Just like any object in your house, rugs and carpets need special attention every once in a while. One of these objects is the carpet. The rugs in your home need regular vacuuming. And by regular I mean weekly cleaning or even more often if the area is always used.
Remember, vacuuming your carpets regularly prolongs the life of your rugs, making them both nicer and better for your health.
When cleaning and vacuuming, do it thoroughly step by step so that you can cover the entire surface. You may have a little bit of work to do with plush rugs because of their thickness, but you should have thought of that when you bought them. After vacuuming, you can clean the carpets with a brush and some rug cleaning products, just to freshen up the air. Sometimes old rugs that haven’t been washed in more than six months can develop nasty odors. You can also add backing soda in the vacuum, but it may not always result in odorless breathable air.
Anyway, one thing you should probably do, every six months to a year is to give them a nice scrub. If you’re not feeling like it, than just call somebody else to clean your rugs. It doesn’t cost too much!
