Minimal, initial shedding is normal. Vacuum regularly. Do not use vacuum with a beater brush unless you can disable the brush or raise it higher than the shag pile because it may snag and pull the long shag tufts. If you cannot disable the beater brush or raise it higher than the shag pile you should only use suction attachments.
Professional cleaning is recommendedespecially for difficult stains or heavily soiled rugs.
If you choose to clean the rug yourself we recommend Host, which is a highly rated dry extraction carpet cleaning system which works very well with all rugs.
Clean liquid spills immediately. Blotdo not rubwith a clean, dry, absorbent cloth. You may spot-clean using a solution of mild dish soap and water but test the solution in a small, inconspicuous area of the rug to be sure there is no discoloration. Supplier FAQs:
Q: Will this rug scratch or dent easily?
A: These rugs have been aged, kiln dried and finished with premium polyurethane. This process is crucial in manufacturing the strongest, most durable bamboo rug in the marketplace. However, these rugs are not scratch-proof. Depending on the style and manner of use, these rugs will show some scratches due to unprotected furniture legs, animal claws, etc. Wood scratch remover can be used effectively to fill in scratches
Q: Can these rugs support heavy furniture? Dining table? Sofa?
A: Yes, these rugs can support such furniture and should not break under typical weights, as long as the surface is not a high pile carpet. To avoid scratches, we suggest using felt, rubber or plastic casters with rounded edges on any table or chair legs.
Q: Can you use a rolling chair on this rug?
A: No. An office chair with casters on its legs should not be used on most of our rugs. We would recommend our patented Bamboo Office Chair Mats for this purpose.
Q: My rug has an odor when first removed from its package. Will the smell go away? Is it toxic?
A: Yes, the odor will dissipate over the course of several days depending on the ventilation in the room. The odor is present because it is packaged soon after the rug pad backing is attached. As it is unrolled and given a chance to air out the odor will dissipate. The odor is not toxic.
Q: My rug is darker/lighter than what appears on your website/label.
A: Because bamboo is a natural material, each rug is unique and color may vary slightly from one production to another. Likewise, colored rugs are dyed and will vary slightly from one production to another.
Q: Will these rugs fade in the sun?
A: Yes, just as a wooden deck or outdoor wood furniture will fade when exposed to the elements, our rugs will also fade in direct sunlight. These rugs are suggested for indoor use and exposure to the sun should be limited.
