If you own a serged area rug, it’s important to remember to gently clean it with a suction-only vacuum. Beating or scrubbing the rug can damage its finish and fibers. For indoor or outdoor rugs, we recommend you vacuum or sweep your rug regularly and blot any spills with mild soapy water to avoid stains. If you own an outdoor rug, you can hose it off but be sure to let it sun dry immediately to avoid mildew and mold growth.
If you’ve purchased a hand-hooked outdoor or indoor rug, you should take care when vacuuming. Do not use the beater bar in your vacuum as it may catch or pull the looped fibers. Unusual stains and spots may require a Professional Cleaning Service. If you’re unsure about how to care for your rug, feel free to contact the experts at Curren Flooring for more guidance.

High-quality carpets containing viscose, rayon, cotton, and tencel can retain their beauty and durability for many years as long as they’re maintained properly. Natural fibers are inherently absorbent and should not be placed in damp areas or where spills are likely to occur, like kitchens, outdoors, and bathrooms. When removing spills, it’s vital to act quickly since wet stains act as a magnet to dirt particles.
When cleaning the stain, scoop up any solid materials, then clean from the outside of the spot inwards using a blotting motion. We recommend only using dry cleaning materials such as Capture, HOST, or Wool Dry. When using a carpet cleaning solution, it’s best to pretest on a small, inconspicuous area on the rug to ensure it doesn’t damage or discolor the fibers. If you’re unsure about how best to handle the stain, call a professional carpet cleaner.
Our wool rugs love to be vacuumed regularly. This will remove the fine dirt particles that can lodge between the fibers and cause additional wear. For best results, use a suction-only vacuum—no beater bar and no rotary powerhead.
