Tufted Rugs

Tufted rugs, distinct from knotted ones, are crafted by pulling loops of yarn through the rug's backing material using a tufting gun. This process results in a plush and inviting decorative piece. However, it's essential to note that tufted rugs tend to shed more than other types, which may require more frequent vacuuming to maintain their pristine appearance.

Frequent Tufted Rug Maintenance:


Fluffing is a natural phenomenon in tufted rugs and tends to diminish over time through gentle hand brushing and regular vacuuming.


Sprouting tufts are common in tufted rugs. If you notice any protruding tufts, it's best to use scissors to trim them instead of pulling them out, as pulling might cause damage to the rug.


Placing heavy furniture on your tufted rug can result in indents caused by crushed piles. To prevent this, consider occasionally rearranging your furniture and rug to distribute the stress more evenly. Additionally, rotating the rug regularly can ensure more even exposure to sunlight and wear.

Preventive Maintenance for Your Tufted Rug:

  • Hand brush or vacuum regularly (recommended twice a week).

  • Immediately remove spills by blotting with an undyed cloth.

  • Avoid using harsh chemicals to remove stains.

  • Refrain from using the rug in damp areas.

  • Do not soak the rug in water or attempt to dry clean it.

Care and Cleaning of Your Tufted Rug:

Vacuuming Your Rug:

Vacuuming is a highly effective and cost-efficient method to keep your rug clean. When vacuuming, use a suction vacuum with the beater bar turned off. Beater bar brushes or rotary brush nozzles may twist or damage the tufted fibers, so turning them off helps reduce wear and tear on your rug. If your vacuum has adjustable suction, set it to a low level and go over each area 3-5 times to clear dust, dirt, and hair thoroughly.

Dealing with Stains:

For dry stains, gently scrape and vacuum away dirt and stains.

For wet stains, use a paper towel or undyed cloth to absorb the stain. Dampen the stain with lukewarm water using a cloth or sponge, then blot up the water with another cloth. Repeat this process until the stain fades. Avoid drenching the rug to protect the glue binding that holds the tufts in place.

For greasy or stubborn stains, use a pH-neutral and bleach-free cleaner following the steps mentioned above.

Professional Cleaning:

When in doubt or when dealing with challenging stains, it's best to have your rug cleaned professionally. Avoid dry-cleaning it.
