Rugs have a range of uses including reducing noise in your home, adding warmth and comfort into the room or even just to add a pop of colour to an otherwise neutral room. Here at Welch Mill Carpets Warrington, we know just how important a rug can be to a room and we’ve some up with a few ways to help keep your rug in the best condition possible.

  • Always read the manufacturing instructions for rug care
  • Shake off larger pieces of excess dust and debris outside before vacuuming
  • Frequently vacuum the rug on a low setting to avoid pulling any fibers or fringes
  • Straighten out any kinks, folds or curls as these can create premature wear on the rug
  • Once the rug starts to show wear on certain sections, rotate it if you can to make sure it doesn’t wear more on one side than the other
  • Use rug pads/cushions to help protect your flooring from any damage. They also prevent the rug from slipping and moving
  • Try to avoid using harsh commercial cleaning chemicals and solutions that could damage the rug
  • If you do need to use a strong cleaning chemical to try to get rid of stains or spotting, pre-test on a hidden or less inconspicuous part of the rug to see if it does any damage
