Keep Your Area Rug Looking & Feeling Great

  • Daily or weekly vacuuming (depending on the location of your rug) is the most important step you can take to keep it looking clean and new.
  • Remove outdoor shoes before walking across your rugs so you don’t track dirt inside the house and damage their fibers.
  • A quality rug pad will add extra softness and support and will also protect your hard surface flooring!

Dealing with Spills & Stains

No matter how careful you are, your area rug will likely fall victim to the occasional spill or stain. This is especially true if you have kids or pets!

Fortunately, many of our area rugs are sold with stain-resistant technology built right into the fibers. Still, it's important to properly address spills as soon as they occur. The sooner you act, the sooner you'll be able to prevent a spill from becoming a stubborn stain. But be sure to check with your manufacturer's care guidelines on dealing with both water- and oil-based stains.
