PROTECT RUGS IN HIGH TRAFFIC AREAS

PROTECT RUGS IN HIGH TRAFFIC AREAS

Protecting your flooring in high traffic places (such as entryways, hallways, and in front of furniture) by covering it with a rug is a great idea. However, how do you protect the rug? Is it just doomed to get destroyed? While it may seem like an impossible task, it’s actually not that difficult to protect your rugs by following these simple tips.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT MATERIAL
It might seem like the most important choice when choosing a rug is choosing the right color and pattern (and choosing a color that will mask dirt is important). However, the type of material is much more important in preserving the carpet for the long haul. You want to choose a material that is durable and long lasting. Especially in high traffic areas, the type of rug you choose can make a huge difference in how long it will last. Nylon and wool carpets can be good choices, as they offer a very durable material that can withstand heavy traffic. Stay away from more delicate materials, such as silk rugs.

STOP DIRT AT THE SOURCE
One of the best ways to protect your rugs is to reduce the amount of dirt and moisture that enters the home. Using walk-off mats at your entryways will help to eliminate much of the dirt that gets tracked in on your shoes. Have everyone wipe off mud, snow, or water before entering the home. This simple precautionary method can be a very effective way to keep your rugs clean. If possible, you might even consider removing your shoes by the front door to keep any soil from coming into the home.

VACUUM OFTEN
Frequent vacuuming is an essential part of caring for your rugs and carpet, especially in high traffic areas. Vacuuming helps to remove dirt before it actually settles into the fibers, where it becomes much harder to remove. The more traffic an area endures, the more often it should be vacuumed. This may even mean vacuuming daily in order to keep dirt and soil to a minimum.

TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION
Areas that are subject to a lot of traffic are also more likely to experience spills and accidents. If a spill does occur, be sure to take immediate action in cleaning the area, before it has a chance to set in and stain. If necessary, apply stain or spot remover such as Chem-Dry Stain Extinguisher to the affected area. The sooner you take action, the less likely it is that the spill will soak into the rug and leave a stain. It is also beneficial to have a professional protectant applied to your rugs as well to make clean up even easier.

UTILIZE PROFESSIONAL CLEANERS
Vacuuming and removing stains isn’t enough for rugs in high traffic area. They should be treated by a professional to get a deep clean and last longer. With the proper care, you can keep your rugs and your home looking bright and clean. Chem-Dry professionals are trained to clean virtually all types of rugs, from Oriental to Persian, using specialized tools and equipment designed for whatever kind of rug you have.
