How to Clean a Rug

Rugs can be a beautiful addition to your home, and even when placed in high traffic areas are easy to clean and maintain with a few simple tips.

First, in order keep your rug in good shape make sure to vacuum it weekly. If the rug is handmade, or made from a fragile material like wool, use only suction-style vacuums to avoid damaging the material. At least once per month, you should turn your rug over and thoroughly vacuum the underside as well. Many rugs are ornamented with decorative tassels or fringe, so be sure to steer clear of these areas when vacuuming or you risk creating a huge tangled mess.

Should an accidental spill occur, you'll want to attend to it as quickly as possible. You'll want to soak up the liquid as quickly as possible, and be sure to use a clean white towel to avoid problems with the rug's dye bleeding out into adjacent colors. Blot up the excess liquid beginning at the outer edges and working towards the center of wet area. Be sure not to scrub the rug in a circular pattern as this will add to the area of the stain and often causes permanent damage to the fabric.

For stains that have set in, you'll need to use a specialized shampoo or cleaner. Be sure to double check the label on the bottle to make sure it's appropriate for your specific rug, as many cleaners are designed specifically for use with carpets and can damage a fragile rug. Test the colorfastness of your rug by only applying the cleaner in a small spot before spreading it around. Also, after shampooing, be sure to thoroughly rinse your cleaned area so that the residue from the cleaner doesn't attract additional dirt.

Some types of stains have specific tricks associated with their successful removal. If you've spilled milk, the sour odor will persist strongly, but treating it thoroughly with a combination of water and detergent will save your rug and your nose. Stains from red wine, grape juice, or other colored fruit drinks are most easily removed by using an equal blend of 10% hydrogen peroxide and liquid dish soap. To eliminate pet odor, whether from territorial spraying or simply from an accident, use a blend of one part vinegar to three parts water (the scent of the vinegar will help deter future accidents too). If stubborn stains persist, it may be time to call in the professionals.
