Surya rugs are known for their beauty. Each rug is handmade, ensuring that no two are exactly the same. These rugs are showpieces in homes, accenting rooms with their beauty and design. Knowing how to properly care for your Surya rug will ensure that it will continue to look as beautiful as the day you purchased it.
While your Surya rug can be vacuumed, beater bars are not recommended. They can catch on your carpet threads causing them to get pulled out. Whenever possible, use a handheld vacuum without a beater bar. If this is not possible, turn off the motorized bar while cleaning this unique carpet. If your vacuum does not have a feature to turn off the beater bar, then tune it to the highest rug setting and observe that it does not catch on the threads. Do not vacuum over loose threads as they can get caught in the motor. The type of vacuum does make a difference as well. Canister varieties are preferred as upright vacuums have a much higher suction power and are more likely to cause less damage. Do not vacuum the fringes around the edge of your carpet. Vacuum both sides of reversible rugs to ensure that all dirt and grime is removed. A simple manual sweeper is ideal for carpets that are placed in less busy areas.
