Our monthly blog’s focus this month is on how you can maintain the quality of your home’s area rugs. Area rugs are a popular addition to Reno homes, especially for high traffic areas to protect the carpet. But how do you maintain the overall quality of those area rugs over time? With the proper care and attention, you can maintain the look of your area rugs even in high traffic areas. Here are some tips to help you care for your Reno home’s area rugs.

Select The Right Materials

When it comes to selecting area rugs to put in certain areas, look and color aren’t everything. Having rugs with the right material in high traffic areas is vital for their longevity. Be sure to choose rugs with material that is durable and able to withstand high levels of traffic. Area rugs made from materials like silk should be placed in bedrooms and other low traffic areas. Area rugs made from wool are great options for high traffic areas due to their water and stain repellency as well as their durability.

Develop A Plan

The best protection is prevention. Ensure better protection for your area rugs by reducing the amount of dirt and water that enters your Reno home. A solution for this that costs absolutely nothing is taking off your shoes before you enter your home. Another solution is to invest in mats outside of doors to track dirt and other particles. Consider the rotation of area rugs in high traffic areas, especially in the winter months. This can save a lot of money down the road from having to buy new area rugs that were exposed to excessive moisture.

Vacuum Often

This might seem like a no-brainer, but many people forget to vacuum their area rugs. While vacuuming carpet is important, area rugs serve as traps for dust and dirt from spreading to the carpet. The cleaner your area rugs are, the more particles they can trap and the cleaner your Reno home remains. Higher traffic areas may need to be vacuumed daily.

Take Immediate Action

Area rugs in high traffic areas can often be the sites of mishaps and spills. Whenever a spill does happen on your area rug, take immediate action to clean the stain. Focus on gently blotting the spill and avoid any scrubbing or drying as this will set in the stain even more. We are no stranger to knowing that even pet urine accidents can happen on area rugs. For advanced removal of area rug stains, trust Chem-Dry of Northern Nevada’s professional area rug cleaning.
