Purchasing an area rug can be an exciting experience because it means we are moving or remodeling our place. We are anxiously waiting for our package to arrive and without yet receiving the rug, we can imagine how wonderful it will look in our home. When the rugs arrive, and we open the package we notice that it has a few fold marks or creases. If you can relate, please don’t worry. Getting rid of creases and fold marks on an area rug is easy just like singing the ABC’s. Here I have provided four easy method to get rid of the fold marks and creases we all hate:
- Since our area rugs are shipped rolled with the design facing inward (to avoid the rug to get exposed to dust and stains during shipping), we recommend rolling the rug with the design facing outwards, for one or two days. This method will help accelerate the process of getting rid of the crease and fold marks on the rug.
- Another effective method is to lay the area rug in an area where it will be exposed to sunlight and oxygen. The sunlight and oxygen will cause the fibers on the area rug to go back to its natural state, meaning the rug will be plushier, vibrant and softer.
- Laying heaving objects like furniture or books on every corner of the area rug can also help to get rid of creased and fold marks of the rug due to the weight and pressure it applies to the carpet.
- We also recommend to steam vacuum the area rug. Not only will it help to get the crease out of the area rug FAST, but it will also conserve and keep the rug looking like new for many years to come.
Our area rugs manufacturers quality of inspection is exceptional. Our rugs are properly rolled in plastic and are never shipped folded to ensure the rug you ordered from us arrives to your home in the same condition as the one you saw pictured in our website.
Hope these four simple tips can be of huge help to you. After reading this article you are now ready to attack the fold and creases we all hate.
