Keep Your Area Rug Looking Like New
PRACTICE PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE
Even if you don’t have a lot of spare time to devote to area rug cleaning and care, there are some quick and easy tasks that will do wonders to protect the look and longevity of your area rug.
Preventative maintenance will go a long way to keep your rug looking as good as new for years to come. Ask family members and guests to remove their shoes before walking across your area rug. Also invest in some doormats to trap dirt and particles instead of tracking them throughout your home.
AREA RUG CARE TIPS
You should regularly vacuum your area rug to remove all of the dirt, dust, and allergens from its fibers. We also recommend the occasional professional cleaning or shampooing your rug.
Some rugs have stain resistant treatments that improve your ability to clean stains, but not prevent them. Similarly, rugs with soil resistant treatments reduce the rate of soiling, but all rugs require regular care and maintenance.

Never dry clean area rugs or use bleach on them!
