When you first unroll your rug.
Take a moment to flatten the edges and any irregularities that may have occurred during shipping, and to evenly redistribute the tension of the cords, if necessary. Please note, the Shore tag denotes the bottom side of the rug (which contains the majority of joined cord ends). During weaving, we lightly talc the cord. While we take care in washing the rugs before sending, a light amount of talc might still remain. Due to this, please be aware that you might feel a bit of slipperiness when stepping from the rug to another floor surface.
If a spill occurs on the rug.
Shore Rugs™ can be simply rinsed or hosed off with water. Soap can be used, if necessary, and the rugs can be scrubbed with a brush or sponge. If a spill occurs on the rug, clean the rug itself and the surface underneath, as the spill may penetrate to the floor below. The material resists stains and the color will not rub off onto other materials or surfaces.
Regular maintenance and care.
We recommend that Shore Rugs™, and the floor below, be cleaned regularly with a vacuum cleaner as you would any traditional carpet or rug, to remove normal dust and debris. We recommend an upholstery tool vacuum nozzle attachment for the most effective vacuum cleaning method. After washing or after prolonged usage, a light amount of talcum or baby powder can be applied to the rug to renew its supple texture. You are responsible for the care of your rug and we cannot be held liable if damages occur from improper care.
