Here are some ways to keep your rugs clean and in good shape:

  1. Have them professionally cleaned.
  2. DIY cleaning solution: soak in equal parts water & vinegar.
  3. Vacuum the rug habitually, especially during hotter months when you leave windows open.
  4. Dampen a cloth with cleaner or stain remover. lay the cloth on the carpet for about an hour. Blot the damp area with a dry cloth.
