Care & Maintenance
SHEDDING & LOSE FIBRES
Please note all rugs may shed and have loose fibres. Shedding will take place mostly in the first 1-6 months of the rugs lifetime, then will slow over time. High traffic areas may always have a small amount of shedding. Simply vacuum any shedding fibres. For loose threads or ends - do not pull, simply clip them carefully with fabric scissors.
CARE & MAINTENANCE
The positioning of your rug will have an effect on the longevity and appearance of your rug over time. Avoid direct and continuous exposure to sunlight. Vacuum regularly to prevent dust and crumbs from settling into the pile. Rotate rug occasionally to equalize wear.
Treat any liquid spills immediately. Place a clean cloth or unprinted paper towel directly on the liquid to absorb the spill. Following this use a clean cloth, dampened with water and dab the affected area, do not follow a circular motion, simply dab and blot. Absorb any excess moisture after cleaning with a clean dry cloth or towel. For dirt marks, such as soil, simply allow the soil to dry and vacuum. If spills or marks remain, contact a professional rug cleaning specialist.
After time your rug will require professional cleaning. Any persistent or large stains will also require professional cleaning. Do NOT dry clean or steam clean rugs. Each Jardan rug is unique, and made of different fibres, we recommend contacting a professional rug cleaner who specialises in hand made rugs or contact Jardan for a recommended specialist cleaning contact.
