Many homes want to find ways to update a room or to add some color and vibrancy. One of the ways you can do that is to bring in some area rugs. You can get an area rug in many shapes, sizes and of course colors. They also add a layer of protection as well. You can use an area rug to place over your carpeted floors, wood floors or tile floors. When you have area rugs in your house it is important to make sure that they are taken care of and that they are cleaned. You usually make sure that your other floors are cleaned so you don’t want to overlook the area rugs. There are some tips that you can use to keep the area rugs clean.

Give Your Area Rug a Shake: One of the best things that you can do for your area rug is to take it out of the house and shake it off. The rug stays in the house and collects dirt, dust and debris and it can start to become compacted into the rug fibers. When you take it outside and shake it out you are loosening the debris and giving it a chance to fall off. The process can be difficult if you have a large rug that is under your dining table. This is a great starting point in keeping your rugs cleaned but it is not always an option.
Vacuum Area Rugs: Some people choose to run their vacuum on a weekly basis all the way up to a daily basis. The interesting thing is that they often roll up the rugs that are laid out and vacuum underneath. The problem is that the rug is there as a defense against the dirt and debris that is in the air. That means that all the mess that is coming down is landing on the rug and not the carpet or floors underneath. You want to make sure that you keep the rug in place and run the vacuum over. You need to use care when you do this so that the edges and the seams are not damaged. Vacuuming will reduce the amount of dust and dirt that is on the rug and in the fibers.
Clean Spills on Area Rugs: You also want to be sure that you are careful about spills that occur in the rugs. If you want them to look their best it is a good idea to clean spills quickly. The rug does not have many layers and that means that the spill can soak down through the rug and the floor underneath as well. Be sure that you have a cleaning technique that will not cause damage to the rug.
