How Do I Clean a Braided Rug?

Nov. 11, 2022

Braided rugs are an absolutely gorgeous addition to any home. They provide you with a classic look that is both durable and comfortable. They are perfect for the winter months and help keep your home warmer. They are also great in the summer when you want a little bit of rustic style.

Braided rugs have been around for centuries and were originally designed by pioneers. They never wanted to waste fabric. Instead, they wove pieces together to make floor coverings to keep their houses safe from the cold winter months. These rugs were both beautiful and practical. They were also very durable and lasted a long time. Braided rugs are still alive and well today! They provide a bit of rustic charm to almost any environment. They can also be purchased at quite reasonable prices and will last for decades.

Fortunately, with new technology, braided rugs can now be found in a variety of shapes and sizes. You can also find them in a variety of different colors, and these colors can actually be customized for use in your home. You can find stair runners, welcome mats, and even full-size rugs that can cover an entire room. No matter what your needs are, there is a rug for you.


How to Clean Woven Rugs

Step 1: Take them outside and shake them

The first thing you need to do is to take your braided rugs outside and shake them off thoroughly. This is to remove larger, loose pieces as well as any pet hair or dirt that may be trapped.

You can also hang them from the balcony or deck railing and hit them with a broom. It doesn't matter how you do it, but removing those loose dust and debris particles is an important first step in cleaning up your braided carpet.

Step 2: Scrubbing

After removing the loose dust and dirt particles, it's time to lay the rug flat and scrub it. Braided rugs, especially those with lighter colors, can become worn and grubby over time. Vacuuming will not eliminate this appearance; you need to scrub thoroughly.

Mix half water and half white vinegar in a bucket. You don't want to use soap for this task, as it can get trapped in the fibers of the braided carpet and leave an unsightly white residue.

Continue scrubbing until you notice that your liquid mixture is starting to get dirty. This is the best indication that the dirt in your braided carpet is starting to pull up.

Step 3: Pressure Spray

After you are confident that the stain has been scrubbed out, you will need to rinse the carpet. If you have a high-pressure hose or pressure washer nearby, spray it with the high-pressure hose or pressure washer. The high pressure of the wash will not only remove the water that has filled with dirt from scrubbing, but will also get rid of any remaining loose dirt and dust particles.

Step 4: Hang It Up to Dry

At the end of the cleaning process, when you are sure that all the dirt and grime has been removed from your braided rug, it is time to dry it. Both sides of the rug must be completely dry before you bring it back into the house.

Hang it on the railing (as you did when you knocked out the loose dust particles) in a particularly sunny spot so it can dry properly. If you leave water on the carpet, it will start to stink and you will need to clean the carpet again from scratch.
