What’s the Proper Way to Hang Your Area Rug?


Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott AZ and I just wanted to share this little video talking about the proper way to hang an area rug.  If you have an area rug you’d like to hang on your wall, you aren’t alone!  Many people like to display their little Navajo rugs (and even some of their other rugs) on their walls.  However, it’s important that everyone knows the proper way to hang their rugs so they don’t end up damaging their rug.

The only proper way to hang your area rug is to have a sleeve sewn along the back of your rug.  It prevents any one part of your area rug from taking too much pressure from the weight of the area rug hanging from it.  You won’t see any stitches from the front of your rug and can remove the sleeve at any time if you decide you want it on your floor again.

It’s also easy to have a sleeve added to your rug, as it is a service that we here at Arizona Oriental provide along with our regular cleaning services!

Keep in mind you should also have a moth treatment applied to your hanging rugs to prevent moth infestations!  Hanging on the wall, your area rug is the perfect place for moths to live and not be disturbed.  They love quiet places the best, and the rug on your wall is perfect for that.  When you apply a moth treatment to your rug, you can be sure that the moths will go looking elsewhere for a food source.

Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floor and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
