If you want to add a splash of color to a room, an area rug is a great option. You can go out and purchase a rug in almost any shape and size that you want. You can also choose from a wide array of colors and patterns. There is a rug to fit in just about any room in your house. The best thing about an area rug is that they are not permanent and you can move them where you want or replace them to change the look of the room. They are also a really great way to add some comfort to certain areas of the house. If you have hard flooring in your home you still might want to be able to lay down or walk on cushion. This is where an area rug comes into play and can add exactly what you would need. The problem that some people have with their area rug is how to take care of them. They don’t know what to do about keeping them clean so that they continue to look good and last.
 

Carpet Care 2000 Outlines Area Rug Cleaning Tips

Get the Ground in Dirt Out Of the Rug: The first tip that you want to make sure you use is to keep the dirt off the rug. The rug is in a room and you will be walking over the top of it leaving dirt and debris deposits. You want to make sure that you use your vacuum on a regular basis. The vacuum is a great way to get the dirt off the top of the rug. The rug will be full of dirt and if you let the dirt stay it can start to damage the rug. It will also stamp down the rug making it less comfortable. The vacuum is only going to get the dirt that is on the surface so there is more that needs to be done.
Avoid Sun Damage to Area Rugs: Another problem that you might have when you use an area rug in your house is with the sun. The rug is placed in a particular location and left there. The problem is that if the rug in in the path of a window that is allowing hours of sunlight it can cause damage to the rug. The sun will start to bleach out the colors on the rug just in the spot that the sun is hitting. That will leave it looking uneven and not the beautiful addition you bought it for. You want to try and avoid the direct sunlight or close the blinds when the sun is peaking through.
Rotate Area Rugs: You also want to make sure that you rotate the rug. You want to give it the best chance to wear out at the same rate. If you allow the rug to sit in the same location it will wear out faster in specific areas. This can be where you walk the most while the rest is left under a table. Be sure to rotate the rug in a regular basis to even out the wear and tear.
