DAILY AREA RUG CARE
Area rug care is quite simple! By following our care guide and establishing your own care routine, you'll be amazed at how great your area rugs consistently look.
Daily rug care revolves around vacuuming. By investing in a high-quality vacuum cleaner and putting it to use on a regular basis, you can help ensure that dirt, dust, and other debris do not harm the fibers of your rug. If dirt and other debris work their way into your carpet fibers, they can cause lingering damage and hinder the rug's ability to perform and look great. How often you vacuum the rug will depend on how much foot traffic it receives.
It is also recommended that you remove your shoes before walking across your area rug and that you ask guests to do the same. Entry mats are also an effective way to manage the amount of dirt that enters your home.
For dry stains or messes on your area rugs, vacuum them up right away to avoid long-term damage to your carpet flooring. The longer you wait, the more likely it is that dirt, dust, and other debris have the opportunity to damage the fibers of your rug. It is also a best practice to address solid and liquid messes immediately after they occur. More on that in the next section.
Much like carpet flooring, area rugs are vulnerable to spills and liquid stains. Depending on the substance spilled, the process may vary slightly, but generally speaking, when a liquid spill takes place, obtain a dry cloth and try to absorb as much of the mess as you can. From there, obtain another cloth, drench it in cold water, and begin to blot out the substance. If the mess persists, consult your manufacturer for approved cleaning solutions.
