LINEN 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
  • 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

EXTRAORDINARY MAINTENANCE


  • gently wash the rug at specialized laundries using water (max 30 degrees) and neutral detergent, let it dry horizontally on a plane surface. Make sure that the drying takes place rapidly and homogeneously on the entire surface of the rug

  • being a vegetable fiber is good to use distilled water in order to reduce the presence of minerals that could cause marks in the drying phase
  • do not use washing machines and industrial centrifuges
  • by washing it may cause a shrinkage of 5/6%


STAIN TREATMENT


  • 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 water
  • proceed carefully without rubbing vigorously to avoid damaging the fiber
