We all have rugs in our homes and because they can be an investment, it's smart to know how to take care of them and get the most for your money. Believe it or not, it is possible to keep your rug looking as good as it did the day you rolled it out onto your floor! Here are a few tips for keeping your rug looking brand new:
1. Vacuum regularly! Doing this will keep the embedded dirt that can get into your rug out. We recommend taking the vacuum to your rug once a week, especially when they are new. On a regular pile rug, vacuuming once a week on the normal setting should do the trick. For a braided rug, use the highest setting. For a shag rug, shake and then use a handheld vacuum for the rest.
2. Use a rug pad! Not only does this help with unwanted sliding or folding, it prevents the rug from aging prematurely. It also makes vacuuming easier because your rug will stay in place.
3. Machine Wash. Throwing your rug into the wash is actually harmless, as long as your rug is cotton and not a large size. Be sure to use warm water!
