Daily Area Rug Care & Maintenance

Treat your favorite area rugs just like premium carpeting, with the greatest focus on removing particles from the surface efficiently and often. Invest in a suitable vacuum cleaner that matches your rug pile height and construction. Vacuum your rug regularly, at least once or twice a week, to prevent abrasion and restore appearance. Use entry mats to prevent dirt from the reaching your rugs and have residents, guests, and kids remove footwear by the door. Be sure to trim pet nails and claws, brush pets regularly, and complete house-training with pets to reduce pet-related issues to your stunning rugs. These valuable steps will greatly reduce daily wear and tear! 

Dealing With Area Rug Spills & Stains

Although rugs will help prevent accidents from hitting your hard surface floors, you will still want to treat spills with warm water as soon as they hit the rug surface to prevent permanent stains from forming and moisture absorption in the rug. Remove any solid material with a spoon, starting from the outside of the spill and working in. Blot the liquid stain with paper towels or a white towel, using warm water to remove the stain. If warm water does not remove the stain from your rug, consult your manufacturer’s guidelines to find a gentle approved cleaner that will maintain your rug warranty. If a stain persists on the rug, reach out to LMK Floors and our professional cleaning service may be able to help!
