Frequently Asked Outdoor Rug Questions

What Are the Best Rugs for Outdoor?

The best outdoor rugs are ones specifically crafted for the purpose of being outside. So rather than dragging your living room area rugs out to your patio, you'll want to find one that's made to stand up to weather and the elements. Typically, the best outdoor patio rugs are made of a durable synthetic material like polypropylene or polyester. These are both waterproof and low shedding, but which one is best for you depends on your needs.

Polypropylene outdoor porch rugs work well in climates that see a lot of humidity and rain. They're great for dining areas because they are also stain-resistant. On the other hand, polyester has the benefit of being fade-resistant, making it a better pick for sunny areas. However, it's not as great at handling oil-based stains.

Benefits to Outdoor Waterproof Rugs

Finding the perfect waterproof outdoor rug has a ton of benefits for your space. First of all, it will add a hefty dose of style and color, instantly sprucing up boring patios. Second, it adds a layer of comfort for you and your family. There's no more need to worry about splinters or scratches from your deck, as an outdoor rug will protect your feet if you're barefoot. A large outdoor rug is also good for protecting flooring beneath, especially if you're worried about damage from the sun or other elements.

Another key point? Most outdoor deck rugs can also be used indoors. You might be thinking — why would I want to use an outdoor rug indoors? Well, because they're waterproof, they can be great if you have messy kids who are constantly spilling things. You might also want one for a high-traffic mudroom or entry where people frequently walk around in their muddy shoes.

How to Clean Outdoor Rugs

The good news is that cleaning outdoor rugs doesn't have to be a hassle. Cleaning instructions vary slightly between manufacturers and materials, but the basic steps for a spot clean are as follows:
  • Blot away any remaining liquid with a cloth or paper towel. Avoid rubbing.
  • Mix water with some detergent, and then gently dab the stain with a sponge.
  • Rinse out the sponge and repeat your dabbing until the stain is gone.
Of course, there's more to keep your outdoor rugs clean than wiping up spills. You'll want to perform a little maintenance to keep them looking their best. Try vacuuming them using the lowest setting every few weeks to collect dirt and debris. You can also shake your rug out or sweep to remove stubborn particles. If your outdoor rug has seen it's better days, consider even buying a new spring outdoor rug to revamp your outdoor space.
