Care & Use
Vintage rugs that are in good condition have already withstood the test of time.  There is no reason why, if taken care of properly, they will continue to survive for years to come.  While you may worry that your vacuum is too harsh for your rug, frequent vacuuming is in fact necessary to remove everyday dirt that otherwise wears down the rug. Modern Myth does however stipulate that it’s best to use an ordinary suction vacuum without bristles, as the bristles can damage the rug.  Do not use any chemical cleaners as they will damage the material.  We recommend warm water and gentle, chemical-free solutions to ensure colors won’t bleed and materials won’t break down.  Your rug should be sent out once every five years for a professional clean. While regular vacuuming and spot-cleaning are recommended, a professional rug cleaner has the skills and equipment to do a full cleanse of your carpet and ensure that it dries thoroughly in a temperature-controlled setting.  Last but not least, keep your rug away from moisture. If it gets wet, prop it up and let it dry out completely before laying it back on the floor.
