Question: How do I clean and care for my new rug?
Answer: Vacuum it regularly, but do not use the beater bar. Spot clean the rug when needed using only a mild carpet cleaning solution for wool, and let it air dry. Professional carpet cleaning is recommended. Do not dry clean.
The kids…the dog…a clumsy party guest. Accidents happen. In fact, removal of spots and spills is one of the most crucial areas of carpet maintenance. When anything is dropped or spilled, quick response with the proper cleaning material can save the day…and your carpet!
When accidents happen
- Blot up liquids with white paper towels or absorbent cloth; scoop up solids with the end of a knife or spoon.
- Treat the spot according to the cleaning instruction chart below.
- Apply spot removal agent to clean towel or cloth, not directly to the spot. Use small quantities at a time. Always work inwards from the edge to prevent spreading. Do not rub, as this may cause the spot to spread or distort the pile. Do not over-wet the carpet pile.
- Afterwards, blot as dry as possible with clean towel.
Naturally Easy Maintenance
To protect the investment made in a wool carpet or rug, it’s important to follow prescribed maintenance periodically to keep it looking and performing at its best. Cleaning at regular intervals – rather than waiting until the carpet is heavily soiled – actually extends its life. And when carpet life is increased, so is the return on your investment.
Properly maintained carpets enhance the appearance and atmosphere of interiors either contract or residential. A well-maintained wool residential or commercial carpet absorbs dirt, airborne dust particles, fumes and noise. It even makes the indoor environment more hygienic. Maintenance makes sense. Maintaining the beauty of wool carpet is exceptionally easy – in fact, a lot easier than most people think. You see, wool’s unique and complex fiber structure releases soil up to 25% more readily than synthetic carpet. Not only that, its scaly outer structure holds soil high on the pile, right where the vacuum can lift it out. Quickly and easy.
