Professional recommended rug cleaning maintenance is every 1-2 years and we don’t mean a rug dr from the store that can do more harm then good. We me a river replicated full immersion washing that cleans not only the surface fibers but through the rug as well. In-between cleanings by a pro, we recommend vacuuming rug at least 2 times a month. The best way is to beat the rug first then vacuum. We do understand that oversized rugs cant be handled easily so these will need more vacuuming, the back as well as the front of the rug, though for smaller rugs, take these out side and gently beat them against a hard stationary object. This help beat lose the soil as well as loosen deep down soils for extraction from a vacuum cleaner later. If you follow these recommendations your rug will literally last generations.
