To keep both carpet and rugs looking clean, take your shoes off at the door to avoid tracking dirt into the house. Treat large area rugs just as you would wall-to-wall carpet by vacuuming frequently. If you have pets, use a stiff brush to remove pet hair from your rug. Rotate rugs once or twice per year to avoid one particular area receiving more damage than the rest. You can also rotate rugs to help hide stubborn stains.
Smaller rugs may be shaken out and beaten to remove dirt. If you hang the rug over a rail to beat it, hang it at an angle to avoid creating a crease. Rugs may be steam cleaned just like a carpet; vacuum first, use the steamer, then dry the rug with fans or an air conditioner. Be sure to read each rug’s label for special cleaning instructions, because some may only be cleaned professionally.
