A good-quality rug that is well-maintained should last 10 years or more. If you want to ensure it actually keeps its looks and integrity for that long, you need to give it the proper care. Maintaining your rug is important for several reasons - chief of them being that it protects your wallet and the environment. The right cleaning helps to safeguard your rug investment, which means it won’t have to be replaced before its time.
Cleaning your carpet the right way is easier than you think. As a rule of thumb, you should vacuum at least once a week.
This figure is flexible, however: the more foot traffic over your rug, the more you should vacuum.
The general formula is:
VACUUM DAILY IN
HIGH-TRAFFIC OR PET AREAS
VACUUM TWICE WEEKLY
IN MEDIUM-TRAFFIC AREAS
VACUUM WEEKLY IN
Even with regular maintenance, we’d recommend professional cleaning should be done once to twice a year to remove embedded dirt and grime from the rug or carpet.
Following these rules can help you keep your rug looking pristine for years. If you want more advice on how to clean your custom rug, reach out to us for assistance.
