Whatever type of stain you have on your rug, it is important to fix the damage as soon as possible. Here are some tips on how to handle different types of damage.
For example, food, scraps, sauces, vomit or stool. Remove as much as possible with a spoon or similar. In case of liquids, such as wine, coffee, milk, urine, etc. try to soak up as much as possible with a towel, paper, etc. from both below and above side of the rug.
NOTE! Do not rub!
Then you mix a water solution:
1 liter of lukewarm water with 1 tablespoon of mild detergent such as shampoo, laundry soap or gall soap.
Moisten a white cloth with washing solution and dab it on the affected area. Do not rub! If you see the slightest hint that the carpet color has dropped or rubbed off, or if it is made of silk, you should take a dry cloth and dab dry and contact us on +46-8-7150091 for further instructions. Otherwise, continue dabbing the affected area with washing solution. Be careful not to spread the flak, make use of a cloth, sponge, swab or the like. If the stain for example is 1 cm in diameter dab only there. Then exit by dabbing dry. NOTE! Never rub!
Then mix one rinse solution as follows:
1 liter of cold water
1 teaspoon of hair conditioner or softener for washing machine
1 teaspoon of food acetic acid (may be omitted if it is not available)
Saturate a cloth, sponge, swab or similar with fabric softener solution and dab alternating with dry cloths, such as a sheet or towel. Repeat 3-5 times. NOTE! Do not rub! Then finnish by dabbing with a dry cloth or paper towel. It is important to continue drying until the sheet or paper towels stop absorbing.
Carefully use your hairdryer, which will be set at the lowest heat. Brush at the same time with a fine brush the area in the direction of the pile. Finish by adding something between the carpet and the floor so air can circulate under the carpet the first day and also to protect sensitive flooring.
NOTE! Remember that the carpet may feel dry on top but still be moist on the bottom!
