Vancouver Area Rug Cleaner Shares How to Clean an Area Rug at Home

Vancouver Area Rug Cleaners Angelo's FabriClean Reveals the Correct Process for Home Area Rug Cleaning

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - January 15, 2016) - Vancouver area rug cleaner Angelo Di Pomponio wants people to know the correct method for cleaning an area rug at home. As long as the area rug isn't something pricey or an antiquated piece that requires special care, it's possible to clean it outside your home with a garden hose, depending on your space and facilities. For more information, go to:

If you do have a durable area rug that can be cleaned at home, the first thing to do is check the weather. It should be warm and dry for at least 24 hours to allow for adequate drying time.

It's important to try and account for the weight of the wet rug before it's actually wet. A large area rug will soak up a lot of water, making it much heavier. So if it's a struggle to lift when dry, make sure you have someone on hand to help you with lifting and hanging later.

For drying, choose a place to hang the rug that can take the weight, for example a handrail or guard rail. Unless the rug is small, it's unlikely that a clothesline will suffice. It may bend or snap.

A wet rug must be hung. It should never be laid flat to dry or you could end up with mould or a terrible sour smell. If the rug isn't too heavy, you can hang it over the shower curtain bar. Ideally, if you have suction equipment, like a wet dry/vac, remove as much moisture as possible before hanging the rug.

Remember, if your rug is expensive or stained it's best to let professional carpet cleaners handle it. They have special solvents and solutions to remove stains and cleanse while preserving the life and integrity of expensive area rugs. Visit the blog at for more tips and tricks on carpet care.
