Know What Type of Rug You Have
One of the most important things you can do to ensure your rugs look great and last a long time is to have a good understanding of what type of area rug you have. Knowing this will allow you to make the right decisions regarding the care and cleaning efforts you make. For example, rugs made with wool will need to be treated differently than rugs made with cotton. Synthetic fibers will also have a unique approach. If you have an antique area rug, that too will need to have special care paid to it to make sure it looks great for generations to come.
Annual Professional Cleaning
All area rugs need to be deep cleaned on a regular basis. Most rug manufacturers recommend a proper cleaning at least once per year. For rugs that are in high-traffic areas, or those that are in homes with pets, smokers, or other things that could cause the carpet to get dirty fast, it is best to have them cleaned every six months. Most people assume that the only reason to deep clean rugs is to make them look nicer. While that is certainly the primary benefit, there is much more to it as well. Deep cleaning carpets removes the dirt and other debris that has been pushed down near the ends of the fibers. This can cause the rug fibers to be damaged over time, which can dramatically reduce the life of the rug. Regular cleaning will help your rugs to look great long into the future.
Repair Damaged Areas
If your rug is damaged in any way, it is important to have it professionally repaired as soon as possible. Rugs commonly start to fray around the edges, and in some cases, can have spots in the middle that lose material. In addition to looking bad, this creates a weak point in the rug itself. Over time, the damage will continue to spread to other areas. Taking action as soon as you notice any type of damage on your rugs will help prevent further issues from developing.
