Vacuum Three to Five Times a Week

Vacuuming is probably one of the best ways to ensure that your rug is clean and in good shape. Vacuuming helps eliminate any dust and dirt stuck on your rug fibers, which can result in discoloration and the clumping together of the rug fibers. Vacuuming greatly helps keep your rug in the best condition too as it removes and prevents dust and dirt build-up that can damage it in the long run. The best frequency when it comes to vacuuming is three to five times for rugs in heavily used areas such as the living room. Other less used areas are good with vacuuming once or twice per week.

Prevention is Better than Cure

Preventing spills and stains on your rug may sound like an impossible dream but in reality you can make some helpful adjustments to at least minimize these unfortunate occurrences. For example, setting up ground rules and policies at home which affects the risk of making a mess on your rug can be a big help. Making it a point for visitors to wipe their shoes well before entering the room or directing your kids not to eat or drink near the rug can really have a big impact in minimizing the rug cleaning problems that you will have to face and in turn help it stay constantly clean.

Move Your Rugs Around

This is one tip that may have a big effect in the condition and longevity of your rug. Moving your rugs around the house can sound like a very simple thing to do but it can really improve your rug’s state. Moving the rugs around can help avoid one particular area from being subjected to constant wear and tear. This wear and tear can be a source of cleaning and maintenance problems for your rug. Trying to move a rug in your study room with a rug in your living room after a few months can balance things out and ensure not one particular rug receive a constant wear and tear from regular use.
