“On a micro level, dirt shreds the fibres of the rug and causes it to degenerate over time. So the longer the dirt is left in the rug, the deeper it becomes embedded, which exponentially increases the damage,” explains Kevin. He also recommends that homeowners shake out their rugs at least once a week.

It should at least provide coverage for the front legs of both your sofa and single seaters,” says Kevin.
