RUG CARE 

To care for your area rug:

 

Caring for wool rugs:

Wool rugs will shed temporarily after the initial unwrapping. This is a natural occurrence due to the use of pure wool fibers in the construction of your rug. Shedding will go down over time. Here are some tips to get the most out of your shag rug:

 

Spills, Stains, Spot Cleaning and Pet Stains 

We always recommend professional rug cleaning and any cleaning techniques listed are only suggestions. 

Spills: Use an absorbent cloth and hold firmly immediately after the spill to absorb as much of the liquid as you can. Do not rub the stain deeper into the material as this will cause the spill to spread out, and make it more difficult to remove the stain. 

Stains: If time has passed since the stain appeared, make a mixture of room temperature water, a mild detergent and white vinegar and apply the foam at the top of the mixture with an absorbent cloth. Let it sit for 20 minutes and remove with a wet cloth.  

Pet Stains: Absorb as much of the affected are as you can with a paper towel, then apply a light coat of baking soda over the stain. Wait 10 minutes then apply a layer of pet stain remover (read directions on the pet solution before applying) and lightly scrub until you see the stain begin to disappear. Let it sit another 10-20 minutes and finish by vacuuming up remaining substance.
