How to Care for Your Rug

Rug maintenance is an important part of protecting your rug investment. Simple things like vacuuming regularly and getting your rug professionally cleaned every 3 - 6 years can help to extend the life of your rug.

Routine Rug Maintenance

Vacuum your wool rugs regularly. 

For rugs with fringe, avoid vacuuming near the fringe. 

For distressed vintage rugs (will be called in in description) avoid vacuuming areas with holes or frayed edges.

Take your jute rugs outside and shake it out a few times a year and vacuum occasionally. 

If you have a shaggy rug, like a moroccan rug, I recommend shaking it out regularly and vacuuming occasionally. 

For large area rugs, it can be a good idea to rotate your rug in the space, so that it wears evenly over time.  

For hand knotted and powerloomed rugs (the pattern is visible on the back), it’s a good idea to turn the rug upside down and vacuum the back of the rug ever couple of years. 

To extend the lifespan of your rug, have it professionally cleaned every 3 - 6 years.
