Hand-tufted rug care
No matter what kind of rug you have bought, each requires proper care for it to last long. When it comes to hand-tufted rugs, cleaning and care is a major factor. Whether your rug/carpet has been passed on from generations or you have just bought a brand new rug, proper care helps in retaining its charm for years.
Here are some useful tips on how to take care of hand-tufted rugs:
Always vacuum clean hand tufted rugs/carpets on low pressure setting.
Use a flat and even rug pad or underlay to help keep the carpet in place and save it from getting wet. The rugs get dirty easily.
Avoid keeping your rug/carpet in direct sunlight and in order to save the colour from fading away and wear and tear, rotate it regularly.
If you or a child in your house spill any liquid on the carpet/rug, you are advised to clean it immediately so that it does not seep into the carpet/rug.
In case you spill any liquid which is oily, use a little alcohol to wipe it off immediately. If you don’t clean spill immediately it might leave a stain on the carpet/rug. Never leave the spill on the carpet for long as the longer it remains there, the difficult it will be to remove it. Follow the rule “Blot, do not rub”. Use a white paper towel or some absorbent material to cover the spill and continue to blot the paper towel until all the excess moisture from the spill is absorbed by the paper towel.
If a naughty kid at home stick chewing gum on the carpet/rug, you are advised to wait for it to harden or use a freezing spray to remove it. Once you have used freezing spray, hammer the gum and remove the leftovers from the carpet/rug.
Cleaning of Hand tufted rug/carpet
When it comes to rug/carpet care regular vacuuming is very important. For cut pile carpet, beater type vacuum cleaner is best and for loop pile carpets, suction-type vacuum cleaner should be used to minimize sprouting and fuzzing. In case you have a silk shag type carpet, then use a suction- only type vacuum. You can vacuum your carpets/rugs twice a week.
