  • Always use a professional cleaning service. Consumer self-cleaning methods are discouraged. Carpet can easily stain and yellow with improper cleaning chemicals.
  • For spills, blot the affected area with white paper towels or a clean white terry cloth towel. Moisture will weaken the fiber, and rubbing could then cause breaking or damage.
  • After blotting stains, groom by combing the face of the rug in the direction of the pile with a soft brush. The pile may look flatter and more reflective afterward.
  • Once the stained area is dry, re-brush the fiber to regain original texture.
