Shyrdaks are extremely durable, especially if they are properly cared for.
Ordinary dirt and debris may be removed by shaking the rug outdoors. Vacuum cleaning should be done on a low setting, but the brush attachment should not make contact with the rug itself.
If drinks are spilled or pet accidents occur on the carpet, absorb the liquid with a dry cloth first. Then, use warm soapy water to remove the stain. It works great to place a bowl under the rug where the spot occurred and rinse the soapy water through the rug with clean water into the bowl below.
Periodic cleaning by a professional with experience in cleaning felt rugs is recommended.
