MODA offers tips on caring for area rugs

MODA offers tips on caring for area rugs

By Janice Howell, vice president, MODA Floors & Interiors, www.ModaFloorsandInteriors.com

Area rugs need the same attention and consistent maintenance as your carpeting, ceramic tile or hardwood flooring. Knowing what’s expected of you regarding their upkeep can be a determining factor in the type of rugs you purchase.
