Rug-specific Care

Care by Rug Type

Hand-knotted

All general care tips will suffice.

Flatweaves

Some flatweaves are washable, read instructions carefully.

Hand-tufted

Comb the long piles of a hand-tufted rug to keep them neat and improve the life of the rug.

Since a flatweave is very light, a rug pad will avoid slipping of the rug.

Handloom

All general care tips will suffice.

Care by Rug Material

Wool

When cleaning, use only cold or lukewarm water to avoid shrinkage and damage.

Blot away any spills immediately and then clean with mild soap and water – do not use oxygen cleaners.

Silk

Never saturate or soak silk rugs with water as this can damage the fibers.

Blot away any spills immediately and then clean with mild soap and water – do not use oxygen cleaners.

Natural Fiber

Natural fibers are highly absorbent and should be cleaned regularly.

Do not steam clean or saturate with water – this can cause rugs to shrink or be damaged.

Synthetic

Make sure that any rug cleaners used are safe for use on synthetic fibers.

Deep cleaning once per year (or as needed) is recommended for best result.

Others

Shags

Shag rugs should be cleaned using spray extraction.

Vacuuming without a beater bar is best for shag rugs, however, they can also be effectively cleaned by simply shaking any dirt out.

Outdoor Rugs

For all-over cleaning, spray the rug with soapy water, rinse with a hose and leave to dry.

For spot-cleaning, remove any remaining matter and clean with soapy water and a sponge.
