WHEN TO GET YOUR RUGS CLEANED: Let your eyes judge when your rugs need cleaning, instead of specific intervals. A rug in the bedroom may not need cleaning for 10 years while the one in the entry may need cleaning every 2 years.

VACUUMING: Vacuum your area rugs frequently; dont vacuum the fringe, and dont use the beater bar. 

ROTATING: Rotate your rugs at least once a year for even wear and fading. 

SPILLS: Clean spills ASAP. First pick up the spilled substance with paper towels; then spray water or club soda on the pilled area and blot extensive with paper towels. Make sure you dry the rug properly. Detailed care instructions.
