KEEP YOUR RUGS LOOKING GREAT BETWEEN CLEANINGS
All rugs need to be cared for regularly to maintain their beauty. No matter the fiber, pile, weave, shape or size of your rug, attending to these small steps regularly will help your area rugs last longer, maintain its value, and preserve its vibrancy:
Sweep your hard surface floors beneath area rugs often. This helps protect the rug’s fibers from dirt that will eventually work its way deep into the primary backing.
Vacuum the rug at least once per week to prevent dirt from being ground into the pile. Every other month, vacuum the back of the rug every other month.
Invest in a good quality vacuum, preferably one that provides HEPA filtration. This will not only remove dirt but also helps prevents dust mites, moths, and carpet beetles from harming your rug.
Change your HVAC filters often to reduce the amount of dust in the air.
Place a shoe rack next to the primary door you use to enter your house, and leave shoes at the door. Outdoor cultch sticks to the bottom of shoes and is easily ground into carpet fibers breaking and crushing them.
