When buying a new rug, be sure to choose a rug that will suit its room or floor space. Ask yourself, is the size right, and do the colours match. Will the design suit the room. There are so many different types of rug to choose from.Time and care should be taken before selection.
The lifespan of a rug depends on many factors ; the quality of the rug, its place in the home, and the number of residents in the house. All these things will have an influence on the durability and life of the rug.

A new rug will last longer and look better with regular vacuuming. Due to the high power many hoovers have we recommend using the nozzle at a small distance so as not to create tufts and pulls.
A good vacuum cleaner is required as well as carpet shampoo, dry cleaning fluid, and clean absorbent cloths or paper tissues to remove spills.
Regular cleaning will keep your rug looking new, vacuum clean regularly, to remove grit and soil from the rug. Always deal with spillages immediately so discolouring does not occur.
When your rug requires a very good clean either do it yourself or seek the advice and help of a professional company. If you decide to do it yourself use approved products.
Don’t use detergents or liquids recommended for general household use, as these could lead to discolouring and damage the pile or backing of the rug.
Most rugs come with a maintenance guide and instructions on care.Turn the rug so it receives equal light and so equal fading over time.If you require any assistance or advice please get in touch and we will be happy to oblige.
Before starting any wet cleaning always test the carpet in an inconspicuous place for colourfastness. Also check, if possible, any maintenance leaflet that came with the carpet for the manufacturer’s recommendations regarding wet cleaning.
