It’s not just your carpets that need special care when it comes to cleaning. The same goes for your rugs as well. In fact, you probably need to clean your rugs more often than your carpet because they are the first thing your shoes touch when you enter your home; so all that dirt that has collected from outdoors onto your shoes rubs off on the rug even if most of it gets wiped off on the welcome mat before you enter.
If you practice a no shoes policy, yourself, your family members and your guests probably remove the shoes while standing on the rug to avoid getting any dirt on your carpet. You probably care less if your hallway rug gets dirty because it’s portable and can be cleaned, where carpet cleaning is more of a bother.
However, appearances are very important to most homeowners. The more visits your house receives, the more unsightly that entrance rug becomes and it could leave a horrible first impression to your guests. The dirtier the rug gets, the more damage is caused to the fibres, so the rug cleaning has to be performed on a fairly regular basis.
