Clean your Rugs and get them ready for Holiday Traffic

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips

Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away, have you checked the rugs in your home? Remember, your rugs will be seen by guests and will have an influx of foot traffic come the week of Thanksgiving. Now is a great time to start cleaning your rugs before the holiday rush.

Since there are various types of rugs made from a variety of materials, it is important that you check the rug’s care tag before you begin any sort of cleaning regimen. You do not want to attempt to clean the rug yourself if the care tag says that it must be dry-cleaned.

You can easily shake your small rugs outside in order to get rid of loose dirt. Its best to wash them in cold water inside a mesh laundry bag or pillowcase with zip. However, if you have a large rug,stick with the care instructions on the tag.

To dry your rugs, either hang them on your porch or patio, or on a clothes-drying rack. Then use a stiff brush and rub in a strong manner to remove any tiny irritates like hair strands that may have accumulated in the rug.

Are your rugs still looking horrible after you’ve washed them?  That means it is time to get them replaced. If you live in the St. Louis area and need new custom rugs, visit Ambassador Floor Company or give us a call at 636-728-1600.
