Consumer corner

For this Consumer Corner we asked furniture shoppers about maintenance and care of area rugs. Vacuuming is the most popular way to maintain an area rug.

 

Care tips for retailers to provide to consumers
1. Vacuum rugs on a regular basis. Fringe should be hand-vacuumed.
2. When spills occur, blot the excess, then dilute the area with water and blot. Don't rub.
3. Rugs should be removed from the home and professionally cleaned.
4. Rotate rugs once a year to ensure even wear.
