Shake out the rug or beat it with a rug beater, stick, tennis racket, etc
Expose to direct sunlight at least twice a year for 3 hours. If you put the shyrdak into storage, use mothballs.
DO NOT wash with water and brush. If the shyrdak gets stained, lightly dab it with a damp cloth and soapy water. Then iron the damp spot.
DO NOT vacuum the shyrdak. The suction and bristles can destroy the felt.
