1. LEATHER RUG:
Follow these steps to clean/care your leather carpets:
- Include the rug in normal cleaning routine, simply vacuum with the power reduced to the rug setting and the vacuum head brush in the down position.
- Brushing with a hard plastic bristle brush or broom helps to keep the hair soft and fluffy and helps to remove dirt and larger particles trapped in the hair.
- Rotate your rug or move to a different location from time to time so that it wears evenly.
- On a sunny day you can put your rug outside with the underside facing the sun on a clean cotton sheet to prevent from dust.
- Shake your rug to remove dust and small dry particles of dirt.
- Do not soak or get it too wet. DO NOT wash in a washing machine or dry clean.
- For common spills like red or white wine, coffee, tea, juice, food, soup, urine and vomit – soak up spills with a paper towel or sponge immediately. Wipe your rug smoothly in the direction of the hair with a damp (but not wet) cloth with mild soap and water. Finally clean with a damp cloth using a diluted 5% white vinegar and 95% water solution, this balances the PH levels and helps to eliminate unpleasant odors.
2. WOOLEN CARPET:
Although we stand behind our product, slight care of these designer carpets will help them last long :
When first taken out of the packing and unrolled, the rug may have bulges that will prevent it from laying flat on the floor. This occurs due to tight rolling during shipment. It will disappear in a day or two. If the problem persists please put a heavy flat object on top of it for sometime and it will help in solving the problem.
During initial use, you will notice some shedding of the wool pile. This is a common occurrence with any wool/viscose product and does not reflect on the actual wear ability of the rug.
Vacuum regularly. Remove any grease spots with ordinary wool cleaning detergents. The frequency of cleaning varies according to the traffic the rug receives. Caked on dirt is difficult to remove, so you need to be careful to prevent this from happening.
You may have the cleaning done professionally, depending on your personal requirement and the state of the rug. Before getting professional help, make sure of certain things: • Be sure that the cleaner knows how to clean your particular type of rug. Cleaning a hand knotted or a hand-tufted rug is a lot different from cleaning wall-to-wall carpet!
- Inspect the rug with the cleaner. Note existing stains and damage before it is cleaned.
- If you spill something on the rug, clean it immediately. This will help in preventing the stain from setting in. Remember, once the stain sets in, it becomes that more difficult to clean it.
- Never rub a spill, as it forces the spill deeper into the rug. Always, blot with clean white cloth. Removing as much moisture from the spill as possible by blotting with a clean, white, absorbent cloth is the key.
- Use lukewarm water containing a wool cleaning liquid to remove any residual stain.
- If water does not help, you can always use a solvent to remove a spill. Remember to pretest the solvent on a small area of the rug by applying a few drops, then blotting with a clean, white, absorbent cloth.
- Always, use clean tap water to remove any residual cleaner, and absorb any remaining moisture with dry towels. When dry, vacuum pile to restore texture.
- If the preceding steps do not help in proper cleaning of the rug, please send it to a reputable professional cleaner.
3. Microfiber RUGS :
When the rugs get heavily soiled or dirty, wash as follows:
- Machine wash in warm water, with detergent. Washing at a warm temperature makes the microfibers expand, releasing trapped dirt and micro particles.
- Do not wash with terry towels or other materials that “shed” a lot of lint. Wash them separately with articles that don’t shed a lot of lint.
- Air or machine dry.
- DO NOT USE FABRIC SOFTENERS.
- DONOT use Bleach of any kind.
WARNING: Over a period of time, harsh chemicals, such as those contained in bleach and fabric softeners, will decrease the effectiveness and durability of the microfiber material.
4. COTTON RUGS :
Like every handmade product this product also requires care to maintain its beauty, for which we suggest you the following: Do not pull loose ends; instead trim with a pair of scissors. Occasionally a cotton strip may pull out of the rug, this is an intrinsic part of the construction itself and is not a’ defect’. Do not dryclean. Do not Iron. Do not tumble dry. Do not Bleach.
Wash instruction :
- 40 D Machine wash.
- Don’t use BLEACH
- Tumbled Dry.
- Wash separately
- Use mild detergent
