How to Clean Your Childrens Rug
Regular cleaning and maintenance of your new childrens rug is essential if you want to keep it looking like new. With regular cleaning of spills and dirt your childrens rugs can last a lifetime. Take a look at our helpful tips on how to keep your childrens rug looking like new.
Regular Care of Your Rug
It is important to regularly vacuum your childrens rug at least once a week to prevent the build up of dirt and grit accumulating in the pile and damaging the fibres.
If your childrens rug has fringes or tassles DO NOT vacuum these as they may unravel.
All wool rugs will regularly shed fibre. However if you find a longer stray fibre attached to your rug DO NOT pull it as this can lead to more damage. Simply trim it down to the rest of the pile.
Regularly rotate your rug to obtain even wear and prevent sun bleaching.
If possible you should re-arrange your furniture to change traffic direction and prevent wear. NEVER beat your childrens rug as this leads to loose threads and damaged backing.
Spills and Stains
Try to avoid your children eating in the area around their rug. Most spills introduce oils into your rug which attract dirt and lead to dull stains appearing over time. If they do happen to spill on their rug DO NOT rub as this will spread the staining but gently dab at the spillage with a clean cloth.
If applying carpet cleaner start from the outside and work inwards. Use a clean cloth and avoid soaking the area with water. Use paper towels to soak up excess moisture.
NEVER use a spot cleaner on wool rugs as this could set the stain and make it impossible to remove by even a professional cleaner.
Shampoo your childrens rug at least once a year following the manufacturers guidelines as to what kind of cleaning detergents and equipment are suitable.
REMEMBER... The cleaner you keep your childrens rug, the longer it will last!
