Regular vacuuming is important to keep rugs in top condition. It helps to remove any surface dirt before it can be ground into the fibers and prevents discoloration and staining with time.
Proper storage of rugs is important to prolong their lifespan and prevent them from becoming damaged over time. Ideally, the rug should first be thoroughly cleaned and dried before being rolled up and left in a cool, dry, dark space. Climate-controlled spaces are preferable to prevent fluctuations in temperature and humidity that can damage rugs.
