Vacuuming and Sweeping

Sweeping your rug with a broom, in the direction of the pile, loosens ingrained dirt and residue. It also grooms your rug by removing shed wool fibers from the pile. Do not be alarmed- a wool, hand knotted rug will shed, especially when new. Vacuuming with a rotating brush vacuum will also groom your rugs surface. Just remember not to overdue it- a light, once over is plenty. Take extra care not to vacuum your rugs fringes and side bounding as they may get caught in the brush mechanism and get torn. Just use a hand brush to groom the fringes. The original fringe of a rug is the most vulnerable area for damage. We can do expert repair, but if you will be careful with your vacuuming, we can both avoid this job.
