Heart of Texas Chem-Dry outlines how to clean and care for area rugs.
Vacuum Area Rugs Often
One of the best things that you can do for your area rugs is to make sure that they are being vacuumed. This will help to remove the dirt and debris from the rug that is left when you walk on the area. The rugs are going to take on quite a bit of the debris and that is why it is important to remove it by vacuuming. The vacuum can get to the dirt and debris that is left on the top of the rug but cannot get the dirt that has been set deep in the rugs fibers.
Rotate Area Rugs
When you are ready to place a rug in a room you usually get a rug that is that particular size. The size and shape will matter when trying to fit in the space. The problem is that the rug is placed then left to sit in the same space. The rug will start to have high traffic areas which is why you want to make sure that you rotate the rug. You can rotate it regularly so that the wear and tear will be much more even. This will allow the rug to last a much longer amount of time.
Don’t Let Area Rugs Fade in Sunlight
When you are laying a rug you might want to consider how much natural light is coming into the area. It is best to avoid these areas when you are laying your rug down. The sun light can cause damage to the rug that you cannot reverse. The sun will actually start to bleach out the colors and that will cause the rug to look uneven. If you cannot avoid sunny areas of the house you want to try and pull the blinds so that the sun is not hitting the rug for hours a day.
