If you own a rug then there is a good chance that you will have to clean it from time to time, and rug wash is a mandatory part of keeping your rug clean. If you don’t clean your rug regularly then the dirt will build up in the pile and the colour will start to fade. It doesn’t take much time to clean your rug, but it does require some work. If your rug is not regularly cleaned then it’s likely that it will develop holes and stains and if this happens you can end up spending a lot of money having it professionally cleaned. Read on to find out more about how to do rug wash yourself.
Before you get started with rug wash it’s best to think about what you’re going to need to do. You obviously need to purchase the machine and a few brushes. Then you will need to gather up your materials. If you’re doing it at home then you can gather them together but if you’re at a local rug store you may need to buy it already assembled. It is best to buy it assembled so that you can easily get all the parts.
Now you’re ready to get started with rug wash. Start by getting the machine and all the brushes that you need. Fill up the tub with warm water and turn on the machine. Set the machine to the small agitate cycle and give it a try to see how much water it will pull out. If you find that it’s taking a lot of water to remove the dirt then you need to go with another cycle.
When the agitate cycle starts giving your rug a quick wet rub with the napkin or sponge. You don’t want to rub too hard as you’ll only be rinsing away the dirt. Continue to do this until you feel that the rug is clean and there is no sign of dirt. Let the rug to dry for a day or so before you run a vacuum over it. It’s a good idea to dust your rug before you clean it so that you have an even easier time cleaning it.
Now it’s time to wash the stain. Pour some warm water over the stain and start brushing. The brush doesn’t have to be pushed through the stain. Just keep going back and forth and it will work its way right out.
Rinse and then dry to make sure that the stain is completely gone. This is a very easy process if you know what you are doing. Remember, don’t put a lot of force on the rug as this could cause damage or possibly even cause the stain to become worse. By following these simple steps you can easily take care of a dirty rug in little time.
