Tips for Keeping Your Area Rugs Looking Their Best

Your area rug represents a significant investment and serves as a focal point of your living spaces. As such, keeping it in the best shape possible is essential. Regular maintenance and upkeep of your rug can keep it looking fresh for years to come. Here are some simple tips that can help keep your rugs and living spaces looking their best.

Rotate Rugs Annually or Semiannually

Rug rotation is essential in making sure that your floor coverings age evenly. If one area of the rug bears the brunt of high traffic and spills, your piece will age faster. Rotating your rugs helps ensure they will age naturally and evenly. How often you should rotate depends on your lifestyle and room function. In a low traffic area, rotating once a year is enough. For a living room rug that gets a lot of foot traffic from children and pets, consider rotating every three to six months.

Act Quickly on Spills

Accidents and spills happen, but what’s most important is how quickly you react. Using clear, non-detergent soap and a little warm water, gently blot at the spill and be careful not to scrub, which can rub the stain further into the carpet’s fibers. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions regarding cleaning, including spot treatment and steam cleaning.

Vacuum Regularly

Regular vacuuming is one of the best ways to care for your area rug, as it keeps dirt and grime from getting stuck in the carpet fibers, which can give your rug a dull or dirty appearance. Daily vacuuming is ideal, especially if you have young children or pets.

Purchase Rug Pads

Rug pads are a worthwhile investment, both for comfort and in the upkeep of your floor covering. Rugs naturally slip, slide, buckle, wrinkle, and bunch, which can lead to uneven wear and tear. Pads help by keeping your rug in place and ensuring it lays nice and flat.

The Rise of Hardwood Floors and Area Rugs

The last decade has seen homeowners switch from carpet flooring to harder alternatives, such as hardwood, tile and Luxury Vinyl Tiles or Planks. Even then, they still want to use some carpet floor coverings to decorate their bare floors. Area rugs are the ideal choice to create balance, but to compensate for the lack of warmth carpets provide, homeowners demand for increased texture and pattern in their rugs.

Benefits of Hardwood

The growing use of hardwood floors in residential homes is due to several advantages that these floors offer. Hardwood floors:

·         Are easier to clean and maintain

·         Last decades when properly cleaned and maintained

·         Hold little to no allergenic materials

·         Seem more luxurious and sophisticated

·         Evoke nature appeal due to wood material

The only notable drawback of hardwood floors is the added expense of their use over carpeting floors. Also, hardwood is not popular in certain rooms, like the kitchen or the bathroom, where homeowners preferred tile floors or other materials instead.

Hard Floors and Versatility

Another one of the biggest advantages of hardwood floors and harder floors in general is versatility. Carpet floors are mostly uniform and do not have extravagant patterns that some homeowners seek. Even if you find a pattern, you will have to cover the rest of the house with it as well. A hard, bare floor allows the consumers the freedom to choose. They can choose to embrace the appeal of the bareness. They can also choose from a diversity of area rugs.

Advantages of Area Rugs

The use of area rugs alone also brings some advantages over carpeted flooring. Mainly, area rugs allow endless possibilities for satisfying the desire of consumer choice, from using rugs as striking focal points, to match them with different patterns, textures, and colors from other rugs or home decorations, and to simply to fade in the background with no specific pattern.

Also, manufacturers create most area rugs with non-cling, environmentally friendly materials that are easy to transport and clean compared to carpeting. They carry less allergens and are open to pet use.
