CARE INSTRUCTIONS - INDOOR RUGS

- We advise you to vacuum the rug once or twice a week with a normal (upright or cylinder) vacuum
cleaner but without the brush or beater bar engaged. Rugs with a high pile need to be vacuumed
even more often.
- Do not use a vacuumer with a rotating brush, this will damage the yarn.
- Rugs made from natural materials are subject to some pilling during the first few months.
This is a common characteristic of natural cut fibers and will disappear after 3 or 4 months of normal use.
- A dry environment can result in extra pilling of the yarn. A humidity between 50-70% will benefit
the lifecycle of your rug.
- In order to avoid ‘regular use marks’, we advise you to turn the rug every once in a while.
- Wet stains need to be removed immediately, before the yarn absorbs the fluid. Absorb the stain using a
strong absorbing paper (like kitchen paper). Do not, in any case, rub or put pressure on the rug when wet.
This can damage the fibers and the structure of the rug.
- Light stains can safely be treated with JAMES cleaning agents, which have been successfully tested on
our products. Please follow the instructions of the JAMES staindisc delivered with the James starter kit.
Treating stains within 24 hours increases the possibility of successful stain removal, nevertheless,
complete removal can never be guaranteed. The usage of a cleaning agent that is not tested on our
products cannot be guaranteed for safe cleaning.
- Please do not use highly acidic cleaning agents to remove stains from your rug. This will cause
discoloration of the yarn.
- In case of heavy staining or transferred dirt, we advise you to always have your rug drycleaned by
a specialist in rug cleaning. Please state clearly that this rug needs to be cleaned without using water.
- When in doubt, please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.

 

CARE INSTRUCTIONS - OUTDOOR RUGS

- We recommend regular cleaning (monthly) of the outdoor rug.
- Vacuum the rug with a normal (upright or cylinder) vacuum cleaner without the brush or beater bar
engaged. Avoid vacuuming over 1200W.
- After vacuuming, you can use cold water with a pH-neutral soap or a non-ionic detergent to remove
all dirt on both sides of the rug. Dry the rug in the sun afterwards.
- Stains need to be removed as soon as possible. Absorb the stain using a strong absorbing paper
(like kitchen paper) or a clean cloth.
- Remove stains using pH-neutral soap or dish soap and scrub it gently with warm water.
- Do not use highly acidic cleaning agents to remove stains from your rug. This can cause discoloration
of the yarn.
- In case of heavy staining we advise you to always have your rug cleaned by a specialist in rug cleaning.
- To avoid the rug getting moldy hang or lay down the rug in sunlight on a clean surface. For the rug to
be completely dry, alternate the sides.
- If you would like to storage your outdoor rug you need to clean it properly first. Make sure you
never fold your rug. You have to roll it up, wrap it in plastic and secure it with tape for example.
- When in doubt, please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
