Keep the area rug in the sun for drying. This should remove any remaining bacteria on it. However, if the sun is very strong, do not keep the area rug in direct sunlight for long, otherwise it can fade its color.
Jute is obtained from the stalk, or the stem, instead of the leaves. This makes the fiber very soft when compared to other fibers such as sisal or seagrass, but limits its durability. Therefore, it is a good option to be used in low-traffic areas like bedroom or home library. Seagrass is highly durable and sturdy, so much that it can be used easily to make furniture. Sisal, however is the sturdiest of all. It is apt for both commercial and residential purposes, with high-traffic area like living area space. When compared on the basis of softness, jute is the softest of all.
Once you clean the rug with a vacuum cleaner, place it in an area where you will be able to shampoo it comfortably, and the water will drain away with ease. A patio or a driveway would be a good option. Place it on the floor and run cool water over it. We suggest that you place a plastic covering before you position the carpet so that no dust from the floor is attached to the rug. Test a corner before you wet it entirely. If the color does not run, you can wet its entire area. Shampoo it, and with a long, bristled brush, softly brush along the grain of the pile. Clean the fringes and brush away from the rug. Take a hose and rinse out the shampoo. Take a window squeegee or a sponge and remove excess water. Lay it flat on a dry surface and switch on the fan.
It is wise to buy a standard size carpet. This way, you will not have to cut and trim it, and it will save a lot of time. Secondly, when looking for carpet pads, note that the sponge rubber underlay and urethane are the best types of carpet pads.
