Your rug will shed no matter the material and a new wool rug will shed constantly. We recommend vacuuming your rug new rug 4-5 times within the first month and at least once a month after that. When vacuuming, set the brushes on the vacuum to high or avoid using the brushes (beater or roller) entirely, as this can damage the pile of the rug. Also, avoid vacuuming the fringe of the rug, which can lead to pulling and damaging the fringe.
Note: Wool rugs will shed a lot within the first few months of purchase. Don't worry, this is completely natural and after a few months, the amount of shedding will be limited.
General Care Tips
To even out soiling, sunlight exposure, and wear, rotate rugs every 6 months to a year.
Another common occurrence during the holiday season is moving furniture or adding more chairs to accommodate guests. This usually leaves horrible dents in the carpet and a quick vacuum never does the job. Instead, place an ice cube on the dent.
The size of the dent will determine how many cubes you need. Place cubes right on top of the divot about 2 inches apart and let the carpet soak up the melted water. Once the carpet completely dries, give the area a vacuum and the dents will disappear. If there are still pieces of carpet that have not popped up, you can use your fingers or a table fork to gently fluff those pieces. It works every time!
Remember the golden rule of rug cleaning spills: Blot, Never Scrub!Work from the outer edges of a spot to the center.
