To care for your area rug:
  • Vacuum regularly. Do not use a beater bar attachment. If you cannot remove the beater bar, raise it as high as possible and vacuum carefully.
  • When vacuuming, use the lowest available setting to prevent fibers from being pulled out of the rug backing.
  • Sprouts that appear on the surface of the rug should be snipped at level. Do not pull the fiber out.   
  • If you own a natural fiber rug, be sure to vacuum the area underneath the rug periodically. 
  • Spills should be cleaned immediately using a clean white cloth. Avoid rubbing, as this may push the stain deeper into the rug.
  • To promote even wear of the rug surface, rotate regularly.
  • Avoid exposing rugs to continuous direct sunlight. This will cause colors to fade over time. 
For deep cleaning, professional assistance is highly recommended.
