While you may not have carpet in your home, chances are you have at least one area rug that could use a good cleaning from time to time. You probably vacuum the rug once a week, but unfortunately, vacuuming won’t be able to remove all of the dirt and debris that’s accumulated in your rug. There are several ways you can clean your rug - including steam cleaning.
1.Prepare the Rug
Just like you would any other carpet flooring, you’ll want to prepare the area before applying any cleaning solution or steam cleaning. First, you’ll need to move any furniture covering the rug. Then, vacuuming the rug first will help to loosen any debris that could be stuck in the fibers of your rug.
2.Tackle the Stains First
After you’ve run your vacuum over the rug several times, it’ll probably be easier to notice any stains. Whether they’re from your pet, kids, or maybe a spilled glass of wine - you’ll want to make sure these are gone before steam cleaning the rest of your rug.
3.Hire A Professional
To achieve the best results, it’s always recommended to hire a professional. Sure, you can probably rent your own steam cleaning machine from your local hardware store, but that machine can’t even compare to the machine a professional would have. However, this isn’t the only reason you should hire a professional - check out our blog post on hiring a professional vs. renting a machine!
You may feel better prepared to tackle a job like steam cleaning your rug now that you’ve learned the steps to prepare it. However, for optimal results, you’ll probably want to call a professional - their experience and their equipment is reason enough, isn’t it?
