Potted Plants + Area Rugs= Bad News

Live potted plants are great for our homes, but not so great for area rugs. If you have a potted plant on your rug please remove it immediately.

The problem with having a plant on your rug is that every time it gets watered, some of the water may miss the pot, the pot may over flow, or the pot may develop a leak.

Excess water on a rug can cause mold/mildew to grow, the colours to bleed, and possibly the rug to rot.

The following video shows what can happen when you put a live Christmas tree on a rug.

If you discover water damage on your area rug Luv-A-Rug can help.
