Why Clean Your Rugs? Cleaner Rugs Fresher Home

Healthier Living Environment: Rugs can harbor allergens, dust mites, and other particles that affect indoor air quality. Regular cleaning helps reduce allergen levels, promoting a healthier living environment.

Prolonged Rug Lifespan: Regular maintenance, including cleaning, can extend the lifespan of your rugs, preserving their beauty for years to come.

Enhanced Appearance: A clean rug not only looks better but also contributes to the overall aesthetics of your space.

How to Clean Your Rugs 

Gather Your Supplies: You’ll need EarthSential All Purpose Cleaner, a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment, a bucket, a soft-bristle brush or mop, clean towels, and a rug beater (for larger rugs).

Vacuum Thoroughly: Start by vacuuming the rug on both sides to remove loose dirt and debris. This step is crucial as it prevents loose particles from turning into mud during the cleaning process.

Prepare the Cleaning Solution: Mix EarthSential All Purpose Cleaner with water in a bucket. Follow the recommended dilution ratios on the product label for the best results.

Test a Small Area: Before cleaning the entire rug, test the cleaning solution on a small, inconspicuous area to ensure it doesn’t cause color fading or damage.

Scrub Gently: Using a soft-bristle brush or mop, apply the cleaning solution to the rug’s surface. Work in small sections, applying gentle pressure, and avoid oversaturating the rug.

Rinse and Repeat: Rinse the rug thoroughly with clean water to remove any residual cleaner. You may need to rinse multiple times until the water runs clear.

Blot Excess Moisture: Use clean towels to blot excess moisture from the rug. Avoid wringing or twisting the rug, as this can damage the fibers.

Air Dry: Allow the rug to air dry completely. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, as this can cause fading. Flip the rug occasionally during drying to ensure even drying.
