Carpet Cleaning and Care Tips


Use a broom or a vacuum cleaner to sweep the front side of the carpet. You should also sweep the back of your carpet by folding the sides biweekly. Wipe your carpet in circular motion with a cloth damped in a detergant water and then with a water damped cloth to wipe of the detergant. Leave your carpet to dry leaving the pile to its weaving direction.

Protect your rug from water and moisture. Your carpet will decay if left in damp and moisturous conditions for extended periods of time. Dry your carpets that you see are moist in a well ventilated area.

Do not fold the fringes under the carpet. Do not wash the fringes with bleaching agents and do not comb them in any way. Such cases will result in the weakening and tearing of the fringes. Consult to an expert if you see your fringes are wearing out and if possible get them repaired.

Use moth preventing agents to keep moth away when you are not using your carpets for a long time. If possible roll your carpets and keep them in a cloth bag. Ventilate your carpet every 6 months. Frequently used and cleaned carpets do not attract moth.
