This rug is made from recycled polyester, which is an extremely durable material. If a thread comes loose, snip it with scissors instead of pulling it.

  • Vacuum once or twice a week on a carpet setting, or with the beater bar off.
  • Keep your rug out of direct sunlight & occasionally rotate.
  • Use a high-quality carpet pad to reduce friction.
  • Firmly blot any spills immediately.

  • If absolutely necessary, you can try a mild dish soap solution.
  • Don’t use any solvents or harsh cleaning agents, including products labeled “oxy.”
  • Don’t use any laundry detergents.
  • Serious stains should be handled by a professional.
