- Area Rugs
A cushy soft white rug is impossible to resist. A white rug can add warmth, texture, and elegance to your white room design. Keep your classic white rug looking crisp and clean by properly maintaining and cleaning your rug regularly.
Knowing how to maintain a white area rug is more important than knowing how to clean it once it’s dirty. Follow these tips on how to keep a white area rug clean:
Vacuum your white rug thoroughly starting with the back of the rug. Vacuuming the back of the rug (with the beater brush engaged) helps to loosen dirt within the rug fibers. If you have a shag rug or fibers longer than ¾”, disable the beater brush while you vacuum. Also, avoid vacuuming fringe and knots with the beater brush. Any long fibers can be vacuumed using the upholstery attachment.
Looking to revitalize and freshen your rug? Baking soda is a great natural, odor absorber. Sprinkle a little bit of baking soda on your rug, let it sit for a few hours or overnight and vacuum it up.
If your white area rug only has a few areas that need to be cleaned, spot cleaning can do the trick.
Rugs live on the floor which make dirt and stains inevitable. Follow these steps to get your white carpet white again:
Allow your rug to dry completely before putting it back in place. It’s best to hang or elevate your white area rug in some way so that air can circulate ensuring that your dries completely.
For pesky stains, we recommend having your white area rug professionally cleaned.
