Daily Area Rug Care

Area rug care and maintenance is a relatively simple task! Simply by establishing a routine for your care, you can help ensure that your area rug looks great as the years pass. 

The first step in area rug care is obtaining a quality vacuum and putting it to use regularly. By vacuuming up your rug, you are working to remove dirt, dust, and other debris that are present in the fibers. This debris can cause damage and grunginess over time. How often you vacuum will depend on the foot traffic on the rug in question. 

Encouraging guests to remove their shoes before walking on your rug is also helpful. 

Dealing With Area Rug Spills & Stains

Area rugs are vulnerable to spills and stains. But just because a mess occurs, it doesn't mean that your area rug is forever ruined. If a liquid accident happens, the key is to act fast. Grab a cloth and absorb the liquid before dabbing at the stain with another cloth submerged in cold water. For solid spills, vacuum them immediately. 

When in doubt, consult your manufacturer on best practices in maintaining your rug.
