Why Choose Our Jute Rug Cleaning Solutions

While not particularly difficult to clean and maintain, jute rugs do come with their own set of particularities, just like other area rug models.

For starters, they are manufactured by hand using natural fibers which are extracted from jute plants. This means they are eco-friendly, non-polluting, and biodegradable. While their lifespan can be effectively prolonged using the right cleaning and maintenance, disposing of them is also done incredibly easily given their biodegradable features.

Exposure to moisture and large amounts of water when using standard shampooing or steam cleaning methods is likely to cause the fibers to darken their color and shrink. This is why we  only choose dry cleaning solutions that have already been tested and which have proven their results.

Here is how the jute rug cleaning procedure is usually handled by our professional cleaners:

Rug Assessment

We initiate every cleaning job with a thorough inspection of the state of the rug, the type of dirt and stains that we will be tackling, the weaving and color dyeing techniques used when crafting the rug, the mix of fabrics in it, and the amount of moisture in it. The procedure is executed on both sides of the rug, especially given the fact that most jute rugs are reversible and can be used on both sides.

At the end of the inspection, we will know which is the safest, most efficient, and risk-free cleaning technique we should apply on the rug.

Professional Rug Vacuuming

Before any dry cleaning products are applied, we vacuum the rug to eliminate all traces of dirt, dust, mold, pet hair, and pollen. To make sure no additional damage is done to the fibers, we usually turn off or remove the beater bar. This prevents friction and pulled movements, thus further protecting the fibers.

We also rely on the low suction level setting on our vacuums and move the vacuum in all directions for a thorough job. The bindings on jute rug corners need to be protected during vacuuming. This is usually done with the nozzle attachment. On occasion, we can also use soft brushes on the edges.


Before we decide which cleaning products and methods to use, we always test the products on hidden areas, usually underneath the rug. We also closely follow manufacturers’ cleaning and stain removal instructions.

Dry Cleaning

In order to clean a jute rug, whether it is a woven or a braided model, we often times use a series of eco-friendly dry cleaning sprays, powders, and fabric cleaners that are compatible with the fibers in jute floor coverings.

Spray rug cleaners need to be directly applied to the rug’s surface while following a series of specific steps that our experts are familiar with.

Powder-based rug cleaners are sprinkled on the entire surface of the rug and worked into it with stiff-bristled brushes.

Is it easy to clean a jute rug?

Jute rugs can be hard to clean in some instances, especially when covered in heavy stains or subject to large amounts of deeply embedded dirt in the foundation. Since these rugs cannot be cleaned using standard methods and products based on water, only the safest dry cleaning and vacuuming techniques should be applied.

Can jute rugs shrink when washed using water?

Yes. Unfortunately, large amounts of water and high levels of humidity can seriously affect jute rugs and cause them to shrink.

Can I use a vacuum cleaner on a jute rug?

Absolutely. Jute rugs are best maintained when they are vacuumed once or twice a week.

It is possible to use standard rug cleaners on a jute rug?

Jute rugs are best cleaned with dry cleaning powers, cleaning sprays, and fabric cleaners that are compatible with jute fabrics.

Can I clean a jute rug with a steam cleaner?

It is best to stay away from steam cleaning methods when looking to clean a jute rug because of the potential damage that steam can cause to these floor coverings.

Can I clean a jute rug with baking soda?

Yes. Baking soda acts similarly to regular dry carpet powders that are used to get rid of moisture, lingering smells, and stains on jute rugs.

“Dear Haim,
It has been so very busy here, thank God, that I never had the chance to formally thank you for the absolutely beautiful job you and your team did with our rugs and sofa. I know when a job is superior and such is the case, much to my surprise, upon entering the apartment after you completed the work.

Thank you again – you will ever be our service provider etc…“

Sunlight Customer, Oriental Rug Cleaning

A few weeks ago, I had Haim Shemesh clean my sofa & I was very pleased. He was professional, the price was reasonable & my sofa looks brand new again!

Sunlight Customer, Oriental Rug Cleaning

I had Haim Shemesh from Sunlight clean all my area rugs. He did a fabulous job! They are all handmade Orientals and he took them to a place that soaks them in a tub and hand washes them the way it’s supposed to be done. They look so much better and brighter Haim came to my apt to give me an estimate, took the rugs, then delivered them back to me a week later. He even helped me set them back up, including moving furniture around to do so. Prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend doing business with him!
