Zebra Rug Care Details

The Burchell’s Zebra Rugs that we sell of tanned professionally so care is not difficult. The following are a few simple tips on how to take care of your rug.

1. It is not recommended that a hair-on zebra rug should be vacuumed. If dust is seen on your zebra rug then taking your rug out side and beaten with a broom to get the dust off is acceptable.
2. If something liquid is spilt on your rug it should quickly be blotted off with a sponge or cloth.
3. At no time should the zebra rug be soaked with water or any other liquid. This can cause great harm to you rug. A qualified professional can hydrate the rug and put on a stretch rack under control conditions without negative effects if the zebra skin was in good conditional before the work is done.
4. Pet stains of any kind are negative and should be avoided.
5. Professionals who represent that they can clean your zebra rug should be scrutinized. We have seen mixed results by most cleaning methods and this is no substitute for keeping your rug in good condition to avoid the need for such services.
6. Extended heavy exposure to sunlight can dry your zebra rug out just as it would any leather product. If possible you rug should be kept in a place where it is not exposed the harmful direct sun light all day.
7. The felt border and backing can be cleaned with a lint brush as needed.
