Treating your rug properly will not only maintain its quality and longevity but in some cases, increase its value. While you may have never considered your area rug an investment, for some business owners and homeowners, that’s exactly what their rugs happen to be.
Whether you have an area rug that gets walked over constantly, or you own a fine, area rug that’s the centrepiece of your home, you should be giving it the treatment it deserves.

Area Rug Cleaning Ottawa: What Are Some Lesser Known Rug Cleaning Hacks?
For regular treatment and care of your rug, here are a few rug cleaning maintenance hacks to consider:
- Rotate Your Rug: Depending on where your area rug is located, both traffic and sunlight can wear down the surface, and the vibrancy of the dyes. That’s why you should rotate your rug every once and awhile.
- Underpads: Stabilize and protect the shape of your rug, with the use of an underpad. As a result, you may extend the rug’s life, while maintaining its value.
- Potted Plants: They may look nice, but all it takes is one crack to leak a harmful combination of soil and water onto your area rug.
Area Rug Cleaning Ottawa: What’s The Best Method for Vacuuming?
First, determine the direction of the fibres by running your hand back and forth on the rug. Avoid getting dirt trapped underneath the fibres by vacuuming and leaving the rug fibres running in their natural direction.
But before you vacuum, check the beater bar and make sure it’s just grazing the top of the rug and not digging into the fibres too much.
Also, pay close attention to the rug’s fringes, as they can get caught in your vacuum, and damage the appearance of the rug.
Rug Cleaning Ottawa: How Often Should I Have My Rugs Cleaned Professionally?
You should have your rugs cleaned every two to five years. Even with proper care and maintenance, rug fibres wear down over time, which make your rug look old and dated. With professional service every 2-5 years, you maintain your rugs quality, appearance, and depending on the type of area rug, you could increase its value.
