Some hand hooked rugs are indoor/outdoor rugs with colorfast and mildew resist capabilities, which makes them perfect on the patio or deck. They can also make a kitchen feel cozier. Hand Hooked rugs quickly add character to any space at a reasonable price. They come in a variety of patterns and colors as well as pile height. They can be made in an array of fibers including wool, cotton & polypropylene. A rug pad is recommended for many hand-hooked rugs to allow air to circulate and keep your rug from moving.
There are several tips for caring for your hand-hooked rug. Hand hooked rugs should never be folded. You should roll them lightly with the pile side out. They should never be wrapped in plastic because of trapped moisture will cause mildew. Wrap in clean white cotton and store in a dry place.
When vacuuming do not use beater brush instead use a handheld vacuum. Do not immerse the rug in water because backings may fall apart. Blot out stain with dry cloth. Consult a professional rug cleaner for any questions or complete cleaning advice on hand-hooked rugs.
