Care & Cleaning

Alliyah Rugs recommend only the use of Woolite or other compatible Carpet Cleaner for the cleaning of all rugs. The cleaning process should involve applying the Woolite with a soft bristle brush, rinsing the water, and extracting with a vacuum or extractor. The rug should then be dried by air or low temperature hair dryer or in the sun. The use of any other cleaning solvent will void the AR any responsibility, and make the cleaning service solely responsible for any damage caused to the rug. AR does not guarantee that these methods work and should be used as a guideline only! If in doubt, call a reputable cleaner.

It is highly recommended that you vacuum your rug once a week. If your rug has fringes, be careful when vacuuming. Do not vacuum the fringes as they may pull. Vacuuming the rug regularly. If anything is to spill on the rug make sure that you remove it quickly by using a damp paper towel. Do not drag the towel along the stained area, just tapping the area will suffice. Then you can use a spoon to retract the excess spillage. If in any case the spillage is a dark liquid, such as coffee, wine, soda, etc., use a moist towel with soap and water. Do not leave the rug wet as it may form mildew and could cause the rug to rot. Do not expose the rug to sunlight on a regular basis. Too much sunlight causes the colors to fade which in turn creates unevenness in the colors of the rug. For true professional cleaning we suggest that you contact an expert cleaning company or follow the below steps.
