Area Rugs

Caring for Your Rug:

  • Rotate your rugs every few months to a year (depending on traffic) to equalize wear and the effects of exposure to sunlight.

  • Keeping your rug from exposure to direct sunlight will protect it from fading.

  • When using over hardwood floors, realize that your floor is naturally affected by exposure to ultraviolet light/sunlight. Moving rugs on a regular basis will help minimize discoloration under the rug (this is true with furniture, as well).

  • Be sure to vacuum your rug (using an appropriate vacuum cleaner, set on the correct height setting) on a regular basis as needed to remove soil and restore vibrance to your rug. DO NOT vacuum the fringe—doing so will cause damage over time (you can sweep the fringe with a broom). DO NOT vacuum against the nap of the rug as this will press soil into the rug.

  • Depending on what type of rug you have, you’ll want to have it professionally cleaned every two to five years, again depending on traffic. Carpet Specialists provides state-of-the-art cleaning services when that time comes.

How you deal with spills will be based on what type of rug you have.

Some general guidelines for spot-cleaning your rugs, as recommended by the World Floor Covering Association (www.wfca.org) are as follows:

  • A water spill should be dried immediately with a hairdryer set on a warm temperature. Try to dry both sides of your rug if possible.

  • In case of a soft drink or alcohol spill, apply salt or baking soda to the spot for a few minutes to absorb the color of the drink, then vacuum off the salt or baking soda. After vacuuming, use a wet towel to gently wipe the stain in the direction of the nap (the direction the pile faces). You can wet the towel with regular or carbonated water. Be gentle; do not scrub your rug.

  • For old stains, take the rug to a professional handmade rug retailer. Do not try to clean old stains yourself.
