There is no point in denying it Shag Area Rugs are back in fashion. They come in many different colours, textures and fibers. They compliment any decor and pets love them. They are not my favorite type of rug due to the fact that they are high maintenance.
Yes Shags are very high maintenance. They need to be cleaned more often than lower pile rugs, and they need to be vacuumed carefully. Here is a short video showing how to get a lot more loose dirt out of your shag rug
Shag rugs should be vacuumed weekly. Since the fibers of a shag rug act like Velcro they trap dirt easier than most other rugs, along with earrings, small toys, coins, and crayons. Those are just a few of the things we find hiding in shag rugs when they come in for cleaning.
Shag rugs are nostalgic for some and retro chic for others, no matter why you fell in love with your shag remember that it needs lots of attention in the cleaning department. You paid a lot for your shag make the most of your investment by vacuuming often and shaking out the lost treasures.
