Product Care Guide - Floor Rugs

Taking care of indoor rugs is essential for maintaining their appearance and longevity. Here are general care instructions for indoor rugs: Remember that different rug materials, such as wool, synthetic fibres, cotton, silk, etc may have specific care requirements. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions and consider professional cleaning for valuable or delicate rugs to ensure they retain their beauty and durability over time.

Regular Vacuuming:

Vacuum rugs regularly to remove dirt, dust, and debris. Use a vacuum cleaner with a brushless suction head or a brush attachment to prevent damage to delicate fibres. Avoid strong or powerful suction modes as it may cause damage or pull fibres from your floor rug. 

Rotate Rugs: 

Rotate rugs periodically, especially in high-traffic areas, to ensure even wear and fading across the entire surface.

Spot Cleaning:

Attend to spills and stains immediately by blotting the area with a clean, dry cloth or paper towel to absorb excess liquid.

For stains, use a mild detergent mixed with water and gently blot the affected area. Avoid rubbing vigorously, as this may damage the fibres.

Deep Cleaning:

Depending on the rug's material and usage, consider professional cleaning or deep cleaning every 12-18 months to remove embedded dirt and stains. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for cleaning methods.

Protection from Sunlight:

Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, as it can cause fading and discoloration of the rug fibres. Use window coverings or rotate the rug periodically to minimize sun exposure.

Use Rug Pads:

Use rug pads underneath rugs to provide cushioning, prevent slipping, and protect both the rug and the floor underneath. Rug pads also aid in air circulation, which can prevent mould and mildew.

Avoid Moisture:

Keep rugs dry and free from moisture. If a rug gets wet, blot it immediately and allow it to air dry completely to prevent mould and mildew growth.

Professional Care:

For valuable or delicate rugs, consider professional rug cleaning services that specialize in the care of specific rug materials such as wool, silk, or antique rugs.

Read The Manufacturers Instructions:

Always refer to the care label or manufacturer's instructions for specific care guidelines tailored to your rug's material and construction.


If storing rugs for an extended period, clean and thoroughly dry them before rolling them up for storage. Store rugs in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to prevent damage.
