Dealing with Spills & Stains

No matter how careful you are, your area rug will probably suffer stains or spills, especially if you have a busy household with kids and/or pets. Fortunately, many of our area rugs are sold with stain-resistant technology, which makes it easy to deal with stains!

Some stains will wipe away with a simple cloth while others will require a more comprehensive approach. Before cleaning up any mess on your area rug, establish whether it's an oil- or water-based stain. Then, consult your manufacturer's care guide for help.
