Some advice on keeping your new rug in the best possible condition while also prolonging the life of your purchase.
Your new rug will last longer and look better if a routine of regular vacuuming is followed. Vacuuming helps prevent dirt on the surface of the rug filtering down into the pile where it can accumulate and caused increased wear. For routine cleaning we recommend the use of a suction type vacuum cleaner. We also suggest that you rotate your rug on a regular basis particularly if the rug is continually exposed to direct sunlight which can have a bleaching effect on the yarn.
Spills and Stains
The basic rule for dealing with those little accidents is to act fast. Blot up excess spills with a clean white cloth or paper towel. Never rub, as this can spread the stain. Once the stain is contained, work from the outer edge to the centre applying a proprietary carpet cleaner with a clean cloth. Avoid soaking the affected area as this can spread the stain. Once clean, pat excess moisture with paper towels and allow to dry. On stubborn stains, repeat the process until the stain is completely removed. Should stains or spills prove hard to remove, we recommend to use a professional cleaning company.
