Some rugs like leather shag or flokati (shag wool) can be cleaned by simply shaking them vigorously. There is no need to vacuum these rugs; simply beat or rake it after giving it a good shake. However, rugs like oriental or bamboo need to be vacuumed regularly. Vacuum both sides of the rug, running it gently down its surface in straight lines. If it has a looped design, do not use the rotating beater bar, but direct suction. Don't vacuum frilled edges of a rug; simply dust the frills using a stiff broom before vacuuming the area around it. If the area experiences heavy foot traffic, you will need to vacuum the rug daily.
To get rid of regular dirt and dust from the rugs, vacuum cleaning is the best way to go. It can easily remove all the small particles of dust and debris trapped in the fabric. To begin with, take it outdoors and shake it vigorously so that the loose dust particles fall off. Use a good quality vacuum cleaner with rotating beater bar attached to it. Make sure you vacuum clean both sides of the rugs. Ideally, a wool rug needs thorough vacuuming two to three times a week.
To make a square rug, once you finish with the first 3 strips, hold the second set of 3 strips at 90 angle and begin braiding. This will give your rug a square corner.
While it comes to dealing a faded carpet or resistant carpet stain removal, it is sometimes better to replace the carpet. But, purchasing a new one is quite expensive. A good option that will be lighter for your pocket is to dye the carpet and provide a new, fresh color. Carpet dyeing may be a better alternative to replacement, especially if the carpet fibers are in good condition. There are professional carpet dyers with whom you can hand out the task. A more challenging idea is to dye it on your own by buying the do-it-yourself kits. Dyeing a carpet on your own will cost you only a few bucks.
