Area Rugs Care & Maintenance

Protect your area rugs with these care and maintenance tips from the experts at Floortrends in Peterborough, ON.

Preventative Maintenance

Regular care and maintenance will keep your area rugs plush and fresh for years to come. We recommend you place doormats at entryways to collect dirt before it trails into the house. Frequent vacuuming will get rid of the dirt that makes it into your rugs before it can damage the fibers.

Placing furniture on protective pads will prevent rug fibers from being crushed. And to prevent sunlight from affecting the color of your area rug, rotate your rug once in a while. This will keep it from becoming discolored.

cleaning spills & stains

No matter how careful you are, eventually you're going to spill something on your area rug. The key to preventing a spill from becoming a stain is to clean it right away. The longer a spill sits, the deeper it will stain your rug fibers. If you're unsure how to clean a stain, check your manufacturer's guide.

You should also consider getting your area rugs professionally cleaned every few years to revitalize their colors.
