Where you place your rug will have a material effect on the longevity and look of your rug over time. Exposure to direct sunlight over long periods can cause the colour of a rug to fade. It is best to rotate your rug to ensure even wear.
When placing your furniture on top of a rug, lightly set it down and then move it slightly in the direction of the pile at least once a week. Do not keep your rugs in damp or wet areas as mold will appear on your rug.
Care & Maintenance
For surface cleaning - use a sponge, wipe a mixture of a mild dish soap and water lightly over the entire surface of the rug. Remove by wiping again using a clean cloth.
For deep cleaning - your rug should be professionally cleaned every 3-5 years or when you notice the colours to be less vibrant. Rugs in extremely high traffic areas may require more frequent cleaning.
Vacuum your rug using a low powered vacuum cleaner, should long ends of yarns appear on surface do not pull. Use scissors to trim yarn evenly with the rug surface.
How to remove stains
The best way to remove any stain is to treat it immediately. Dilute the area with soda water or water and salt and let absorb into the stain. Using a clean, white cloth or paper towel, cover the area and press down several times with your hand or foot. Continue to blot and wipe the area until the stain is removed.
DO NOT RUB - this will only work the stain into the fibres much deeper. If the stain persists, contact a professional rug cleaning specialist.
Care by Material
WOOL - Use only cold water when cleaning wool to avoid shrinkage. If spill occurs, blot immediately, then clean up with mild soap and cold water. Do not use oxygen cleaners on your wool rug.
VISCOSE - Avoid scrubbing your rug when cleaning. Blot the area with the stains or spills. Use hair dryer on cool setting to dry any wet areas. Vacuum across the width.
