How to Clean Your Ruggable Pad
Ruggable pads are a fantastic addition to any space. Not only are they stylish and versatile, but they are also easy to clean. Whether you have spilled a drink or noticed some built-up dirt, here is a step-by-step guide on how to effectively clean your Ruggable pad.
What You’ll Need:
- A vacuum cleaner with a hose attachment
- Mild detergent or carpet cleaner
- A soft-bristle brush or sponge
- Clean, cold water
- Clean, dry towels or absorbent cloths
Step 1: Vacuuming
Begin by thoroughly vacuuming your Ruggable pad to remove any loose dirt, debris, or pet hair. Use a vacuum cleaner with a hose attachment to reach the corners and edges as well.
Step 2: Spot Cleaning
If you notice any stains or spills on your Ruggable pad, gently blot them with a clean, damp cloth or sponge. Avoid rubbing the area, as it can spread the stain further.
If the stain persists, mix a small amount of mild detergent or carpet cleaner with water. Test this mixture on a small, inconspicuous area of your rug first to ensure it doesn’t cause any discoloration. Then, apply the solution to the stained area using the soft-bristle brush or sponge. Gently work the solution into the fibers in a circular motion, and let it sit for a few minutes.
Step 3: Rinse and Dry
Once you have treated the stain, rinse the area thoroughly with clean, cold water to remove any remaining detergent or cleaner.
After rinsing, blot the wet area with clean, dry towels or absorbent cloths to remove excess moisture. Make sure to press down firmly to soak up as much water as possible.
Step 4: Drying and Reassembling
Allow your Ruggable pad to air dry completely before reassembling it. This may take a few hours, depending on the size and thickness of the pad. Avoid placing it under direct sunlight or using artificial heat sources as they may cause shrinkage or damage.
Once dry, carefully reattach the rug cover to the rug pad, following the instructions provided by Ruggable.
Congratulations! Your Ruggable pad is now clean and ready to be enjoyed again. Regular upkeep and spot cleaning will help preserve its beauty and longevity for years to come.
