 CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE

 Proper maintenance protects your investment and keeps your carpets beautiful for years to come

  • Silk and viscose fibers are naturally absorbent, so these carpets should not be used in damp areas or in rooms where spills are likely (such as bathrooms and kitchens)
  • Vacuum frequently to remove surface dirt. To prevent excessive wear on carpet fibers, use a suction-only canister vacuum or adjust your vacuum brush to the setting furthest from the carpet’s surface
  • Immediately remove spills using a clean, dry cloth
  • Immediately blot spills using a clean, dry cloth, then apply a dry cleaning agent such as Capture or Host, following the product instructions. Pre-test on a small, inconspicuous area first. Multiple applications may be needed to clean some stains
  • Natural fiber carpets cannot be steam cleaned or wet shampooed. Instead, use professional cleaning services as needed
  • Like other colored fabrics, silk and viscose carpets can fade if exposed to direct sunlight. Household chemicals and heating fuel emissions can also contribute to fading
  • To prevent dirt from being tracked onto your carpets, place doormats at all commonly used entrances and clean them regularly
  • Change vacuum cleaner bags when half full
  • Regularly check and change heating and air-conditioning filters

 

 TIPS FOR SPOT REMOVAL

 Quick removal of spots and spills is essential for keeping your carpet beautiful. Here are some tips for success:

  • Immediately blot—do not rub—liquid spills with a paper towel or a dry, absorbent cloth. Rubbing can push liquids deeper into carpet fibers, making the stain worse
  • To prevent stains from spreading, work from the outside to the inside of the stain when cleaning
  • Only use dry cleaning products such as Wool Dri Capture, or Host for spot removal. It may take a few minutes for the products to start working. Pre-test product first in an inconspicuous area
  • After the stain has been removed, use paper towels or a dry absorbent cloth to blot residual moisture.
