Here’s how to keep your rug in tip-top shape:
1.First, understand quality, and buy the best you can afford. Weight does not translate to quality, its density, how closely the fibers are woven together, that counts. A simple test is to bend the sample backwards. If you see a lot of blank space on the card, that means the density is low.
2.Vacuum several times a week. Some people sprinkle a little baking soda on the rug before they vacuum, but it can sometimes be hard to get up. Make sure you remove beater bars if you have them, because they can damage the rug.
Keep your vacuum in good working order, too, so it can do its job properly by replacing air filters or emptying bags.
3.Professionally clean the rug regularly. Vacuuming picks up surface, dirt but doesn’t have the kind of power needed for deep cleaning. Pollutants and other undesirable substances (such as insect fragments) get trapped into the fibers and stay there until scrubbed out.
By the way, most manufacturers have a clause stating that the carpet needs to be deep cleaned regularly.
4.Wipe spills immediately. Don’t allow a stain to set.
5.Place area rugs or mats at entrances so people can wipe their feet or take off their shoes before entering.
