Rotate and prevent uneven wear of your rugs!

While there are a few recommendations for maintaining your area rug, the very first rule I like to tell my customers is to ENJOY it!
Since many area rugs are used in rooms that can have a specific traffic pattern, it's a good idea to rotate your rug twice a year. The rotation will equalize sunlight exposure and will also ensure that the rug wears evenly. It is also a good idea to occasionally rearrange the layout of your room to change traffic patterns across your area rug. If your area rug has been in the same room for years you most likely have one side that is much more worn than the other.  Although some experts claim that you only need to rotate your rug every one to two years, we believe you should make sure to rotate your rug twice a year to ensure more uniform wear and fading on all sides.Simply fold over each corner of the rug and then rotate the rug 180 degrees.
