CONTEMPORARY RUGS

ADVICE FOR CARE AND MAINTENANCE

  • regularly clean the carpet to avoid an excessive accumulation of dirt
  • use a traditional vacuum cleaner - medium power - with plain nozzle, without rotating brushes. Do not use the carpet-beater. Do not act too vigorously on the edges to prevent the fiber from damage
  • to revitalize the appearance of the fiber clean the carpet with a cloth slightly dampened with cold water
  • avoid direct and continuous sunlight. A slight change of tone may still occur even in non-direct light conditions
  • do not pull the fibers that may come loose from the carpet, simply cut off them with scissors
  • periodically rotate the rug in order to make uniform wear and exposure to light
  • not leave residual humidity between the fibers which might in time facilitate the formation of mold
  • the carpet needs a relaxation period during which it lose any tensions due to rolling and packaging
  • in the first period of use many rugs made from soft and pleasant to touch fibers could release some fluff residues as a result of use. The phenomenon is completely normal and does not affect the quality of the carpet. It tends to run out in a few months when initiating the process of felting. Regular aspiration activities keeps clean the carpet until the phenomenon stops

  • for each type of stain you may dab immediately with a clean and absorbent cloth in order to prevent the substance from corroding fiber
  • then you can clean the stained part with a cloth dampened in warm water
  • proceed carefully without rubbing vigorously to avoid damaging the fiber
