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.
Man-made fiber rugs are good choices for brilliant colors and great service in high traffic areas, areas of sun exposure, and areas of heavy use. They are strong and durable and easy to clean. The look of synthetic rugs is not as rich as wool rugs but is substantially more attractive today than they were in the past. There are many ways synthetic rugs are set and woven and many imitate wool's overall look and feel. Many rugs combine synthetic fibers with natural fibers so read the descriptions carefully.
