•  In order for your rugs to retain their appearance & shape for a long time please remove dust & stains regularly.  
•  A lighter coloured rug will require cleaning more often that a darker one.

Regular Vacuuming  
•  Vacuum your rug / carpet at least once a week.

•  Do not use a vacuum cleaner with a rotary brush nozzle.

•  Please note it is normal for the rug to lose individual fiber when used. These are excess fibers & do not affect the general quality of the rug.

•  More frequent vacuuming on a new rug can help in getting rid of the excess fibers / yarn.


Rotate your Rug  
•  For uniform exposure to sunlight & wear rotate the placement of your rug periodically.

 
Stain Removal
