Area rugs warm up floors, inject color and pattern into a space, and create zones in your
home’s living quarters.
But everyday use is naturally going to cause your rug to get dirty. Things like pets or food stains are inevitable. Food is frequently dropped on rugs, especially in the kitchen and dining room. And even after wiping it up, the bacteria can live on your rug for weeks.
When liquids or other foods get spilled on your rug, it can leave a huge stain. if you don’t get it out as soon as possible, the stain will set in and can break down the fibers, damaging your rug. The more stains scattered throughout your rug, the more unpleasant it becomes.
Your rug could also contain other unwanted substances, such as pollen grains, pet urine or hair, pet feces, dead skin cells, bacteria, dirt, dust mites, mold and mildew, or volatile organic compounds.
The longer you wait to clean them, the more you allow this dust to be absorbed, the dirtier your rugs will become over time. This can not only lead to a shorter lifespan but also decrease the overall hygiene of your home.
