    "The make or quality MTA contribute to carpets/rugs shedding.

    Here are some tips to minimise that:

    1) Lightly vacuum it regularly, going with the grain of the pile and not against it.

    2) Make sure not to use a heavy beater bar or have the vacuum on the setting closest to the ground.

    3) Use a high-quality rug pad under the rug to absorb shock and reduce further damage to the pile.

    4) If possible, move it to a low-traffic area."
