Practice Preventative Maintenance
Preventative maintenance will keep your area rug looking and feeling great for years to come!
Ask family members and guests to remove their shoes before walking across your area rug. You may also consider getting doormats to trap dirt before it can be tracked across your new area rug.
Regularly vacuum your area rug to remove any dirt, dust, and allergens from its fibers. We also recommend the occasional professional cleaning or shampooing your rug.
But remember, don't dry or use bleach on your area rug!
Area Rug Spills & Stains
No matter how careful you are, accidents happen, especially with kids and pets at home. Fortunately, many of our area rugs are sold with stain-resistant technology, which makes it easy to deal with stains!
Before cleaning up any mess on your area rug, figure out whether it's an oil- or water-based stain. Then, consult your manufacturer's care guide.
Some stains will wipe away with a simple cloth, while others will require a more comprehensive approach.
