Proper and regular care of your rug is essential to maintain its original texture and appearance. It can add years of life to your rugs. If not cleaned regularly, loose dirt and soils are buried deep into the rug, especially in high traffic areas, causing damage to the rug fiber and adding to the dullness of its appearance. Vacuuming helps to remove dirt particles. For best results, use a vacuum cleaner with beater bars and good suction.

Recommended steps to remove food and beverage spills:

  • Immediately scoop up as much of the spill as possible. Do not rub. Remove excess moisture with clean, white absorbent cloth or paper towel.
  • Rinse the stain with warm water and blot with clean white cloth or paper towels. Press down firmly to remove as much moisture as possible. Repeat until no stain is evident on cloth or towel.
  • If stain remains, clean the stain with a mild liquid soap and water or rug cleaner. Do not use strong detergents. When completely dry, vacuum the pile to restore texture.

These steps can be utilized when dealing with pet urine. For the alternative solution, a professional dry clean is recommended.
