DAILY area rug CARE

Fortunately for homeowners, area rug care & maintenance is relatively simple. In fact, basic area rug care & maintenance requires only a vacuum cleaner. It's honestly that easy! By investing in a quality vacuum and putting it to work on a regular basis, your area rug can and will withstand the test of time. Vacuuming is important as it works to remove dirt, dust, and other debris that can give your rug a worn and grungy look. You may also want to encourage your guests to remove shoes before walking on your area rugs and place welcome mats at the entryways to your home.


Of the many benefits of area rugs, spills and stains can prevent people from purchasing. The key is to fast when spills occur; the damage can be prevented. While how you address the spill may vary depending on the substance, a good rule of thumb is to immediately grab a clean cloth and absorb as much of the spill as possible before blotting out the substance with another clean cloth submerged in cold water. You can consult your manufacturer for guidelines on how to care for your area rug.
