Vacuum both the top and bottom sides of your rug. Use a rug pad specific to the type of surface on which you will be placing your rug. This will help protect your floor or wall-to-wall carpeting and will extend the life of your rug.
Vacuum the top side. Handmade rugs will have some natural shedding of excess fibers. (or AS NEEDED) Carved rugs will have more excess fibers. DO NOT use a beater bar vacuum. Set the head of the vacuum at the highest setting so you will not be ‘pulling’ out any fibers. Blot spills and stains immediately.
Vacuum both top and bottom sides of your rug. Rotate rugs to ensure even wear and prevent fading. Replace worn rug pads.
Professionally clean a good quality rug every 3-5 years. Hot water extraction machines are NOT recommended.
Vacuum on a regular basis with the pile level set on high. Be careful not to let the vacuum ‘eat’ the fringes.
Vacuum on a regular basis with the pile level set on high.
Vacuum regularly with an upholstery attachment. DO NOT use a rotary vacuum with a beater bar. If long ends appear above the top edge of the rug, DO NOT pull them. This is not a defect and is called ‘sprouting’. It is a common occurrence with hand-hooked rugs. Use scissors to carefully cut the sprouted ends to be even with the rest of the rug.
Blot spills immediately. Wipe with a damp cloth. Do not saturate with water as it may damage the backing.
