>Acrylic Shag

>Here is a video of me talking about an Acrylic Shag area rug. These shag rugs are in the rug buyer’s beware group.

They are very beautiful rugs, but really shouldn’t be used in a room where they get used a lot. If area rugs came with a label telling of where to use this rug it would say in a lightly used area.

They stain very easily, so they are not great for pets or in an area where they could get food and drink split on them.

I know that they are very beautiful, shiny and new, but they don’t clean well and they hold in a lot of dry dirt.

The fibers can also be easily pulled out either by hand or by the vacuum. Plus these rugs are hard to vacuum.

We have to do it by hand here at Luv-A-Rug before we clean it.

Once you start to walk on this type of fiber (acrylic) it quickly looses it’s beautiful sheen.

Next time you are walking through your favorite Home store and you see one of these beautiful shag, ask yourself where would you use and if it is practical for your household.

Thinking about where you will use the rug greatly determines what type of rug you should buy.

  1. >Sparkle Shaggy rugs look great, I usually shake mine outside then hoover it with an attachment on my vacuum, I have spot cleaned the rug with carpet shampoo and it did look like a new rug. sparkle shaggy rugs are one of my favourite rugs, My personal rug is in the Silver colour.
