Even if it has been recently washed, moths can always surprise you, so put it in the coolest possible place, without humidity if possible. And if there was a window through which daylight would enter it would be even better. This is for added security if he has to stay indefinitely. In any case, even to keep them under control, every six months let them get some air.
Important, that’s why I insist: let them get some air.
At least every six months I recommend that you open it, check it and let it air for a few hours. I understand this is a nuisance, but I have seen too many moth-eaten rugs because they have been closed for so long.
The fluff on the newly purchased carpet.
Do not be scared, the carpet is new, and has just been shaved: it is natural that the first time it loses a bit of fluff. If it is of good quality it will disappear in a short time. If it isn’t, it will continue to shed fluff forever.
Rugs made with recycled wool waste give this result.
When you spot a flying thread, don’t tear it!
Show it to your trusted dealer, or better still contact us, we are always at your disposal.
Do not leave the carpet always in the same position otherwise it always wears out in the same areas. Change the direction of the carpet once or twice a year.
Dents in the fleece due to the furniture.
Place felt rods under the legs of tables or furniture. A sheet of plywood in the case of marble or stone. If you have armchairs, tables, etc. with very small feet try to increase the support base by placing a sturdy object under it that increases the surface (for example, a round or square steel or brass cap depending on the shape of the foot).
How to avoid certain dents of the fleece?
Do not always leave an armchair, a coffee table, etc. in the same place. It is enough to move it a few centimeters every now and then and the fleece will recover.
The fleece is dented, how to do it? Is simple.
Take the iron and a brush and iron it with the steam, combing it in its direction without resting the iron. Basically you just have to take advantage of the steam.
Some rugs can be ironed normally, but not all, so to avoid mistakes, I suggest you proceed step by step: first just steam then placing it just by combing it.
The carpet always slips and moves.
Obviously we need to put the anti-slip underneath. If the carpet does not slip, everything is fine, but if it does slip it is very dangerous and someone could get hurt.
On the market there are various kinds, usually in latex, rubber, etc. The rubber ones have a bad flaw: they leave a mark on the floor that never goes away.
We offer you an exclusive anti-slip , which you can also buy online and order to measure. It leaves no marks on the floors and protects the carpet from wear, which is no less important than avoiding bad falls.
Furniture on the carpet.
Before moving the carpet, make sure you have moved any furniture on it, otherwise it could tear.
Do not wax the part of the floor under the carpets too much. Excess wax can ruin the carpet and make it dirty faster.
