It’s unfortunate but time and time again here at Arizona Oriental we see rugs coming to us for cleaning that have suffered from uneven wear and tear. Wear and tear is not something that magically cleans out of the rug because the fibers in the wear areas are worn more than the fibers on other parts of the rug.
My tip of the day is quite simple. Remember to turn your rug 180 degrees so that the everyday traffic path can be more evenly distributed over your rug. We recommend this practice to be done every 6 months. Perhaps you can include this in your spring and fall deep cleaning when your cleaning gal is washing windows, wiping the baseboards, etc. Of course another ideal time is when we take your rug to our shop for deep cleaning, we can assist you in turning the rug when we deliver it back to you.
Taking a few extra steps with the care of your rug(s) will help insure that your rugs look their best for extended periods.
Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floor and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
