• Rug Care Tips

    General Tips by Unitex Rugs

    • Rotate your rug every six months to reduce uneven wear and tear
    • Use a rug pad to extend the life of your rug, prevent sliding and to protect your floors
    • Have your rugs professionally cleaned every three to six years, depending on the level of use

    • Lightly vacuum once or twice a week. Use the hard floor attachment and the lightest possible setting
    • Avoid powerful vacuums that may pull fibres loose from the base of the rug
    • Vacuum the base of your rug occasionally, as dirt can accumulate here as well

    Spill and Stains
    • Blot spills with a paper towel or colourless cloth, and do not wipe or scrub
    • When spills may cause a stain, you can immediately apply a small amount of mild soap and warm water
    • Blot excess liquid with paper towel or colourless cloth, removing as much soap as possible as residue can act as a magnet for dirt
    • Make sure you choose a very mild soap free from any bleach or hydrogen peroxide
    • In most cases, warm water and a small amount of soap will take care of spills if attended to quickly
    • For further cleaning tips, please contact your rug cleaning professional
