Washing MachineCare & Washability

Clear the floor and unroll the Rug Pad
Before assembling your 2-piece Rug System, ensure the area you will be laying down your rug on is free of any dirt, pet hair, or other foreign debris. Cleaning the surface underneath your rug upon setup will maximize the performance of the nonslip Rug Pad. The Rug Pad should be placed TPR-side down (“rubbery” texture touching the floor).
Roll the Rug Cover and adhere to short-side edge
With your Rug Cover neatly folded or rolled, begin by adhering the Rug Cover to the short-side edge of the Rug Pad, allowing a 1” overhang on all sides and corners of the Rug Pad. Do not tuck the corners of the Rug Pad into the corners of the Rug Cover. Grab the opposite short-side edge of the Rug Cover, and step back to lay the rest of the Rug Cover down. Keep the Rug Cover lifted as you step back towards the opposite short-side edge to prevent the Rug Cover from sticking prematurely to the Rug Pad. If you rolled the Rug Cover at the start, unroll slowly and adjust as you go.
Smooth and finish
Lift and relax the corners of the Rug Cover as necessary to smooth away the wrinkles. Make sure they are not pulled too tightly.

The Rug Cover, once removed from the underlying Rug Pad, can fit comfortably in a standard or large capacity top or front load washer (with or without an agitator). Our 8’ x 10’ and 5’ x 7’ rugs can fit into a 3.8 cubic feet washer, while our 2.5’ x 7’ and 3’ x 5’ sizes can fit in a 2.2 cubic feet compact washer. The Rug Pad can only be spot-cleaned using a household disinfectant that does not contain bleach or using warm soapy water.

Your Ruggable Rug Cover is stain-resistant and contains an internal waterproof barrier. You can spot-clean or machine-wash it depending on the accident type. For major stains or accidents, we recommend washing your Rug Cover immediately.

We recommend using mild and non-bleach detergent.

No, we do not recommend using fabric softener when washing the Rug Cover as it will lead to flattening of the surface.

To clean your Rug Pad, remove all solids from the surface. Then, place a cloth or towel over the spill to soak up the liquid. If needed, wipe the surface with warm soapy water, rinse, and then hang to dry.

Yes, although, we recommend using low-suction settings when vacuuming your Ruggable Rug System. Please do not use heavy beater brushes or other abrasive vacuum attachments as these may cause damage to the Rug Cover over time. Also, we do not recommend using autonomous robotic vacuum cleaners on your Ruggable Rug System.

Yes, if you would like to take extra precaution, a natural compound like Borax and an antifungal compound like EC3 will be safe and will not compromise the integrity of our rugs. Our rugs are already hypoallergenic, latex-free, and easily cleaned in your washing machine, eliminating worries of mold for our customers affected by sensitivity to these allergens.
