Ultimate Rug Care Guide

Tips for Maintaining the Beauty of Your Rugalia Rugs

Rugs are not just functional pieces; they’re investments that add warmth, style, and personality to our homes. To ensure that your Rgalia rugs remain beautiful, proper care and maintenance are essential. In this blog post, we’ll share expert tips and advice on how to care for your rugs effectively.

1. Vacuum Regularly: Regular vacuuming is key to keeping your rugs clean and free of dirt and debris. Use the flathead of a good quality high watt. vacuum (NOT the brush side) to avoid brushing the rug and causing excessive wool fluff.

2. Rotate Periodically: To prevent uneven wear and fading, rotate your rugs periodically, especially in high-traffic areas. This helps distribute foot traffic and sunlight exposure more evenly, prolonging the life of your rugs. We recommend rotating once a month.

3. Spot Clean: Attend to spills as soon as you can. Accidents happen, but quick action can prevent spills from becoming permanent stains. Blot spills with a white paper towel to absorb as much liquid as possible. Apply DRY WONDER Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner to the affected area, work the powder into the stain with your fingers (do not brush) and allow approx. 60 minutes for the powder to crystallise. Avoid rubbing the stain, as this can spread it further. After an hour, vacuum the affected area with your flathead vacuum. For more hardened stains, repeat the process as many times as is required.

4. Professional Cleaning: While regular vacuuming and spot cleaning can help maintain your rugs, professional cleaning is occasionally needed to remove deep-seated dirt and stains. Schedule a professional cleaning annually, or more frequently for rugs in heavily trafficked areas or those in households with pets or allergies. In Cape Town, we recommend Town & Country (021 461 5288) for all rug-related cleaning services.

With proper care and maintenance, your rugs can remain beautiful and functional for generations to come. By following these simple tips, you can protect your investment and enjoy the comfort and style that a Rgalia rug brings to your home.
