A rug is an expensive floor covering which protect floor from dust and soil. It absorb a heavy portion of dust particles from shoes and foot wears and our room will be dust free. By the continues absorption of dust and soil the chances of deep seated dirt in rug is very high. So it is very important to clean them when you feel it is dirty. There is a set of standard cleaning procedure for professional rug cleaning. Here I am discussing some simple steps to make sure even a regular domestic user can apply them.
The standard set of cleaning process includes the following steps:
1. Vacuum cleaning
2. Clean with pure water
3. Using the mixture of Water, Vinegar and cleansers
4. Dry Cleaning method
Most easy method of rug cleaning is vacuum cleaning. Using a proper vacuum cleaner we should clean our rugs in a regular period of time. Depends on the dust absorption we should clean them from once in a week to daily basis. For domestic users once in a week is enough to prevent the accumulation of soil and dust in rug. Rugs in office needs to be cleaned in a regular basis due to the heavy traffic. The major attraction of vacuum cleaning is that it is easier compared to other methods and there is no need of drying and removing. Also this method is Eco friendly as it does not need any kind of chemicals.
Second method of rug cleaning is washing your rugs with pure water. To remove fresh stains on it we need to wash our rug with pure water and apply a thick cloth over the stain. It is better apply some weight over the cloth and let the cloth on the stained rug for one night. Major portion of stain will be absorbed by the cloth. If the stain or dirt is so deep seated in it you may need to apply a mixture of water, vinegar and proper rug cleansers to remove it from the rug. This mixture is more effective than just washing with with pure water. To select the best cleansers for your rug you should always ask advise from a professional rug cleaner. Cleaning your rug with improper cleansers can damage your rugs so you should be very selective in picking right cleansers.
Another important cleaning method is dry cleaning. Here you should sprinkle this cleaning powder over the rug and brush it properly for one or two hour. This process will let the dry cleaning substance to soaks up stains and deep seated dust. Now you need to use vacuum cleaner to clean your rugs. You should make sure that the dry cleaning powder is removed from your rugs properly by cleaning it using vacuum cleaner.

You should always seek advice from rug cleaning experts about selecting the proper rug cleansers and dry cleaning kit for your rug. After all different rugs have different cleaning methods as prescribed by the rug manufacturer.
