4 Signs It’s Time To Clean Your Bathroom Rug

Posted on September 6, 2022

The bathroom is constantly crying out to be cleaned. And whether you clean your bathroom regularly or not, your bathroom rugs probably don’t get cleaned nearly enough. If they are being cleaned, are they being cleaned properly? Here is what the experts think you ought to know about the signs that it is time to clean your bathroom rug.

1. Allergies

If you find yourself sneezing in your bathroom, it could be a lot of things. It could be your shampoo, soap, or your odor-reducing scent. But it could also be your bathroom rug(s). Even if you are vacuuming these rugs, they are not going to be getting fully clean compared to professional rug cleaning.

The reason you have a bathroom rug is to keep moisture from ending up on your floor. That means water ends up on the floor covering, which can lead to mold or mildew growth. These substances can increase allergy symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, and irritation of the skin and eyes.

2. Look

Just use your eyes and evaluate if your rug is looking as good as the first day you bought it. You might see some of the fibers are matting, which means they are not as lively, soft, or upright as they used to be. You can also take a look at the overall color of the rug. Are the colors correct?

Rug discoloration is not always as apparent as staining. You might have a similar shade, but it has darkened. But yes, there is also the issue of stains, which can make your rug look unkempt or even downright disgusting. But you don’t have to throw your rug away. Just clean it!

3. Smell

There can be a lot of smells in a bathroom, but they all should disappear as a result of cleaning. But after you have cleaned your sink, your counter, your toilet, and your tub, is the smell lingering? It might be due to something that is trapped in your rug.

Even without a visual indicator of something on the rug, a scent could still be emanating from your floor. If cleaning your rug does not solve the smell, the source of the scent could still be a neglected surface. Look into whether or not you need tile and grout cleaning.

4. Time

Time brings with it good and bad times. But a bathroom rug can sop up the bad easier than most things. So what you will eventually need is a good cleaning. Even the most considerate and clean person still sheds dead skin cells, but add a bathroom to that, and accidents happen.

If you have not cleaned your bathroom rug in a year, it could certainly benefit from some professional cleaning. And if you have decided to have a bathroom carpet, you are certainly going to want a carpet cleaning service to come out at least that often.
