The Most Effective Ways to Clean a Synthetic Rug

We make daily use of synthetic carpets or rugs and they get soiled quickly and also develop a kind of smell. But their shiny look will remain intact if you avail professional assistance from experienced rugs cleaners. Apart from calling the best providers of rug or carpet cleaning in Sydney, you can also go for some quick and simple washing on a regular basis.

Cleaning in a washing machine

For cleaning your rug in the washing machine, you need simple things like laundry detergent and white vinegar. If required you may also get hold of stain remover and a drying rack. You would love to know that the majority of synthetic materials can be washed in a machine. So, you can also try it out in between availing the services of rugs cleaners.

At first, shake the rug to drive away all debris and dirt. If you find any stained areas, treat them with a stain removing spray. Then place the rug or carpet in the washing machine. To keep everything balanced, you may put in a few other items such as towels.

Add a suitable quantity of laundry detergent and set the machine to a normal washing cycle with warm water. Include some vinegar, which acts as a natural deodorizer. Once washing is done, place the rug in the dryer and dry on low heat.

Hand washing in a bathtub

For hand washing the rug, you require white vinegar, mild laundry detergent, and fans. In this case, too, you need to shake the rug, and if there is too much dirt, vacuum a bit. After this, pour in warm water in the tub, enough to cover the rug, and add some detergent.

Place the rug in the tub and wash it thoroughly taking special care to ensure that the water moves through the folds. Drain the tub and repeat the process, but this time you need to add some white vinegar to the water instead of detergent.

Drain it finally, squeeze out excess water and then dry it using fans. You may use your bathroom fans but any freestanding fan will accelerate the drying process. After you have removed most of the water, press the carpet or rug using a towel so that more of the water is removed.

You must first check the condition of the carpet or rug thoroughly before deciding whether you should go for hand washing or opt for machine washing. If the rug is considerably damaged, hand washing would be the wisest option. Also, you should be aware of the fact that if your rugs have a rubber backing, they should never be washed with hot water. You should use cold water instead. When washing in a bathtub, ensure that all the soap is rinsed out, otherwise, more dust and dirt will build up over the residue.

Steam cleaning is one of the best methods to deal with dirty rugs or carpets. For excellent results of steam cleaning, there is always an option of hiring professionals of rug or carpet cleaners in Sydney to help you in cleaning.
