Area Rug Daily Care

Basic Area Rug Care

When it comes to area rug care, your looking at a relatively basic maintenance process. With carpets or rugs, the key is working to minimize dirt, dust, and other debris from building up in the fibers of your area rug. The best way to do this is by investing in a vacuum and putting it to work regularly. If allowed to build up in the rug, dirt and dust can give your flooring a grungy and worn look.

Other recommend forms of daily rug care include removing shoes before walking on your area rug and placing welcome mats at the entrances of your home. Both will help to ensure that outside substances do not settle into your rug's fibers.

Dealing With Area Rug Spills & Stains

Much like carpets, area rugs are vulnerable to spills and stains. Though advancements in flooring technology have helped to prevent this, your rugs and the floors beneath them will take on spills and messes from time to time. The key when this happens is to act fast.

If you spill something on your rug, first absorb the substance with a dry cloth. From there, you find a clean cloth and blot the substance out with warm water, working from the inside out. If the spill persists, consult your area rug manufacturer for approved cleaning solutions.
