How to Care for Your Outdoor Rugs This Rainy Season?

As the rainy season approaches, it’s time to prepare and protect our outdoor spaces, including our beloved outdoor rugs. Protecting rugs becomes one of the top priorities for housekeeping. This is because the increased humidity and the presence of insects and microbes may hamper the pristine condition of our rugs. 

In this comprehensive guide, we will walk you through essential tips on how to preserve and care for your outdoor rugs, ensuring they stay fresh and vibrant throughout the rainy days. 

Let’s dive in and discover the secrets to keeping your outdoor rugs in top-notch condition! 

  • Choose Quality Outdoor Rugs 

The first step in ensuring your rug withstands the rainy season is to invest in high-quality options. Look for materials that are specially designed to endure outdoor conditions. Green Decore offers rugs made from recycled plastic materials. These rugs are not only weather-resistant and durable, but eco-friendly and sustainable. We offer rugs that are waterproof and quick-drying.  

  • Opt for Grey or Black Rugs 

When selecting outdoor rugs for the rainy season, consider opting for darker shades such as black rugs or grey rugs. These rugs not only help in hiding dirt and stains better but also dry faster in the sun. Therefore, minimising the risk of mildew growth.  

  • Shake and Sweep Regularly 

Before the monsoon kicks in, get into the habit of shaking your rugs regularly. If you have a large outdoor rug, try sweeping it to remove loose debris, dirt and leaves. This simple step prevents the accumulation of moisture-trapping particles that could lead to bacterial growth.  

  • Roll Up and Store 

Although Green Decore’s Garden Rugs are weatherproof, however, keeping the rug for a very long time in the rain can cause issues. Hence, if you anticipate heavy rainfall or prolonged wet weather, consider rolling up your outdoor rugs and storing them in a dry, covered area. This precautionary measure shields them from excessive moisture and extends their lifespan.  

Alternatively, invest in small outdoor rugs that are easy to move indoors during adverse weather conditions.  

  • Spot Clean Stains 

Accidents happen and stains may appear on your rugs during the rainy season. Therefore invest in a washable outdoor rug. You can either hose it off or spot-clean any spills or stains using a mild detergent and a soft brush. Blot the area gently to remove excess moisture and prevent it from seeping into the rug fibres.  

  • Regularly Air and Dry 

On days with occasional sunshine, take advantage of the opportunity to air and dry your rug. Hang them over a sturdy railing or clothesline to allow proper airflow and ensure any residual moisture evaporates.
