Polar bears are some of the mammals adapted to live in the Arctic. By Adapted, I mean, can live in cold areas. Everyone or almost everyone (for inclusivity purposes) knows polar bears have a coat of insulated fur that does not absorb water. This bear will dive into the cold water to get that fish for dinner and shake off the water.
To keep warm, under the skin, the bear has a thick layer of fat. The beauty of adaptation is nothing seems like an accident or coincidence. Everything is by design. Polar bears have this thick fur on the bottom of their feet that helps in movement on ice. On top of all these, the polar bear has black skin to help absorb warmth when the sun shines.
Away from the polar bear living freely in the Arctic to more useful information. There are versions of polar bears in our houses. You probably guessed it right, the polar bear fur rug. It is an expensive investment but totally worth it. The bear design and the warmth it provides are some of the benefits, but how exactly do you clean it yourself without making it look dull and worn out?
I would recommend the use of professional cleaning services. Fayetteville Carpet Cleaner is a company dedicated to handling all your rug and carpet cleaning needs. Check them out on www.carpetcleanerfayettevillar.com. If you decide to do it yourself here is a simple procedure on how to go about it.
1. Step 1
Always begin by removing the loose dirt. Pick the big pieces such as Lego blocks physically. To reach the dirt trapped in the polar bear fur fibers, you will need to vacuum. Hold up the rug some of the dirt will fall off. Then use a handheld vacuum cleaner and clean it till there is no more dust. You could also beat the rug in between the vacuuming it fastens the process.
2. Step 2
To clean the rug, you need to use a very soft brush. It is polar bear fur, and it does not withstand vigorous rubbing during cleaning. Clean with an appropriate cleaning detergent. Bleach is safe when it comes to removing any tough stains, but watch out for overly harsh bleach. It will weaken the fibers. Brush gently from one end to the other as you observe the grain.
3. Step 3
Remember polar bear fur is not used to overly hot climates and temperatures. You will need to dry it in a cool environment with a preferably wind place. If you can only hang it indoors, place it under a fan or a clothespin. It will seem like a lot of work. It is if you do not have time. You will need to keep brushing the fur as the rug dries to avoid situations where the hair becomes frizzy or clumps together due to the dripping water. Vacuum the carpet after it drains to remove any dust that may have attached during the outside drying process.
The polar bear rug is an excellent accessory to your house and an expensive one. You should prioritize its general care. Always use a protective spray and brush the fur frequently to keep it soft.
