Rug Care

100% New Zealand Wool carpets are naturally resistant to soil and stains, due to the inherent properties of this material.

·

It is normal for new rugs to shed unnecessary loose fibers and, depending upon the usage, can last for the first few months.

·

Vacuum once per week and more frequently in high-traffic areas.

·

Be sure to use a gentle vacuum setting for more delicate materials like dull silk.

·

Treat stains immediately after a spill.

·

Blot wet stains to soak excessive moisture.

·

To remove stains, wipe gently with a clean, white cloth using lukewarm water or bleach-free cleaning solution (follow instructions on package and test a small, inconspicuous area first).

·

Gently remove dry stains without liquid, if possible.

·

Avoid using hot water, any chemicals or solvents.

·

Professional care is recommended, especially for silk rugs, due to the delicate nature of the material.

·

Seek professionals with the Rug Cleaning Technician (RCT) certification.
