Basic Area Rug Care

Area rugs need the same level of care as wall-to-wall carpet, and, in some cases, require special attention.

  • If your rug is small and the label says that it is “machine washable,” shake the rug outside first, and then put it in the washing machine at the recommended temperature with a mild detergent. Tumble your rug dry at the lowest heat setting.
  • If you have a larger rug that won’t fit properly in the washing machine and is still easy to pick up, shake it outside first, then put it over an object and beat it. Next, take the rug inside and vacuum it. Another option is to take it to a professional dry-cleaner or use a professional carpet care service while they are cleaning other rugs or carpet in your home or business.
  • Area rugs with fringe require careful handling. Use gentle suction and start from the center of the carpet, vacuuming toward the fringe. Be careful not to catch the strands in the beater bar.
  • You need professional care for Oriental, Turkish, or Persian rugs as they are incredibly delicate and you want them to last for a lifetime, especially if they are heirloom-quality rugs.
