Product Details

Question: What is the best way to clean deep shag carpet or high pile carpet when a typical vacuum head sinks down and stops rotating?

The high pile shag carpet, often make by Shaw, Tufftex (Tuff Tex), Sutton, CabinCrafts, Couture and Queen, and others and is known as Shaggy Sheik, Casabella, and Peilcan Hill II and more.

The tufts are about 3/8" in diameter and about 3/8" apart from each other and about 2.5" long (other varieties vary). This carpet is too thick to use a roller beater brush on and one shouldn't be used for the carpet's own protection (just ask the manufacturer).

So how do you clean a high pile shag carpet? Use this awesome new tool which actually rakes the carpet while it sucks from the center of two rows of long, stiff, plastic wire fingers. This tool is also called "Rug Tool with Tines". It will help loosen the debris and suck it out of the carpet! In fact many of these long carpet manufacturers recommend "the use of a suction only vacuum for pile construction that is sensitive to brushing or rubbing [by beater brushes]".

I anticipated the need for a special tool to vacuum a new shag area rug I had ordered. I did a quick search and found this long shag- deep pile carpet brush by MD Central Vacuum. It's perfect!

Works great on my shag carpet. I use my vacuum (upright) first then use this on my shag rug...it makes it look brand new.

I'm not sure how well it's cleaning but the carpet looks good after vacuuming. The carpet seems quick to flatten unlike using the Stealth but as it is recommended for long shag, I will continue with it.

This product is great with my Bissell. I have a very high shag piece of carpet and it does the job I need it to.
