Ethan Allen Design Tip: Rug Care

(WTNH) – When it comes to area rugs, a few simple steps can help them last a lifetime. First, use a rug pad. It will improve the rug’s appearance and prevent it from slipping. The pad should ideally be one inch smaller than the rug.

Secondly, rotate rugs periodically which will allow for more even wear, especially in high traffic areas. Lastly, take care of stains quickly… and avoid using cleaning products containing silicone which can damage rug fibers.
