Keeping Your Outdoor Area Rug looking vibrant through the summer

By bringing splashes of color and pattern to even the most manicured of yards, outdoor rugs help define where you will be enjoying and relaxing over the summer months with your family and friends. Outdoor rugs from Mafi Rugs are made of synthetic fibers, making them stain-resistant, decreasing sun fading, and making them easier to clean. However, to get your outdoor rugs to last and stay looking beautiful it does not hurt to know how to clean and take care of them. Fortunately, your outdoor rug will generally require little maintenance over the summer to keep looking vibrant.

Here are some easy tips to keep your outdoor rugs beautiful throughout the summer: 

  • For large spills, use a garden hose to rinse and dry thoroughly in sunlight.
  • Tape down lifted edges with double-sided tape to keep guests from tripping.
  • Avoid using harsh chemicals or bleach, as they may fade your rug.
  • If your rug is outside in heavy rain, make sure to flip it over so it can dry both front and back.
  • Occasionally wash off thoroughly with a garden hose, and allow the carpet to dry completely before vacuuming. Do not forget to flip over and dry both sides.

Follow these easy tips to keep outdoor rugs apart of your personal oasis! You can find outdoor rugs at our Seldens Home Furnishings of Bellevue, Tacoma, and Olympia locations.
