Jute and other plant-based rugs are some of the most popular on the market today. Jute is a long, shiny vegetable fiber that is often spun into coarse, strong threads.
Jute has two primary uses: as a backing of a rug and in combination with other fibers like wool as a secondary face yarn. Jute is tough and makes for a great rug in high traffic areas. But cleaning a jute rug is difficult and is usually best left to professionals.
We Clean Jute Rugs
Fuzzy Wuzzy’s team of expert rug cleaners are extremely familiar with jute area rugs. These rugs are very resistant to conventional cleaning methods. Many rug cleaners will use too much moisture when cleaning jute, which can permanently damage the fibers.
Our technicians go through an extensive pre-inspection of every rug we clean. Jute that is exposed to a lot of moisture can shrink and tear, essentially ruining the rug. Our in-plant cleaning process uses a low-moisture method, and we use an agitator to work the dirt out of the rug without having to saturate the entire rug.
Jute can easily lose its shape, and the colors will bleed if it’s exposed to too much water. The risk of having your jute rug cleaned by any other cleaner is not worth it. Choose Fuzzy Wuzzy.

How to Clean a Jute Rug
Our professionals recommend that you have your jute area rug cleaned every 12 to 18 months. Following that schedule will preserve the life of your jute rug, and require minimal cleaning yourself at home.
In between cleanings at Fuzzy Wuzzy, you can maintain the look of your jute rug by doing the following:
- Use a soft bristle brush and a little water to clean up spills. Use a dry cleaning powder to clean the rug.
- Vacuum a jute rug twice a week.
- Dry any wet spills with a hair dryer or fan.
