Rugs are the largest indoor surface used on a daily basis and are inclined to get dirty and worn. To retain its beauty and functionality, it’s essential to keep your rug well cleaned all the time. They are primarily designed to disguise dirt. You wouldn’t see it and even feel like vacuuming until it’s too late. By the time you get to it, the dust gets settled in and starts damaging the fabrics.

It is advised not to use soap or any other cleaning product, as they could damage and fade the rug.
