FAQ

Rug Storage November 05 2020

  • If you are planning to store your rug, please have it cleaned first. 
  • Rugs should be rolled straight without folding and wrapped in a breathable material such as kraft paper.
  • Place on dry shelf in a temperature controlled space.

Rug Vacuuming November 05 2020

  • Rugs should be vacuumed on a regular basis to remove dirt and lessen the build up of soil.
  • Kush Rugs recommends a suction based vacuum that has variable suction, such as a Miele.
  • If you have a beater bar vacuum, raise the bar to its maximum height.

Rug Washing November 05 2020

  • Cleaning intervals depend on your environment and use of the rug. We advise having your rug washed every 3 - 5 years. Rugs in commercial settings, or high traffic areas such as kitchens, require more frequent cleaning.
  • If your beautiful rug takes on a dull appearance, it's probably time for a cleaning!

Spot Cleaning Rugs November 05 2020

If you are unsure how to proceed with a spill, Kush recommends calling Renaissance Rug Cleaning Inc. t: 503.963.8565

  • For liquid spills, start by blotting with a clean white towel.
  • Gently remove as much of a spot, or spill as possible with a towel, or vacuum before using cleaning products.
  • Do not use over the counter products. Many cleaning products are too aggressive for handmade rugs.
  • A mild spot cleaning solution can be made with 1-2 drops of hand dish detergent to a cup of warm water. Blot, never scrub.
  • Test all spotting products in a inconspicuous area first.
  • Work from the outer edge of the spot towards the center. 
  • For oil based spots, apply rubbing alcohol to a towel in small amounts and blot the spot.
  • Some spots are best handled by a professional; such as ink, paint spills, dried wine, and old pet spots. Traditional hand washing is usually able to address most cleaning dilemmas.

Receiving Rugs October 30 2020

Congratulations on your Kush Rug!

Please unwrap your rug as soon as possible. Take care to not cut into the rug or fringe while unwrapping.

CREASES

Crease marks from shipping should disappear in about a week or two after unwrapping. To accelerate the process, back-roll or reverse roll the carpet before laying flat.

For stubborn creases, use a steamer, or the steam from an iron on the crease. Please don’t place an iron directly on the rug. Take care not to overwet the rug. Then back-roll or reverse roll the carpet before laying flat. 

STORAGE

If you are not installing immediately, please unwrap, unfold, and  re-roll straight (with no folds) . Rugs stored folded will develop deep crease marks.

Rugs for long term storage should be wrapped in breathable paper like kraft / tyvek paper and the seams taped to prevent rug pests from damaging the rug. Store the rug in a cool, dry environment off the ground. Please don’t place anything on top of the rug that could compress the fibers.
