A comprehensive guide on cleaning your Danetti rug

A comprehensive guide on cleaning your Danetti rug

In maintaining the longevity and aesthetic appeal of your rug, regular cleaning is paramount. Many of our rug designs are exclusive to Danetti so it’s important you follow the correct care and cleaning instructions from our specialist team. Follow the below expert tips to keep your rug looking better for longer: 

  1. Regular Vacuuming or Sweeping: Ensure a dust and debris free rug by vacuuming or sweeping on a regular basis. Opt for a suction-only vacuum cleaner to prevent any potential damage to the pile. We would advise against a beater-bar vacuum cleaner, as this can be abrasive and harm the delicate fibres. 
  2. Prevent Liquid Spills: Try to avoid spills at all costs, as liquid can penetrate the pile and lead to irreversible damage. In case of accidental spills, refrain from rubbing the affected area. Instead, gently blot with a clean cotton cloth to absorb the liquid without causing any further damage and so not spread the stain. If a stubborn stain persists, we recommend seeking professional advice. Attempting to remove challenging stains without proper guidance may worsen the situation.  
  3. No Machine Washing: Machine washing is a strict no for rugs. When machine washing a rug, the delicate fibres and patterns can be compromised and so will affect the appearance of your rug. Opt for manual cleaning methods to maintain the rug's structural integrity. 
  4. Manage Wool Shedding: Natural wool rugs may shed loose fibres, which is a normal occurrence. If you spot any loose threads, it is best to trim these with scissors to maintain a neat appearance and to not impact the design of the rug.  
  5. Anti-Slip Pad Usage: Enhance safety and protect your floor surface by using an anti-slip pad under your rug. This not only minimizes trip hazards but also ensures the rug stays securely in place. 
  6. Sunlight Protection: Shield your rug from direct sunlight to preserve its vibrant colours. Prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause fading and discoloration over time. Consider repositioning your rug periodically to distribute wear evenly. 
  7. Fire Safety Precautions: Keep your rug away from open flames and heat sources. Fire safety is crucial in ensuring the safety of your living space, and the material composition of a rug is flammable. 

By incorporating these simple cleaning tips into your routine, you can ensure that your Danetti rug remains a statement piece in your home, for years to come.
