    Does Your Carpet or Rug Shed? - Know the Right Way to Ensure Rug Cleaning

    You have spent days seeking out the perfect rug to complete your room, but now that it is in place, it has become a frustrating fixture. Your rug or carpet sheds, regularly. With that shedding comes fuzz, dust bunnies, and balls of fibres around your home. If you have wooden floors, the dust and shedding pieces are amplified; making your home look like you have not cleaned the floors in weeks.


    Area rugs and carpets will shed, especially with frequent use. However, there are ways to keep those rugs in fine condition and limit the shed from affecting your household cleanliness.

    A Guide to Carpet Mould and Dry Rot

    If you have wall-to-wall carpeting or area rugs in your home, and you are seeing moisture problems, be wary of mould growth. In the right conditions, carpet can be a breeding ground for mould that lives feeding on bacteria, dust and spores. High risk areas include basement carpeting, carpet in damp areas, and wet carpet that has been sitting for an extended period of time. Wet carpet and underpadding should be removed immediately, as mould can begin growing on the fabric within 48 – 72 hours. Even if your carpet seems dry, the underpadding may stay wet for a long period of time. Neglecting to remove or replace the affected area promptly can cause much bigger problems and may lead to higher repair costs for you later.

    Rug and Carpet Care 101: A Cleaning and Maintenance Guide

    How to Wash a Small Rug?

    Rugs should never be put into the washing machine and they should never tumble dry. Rugs should always be cleaned flat.

    How to Dry Your Rug?

    Never hang your wet rug on a clothesline, as it can distort the shape of your rug. Your best option is to place it on a slatted picnic table, clothes-drying rack or a counter top. Remember to protect the surface by laying towels or old sheets down before you place the wet rug on top of it.
