Minimizing Area Rug Wear and Tear

As you use your rug, wear and tear is inevitable. You can greatly reduce this wear by rotating your rug on a periodic basis, especially in heavy traffic areas. Every year or two is recommended. Should your furniture leave indentations in the pile of your rug, you might try the following: Brush any indentation, or crushed pile, in the same direction as that of your rugs pile using a soft bristle brush. Using tap water, moisten the area with a soft spray and brush the pile again in the opposite direction. In time, it should stand up again. Ensure the area is completely dry before placing any objects on it.
