What can you do to maintain your rug?

Through proper care and maintenance, your rug will look better and last even longer. Here are a few tips on caring for your rug:

Getting your rug to lay flat

On opening, roll your rug out and leave in a warm room for 24 hours before putting in place. This will help to reduce wrinkles and curling from packing.

General care

  • Clean spills immediately by blotting with a clean dry white cloth – do not rub
  • Before using any cleaning products on your rug, test an inconspicuous area first for colour fastness
  • Do not pull any loose threads – please cut loose threads carefully with scissors to remove
  • Regularly brush or vacuum your rug to keep your rug clean, help maintain the fibres and prevent it from flattening. For wool rugs and shaggy rugs, we recommend carefully vacuuming the rug using a nozzle attachment.
  • Use a slip-resist pad to help keep your rug in place and provide additional protection for hard floors.
  • Turn your rug regularly to ensure even wear.
  • Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight as this may cause fading of some dyes.
