How to clean your rugs

Posted by Natural Area Rugs on Aug 16th 2012

To keep your rug looking vibrant and new you should vacuum regularly. The best way to vacuum thoroughly is to vacuum the rug from several different directions, passing over each area of the rug several times. Rugs placed in high-traffic areas tend to have heavier soil build-up and need to be thoroughly vacuumed on a regular basis in order to prolong the beauty and life of the rug. For hand-tufted rugs such as wool and shag, you should go over your carpet regularly using an upright vacuum cleaner that has beater-bar action (but no teeth or combs). For everyday cleaning, simply shake the rug to remove loose dirt and fluff pile.

In the event that liquid spills onto your rug, use a dry, undyed cloth to blot (NOT rub) the liquid. We recommend using Host Dry Carpet Cleaner. Always refer to care tags attached to your rugs for specific instructions.
