Shagpile Rug Cleaning Tips

Shagpile Rug Cleaning Tips

One style of rug that has become increasingly popular and more fashionable within Australian homes is the Shagpile Rug. These gorgeous rugs are identified through their long pile length, which gives them their unique “shaggy” look.

Shagpile rugs, not an ordinary rug:

Due to their long pile, various thicknesses, and designs, it is important to maintain your rug by having it cleaned regularly. The process of cleaning shag rugs can, however, be quite difficult compared to ordinary rugs. This is due to the pile that these rugs have. It means that they require even more attention than your regular rugs. Below are some handy tips that you can do to keep your rug clean.

A few handy tips for cleaning your shagpile rugs:

  • If your rug is not too large, you can hang the rug over a washing line or outside railing. Then, using a stick or bat, beat the rug. This will loosen up any soiling.
  • Vacuum your rug at least twice a week. Vacuuming your rug regularly helps to keep your rug in fine form and slows deterioration.
  • Sweep your rugs with a bristle broom. This helps to maintain the foundation of the rug.

Our rug cleaning process:

When cleaning rugs at our rug cleaning facility located in Murarrie, we rigorously work the rugs to loosen any particles they hold. We will often use the rug badger to release all the inground dirt hiding amongst the fibres. After this, your rug will be thoroughly washed. Below are some photos showing our fully qualified technicians removing the dirt and grit that has been pushed deep into a rug.

By taking regular care of your shagpile rugs, and following a few of the tips listed above, you will be able to keep your rugs in optimum condition, prolong their life, and help keep any allergies at bay.
