One of the top trends when it comes to area rugs happens to be shag style rugs. Steam Magic Carpet Cleaning offers helpful tips to care for shag rugs.
What is a Shag Rug
There are many area rugs that you can choose from. There are styles that you can choose from in terms of size and shape. There are rugs to fit large spaces and then there are some that are small and intricate. You also can choose a wide variety of colors and patterns as well. When it comes to the current shag trend, the rug usually has a larger and fuller pile. The pile are the fibers that are longer and more full so that the outcome of the rug is full and soft. They are a great addition to any room and add some fun and comfort. The shag rug needs to be treated properly so that they are not damaged or compacted down.
Can You Vacuum a Shag Rug?
You want to make sure that you are ready to take care of your area shag rug. They have a larger and fuller pile so you want to make sure you have a way to remove the dirt and debris that might be in the fibers. The best way to do that is to make sure that you have a vacuum that you can use. There are some shags that you can run your vacuum right over. This will pull the dirt that might otherwise be attached to the fibers. Some are so full that you might want to use the attachment to your vacuum to run over the space. You can set the hose attachment and pull straight up to bring the fibers back to a full look. This is a great way to have your area rug lasting longer.
Beat Dust Out of Rug
You also want to take some time to take the rug out of the house and hold it up so that it can be swatted. This is a process that you can use to smack the back of the rug to push the dirt off the rug, backing and the fibers. The more you can release the dirt and dust the fuller the rug will be and the longer the rug will last.
