How to keep your rug clean.

Vacuuming helps:

Make sure you vacuum your rugs at least once a week. This will prevent dirt from being hidden into the fabric, which is most times harder to remove.

Before switching on your vacuum cleaner, make sure to give the rug a shake, this will dislodge any loose grit or dirt that is trapped within the fibers.

Attend to spillages immediately:

Soak your rug up as soon as you notice a liquid is spilled on it. Quickly make sure it doesn’t get into the yarns of the rug.

Once you have cleaned up the spillage, you are advised to leave the rug to dry completely before placing back on the floor. 

The best way to clean spillages is by dampening a white, cotton cloth precisely, blot the affected area, be careful not to rub, as this can further damage the rug’s surface.
