Care instructions

How long your rug will last depends very much on how you care for it. A rug that gets attention and is properly looked after will have a long life and bring you pleasure in many years.

 

Rotate your rug occasionally, so that it will wear evenly over the whole surface. A pile rug can be rotated only, while a woven rug can be turned over as well as rotated. We recommend the use of rug underlay (anti slip) For reduced wear, improved comfort, non-slip properties and easy vacuuming.

It is normal that pile rugs shed much in the beginning. Frequent vacuuming will shorten this period of shedding. For high pile rugs with recommend vacuuming only using the tube of the vacuum cleaner, so that the foot of the vacuum cleaner does not turn the pile into felt.

 

A wool rug needs just a little attention. All that has to be done for it to retain its appearance over the years is to follow three basic rules:

  1. Vacuuming regularly increases the lifetime of your rug. Rotate the rug so that it will wear evenly. For pile rugs, always finish by vacuuming in the direction of the pile.
  2. Remove stains immediately! Read more under Clean Kit.
  3. Clean the rug only if it is very dirty, and cannot be treated with stain removal. The rug should then be cleaned by a renowned cleaner with professional flat washing..
