3 Facts You Never Knew About Rugs & Carpets

In this article, we will explain step by step the unknown things about carpets and rugs.

Yes, you heard it right. No matter what carpet you buy, if you take good care of it, you can use it for a lifetime. The first thing you should pay attention to is that if you spill something on the carpet, you need to wipe it off immediately. If you do not wipe it off immediately, the carpet will soak up the spill and it will be very difficult to remove it.
Another maintenance task you need to do is to clean the ‘ridges’ once a month. With this way, your carpet will look more elegant and last longer.
2. You Should Wash Your Carpet Every Year
If you think that you take good care of your carpet and that it does not need to be cleaned, you are wrong. Carpets contain various microbes that are invisible to the human eye in the air. If you have your carpet washed at least once a year, your home will smell better and the germs in your carpet will die.
Note: If you have a baby, old or sick person at home, you should have your carpet washed at least 2 times a year.
