We recommend that you follow this maintenance guideline section to protect the purchased carpet .
Carpet fibers are designed to hide soil and reflect light. Consequently, soil in carpet is not as visible as it is on smooth flooring where soil remains on the surface and is easily seen. The ability of today’s carpet fibers to hide soiling is a positive feature. However, the lack of apparent soiling does not eliminate the need for regular cleaning.
Soil can damage the fibers permanently if allowed to remain in the pile.
Even with carpet’s ability to resist soiling and stains, a regular maintenance program extends the life and appearance of your carpet
Regular Vacuuming: Ideally, vacuum all the floor coverings a minimum of once a week, and the high-traffic areas more often, based on the usage. Alternatively you can use a hardstick broom to clean the carpet as well.
If you have pets, you may need to vacuum some areas daily. Removing loose soil while it remains on the carpet’s surface is important so that it is not walked into the carpet pile.
Use a vacuum cleaner that effectively removes soil and minimizes generating dust from the filters and around the machine. Shedding, or fluffing, is a natural characteristic of all wool or wool blend pile carpets. Loose bits of natural fiber can appear on the carpets surface and can be removed with gentle vacuuming. Some carpets, especially wool berbers, require a vacuum with very mild or no agitation device (suction only). Improper maintenance or overly aggressive vacuum methods can distort the carpet pile and cause fuzzing.
Deep Cleaning –When &How :Weekly vacuuming is the most important cleaning
activity, but restorative cleaning must be performed to remove stubborn or embedded soil.
We recommend that your carpet be cleaned using a restorative cleaning method every 12
months before soiling shows.
Professional Cleaning Services should be considered before your carpet begins to show
soil. Letting carpet become excessively soiled will make cleaning more difficult and shorten the
carpet’s useful life.
Loose Threads: Do not pull out any loose threads. Use scissors to cut them.
Storage: Roll the carpet for storage, do not fold.
Stains & Spills: Use liquid detergent with water to clean the stains. Dip a white clean cotton cloth and wipe off the stains. Attend to stains immediately and avoid leaving them overnight.
Shedding: Since this is a handmade carpet made out of natural fibre , light shedding is natural. If there is excessive shedding use a vacuum cleaner over the entire area of the carpet.
