Rug Care

How to care for your Natural Fiber Rug

Grown Green natural fiber rugs are remarkably simple to care for and maintain. Sisal, Coir, and Jute fibers are naturally resilient and generally perform well with regular vacuuming. These fibers are static-free, which means they prevent dirt and dust particles from clinging to the surface of the rug. These particles, instead, filter through the weave of the rugs, which reduces abrasion and damage to their surfaces.

Cleaning

Vacuuming: The best care you can give your floorcovering is regular, thorough vacuuming. Proper vacuuming requires both suction and brush action. Either an upright- or canister-type vacuum cleaner can be used. For best vacuuming results, vacuum from different directions, making several passes over the area. Heavy traffic areas require the most attention and should receive regular vacuuming to reduce soil build-up and prolong the beauty and life of the floorcovering.

Cleaning Natural Floorcoverings: Never saturate your carpet with water or cleaner; this will stain the carpet.

Removing Spills and Stains: Whenever possible, clean up a spill immediately after it occurs. If liquid, blot up as much as you can with a clean, dye-free cloth, pressing firmly all around the spill to absorb as much of the liquid as possible. If the material is solid, scrape up what you can with a spoon or the dull edge of a knife or spatula.
