Maintaining your Area Rugs

With a little care, your area rug will look beautiful for a long time.

Caring For Your Area Rugs

Establishing a care routine for your rug will not only keep it looking beautiful, but it will help extend its life. Allowing dirt and debris to build up will leave your rug looking dull and breaks the carpet fibers down. Follow our guide to learn how to properly care for and maintain your area rug.

Routine Care For your Area rug

Caring for your new area rugs will be easy once you establish a routine. You will want to vacuum your rugs a few times a week. How often depends on how much foot-traffic your room receives.

It is a good idea to place mats at entryways to reduce the amount of dirt tracked into your home, and it is best practice to remove your shoes before walking on your floors.

Invest in a professional cleaning once a year to remove buildup and restore your rug's vibrance, while extending its life.

No matter how careful you are, spills are inevitable. But if you address them quickly, you will reduce the risk of stains forming. For dry spills, simply vacuum the area. For liquid spills, blot the liquid up with a clean, dry cloth.
