Common Cleaning Mistakes
Having a do-it-yourself attitude is a beautiful thing, but not when it is at the expense of your rug and it ends up costing you more money in the longterm. If you are planning to go it alone, avoid these common mishaps:
When dealing with tough stains, you may think that scrubbing is the best option. While that may be true for other parts of your home, it can be detrimental to your rug. Scrubbing can cause the fibers in your carpet to tear, allowing current and future stains to run deeper, making cleaning that much more challenging. This is especially true for Persian rug cleaning because of its delicate texture.
- Time Between Cleanings
You should never allow your rug to go too long without a deep cleaning. Though dirt buildup is not always visible on the surface, chances are it’s still there. By allowing it to sit for too long, you are damaging the rug and possibly shortening its life span. You can avoid this by keeping up with maintenance.
- Not Testing Products
There is a very good reason why rug cleaning products have a disclaimer to test the product before use. There are different products for different rugs and uses. For instance, you wouldn’t use a product meant for Persian rug cleaning on an oriental rug. So before applying a product to your entire rug and potentially ruining it, you should always test the product on a small, not visible part of the rug to make sure it works.
