Two Easy Ways to Prevent Premature Wear on Your Area Rugs!
Hi folks! Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott AZ here again! I can’t tell you how many rugs come into us on a daily basis that have huge traffic and wear patterns on the edges or straight through the middle. These can be difficult to remove completely as foot traffic wears down the fibers of area rugs, slowly grinding them away. But don’t fret, I have some tips for you!
Want to know what the EASIEST way to take care of your area rugs and prevent premature wear and tear? It’s super easy! You just need to turn your rug 180 degrees periodically - typically about every 6 months. This makes it so that you distribute everyday traffic patterns more evenly throughout the rug, making sure it isn’t concentrated in the same area.
My second tip for preventing premature wear? REGULAR VACUUMING! Depending on the level of traffic in your home (or just on the area rug), you should be vacuuming at least once a week to even vacuuming every day! Frequent vacuuming helps to remove the dry soil that your rug picks up, making it so that it doesn’t work its way down into the base of the rug’s fibers. Remember, dry soil is like sandpaper and grinds fibers away over time!
Of course, there are many ways you can help preserve and care for your area rugs between professional deep cleanings with us here at Arizona Oriental. But staying on top of regular maintenance for your area rugs will help to keep them looking wonderful for years to come!
Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floor and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
