Tips to Help Maintain & Protect Your Area Rugs

Your area rugs are an important investment in your home and need to be properly cared for and maintained in order to keep them looking clean and fresh.

Here are some basic area rug cleaning and care tips that you should follow to keep your rugs clean and prolong their life, courtesy of your friendly neighborhood cleaning service in South Portland.

Additionally, we recommend that you hire a professional carpet cleaning company for area rug cleaning services when needed.

Using Rug Pads

Placing a rug pad under your area rug will help extend the life of your rug by protecting it from wear and keeping it from sliding around the room. Regardless of the size of your area rug and whether your rug is placed on hardwood floor or carpeting, using a pad under the rug is an important care tip.

Rotating Your Rugs

Another area rug care tip is to rotate your rug 180 degrees at least once per year. This will help your rug to wear more evenly as sunlight and traffic patterns can cause discoloration and uneven wear that even professional area rug cleaning cannot undo.

Vacuuming or Shaking Out your Rugs

Because dirt and sand act as abrasives that can break down the fibers of your rug, the most important area rug cleaning and care tip is to regularly vacuum or shake out your rug. This will remove surface and embedded dirt and restore life to the fibers.

Removing Stains

If any spills or stains should occur, it is important to follow the appropriate stain removal procedures and to begin removing the stain as quickly as possible after it occurs. For stains that have had time to sit or those that you are unable to remove using a basic stain removal process, you may need to call a professional area rug cleaning company to treat and remove the stains.
