Question:

How to wash a shaggy rug/carpet?

in my room i have a large blue shaggy rug, the shaggy bits are about 2-3cm long.I have a quot;vax matchquot; carpet cleaning machine and carpet shampoo, will it work?or wil the shaggy bits get caught up and break the machine?

Answer:

You can probably just machine wash the rug...regular laundry detergent, cold water. Drying is up to you. Machine drying makes a rug fluffier, but it also tears apart the rubber backing. Air drying preserves the backing, but the rug doesn't look as fluffy. Like I said...up to you. But either way, I'm sure you can machine wash the rug, unless it's wool. Hope this helps. -

Over dyed rugs are modern rugs which are specially designed to give stylish and vibrant look to your room. They are specially weaved, treated and washed to give a unique effect to individual rugs with 80% wool and 20% cotton and combination of different techniques and best quality Indian wool. These rugs can be well used to give deep tone to ground any contemporary home.

ALWAYS contact the manufacturer of your shag carpet before attempting to vacuum it. Ask them specifically what type of vacuum they recommend for your specific carpet. In some cases a vacuum with a beater bar can damage the carpet and/or vacuum. Suction only vacuums can tear the threads right out of the carpet in some cases. b
