Simple tips to take care of your rug pads
Whether area rug pad, or non slip rug pad, or carpet pad, minimal care can increase their longevity manifold. You do not need to invest a great deal of time and money on rug pads. But if you take care of some simple fundamentals, your rug pads will have greater longevity and give you performance that is worth your money. So, take a quick look at these rug pad maintenance tips. â€˘
Dust the rug pads regularly
Even though you clean your rugs and carpets regularly, the tiny debris and dust particles that get trapped inside the fibers of your rug pads can make them unclean. This might invite dust borne diseases in your home! So, make a schedule to clean the rug pads regularly. Lift and shake the rug pads to remove the loose dust particles. Then sweep and vacuum the rugs to remove the rigid dirt that might remain entrapped between the networks of rug pad fibers. After the completion of the entire process you will be assured that your rug pad is scrupulously clean and fit for reuse. â€˘
Change the position of rug pads
Keeping the rug pad in the same position forever might lead to irregular surface pattern. The pressure of heavy furniture and regular footfalls can make a carpet pad or an Area Rug Pad deformed. This will make the carpets and area rugs placed over them bumpy and uneven. Eventually, the aesthetic appeal of your interiors will be at stake! So, if you get into the habit of rotating and changing the position of the rug pads from time to time then you can prevent such occurrences. â€˘
Detergent wash the rug pads
What will happen if there is an accidental spill on your carpet? The water will percolate through the carpet fibers and accumulate on the Carpet Pad or the Non Slip Rug Pad. It will lead to patches of stain on the rug pad readily. If you leave the stains like that then it might lead to discoloration. Eventually, your carpet pad will become worn out, and you will have to dispose it off after some time! But there is a simple way of preventing this. Get a bucket full of lukewarm water and mix mild fabric detergent with it. Churn out bubble. Now dip a scrubbing sponge into that soapy solution and rub the stained area of the rug pad with it. Do not worry if the stains darken as it is a normal process. The stains will get removed as soon as you blow dry the area.
