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.
Trusted sources would be dealers who have been around awhile with a good track record with the area rug business. At all costs stay away from the bankruptcy sales or going out of business sales. Even if you purchase an area rug in the country of origin it is still no guarantee of any savings or the quality of the rugs, as most of the best examples of the rugs will be saved and used in the export trade leaving less quality rugs for you to purchase in the local markets.
