WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO VACUUM MY RUG?

You don’t need a fancy expensive vacuum to use on your area rugs, but you should know that some vacuums may be too powerful for delicate rugs and fibers. Here is a wonderful article by the RUG CHICK- Lisa Wagner on which vacuums work best for which type of rugs: HOW DO I VACUUM MY RUG?

TIPS: If you can, take your rug outside once a year to DUST AND VACUUM as follows:

  1. First Step: shake it out!
  2. Place your rug face-down, lay flat and vacuum the back side.
  3. Flip it over and vacuum the face/top.
  4. Remember to go SLOW, your rugs are more delicate than carpet.
  5. DO NOT VACUUM FRINGE! It may get caught in the beater bar and cause damage very easily to your rug and your vacuum.
