Trying to maintain a clean home with children or pets (or both) is near impossible – sometimes your little ones don’t understand the ‘food-does-not-belong-all-over-the-floor’ rule or sometimes the puppy gets a little too excited and pees. And it just happens to be all over your brand new shag rug. You can’t get rid of the kids, or the puppy –  and you may think that the rug has to go, but you don’t need to get rid of the rug either. With stain resistant area rugs that are washable you can let the kids and the pet make all the mess and not have to worry about purchasing a brand new rug. As soon as there is a spill on a machine washable rug, it is as easy as simply rolling it up and throwing it in the washing machine. Stains and spills don’t get absorbed, so you don’t have to worry about the flooring underneath getting damaged- you can just wipe it off with a cloth and you’ll never even know that it was there!

Oftentimes people are hesitant to purchase a washable floor covering, while they have been around for some time, they don’t have the best reputation as the designs were not very appealing. New to the market are ones that are chic and stylish. Machine washable rugs have changed the way we decorate- gone are the days of replacing rugs constantly because of spills, stains or accidents from the kids or the family pet. Spill proof rugs are now available in an array of colours and designs, you are guaranteed to find the perfect one.

Area rugs can change your space by adding color and texture with the added benefit of bringing comfort to your home & tying the decor together. However, they can get extremely dirty. Whether you are a big and busy family, a couple with a pet or living on your own, washable area rugs are always a good idea. Ideal for many areas of your home, they make great nursery rugs, living room rugs, water resistant outdoor rugs and laundry or bathroom rugs.

When shopping for water resistant rugs, we recommend making sure that it’s one that you can actually wash! A lot of area rugs are sold as ‘washable’, however, this may leave you with a rug that you need to wash by hand or need to call a professional to wash. There actually aren’t that many machine washable rugs out there- make sure that you read the fine print and know what you’re purchasing. Keep in mind that although they are sold as machine washable, you don’t want to be washing them constantly. Save the washing for when you need a deeper clean to prevent from premature wear & tear. Vacuuming and spot cleaning your rug regularly are preferred.
