Start by investing in a vacuum so that you can help keep your area rug clean on a daily basis.

Preventative

Preventative maintenance for an area rug all starts with establishing a vacuuming routine. By vacuuming your rugs daily, or every couple of days, you can help to ensure that dirt and debris do damage the fibers. You should also encourage visitors to remove their shoes before stepping foot on your new area rug.
