Rugs should be vacuumed regularly to remove dust and dirt that may damage the fibers and foundation of the rug. It is recommended that the suction-only feature of the vacuum cleaner be used.
A rug should be rotated once or twice a year to ensure even wear. In high traffic areas rotation should be more frequent. The frequent rotation of a rug will equalize the effect of the sun.
Padding is recommended for all rugs on hard surfaces to prevent sliding. For rugs placed on wall-to-wall carpet, padding will prevent wrinkles.
Cleaning by a professional rug cleaner is recommended every two to four years, depending on the amount of traffic your rug experiences.
