Area Rug Care & Maintenance

Follow our care guide below!

Daily Area Rug Care

Area rugs are a budget-friendly and low-maintenance flooring alternative. By establishing a care and maintenance routine for your area rug, you can help ensure that it continues to look its best. 

Vacuuming your rug will help to prolong its lifespan and promote enduring beauty. By vacuuming, you are helping to remove dirt and other debris that lay dormant in the rug fibers. If left unattended, this debris can lead to premature aging and a dingy appearance. You should plan on vacuuming as much as the foot traffic of the rug requires. Most will do it every couple of days.

Ensuring shoe removal before walking across your rug as well.

Entry mats at your doors will also help to ensure that unwanted dirt does not enter your home.

Spills & Stains

One of the most obvious downsides to area rugs is their vulnerability to spills and stains. However, when a spill occurs, the result does not always have to be a stain. You can minimize the damage to your rug flooring by addressing accidents as they occur.

When a spill takes place, immediately absorb the substance with a cloth. You should consult your manufacturer on approved practices for handling that specific spill from there.
