Your family room is a relaxing place for everyone to wind down and enjoy each other’s company. Your husband relaxes on the couch and watches the big screen television. You enjoy sitting in the corner nook reading and sipping on your favorite hot tea, and the children have fun playing with their trucks, dolls, crafts and other fun and exciting toys.
The only problem is that everyone likes to snack on messy and crumbly foods during this time of relaxation, and the area rug is always a mess as a result.
Maintain a Regular Cleaning Schedule
Now, this might seem like the most obvious tip; however many people still fail to perform the basic cleaning basics. When the kids spill milk or grape juice on the rug, clean it up immediately.
The longer that the mess sits on your area rug, the harder it is going to be to clean it up.
It is just a matter of having the basic cleaning products and equipment such as a good carpet cleaning machine on standby. Invest in a brush and broom that can get up the little messes that children make. Purchase spot cleanersthat can quickly take up stains and messes before they settle into your area rug permanently.
Know What Your Rug Needs
Cleaning products, equipment and instructions are based on the type of rugthat you have. A fur or sheepskin rug must be cleaned differently than an Oriental, woven or grass rug. Make sure that you read the instructions for your area rug and follow them very closely.
For instance some rugs cannot be cleaned with commercial cleaners, they need to be professionally dry-cleaned. Whereas other rugs can be cleaned with the basic over the counter cleaning solution and carpet cleaning machine. More info? Call Choicecare Carpet Care @ 912-354-3067.
