Daily Area Rug Care

Area rugs will require daily care in order to look their best. You learn more about our recommended area rug care practices below.

Vacuuming is essential in ensuring your rug consistently looks great. By vacuuming up your area rug, you are working to remove dirt, dust, and other debris that are present in the fibers. If left unattended, the debris can harm your fibers and cause your rug to age prematurely. You should vacuum weekly, at least.

Entry mats can also help to prevent dirt and other debris from entering your home.

Rotating your area rugs will help to ensure proper wear throughout.

Dirt & Debris

Dirt and debris can lead to premature aging of your area rug. That's why you should vacuum immediately when a solid mess takes place. The longer you wait, the more likely it is that the dirt and debris work their way into the fibers, causing long-term damage to your rug.

Spills & Stains

For liquid spills, the key is to act fast to avoid permanent staining. The longer you wait to address liquid spills or messes, the more likely staining or long-term damage is. When a liquid spill takes place, find a clean cloth and absorb the substance before using another cloth to blot out the mess with cold water.
