Maintaining your rugs or carpet mats increases their durability. We know that rugs provide us with comfort, safety, and insulation we well as help in soundproofing the home. The basic red- striped and brown pocha barely adds beauty to your kitchen; but with kitchen rugs also known as kitchen mats, you can cover the entire surface of your kitchen floor as well as make your kitchen look good.
Our rugs and runners are washable and designed for living rooms, bedrooms, and kitchens. However, maintaining the tight weaves of your rug and its finishing requires good and regular care.
We have a few tips you could consider when looking after the health of your rugs:
- Basic care begins with keeping rugs in a dry and cool place. Avoid storing them in damp or humid areas, as this can lead to fungal growth. It is not recommended to place rugs in plastic or in tight spaces, since this causes damage to their fibre. Roll the rug or carpet and wrap it in cotton fabric to protect it from dust and moths.
- Vacuum the rug regularly to remove dirt. Dust the rug every 6-12 months and avoid exposing your rug to direct sunlight, as this can cause fading. Do not use harsh chemicals or cleaning tools on the rug. A professional cleaning may be necessary every 1-2 years depending on the uses of the carpet.
- If you have pets at home, you will have to take extra care of the rugs. You will need to keep a lint roller or tape to remove pet fur, use the vacuum more frequently and groom your pets regularly to prevent scratches and stains.
- Rotate the rug or carpet in the room every 6-12 months as this will help even out the wearing of the rugs. Make sure to add a rug pad to protect the backing and prevent slips. All our area rugs come with a sturdy jute backing which helps keep the rug shipshape.
The better the quality of the rug, the easier it gets to maintain it. You can shop with us for carpets that have pleasing designs as well as multiple sizes. Check out our collections of area rugs ranging from Mashael and Shiraz to Portland and Comfort, and get one for your home today!
