Rugs can last for years provided that they are well-maintained and to do that, they have to be regularly cleaned. The first step in cleaning a rug is to vacuum it first on both sides to remove all loose dirt. Test first your rug for colorfastness using a small rug shampoo solution on a small area of the rug and find out if the colors run or not. After testing for colorfastness, wash the rug with the shampoo solution using a sponge or brush, lathering the shampoo deeply into the rug and allow the solution to sit on the rug for several minutes before rinsing. Rinse the rug well with a garden hose until all the shampoo has been cleared out. After rinsing, squeeze the water out of the rug using a squeegee and following the direction of the rug’s nap. Let the rug lay flat on a surface for drying for several minutes before flipping it over for the other side to dry or you can hang-dry the rug. By using a soft brush, loosen the fibers of the newly dried rug.
