5. Simple tips onkeep clean

It does not always need a professional carpet cleaning, you can easily help yourself.


For example, vacuuming is important to remove gravel, sand and dirt particles that would otherwise be stuck in the carpet flor.

It is recommended to suck once a week and never more than twice. Excessive vacuuming causes only unnecessary wear and thus accelerates the aging process. When sucking, make sure that the suction power is not set to the highest level and the nozzle can be raised at each movement. Never push them back and forth on the carpet and avoid the suction of fringes, as this can lead to the carpet begins to break apart.

The suck should always be in the direction of the flor. First check with the hand as to whether the flor feels smooth, if you stroke with your hand over it. This is the right direction. On the other hand, when it feels rough and the pile rises while moving her hand over it, then this is against the pile - and the wrong direction.


6. Store carpets correctly

And if you do not have space or no desire to have on your carpet, they stow him, but right!

If you ever have to keep your carpet, remember that it consists of natural fibers and should always be breathable.

Never store your carpet on a damp place like a cellar or garage. Make sure the carpet is carefully rolled inside with the floral direction and fixed to avoid loosening the kneading.

Wrap it ideally in a cotton or linen shaft with moth balls and store it lying (for example under the bed), as he could otherwise lose his shape over time.

If you need to store the carpet longer, it is recommended to roll out, suck and replace the moth balls every three months. So you can use your favorite piece of any long time without losing glamor.


7. Fold and kink remove correctly

Not unmentioned should also be how to remove wrinkles and potential kinks. These arise, for example, by transport, storage or simply by loading the carpet in use.

Fold and kinks usually disappear from themselves when the carpet is laid flat a few days. Wool has a natural tendency to rise and come back in shape. In normal, daily use, the wrinkles and kinks should quickly decrease.

If these should be stubborn, simply put some heavy books or other secure objects on the folding or kink line to accelerate the process. If you do not notice any signs of improvement, you can also lay a cloth in cold water, rinse and then place it with the markings. Then take an iron and iron the cloth some times carefully, always towards the flor.
