Infographic: 10 TIPS TO KEEP YOUR RUGS TIP-TOP!-RugSmart
The benefits of area rugs extend far beyond style. Comfort, warmth, noise reduction, are some of the most common benefits of carpets. But even after taking every precaution, your carpet may become the victim of spills, drops and other accidents. These simple steps will keep the rug looking clean and preserve their fiber.
First and foremost, you should vacuum your carpets at least once or twice a week depending on the foot traffic. If you own a four-pawed pal, you can even brush the pet hair and re-vacuum. You can also sprinkle some baking soda before vacuuming as they act as deodorizers. As the dust can find its way under anything, what you can do is turn the rug over and vacuum its back. This will help to remove some trapped dust particles. If you use detergent to remove colored spots and other spills, ensure that it is completely and throughly removed or they will attract and retain more dust particles.
