Daily Area Rug Care
By following your area rug manufacturer's guidelines, you can help ensure that your rug looks great for years to come.
Vacuuming your rug is the best way to keep it looking great. By investing in a vacuum and using it regularly, you are working to remove dirt, dust, and other debris that build up in the fibers and can cause damage and a lackluster appearance to your area rug. How often you need to vacuum will depend on how much traffic your rug receives. You should be vacuuming at least once a week on average.
You should remove your shoes before walking across your area rug and place entry mats at the doors of your home. The less amount of dirt that enters your home, the better.
When solid messes, like dirt, appear on your area rug, vacuum the debris away immediately. The longer you wait to handle these messes, the more likely the dirt and debris will leave a lasting impression on your rug. If vacuuming doesn't do the trick, you can consult your manufacturer for additional tips.
Spills & Stains
Area rugs are vulnerable to stains, so when a spill happens, address the mess immediately to avoid lingering damage. How you address specific spills can depend on the substance, but you should start by absorbing the substance with a dry cloth before deciding how to continue. For in-depth advice on stain care, consult your manufacturer.
