Rug Care & Maintenance Tips

We want you to have a lifetime love affair with your rug. Some of our vintage rugs are decades old, and we want them to last decades more. Follow these handy tips to treat your rug right.

The best way to keep your rug looking its best is to vacuum clean it from the first day on. For the process you should make sure to use a vacuum with aflat nozzle.

The rug should be turned every few weeks in order to avoid pressure marks from furniture, and to Prevent wear-and-tear over time on areas that are prone to high traffic.  

We recommend limiting the amount of sun exposure on your rug. Prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause irregular loss of color.

If you feel that it’s necessary to beat the rug to get rid of dust or sand, please only beat the back of the rug to prevent damage to the top side!

For sticky Stains like gum, harden it using an ice cube before prying it off.

Make sure that you clean up spills or stains as as soon as they occur to prevent them from setting in permanently.

Gentle stain removers and rug shampoos are the best way to remove stains. Follow the instructions carefully for whichever product you are using.

Allow the carpet to dry fully by ventilating the area. Leave windows and doors of the room open to encourage free air circulation.

Always remember to test any cleaning products on a small area first.
