So, once you have picked up your polyester rug from our catalogue, be sure to go through our helpful tips on how to keep your polyester rugs maintained as well.
How Often Should I Vacuum A Polyester Rug?
Vacuuming your polyester rug on a regular basis is a must. In fact, vacuuming is your rug's first line of defence against common signs of wear and tear. Overall, you want to clean your polyester rugs at least once a week.
Hoovering a carpet has more than one purpose though. Firstly, it will remove any dust and debris from the carpet. In addition to that, it also fluffs up your carpet again. Since the carpet can be crushed by regular foot traffic, vacuuming it will ensure it does not have that pressed down look old carpets get.
Some carpets can accumulate a layer of oil over time as well. Hoovering or vacuuming regularly can remove this oily layer and prevent it from affecting the colours and the design of your polyester carpet.
How Do I Prevent Common Types Of Damage To Polyester Rugs?
In addition to regular vacuum cleaning, there are some other things you can do to keep your polyester rug clean and pristine. So, without further ado, here are our top tips to prevent common types of damage to your polyester rug.
Don't place your rug in sunlight: When you place your rug inside your home, make sure you don't place it into direct sunlight. Sunlight can cause the colours of the fabric fibres to fade, which will make your carpet look much older than it is over time. So, make sure you choose a strategic place for your rug.
Clear Furniture: Some of our polyester carpets are placed under furniture. If the furniture is not moved from time to time, it can leave a lasting indentation in the rug. So, make sure you move furniture at least once a month to prevent permanent damage to the carpet. If you are worried about ripping the carpet, make sure to add some gliders on the base of the furniture - this will prevent the rug from ripping as you move the furniture.
Clean stains immediately: One of the biggest causes of premature damage to carpets is staining. While stains can occur, even if you are being extra careful, it is important to deal with them appropriately to avoid permanent damage to the polyester rug. In other words, clean stains as soon as possible.
When you clean a stain from a polyester rug, never rub the stain to remove it. Instead, blot the stain as much as you can. If any staining remains after blotting, make sure you use the appropriate rug cleaning product.
There are various products you can use to clean a polyester rug. However, even when a product is labelled as safe for cleaning polyester rugs, we always recommend testing the product in an inconspicuous spot. When the spot check comes back clear, you can safely apply the product on the stain to clean it.
Can I Clean Polyester Rugs With Ecofriendly Products?
If you do not like to use chemicals in your home, then there is an easy and ecofriendly manner to keep your polyester rugs clean. If you need to clean a stain, you can make up a simple solution of vinegar and water. Simply use an equal amount of vinegar and water to make up the cleaning solution.
Once you have the cleaning solution, add it onto the stain. When the solution has been applied, you can add a little bit of baking soda on the stain. Leave it to rest for a little while and then take a cleaning cloth to blot the stain again. Some of the powder will remain, so make sure to hoover up any remaining baking soda. Finally, leave your polyester rug to dry properly.
Please note that not all fabric fibres handle a combination of vinegar and baking soda as well. While it may be suitable for polyester rugs, other rugs may not like the combination as much. So, if you are using this method on other fabric fibres, do a little spot check to ensure the mixture won't cause damage.
