The more the dirt fills into the inner portion of the fiber the harder the rug is to clean and the sooner the rug can ugly out.
