How to use a steam cleaner on a rug
It is very easy to steam clean a rug. I will walk you through the process step-by-step.
A runner rug I own needed to be cleaned thoroughly. It is used every day, and it sits at the front of our house. This rug gets walked on about one billion times each day. It can get dirty so I wanted it to be cleaned and also sanitized.
I cleaned and sanitized our rug quickly. It’s so much cleaner and my whole entry feels so much cleaner!
This is how to steam clean your rug.
Start by vacuuming the rug from both ends.
Vacuume the area where the rug was laid.
Fill your Steam Machine reservoir then with distilled water.
Attach the attachments that you will use for your area rug. To make the handle more long, I used one segment. The fabric steamer attachment was also used for area rugs.
Turn on the Steam Machine by plugging it in and pressing the button to turn the machine on.
Once your machine has been heated, you can release the steam by pulling the trigger. Spray the steam where you need it to clean and sanitize.
Allow your rug to dry completely before you place it in your home.
