General standards for clothing care

• Never let garments get too dirty

• Wash in cold water but do not leave to soak

• Eliminate rust stains with an adequate stain-remover before washing

• When washing, separate pieces subject to oxidation (zips, buckles, etc.)

• Make sure the detergent is dissolved before it touches the garment

 

General standards for rug care 

Remember to vacuum the new rug immediately after setting it and before stepping on it in order to eliminate all fiber residue produced by the rug shaving done in the factory for its final completion. 

 

Vacuuming the rug daily does not harm it; it increases its life. If a rug is not periodically vacuumed, dust or soil particles will penetrate the threading. This in combination with environment pollutants and the effects of traffic will create a layer of dirt that, although not visible, will end up permanently damaging the rug.

 

Vacuuming must be done in one direction only so that the rug remains 'well-combed' and shadows or lines are not noticed.

 

An adequate vacuum cleaner must have enough suction power to extract particles and contribute to raising the threading. A transverse rotatory brush with soft bristles must be added to the standard suction function. It is essential to keep brushes and other suction components clean at all times. It is advisable not to let the dust container or bag fill beyond half the maximum capacity.

 

Before using the vacuum cleaner, remove larger objects on the rug in order to avoid blocking the vacuum’s suction pipe. 

 

Wool is a porous material that absorbs much dirt. Soil and sand particles deposited on the warp and woof, are little sharp silica crystals that, due to their hardness, act as blades cutting the thin threads of the scaly superficial layer, producing unpleasant bald spots on the rug.

 

It is essential to vacuum the rug regularly, especially areas most frequently stepped on. 80% of the dirt on a rug is dry dirt and can be removed with a vacuum cleaner. Always vacuum dust using the brush in the direction of the fiber stream. Premature wear out occurs if one uses the suction pipe. As a rug’s pile is always removed with suction, this will make the rug weaker.

 

Rotate the rug at least once per year (every six months if used frequently and depending on where the rug is placed). Try to avoid exposing the rug to direct sunlight or walking on it excessively.

 

Spilled liquids: Clean the rug immediately. Clean the stain from the edges to the center in order to not enlarge the stain. If a mark remains, be cautious with domestic stain-removers or chemical products such as ammonia, as they can damage the rug. If you decide to use them, first apply to a non-visible area.

 

For thread recovery, lift the thread so that it returns to its position and original state, removing the marks left by furniture legs or compression caused by intense crossing (e.g. in halls, entrances, stairs, etc.) by using a vapor iron suspended approximately 7 cms. from the affected area, allowing it to penetrate the fibers and lift the thread. Afterwards, brush the area with a soft bristle brush, and repeat this process if necessary. Never touch the rug surface with a hot iron.

 

To eliminate a stain, use only absorbent materials that do not fade or discolor (white cotton cloth, towel, sponge, etc.).

 

Only alcohol and other removers can be applied directly to the rug. Always try not to dampen the rug too much. Do not try to remove the stain completely in only one application. Apply the solution as many times as necessary until the stain disappears.

 

Wait the required time for the chemical solutions to react and for the stain to be removed effectively. Dry using a whorl motion. Do not rub with pressure, as this can cause the rug thread to be permanently distorted.

 

Detergents are effective in the wet part of the stains, lubricating and eliminating dampness. It is advisable to use neutral detergents or those special for rugs. There are detergents with enzymes that accelerate the removal of diverse substances (especially organic) and are useful to clean food, milk, blood, starch, sugar, glue stains, etc. They are mostly detergent powder that must be dissolved in warm water before use. It is advised to follow instructions regarding dissolution, temperature and correct application. An effective and easy solution can be prepared by dissolving a spoonful of homemade liquid detergent in a water cup. The procedure is simple: the detergent solution must be applied following the general recommendations listed above; rinse with water to eliminate the detergent and dry carefully using towels or sponges.

  

If you need to store the rug for a long period of time, roll it up in a cylinder, and mothproof before storing. Then, cover the rug with kraft paper and cover it again with a cloth. Do not use plastic, as it will not allow the rug to breath and mold will eventually appear. Keep the rug in a well-ventilated, cool and dry place. Do not store it in a hot storage room or garage.
