Area and oriental rugs are a beautiful addition to any home. They also receive a lot of foot traffic depending on where they are in your home. That being said, wouldn’t it be beneficial to increase their lifespan? Taking care of them is easy! Here are a few key tips to remember:

Remove stains immediately
When an accident occurs, the key is to remove the stain as quickly as possible. And although your instinct might be to rub the stain away, the trick is to blot instead. Use a green cleaner without the harsh chemicals, apply to the area, and blot from the outside working towards the center.

Vacuum often
Vacuuming might sound like an obvious solution to keeping your rugs clean, but it’s often the most forgotten. Save yourself time down the road by vacuuming about once per week. This should eliminate most of the dust, allergens, and pollutants in your home.

Repair when needed
Sometimes your area rugs can get worn and torn from old age, foot traffic, as well as pets. Before a small tear becomes worse, be sure to call you local carpet cleaning experts to repair and reweave. Such repairs also include edging, as well as fringe repair and binding.

In plant cleaning
The smartest solution for increasing the lifespan of your rugs is to have them professionally cleaned. When you choose in-plant cleaning, textile specialists can determine the best cleaning method, wash and dry safely, remove tough stains, and groom for a final touch.
