April showers bring May flowers, and also signal the season that encourages clearing away dust bunnies and opening sealed windows. Right up there with switching your closets from your winter duds to spring/summer outfits, should be area rug cleaning.
The best carpet preservation tip of all is to try and keep a lot of the dirt out of your house in the first place.
Lose the Shoes
You know those “annoying” people who ask that guests remove their loafers and Louboutins before entering their homes? They probably clean their carpets less often than you do, because they limit the amount of debris brought in from the outside.
Frequent vacuuming is another way to keep grime from becoming embedded in your rugs, as is brushing your rug to remove pet hair, turning your rugs every couple of months, and giving your smaller rugs a good shake in the great outdoors.
The “Don’ts” are as Important as the “Dos”
Here are some spring cleaning tips to remember. Never have your area rugs Chem-Dry- or steam-cleaned. These procedures only clean a thin surface layer (if at all) and can cause color run, as well as damage to the fibers of your floor coverings.
Spot cleaning is also a no-no. It does not get to the source of the dirt and can worsen the problem.
