Paper Rugs. The new rug nightmare.
Just when you thought decorators could not create rugs any worse than choosing fibers like sisal or viscose for their clients... here's a new one for you - paper.
Yes, I said paper.
With the recommended method of cleaning rugs always being to wash them, you now have a fiber that literally cannot get wet. And a fiber that is being twisted and woven to look just like sisal, which can get wet. Do you see the danger here?
This means at some point soon, there will be an unsuspecting cleaner who is going to decide to wash, or steam clean, a sisal rug, and it going to literally see the rug come apart. If you have ever gotten a cardboard box wet, you know where I am going with this.
Here is what you must know about these rugs in my latest post:

This is not only valuable information for you as a cleaner, but information to share with your clients so that you can help them to avoid making a bad purchase like this (and some of these rugs can be pricey).
Enjoy the content, and Happy Rug Cleaning!
P.S. Enrollment has started for my next online rug course. It's 8 weeks of lessons, and a super cheap price. You can find the details on the "rug training" page on the blog.
