The secret to preserving color and softness

Choosing the right carpet for interior decoration is just the beginning. To ensure that your beautiful rugs and carpets shine for years, it’s essential to be familiar with maintenance principles. Our experts recommend a few simple tips to help maintain the quality of your carpets.

Rotate Periodically:

Weather conditions and sunlight can damage your carpet. By following simple guidelines, you can minimize this impact. Avoid placing the carpet under excessive pressure or direct sunlight for extended periods. Over time, if furniture legs are placed on a specific part of the carpet, its fibers may become flattened, and the color may fade. Rotating the carpet every six months prevents these issues.

Vacuuming a carpet

Regular Vacuuming:

Regular vacuuming is crucial for maintaining a carpet, but the frequency depends on the carpet’s location. Under normal conditions, weekly vacuuming is sufficient. However, if the carpet is in a high-traffic area or regularly used by children and pets, it’s better to increase the frequency. Regular vacuuming removes dust and other harmful particles from the carpet fibers, helping it stay fresh. Avoid using a rotating brush vacuum for natural fiber carpets like wool and silk, as it may cause damage.

Carpet stain removal

Prompt Stain and Accident Cleanup:

As the old saying goes, “A stitch in time saves nine.” Avoid spills on the carpet, and be cautious that children and pets don’t have an accident on it. However, if something spills on the carpet, it’s recommended to immediately blot the stain with an absorbent cloth or towel to prevent the liquid from penetrating deep into the carpet. Gently blot the stain and avoid spreading it over the carpet. Vigorous rubbing may have the opposite effect, pushing the stain deeper into the fibers. For cleaning mud or any other complex strains on the carpet, break the lump into minute pieces rather than scraping it off to avoid damage to the fibers. You can also use recommended stain removers and cover the underside with dry towels to absorb moisture. Chemical solvents or commercial stain removers are preferred to household solutions like baking soda, vinegar, etc., that may damage the carpet.

Professional Assistance:

The techniques mentioned above are suitable for daily carpet care. However, seeking professional help at least once a year is advisable for a thorough cleaning. This helps in preserving the quality of your carpet.

Use of Rubber Underlay:

Carpets naturally lack anti-slip properties. However, there is a solution to this issue. Anti-slip rubber underlays (carpet padding) are available in the market and can be placed under the carpet to prevent slipping. In addition, these rubber underlays also help prevent the carpet from wrinkling and maintain its shape. A sturdy underlay protects the carpet’s bottom and underside against friction and wear.

Rolling up a carpet

Regular Maintenance and Storage:

Like any other valuable item, carpets need to be regularly checked for signs of wear. Trim any loose fibers or sprouts with scissors. Keep the fringe clean and tangle-free, and avoid using chemicals such as chlorine. Clean and store the carpet if you are not using it. With the pile facing inward, roll it tightly and wrap it carefully to protect the fibers. Our experts recommend wrapping it in a muslin or a polyurethane sheet, not a plastic sheet, to allow the carpet to breathe. Store it in a dry, well-ventilated space, away from sunlight. Ensure that the carpet is inspected for pests every few months. With these simple tips, your carpet will stay as fresh and vibrant as the first day.
