To make the right choice, you will need to take many factors into consideration, such as style, size, and cost. You may also wonder how and where the area rug was made, not to mention the overall quality and durability of the product.
All of these individual factors are determined by one source, the manufacturer. To narrow down your decision in finding the perfect rug, start by finding the manufacturer that meets all of your area rug requirements and preferences.

Given that a Surya rug is an investment, you want to ensure the protection of your purchase.
As a manufacturer, Surya offers a 1 Year Limited Warranty with the purchase of any Surya rug.
The warranty covers any manufacturer defects that may occur within the first year of use. If a manufacturing defect has been identified upon receipt of rug or develops under normal conditions of use, Surya will repair or replace the damaged rug without charge.
The warranty does not cover any accidental damage to a rug. Further, there are external elements that may affect the appearance of a Surya rug over time, such as changes in shape, colour, and/or shedding. The Surya warranty does not consider such a manufacturer’s defect.
Care & Cleaning
Although some damage and wear are unavoidable over time, there are ways to care for and clean your Surya rug, as recommended by the manufacturer.
Surya has a comprehensive Rug Care and Cleaning Guide that offers tips that can be applied to several types of rugs.
Surya recommends using a canister vacuum without a beater bar as the optimal type of vacuum to use on rugs. Brooms and manual sweepers are also gentle and effective.
It is recommended to refrain from running the vacuum over the edges of the rug. If a rug is reversible, remember to vacuum both sides.
When a spill occurs, it is important to clean the spill immediately. If you wait too long the stain will set in and become very difficult to clean.
Scrape off any food or debris with a dull instrument. Blot a spill with dry cotton or a clean paper towel. Work from the outer edges of the spill towards the center to prevent the spreading of the stain.
Never rub a spill as this will force the spill deeper into the rug.
Handmade rugs require a different cleaning process, so be sure to hire a professional expert for this job.
Outdoor Rug Care
Outdoor products require regular care and cleaning and should be stored inside when they are not in use. Leaving an outdoor rug indirect, or even indirect, sunlight outdoors will cause rapid fading.
Further, leaving an outdoor rug in rain or humid weather will cause rapid deterioration and mold.
Special Care Based on Construction
Hand-Knotted Rugs require extra caution and care when cleaning due to the high value of these rugs.
Hand Woven (Flat Weave) rugs require regular vacuuming on both sides of the rug to remove any grit that may cause premature wearing.
Hand Woven (Shag/Texture) also requires extra caution and care when vacuuming, but alternatively, you can take the rug outside to shake it out.
Special Care Based on Material
|Wool / NZ Wool
|Mix a small amount of dish soap with cold water to help remove stains; regular vacuuming will help to curtail shedding sooner.
|Polypropylene / Olefin / Polyolefin
|Mix a small amount of dish soap with cold water to help remove stains.

La-Z-Boy clients love Surya rugs, says Magaly.

While many clients adore their Surya rug, some clients have also expressed some concern with their products.
Design, Colour, Size
Many Surya rugs are handmade. It is important to keep in mind that handmade rugs may have slight variations in colour, design, and size over time. Additionally, machine woven rugs may slightly vary in size.
Although some customers complain about this, it is not considered a defect.
Shedding & Sprouts
Another common complaint in Surya rugs is shedding. Shedding is normal for rugs but the severity of the shedding can vary depending on construction and content.
Luckily, the shedding will usually subside over time. Typically it takes 20 to 25 time vacuuming to curtail shedding.
You may also experience sprouting, which is when loose yarns are pulled up above the surface of the rug. This is also normal and can vary depending on construction and content.
Simply use scissors to carefully trim and remove sprouting.
When the Surya rug first arrives, some customers complain about creasing.
Creasing can occur due to the way in which the rugs are rolled for storage and shipping purposes. Within a week or two of the rug being unrolled and laid out flat, the creasing should disappear.
The dyes, yarns, backing, and packing material used in the manufacturing of Surya rugs all have natural odours.
These natural scents can be magnified after being sealed for storage and shipping, which is sometimes a complaint from Surya rug owners.
Any odours should dissipate within a week of unpacking.
Finally, the colour of Surya rugs will fade over time, even if the material is resistant to fading.
In order to slow down the natural effect of fading, try to keep your Surya rug away from direct sunlight. To equally distribute the fading, rotate your rug every 3 to 6 months.
Purchasing a Surya Rug at La-Z-Boy
Known primarily as the inventor of the iconic recliner chair, many consumers don’t realize that La-Z-Boy provides a wide range of home furnishing products. With over 90 years in the home furnishing market, La-Z-Boy has partnered with similar innovative experts in the field, such as Surya.
