Here are some great tips for keeping your mat in tip-top shape.
Dealing with dirt and dust
Your hand-knotted rug needs to be cleaned with care. Sand, grit, or dust can build up in the base of your pile. Abrasions can cause damage and even loss to the wool fibers. To remove dirt and dust from the mats, go outside and sweep it with a brush. You can also flip the mats by using the broom. Your mats should be vacuumed once per week, or as frequently as necessary in the direction indicated by the pile. If the pile feels clean and smooth, it is in the correct direction. Vacuum both the back and front sides of the mats. Be sure to protect the yarns during vacuuming. While vacuuming, care should be taken to not rub the loop mats. Vacuum cleaners with hard bristle roller bars or beaters are not recommended as they could cause damage to the mats’ pile. Use a pair of scissors to remove any loose threads from the mats. Do not forget to clean the fringes. They may become torn if they are used repeatedly. Make sure you vacuum the mats regularly in high-traffic areas like your home or office.
Accidents do happen, and no matter how careful one is, they are inevitable. Food and drink spillages happen all the time and need to be dealt with immediately. Read the mats labels carefully for washing symbols and warnings before you clean up any spillages. Once you are certain about the instructions, depending on the type and material of your mats, you will be able to spot clean the area or dry clean it. Blot liquid spillages using a blotting newspaper, paper towel, or a clean piece of cloth. If you have solid spillages, use an old spoon to scoop them up. Do not rub the mats. Stains can get into the fibers if you rub them. You should work the stain in the center, not the outer edges. Blot the spillage and clean it up until it dries. Be sure to test detergents and cleaning solutions on a small patch of mats first. We recommend seeking professional assistance if the mats’ color is transferred onto a white cloth. While there are many ways you can remove the stain using the internet, please remember to do so at your risk. It is better to call professional mats cleaner immediately if you prefer to be safe.
Avoiding Heavy Weights
The mats may be damaged by heavy furniture. Avoid flattening or crushing mats by using protectors if the legs or base of your furniture are made of sharp metal. Avoid putting flower pots in your mats. You don’t need them on your mats. Instead, use flower pot trays to collect any excess water. The mats may become permanently dampened if the container leaks. Two to three weeks later, the foundation of the mats could become so weak that pieces can be ripped from the affected areas by hand. Your mats will then be damaged. It is best to keep them off mats.
Handling uneven wear
The mats can get discolored from excessive traffic. The mats should be rotated 180 degrees every few months to avoid this. This ensures that foot traffic is distributed evenly across the mats’ entire surface. Additionally, mats that are exposed to direct sun will have higher chances of discoloration. Rotate your mats to avoid uneven wear.
Handling wrinkles and lines
To prevent creases and wrinkles from your mats, lay a large, clean towel on the area to be ironed. If the mats pile has not returned to its original shape you can repeat the process but keep in mind that the iron cannot come into direct contact with the mats.
Curling can occur due to many factors such as shipping brand new mats, rolling the mats while storage, or furniture weight. When mats are not able to lay flat when unpacked or rolled, it is important to allow the mats’ backing or foundation time to relax. The relaxing process will be speeded up by reverse rolling the mats.
