Where to start
Your area rug is bright, colorful, and gorgeous. Keep it that way with regular care and maintenance. To start, place doormats at your home's entryways to keep dirt on the outside where it belongs instead of trailing across your rugs. You may also want to place your heavy furniture on floor protectors to prevent damaging your rug's fibers.
Keeping your area rugs fresh and colorful for years to come takes a bit of regular maintenance. You should vacuum your rug at least once a week, but rugs in high-traffic areas like the living room may require more attention. Make sure your vacuum cleaner is approved for area rugs, otherwise it may damage the fibers.
You may also want to have your rugs deep-cleaned every few years, especially if their color starts to fade.
spills & stains
No matter how careful you are, eventually someone is going to stain something on your area rugs. Luckily, most modern rugs have built-in stain resistance technology, giving you a fighting chance against tougher spills like red wine.
Most spills can be cleaned up with just a damp towel, but more serious spills and stains may require a cleaning product specifically designed for rug fibers.
