Modern vacuum cleaners are too strong for most antique rugs. Instead use a canister vacuum--or better yet, a carpet sweeper. Do not vacuum a rug the long way. Go side-to-side to avoid the fringe. Vacuum the back of the rug about once a year.

Rugs are better cleaned with the hand of the professionals since using vacuum cleaners and chemicals may damage your antique rug.
