Anything as thick and chunky as a mat on the floor of your home is always going to be very tricky to sustain because with all the fibre material involved the dirt and dust can really get deep down into the fabric. Once it is there it is very hard to get out because you need some very robust techniques to free it from the grasp of your carpet, but that isn’t to say that it is impossible and that these techniques do not exist. They do and you just need an introduction to them to take your shag pile from a series of dirt and grime to one which is absolutely gleaming and fresh. If you are struggling when it comes to maintaining your furniture then here are a few tips, especially when it comes to the foundations of any home – the carpet.

The first technique is the most obvious and the simplest and that technique is vacuuming. Vacuuming is the staple of any household work and when you think about it chores must have been one hundred times harder decades ago when the vacuum, or hoover depending on your preference, didn’t exist. However just going over the surface of your mat of choice and thinking that will be enough just won’t cut it because you need to put some serious effort in.

First and foremost you need a vacuum which is up to the job. When it comes to rug cleaning most people just don’t have the equipment to aid their efforts so this is what you need to address before you begin. Most hoovers and vacuums have settings which allow you to clean certain areas of the home more efficiently so make sure the relevant settings are turned on. Secondly, you need to put your back into it as if you don’t you will never get down deep enough to make any difference to the upkeep of your carpet.

Beating might seem like it belongs back in the nineteen hundreds, what with the invention of the hoover, but in reality it is a very efficient method of cleaning. When it comes to rug cleaning they can be very difficult to get spotless as they are incredibly thicker, thicker than most carpets are mats. To get all of the dirt out of the fabric and to the surface you need to beat it quite strenuously from the other side as this will come through to the top. Once you have done this then you can just simply vacuum the top side for maximum cleanliness. When it comes to housework beating is an essential method.
