Care instructions Low power vacuum cleaning with a carpet nozzle without bristles or very soft bristles. Rotate the mat 180 degrees regularly. For all Roots Living rugs, we recommend that the rug is cleaned by a professional cleaner, where professionals choose the best possible way to wash the rug. For the Long Pile Linen carpet, we recommend flat washing as a washing method. Good ventilation during the drying process is essential. The shrinkage is about 3-5%.
