Holidays & Your Rugs

With the holidays here, it is so important to make sure your rugs are kept clean and tidy. If you are hosting any kind of gathering this year, be prepared in case accidents happen on or near your area rugs. Depending on the type of rug you have, different types of care may be necessary. Keep reading to learn some of our top tips for maintaining your rug’s high quality this holiday season!

  1. Spill something? Clean it ASAP

If you have a spill or deep stain on your rug, perhaps from a glass of wine or a cup of hot cocoa, do not let it sit in your rug to “soak.” The best thing you can do in the case of a spill is to blot the liquid up with a towel or rag, then evaluate the stain and see if there is any chance it will come out. If you feel helpless, Cristomar is here to help. We can get even the more stubborn stains out of area rugs. Trust us.

  1. Vacuum Frequently

Do your holiday decorations shed? Christmas garland, glitter ornaments, and even sequins on  decorations can get stuck in your rug. This is why you need to maintain your rug by vacuuming frequently. Now, excessive vacuuming can damage the fringe and stitching in your rug. It is essential to lightly go over the corners and the edges of your rugs.

  1. Enjoy the Holidays
