Creases in area rugs can typically be removed by allowing new rugs to rest for several days, reverse rolling the rug or steaming the creased area. Creases are usually a temporary result of the rug being rolled during shipping and seldom pose a long-term challenge to rug care and maintenance. However, for stubborn creases it may be necessary to contact a carpet professional for assistance.
