Make It Last
• Direct sunlight may cause your area rug to fade. Either place out of the direct sun or rotate every few months to reduce exposure.
• Avoid putting heavy furniture on your rugs without proper rug protectors.
• If you find you have creases, caused either in packing and shipping or from furniture resting on your rug, remove these creases by reverse rolling the area rug (pile side in) and resting your rug this way to allow it to relax.
• For harder to remove creases, use mild pressure on the back of the rug and roll the crease back and forth.
Spills & Stains
Shake your rug out before vacuuming to loosen any dirt or debris. Slowly vacuum your rug in the direction of the pile with an upholstery attachment, row by row. For longer pile rugs, do not use the vacuums beater bar or power head as this could cause damage to both your area rug and vacuum. Avoid vacuuming hand-knotted fringes and ensure that you are vacuuming higher traffic areas more frequently to extend the life of your rug.
Hand Made Specialty Rugs
Hard Surfaces like boot trays, and anti-fatigue mats can be cleaned by simply wiping clean with a damp cloth. Use a mild detergent for heavier spills. Soft surface mats like utility mats or fashion prints with Gel Latex backing are machine washable. Wash on a gentle cycle with warm water and then hang the mat to dry. All mats with woven backings should be cared for as rugs.
