When you buy one of our carpets you have invested in a durable product, but regular cleaning is still highly recommended.
- Regular vacuuming of the carpets prevents dust particles from sticking.
- Although beating the carpets is a little more time-consuming than vacuuming, it is worth it against more stubborn dirt.
- Due to the natural coloring of vintage carpets, sunlight can cause the colors to fade slightly, which gives the carpet character and life. If you do not want this, protect it from direct sunlight.
- If something should go wrong and a visible stain is visible, as a first aid, dab the stain carefully with an absorbent cloth and some warm water until it is no longer visible on the carpet.
