Rugs are a beautiful way to pull a room together. They bring color and warmth, and feel good under bare feet.To make a rug last for years, you need to clean and maintain it. We know that dealing with carpet and rug stains can be a nightmare if not approached properly and some approaches  may damage your carpet irreversibly.You may think that you have to send your carpet to professional  after an accident or spill but we are here to prove that you can clean it yourself and save a fortune .

Here are the steps that you have to follow;

-Cleaning process starts with something basic,first thing to do is vacuuming the rug on front and back to remove dirt and debris.

-Before you start applying the mix try it in the small area to see if it has any  affect on colors.

-After applying cleaning mix to area,hair dryer or fan can be used for drying. Especially if the carpet is placed in a high traffic area where any leftover moisture will wick dirt.
