Maintaining and caring for your carpet
This Turkish kilim rug is hardwearing and durable. It has a darker colour palette and is low in maintenance. Just an occasional hoover now and then will do. It is best to vacuum it on a lower setting and make sure you also do the reverse now and then as just as much dust accumulates there, as on the front. Furthermore, it is sensible to give your rug a good shake outside every couple of months.
The quicker you deal with spills, the less chance there is of it staining. the effective way to treat a spill, for example red wine, is to apply water to begin with to dilute the stain, followed by mopping it with a kitchen towel straight away.
Start from the outside of the stain and work inwards to limit the affected area, but do not rub the stain as this can damage the yarn. Once a carpet gets wet, it is important to dry it out thoroughly afterwards, to prevent the wool from rotting.
Don’t use any bleach or chemical treatments as they might take the stain out, but leave a white stain instead. When in doubt, professional carpet cleaning will always remain the best choice. If you need advice on this, pleased get in touch.
