Being that I have hardwood flooring throughout my entire house, I tend to stock up on rugs. I have rugs of all types and colors. I change them out the way most people change their throw pillows. But, having so many rugs can be costly when it comes time to get them cleaned. Luckily, I have a very effective DIY professional rug cleaning method!
I think that we can all agree that it doesn’t matter how many improvements or renovations you do, if the house is not clean, it just feels old and well, blah. But, keeping a clean house requires diligence on my best days. Keeping a clean house when you have dogs can seem like an exercise in futility. I know, I have been there. I am STILL there. But, over the years I have found some tried and true methods to make my life easier.
There is nothing that can make an outdoor space feel as cozy as a nice rug. Regardless of how nice your outdoor space is, adding a rug just has a way of defining the space and making it inviting. Since my outdoor rug has seen its better days, I had finally come to the decision the it was time to replace it. During this shopping experience, I stumbled across a few amazing brands of easy to clean indoor outdoor rugs, and there is nothing that I like better than finding quality rugs at reasonable prices!
If you have kids or pets, then you know that they can try the patience of a saint with all their messes. Before buying one of these babies, I spent countless hours searching for the best way to remove stains, spills, and puppy accidents from my beautiful rugs. And folks, I promise you that nothing, absolutely nothing will ever replace my SpotBot. They will have to pry it out of my cold dead hands. 😉
Most of us just love our big and little pets, but what we don’t love is the maintenance it takes to keep flooring and furniture looking and smelling good. If you own a dog or cat, then you know exactly what I mean, and finding per proof rugs is easier said than done!
Between the regular doggie sweat/odor, the occasional hacking up something that shouldn’t have been eaten in the first place, or the (hopefully rare) piddle spots that they so lovingly leave behind….. is it any wonder that there is a constant search to find the perfect pet proof rugs? Well friends, I am here today to help. I will explain the different types of rugs, the pros and cons of each. Then, I will tell you how I manage to keep my favorite rugs looking good.
