Preventative Area Rug Maintenance

Fortunately, area rugs do not require a ton of care and maintenance to continue looking great and functioning well. By establishing a routine for maintaining your rug, you can help to do your part to ensure that it ages well over time. Like most maintenance tasks, remaining vigilant in relation to cleaning your rug is most surefire to keep it looking great.

For area rugs, vacuuming is the name of the game when it comes to daily upkeep. Investing in a quality vacuum and putting it to use can help to remove dirt, dust, and other debris that are present in the fibers. Debris like this can cause damage to the fibers over time. How often you vacuum your rug will depend on the amount of foot-traffic it receives.

You should also always encourage guests to remove their shoes before walking on your area rug and consider placing entry mats near the doors of your home.

Dealing With Area Rug Spills & Stains

While area rugs are more vulnerable to spills and stains than some other flooring options, when and if an accident happens, that doesn't necessarily mean the end of your area rug.

So if you find yourself having to navigate a solid or liquid spill, the key is always to address it immediately after it takes place. Doing so will help to prevent long-term damage from occurring to your rug or the flooring beneath. Simply grab a cloth and absorb the liquid and then dab at the mess with another cloth submerged in cold water. You may also use an approved cleaning solution but always test it first before trying it on your area rug. For solid messes, use your vacuum cleaner.
