Area Rugs Care and Maintenance

Your beautiful new area rug will likely take lots of beatings from children, pets, spills, and foot traffic, so a regular regimen of care and maintenance is necessary to keep it beautiful.

Preventive measures

  • Place doormats inside and outside exterior doors to prevent dirt, sand and debris from being brought into the house
  • Encourage family and visitors to use the doormats to protect all your flooring and especially your new area rug.
  • Get in the habit of taking off your shoes at the door. Invite your friends and family to do the same.
  • Place carpet protectors under all furniture legs.
  • Read your manufacturer's care instructions for added information on how to take care of the rug.

RoutineCare

  • Vacuum the rug regularly, as often as three times a week if it is heavily used.
  • Be careful when vacuuming a shag rug so that yarns from the rug don’t get caught in the vacuum.
  • Get a carpet rake for your shag rug to loosen up any debris before vacuuming.
  • Take care of stains and spills immediately. Many area rugs have stain-resistant technology and you can soak up the spill with a clean cloth. But others require you to check the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Take care of snags by snipping off the yarn flush with the rug, carefully avoiding cutting any other yarns.
  • Rotate rug occasionally to reduce exposure to uneven amounts of sunlight and wear and tear.
  • Have your area rug cleaned professionally regularly.

Some “don’ts”

  • Avoid using a vacuum that has a beater bar—it can be too harsh on your rug’s fiber.
  • Don’t dry clean your area rug.
  • Don’t use bleach on it.
