Consumers using silk rugs have a tendency to place them areas of high traffic and soil buildup. Unlike most area rugs silk rugs cannot be steam cleaned because of the delicate silk. The texture can become distorted and the fiber water damaged from the cleaning. They can only be cleaned with a special dry cleaning solvent by hand. This process will not remove the heavy soils and stains that occur in a high traffic or soil area. After a relatively short period of time you will have a very expensive area rug that will not look very good. If you still want to place a silk rug in these areas it is recommended that it be solvent cleaned every 3 months and to turn it to change the traffic pattern. This will expand the pretty part of its life. NEVER place it by your front door. The rain or snow moisture will permanently damage the silk. Wherever you place it a thin gripping pad under it will keep it from sliding and help slow down the wearing of the silk.

Laying and protecting your area rug. All area rugs that are placed on hardwood floors or laminate floors should be laid over top of a good non-slip underlayment which can prevent accidents. Having that extra underlayment under the carpet will also help in the protection of the underside of the area rug from the day to day wear and tare and will help to make it more soft and resilient. If you have a light area rug you can secure it by means of a special mesh backing or with the use of bonding strips. Another benefit of the area rug underlayment pad is it is useful if you are placing the area rug over an existing carpet. This will stop the area rug from creeping and wrinkling and it will also give you protection for the carpet if the area rug is prone not to be colorfast. Cleaning your area rugs should be done especially antique and Oriental with special care by laying an nylon screen over the rug and weighing down the screen so as to protect the rug from the vacuum. If you have high traffic then you should have the rug professionally cleaned. Rotating your area rugs will allow even wear. If there is a direct sunlight exposure then you should consider the proper window treatment that will protect the area rug from the harsh UV rays and the fading that can happen to your rugs.
