Frequently Asked Questions
If the load is concentrated at one point on a carpet, it can strongly depress the fibres of the carpet, however, it is important to know that the fibres will regenerate on their own over time as the carpet is used. This is due to the fat content of the wool as it gives elasticity to the material. Prolonged wear can be avoided by rotating the mat from time to time so that loads are applied at different points.
Oriental carpets look wonderful not only on the floor but also on the wall and give a magical atmosphere to the interior. If you place the carpet on the wall, be sure to reinforce the edge with raw canvas and put the hoops on it. In the case of larger carpets, the load must also be taken into account, otherwise, the material will stretch and deform - it is worth asking a specialist for advice.
Depending on how much stress your carpet is subjected to, it is definitely worthwhile to apply proper care on oriental carpets. One way to do this is to vacuum. An important rule is that vacuuming should be done in the direction of the fibres and rather at a smaller level. If possible, do it on both sides. The not too strong grade is used to protect the knots. The use of cleaning machines should be avoided as they will damage the carpet fibres. Occasionally we can wipe it with a cotton cloth dipped in vinegar and wrung out. There is also a folk care method: placing the surface of the carpet to be cleaned on top of dry and clean garden grass in summer and then pulling it back and forth a few times in two directions.
With these methods, the surface of the carpet is largely cleaned, and more thorough cleaning is left to a specialist.
Everyone can experience that moths can cause great damage not only in the wardrobe but also in the kitchen, and unfortunately, carpets are not spared either, but with proper precautions, this can be prevented. Get a moth spray that is effective against pests but gentle on the carpet. If you are not using the rug right away, just store it, add a solid moth repellent next to it, but lavender or naphthalene will also work well. It is important to store the precisely rolled carpet airtight. If you do find moth or worms among the fibres, please seek expert advice.
No matter how hard we try to take care of our carpets, feel the incidence of using one of the stains. One of the most important unnecessary, so one act, do not wait until a stain dries (of course, there are exceptions to this: if there is wax dripping on the carpet, we have to wait for a drying). If liquid spills on the carpet, soak it up as much as possible. Do not rub, but rather work with gentle movements. Use a clean cotton cloth that is clear and thoroughly wrung out with lukewarm water, and be sure to grow strong chemicals. If for any reason: an oriental rug made of wool fibre device that has a natural fat content. Strong chemicals dissolve this and a carpet loses its softness and elasticity. You can add a little vinegar or gentle baby shampoo to the lukewarm water if needed. Clean by moving from the edge of a stain inward to prevent spread. After removing the stain, he brushed over a mat in the direction of the thread.
