Use special care with mild classic or antique rugs. Protect them from the vacuum by inserting a piece of nylon display over the rug and weighting it down with books or bricks. Vacuum over the screen. Or, tie a piece of nylon mesh over the vacuum attachment and modification the mesh commonly as dirt accumulates. Have these rugs professionally cleaned once a year. Rotate rugs to make sure even wear; direct publicity to sun will cause fading. Also, when you have kids at home, ask them to dispose chewing gum and bubble gum correctly.
