Rugs Care & Maintenance

At Fenton & Fenton, we are passionate about delivering high quality crafted interiors that are made for the long haul. But there are some accidents we’d rather avoid, and that’s because every material, every texture and every piece is crafted with care.

All our rugs are certified by GoodWeave, which ensures no child labour is used in our production and that fair and ethical working conditions are maintained.

1. Caring For Your Dhurrie

Vacuum regularly, this is the easiest way to keep your dhurrie clean.
Remove spills immediately; if liquid, blot with clean, un-dyed cloth by pressing firmly around the spill to absorb as much as possible.
Avoid direct and continuous exposure to sunlight.
Do not pull loose ends - clip them with scissors to remove.

For hard-to-remove stains, professional rug cleaning is recommended. We suggest Kings Rug Wash & Melbourne Rug Wash.

2. Underlay & Functionality

To enhance the functionality of your dhurrie, you may like to consider purchasing an underlay. This will add softness and help to prevent 'dhurrie creep' on hard floors. It is slightly tacky, approximately 4mm thick and the dhurrie is simply laid over it, preserving its reversibility.

This can be ordered from King's Rug Wash in Oakleigh. Once you give them your rug dimensions, Kings Rug Wash will generally cut the underlay within 48 business hours. You can choose to have the underlay sent, or if you are in Melbourne they will deliver and lay the rug for you.

3. Caring For Your Carpet

Vacuum regularly on a low-power setting to prevent debris from settling into roots of the fibres. Use a vacuum cleaner without a beater brush as it may cause damage to the pile. Shedding of loose fibres will occur but will diminish over time. Expect the most shedding to occur within the first 3-6 months.

Remove spills immediately; if liquid, blot with clean, un-dyed cloth by pressing firmly around the spill to absorb as much as possible. Avoid direct and continuous exposure to sunlight. Do not pull loose ends. Clip them with scissors to remove.
