In this blog post, we are going to share some of the simplest tips that will help you to perform the task of leather rug cleaning in the most efficient possible manner. So, here is a look at those tips –
Shake out the dirt
The dirt stuck inside the rug could pose a major threat to its beauty and structure over the longer period. This is the reason that the first thing you need to do when cleaning the rug is to shake out the dirt. Pick it up, take it outside and shake it vigorously. This will shred out all the loose dirt that might be blocking the beautiful and intricate work on your leather rug.
Clean it up
Once the dirt is shaken and removed the next step is to clean it up. You can either use foam based leather cleaner or simply add a mild soap into the water to create a solution to carry out the cleaning. Be sure to check out the seller instructions before using any detergent or such solution, as many rugs come with instructions for cleaning.
Blot dry it
Once you have carried out the cleaning using the solution, the next step is to dry out the rug. You can use soft towels to blot dry the rug first. Put the towels on the rug and cover it with heavy objects such as a book. This will reduce the chances of damage caused by rubbing or wiping off the towels on the leather surface.
If the rug seems to be moist even after blow drying, it is recommended to leave it out in the sun for some time for air drying. This will ensure that all the residual moisture evaporates and the rug is free from the scope of any type of damage.
There you have it – some easy steps to carry out the cleaning of your leather rug without having to run anywhere in the market. So, if you have been planning to get rid of the dirt and dust from the rug, it is time to adorn the cleaning hat and begin with these steps right away!
