Rotating your rug every few months will help relieve areas from excessive wear. Packing and shipping may cause temporary creases in area rugs. To remove them back-roll/reverse roll your rug and allow time for the creases to relax. Direct sunlight will cause the colors in your area rug to fade over time. Long term exposure to humid weather can be harmful to area rugs. The cotton warp and weft foundation of an area rug can breakdown when exposed to excessive humidity. Avoid placing plants directly on top of area rugs and immediately blot dry any water spillage. Brushing is the best way to remove stubborn pet hairs that the vacuum misses. For short pile area rugs, use a carpet brush or carpet sweeper. For longer pile a carpet rake works well. Sweeping works best for outdoor rugs. The sturdy pile of an indoor-outdoor rug does not trap dirt as readily as other area rugs. For rugs that are relatively easy to handle, bring them outdoors and shake vigorously to remove excess debris. Hang over an outdoor railing and beat with the back of a broom or rug beater, varying in vigor based on the construction and condition of the rug. Area rugs placed in high traffic areas will wear faster than those in lesser tread-upon locations. Rotating a rug every few months will distribute any wear and fading evenly.Cleaning & Removing Stains: Quick action following a spill is essential in order to keep a permanent stain from setting into your rug. For liquid spills, use a clean, undyed cloth and press firmly around the spill to absorb as much as possible. Do not rub! This will cause the stain to set deeper into the rug, making it harder to remove and increasing the likelihood that it will reappear. Make a solution of water, white vinegar, and mild detergent. Apply the foam that rises to the top of the solution on the stained area with a clean cloth. Finish using a damp, clean cloth to absorb any residue.. For lighter stains or spills on synthetic yarns, sponge clean the area with cold water and mild detergent. For hard to remove stains, professional rug cleaning is recommended.Care for Wool: Wool rugs may shed as a natural consequence of how they are made. However, this shedding will gradually diminish with proper vacuuming. Use a high-quality rug pad under your carpet to reduce surface friction. Vacuum 1-2 times a week for the first few weeks using a low pressure vacuum cleaner without beater bars. Do not pull "stray" loops. Always cut them back with scissors.Care for Viscose: Viscose, or art silk, has the same soft, luxurious look and feel as silk, but at a much more affordable price. A carpet sweeper is best for 100 percent viscose rugs, but if you do use a vacuum, set the power to low and disengage the beater bars. Viscose is extremely absorbent so remove stains using a damp cloth and a mild cleanser. For tough stains, use the stain solution suggested above and gently apply the foam that rises to the top to the stained area. Blot with a clean damp cloth to finish. Try to keep a viscose rug in a cool and dry location. Excessive moisture can cause the yarns to yellow or the dyes to bleed, while high heat can cause the rug yarns to shrink.… read more
