Many people prefer to shake or beat the rug outside instead of vacuuming. Both are successful in removing dust and debris. Just simply take the rug outside and shake it or hit it against the wall if it’s too large to shake. This a highly effective way to quickly get off all the surface particles off the rug. Don’t worry though, the hair won’t fall out, our hides are incredibly durable!
The easiest and best way to perform routine cleaning maintenance on your cowhide rug is to simply vacuum your cowhide to remove any surface dust and dirt. Quality cowhides are strong enough to endure any vacuum cleaner.
Every rug benefits from a deep cleaning occasionally and steam cleaning is a highly effective method. So give your rug the occasional deep clean to make it look as fresh and new as the day you bought it. Push your steam cleaner in the direction of the hair to make sure not to get the fibers too saturated. Quality rugs can easily endure steam cleaning without losing any of the fur. Simply allow the rug to air dry after.
Also, on a side note: you should always make sure to vacuum the rug first for the most effective deep clean.
