Natural fiber rugs are attractive alternatives to synthetic fabrics. When properly maintained, natural fibers can continue to look as good as new for many years. Sisal, sea grasses, bamboo, wool, jute and many other materials are woven into area rugs that can fit any sized room. Most manufacturers will include a care tag that lists specific care instructions for your particular fabric, however there are some universal care tips that will help you to maintain your natural fiber rug.
Vacuum thoroughly with any type of vacuum cleaner. Make several passes to allow the vacuum cleaner to extract all of the dust and dirt.
Blot any liquid spills with a clean cloth. For stains, you can lightly moisten the cloth with mild detergent and spot clean. Do not saturate the area with water as that can shrink or warp the rug. Blot the area dry with a separate cloth.
Rotate your natural fiber rug at least twice a year so that heavy traffic does not create wear patterns in your rug.
