Caring for your area rugs is as easy as finding styles that you adore. 

Daily Care & Maintenance

When it comes to ensuring the fabulous appearance of your favorite area rugs, the key is tailoring your care and maintenance routine to the specific rug fibers and rug constructions you own. Following your rug manufacturer’s guidelines will also be the way to establishing proper upkeep!

First, it’s wise to place entry mats at the doors of your home to help prevent grime on the bottom of footwear from reaching your soft area rugs. Especially during the seasons that experience increased moisture, snow, ice, and slush, you can encourage residents and visitors to put their shoes on a shoe rack to keep dirty treads off your rugs.

Next, consider investing in a quality vacuum cleaner that has appropriate settings to match your area rug constructions. Regular vacuuming with a suitable model is the number one way to keep your area rugs looking brand new for as long as possible. In addition to removing potentially harmful dirt, dust, and pet dander more effectively, vacuuming keeps the pile of your area rugs appearing fresh and clean.

Simply put, proper vacuuming will extend the lifespan of your area rugs!

Dealing With Spills & Stains On Rugs

When spills or messes land on your area rugs, always take care of them as soon as possible. You will first blot out as much liquid or debris as possible with a dry cloth or paper towel, and be sure not to scrub the mess as it could work its way further into the fibers. After completing this step, use warm water to remove the stain and press a clean, dry cloth to absorb any residual substance. If you want to use a gentle stain-remover, always consult your rug manufacturer's guidelines for approved cleaners that will maintain your rug warranty.
