Cleaning Your Shag Rugs
The deep piles on shag rugs trap dirt and grime right down to the backing, so deep cleaning them requires some actions. Here are several ways to cleaning shag rugs. Take your shag rug outdoors and give it a good shake to remove loose dust and debris. Hold one end of the rug and give it several firm shakes, then hold the other end of the rug and repeat. Vacuum larger, room-sized shag rugs at least once every week. Set your vacuum’s brush to the highest level so the fibers won’t be damaged or caught in the brush. Alternatively, use your vacuum cleaner’s hose and upholstery attachment. Sweep your larger shag rug several times every week using a stiff broom or a rake created specifically for shag rugs. A quick sweeping will prevent the long fibers from becoming mashed, and it also will prevent dirt from becoming embedded deep in the rug.
Clean spills immediately, according to the directions that came with your shag rugs. Blot the spills as soon as possible with a soft cloth. Treat stains with a few drops of gentle, clear dish detergent or liquid laundry detergent mixed with water, or as directed by your rug’s manufacturer. Alternatively, use a color-safe bleach according to the directions on the container. Test any cleaning solution on a hidden area to be sure the solution won’t affect the colors of your shag rugs. Turn your shag rugs 180 degrees at least once or twice every year to prevent uneven wear or fading.
