Expert Tips for Cleaning Rugs in Santa Cruz
Vacuum rugs regularly. 80% of soil in rugs is dry particulate matter that acts as sandpaper and wears out the rug.
Address spills and pet accidents immediately by absorbing as much of the liquid as possible. Then apply a 50-50 solution of water and vinegar and blot – do not rub – the area with white tissue or white towels. Resist the temptation to use over-the-counter spot removers. Most are too aggressive and contain some type of bleach. Also, spot removers applied directly to the rug can leave soap residue and cause rapid soiling.
