Cleaning carpets and rugs can be a daunting task, especially if you don't know the right techniques. But with the right knowledge and tools, you can easily and effectively clean your carpets and rugs. There are many different types of fabrics and materials, so it's important to pay close attention to the manufacturer's recommendations for deep cleaning. You can use a carpet shampoo or carpet cleaning machine for deep cleaning.
For fine, inexpensive carpets, it's worth cleaning them at home as the cost of professional cleaning can be more expensive than the carpet itself. A mild solution of dish detergent and warm water is a good choice for cleaning stains before they dry. Vacuuming isn't enough to make it really clean, so you should do a deep cleaning at least twice a year. The best time to do a deep cleaning is in spring or summer when you can take advantage of the sunlight.
If you have a large rug that's hard to move, consider buying a portable upholstery cleaner. Floor coverings exposed to outdoor shoes, spills and pets on a daily basis should be cleaned at least every two months. Knowing how to clean your carpets and rugs properly will help keep them looking great for years to come.
