Preventative Care

Start by investing in doormats and placing them throughout your home. Have friends and family members use them when entering your home. You should also ask visitors to remove outdoor shoes before walking across your rug. It’s important to minimize the amount of dirt tracked onto your flooring, as dirt particles can damage rug and carpet fibers. Here are some other simple preventative maintenance tips:

  • Place carpet protectors underneath all furniture legs
  • Move or rotate rugs occasionally to reduce exposure to direct UV sunlight
  • Take care when moving heavy furniture

While keeping preventative maintenance in mind, you should also develop a regular care routine. This should include regularly vacuuming your area rug using a manufacturer-approved appliance. If your area rug experiences light to medium traffic, vacuuming it once or twice a week should be sufficient. If it experiences heavy traffic, however, you may want to vacuum more frequently.

Professional Cleaning

We also recommend that you have your carpet cleaned professionally throughout the year using the hot water extraction method. An alternative is to shampoo your rug yourself, although you should make sure you follow your manufacturer’s cleaning guidelines. Consider a professional cleaning at least once or twice a year.
