Taking good care of your new area rug is hassle-free with these handy expert tips!
Basic Area Rug Maintenance
A good vacuum cleaner is your area rug's best friend. A quality vacuum is efficient and effective, and you should try to use it regularly. Vacuuming removes dirt, pet hair, and dust from your area rug's fibers that can dull its appearance over time.
Cotton rugs can be cleaned easily using a variety of cleaning products. If your cotton rug doesn't have a backing and isn't too big, it can even be washed in the washing machine!
Area Rug Spills & Stains
Try to wipe up any spills as soon as possible. If you leave it to soak in, it can become a stain. Blot the spill with a dry cloth or paper towel. Don't rub or scrape—this can damage the rug's fibers.
You should always use warm water when dealing with a spill or stain. Hot water can set the stain, which makes it even more difficult to remove.
If you need a stain remover, be sure to blot up any excess moisture first. Then, work the stain remover in gently, applying only as much as you need. Thoroughly rinse the spot with warm water and blot dry.
