FAQ about area rugs & answers from Indianapolis flooring store Kermans

Published: May 29, 2014
Kermans Flooring got our start with area rugs and area rugs remain an important part of our Indianapolis flooring store. Have a question about area rugs? We have the answer.

I understand area rugs are often considered works of art. Do I need to put mine in a low traffic area? 

While it’s true that handmade area rugs are beautiful works of art, these are works of art designed to be used! In fact, the more an area rug is walked on – the more beautiful its appearance. Normal wear actually enhances the shine and colors of an area rug. It’s also important to note that not all area rugs are handmade. Kermans offers a variety of machine-made rugs that are often more durable if wear and tear is a concern.

What is the best way to clean and maintain my area rug?

Treat it like your carpet! Frequent vacuuming will go a long way to helping maintain your area rug. Stains can be treated with a clean towel and water. Just as with carpet, getting to the stain as soon as possible is key. Blotting it – not scrubbing – is the best way to remove most of the stain.

Need more help with a stubborn stain? Kermans offers expert rug cleaning and repair. Each area rug is treated individually with special attention and care for proper cleaning and the best results possible. Learn more about our rug cleaning services.

Are there many choices when it comes to area rugs beyond colors?

Yes! One of the first choices you’ll make is handmade vs machine-made. Your budget and intended use will likely dictate which of those choices you make. You’ll also consider the type of fibers that are in the rug, and if you choose handmade, the region in which it was designed will make a difference in its color, style and patterns.

Can I use area rugs in my basement?

An area rug can be the perfect way to offer a soft feel on a tile or laminate floor (both popular basement floor choices). Area rugs can also help give a room definition – say set apart the television watching area from the pool table.
