General Rug Care & Maintenance Instructions ForΒ The Blue Knot.

Important Points Of Care, Cleaning & Maintenance Which Are Necessary To Follow During Rug Use:

AVOID DIRECT SUNLIGHT

Placing rugs in direct and continuous sunlight (or to any other intense light such as halogen bulbs) will cause them to fade. It is best to avoid placing a rug in direct sunlight (or high intense light) if possible. Fading will happen slowly over time, and this bleaching effect will permanently damage your rug. It occurs more obviously with darker-colored rugs and natural fibers. Also, some colors may transfer on light-colored surfaces.

AVOID HEAVY & SHARP EDGE FURNITURE MARKS

Be aware that some heavy furniture can mark and flatten the pile in rugs, causing irreversible damage. Some heavy or sharp-edged furniture pieces, or constant moving of furniture, can pull the rug out of shape so it appears less square. In such conditions use rug protectors under the legs of heavy furniture to avoid flattening of your rug pile.

AVOID ANY FIBER-GUARD PROTECTION OR TREATMENT ON OUR RUGS

Please do not apply any stain-resistant/fiber-guard on our hand tufted rugs. it may damage the rug's softness, texture, and durability. According to our earlier testing reports, fiber-guarding was not successful for tufted woolen piles and also affected some ideal properties of our woolen rugs.

PROFESSIONAL RUG CLEANING ONCE EVERY 6-12 MONTHS

Rugs and carpets trap allergens and bacteria, aggravating allergies and increasing the chance of contracting colds and flu. The easiest way to improve indoor air quality is to clean the allergens and bacteria from your carpet. Dirt and grit abrade the fibers of your rug or carpet, decreasing its longevity and degrading the color. Don’t let hidden soil grind the beauty out of your carpet.

Try to have your rugs professionally cleaned once every 6-12 months, using a professional carpet/rug cleaner. Although vacuuming can remove some dirt, professional cleaning is much more effective. Professional cleaning should be carried out only by a reputable company, and they should avoid using any shampoos or cleaners with a spirit base.
