Rugs have been used for centuries to provide comfort and beauty to homes. Various cultures developed their own rug making techniques and most of these are still used today, to some extent in some places.
Many of the rugs in our area are manufactured tufted rugs. In tufting, small clusters of yarn are attached to a backing material and then held in place using a latex compound. An additional vinyl cushion layer is often applied to the back of rugs.
Other rugs are made by needle punching, hooking or braiding.
Woven rugs are popular, usually made by machines in Europe and sometimes hand looms in Asia.
Rug Care Tips
- Weekly vacuuming of both sides is ideal. If that’s not possible, you should do it at least once every two weeks.
- It is recommended that you rotate your rugs at least once a year. This means turning the rug end for end or 180 degrees. This helps the rug to wear more evenly. You may also want to reshuffle your furniture to change traffic patterns.
- Rugs should be rolled, not folded. When transporting in a moving van, a rolled rug should be placed on top of furniture and then have nothing heavy placed on the rug. Did you know that folding can cause permanent creases or wrinkles in your area rug?
- Rugs and carpets eventually get dirty. For the best possible clean get a professional area rug cleaner like.... VICTORIA CARPET CARE to do the job.
