The first step is to establish a preventative maintenance routine that’s easy for the entire family to follow.

REMOVE OUTDOOR SHOES

Remove outdoor shoes before walking across your rugs so you don’t track dirt inside the house.

WEEKLY VACUUMING

Daily to weekly vacuuming with a manufacturer-approved appliance is sometimes all you need to keep your area rug looking and feeling great!

DEALING WITH STAINS

No matter how careful you are and how much you stick to your care and maintenance routine, your area rug will still most likely fall victim to the occasional spill. Fortunately, many of our area rugs are sold with stain-resistant technology built into the fibers. 

Before you start to clean the spill, establish whether it’s an oil-based stain or a water-based stain. Then, consult your manufacturer's cleaning guidelines. Consider investing in a manufacturer-approved cleaning product or two as well! Finally, consult our stain removal guide below.
