A Lorena Canals rug is for life, to make it last longer, we recommend that you follow these wash and care tips:
WASHING MACHINE CAPACITY:
- Remove the rug from the washing machine and extended in a dry place or placed directly in the dryer at a low temperature. Under no circumstances should the wet carpet be left inside the washer after washing, as humidity can cause color transfer, damaging the original carpet dyes.
- SWEEPING the rug with a soft or natural fiber broom or brush
- SHAKE OUTSIDE occasionally to help get rid of dirt that may settle between the fibers, especially on the shaggy type. -If the rug has TASSELS OR FRINGES, use a hand-held vacuum or an upholstery attachment to clean the edges, as regular vacuuming can cause damage.
- Check your WASHER’S DRUM CAPACITY depending on the size of the rug. If your washer is too small, opt for professional cleaning.
- Make sure to CLEAN THE FILTERS of your washing machine and tumble dryer after use as, normally, wool rugs shed fibers.
- Made with natural fibers. This may cause slight shedding for a while, especially after the first washes. This process will decrease over time, as the rug gets vacuumed (always on low to moderate suction mode).
- Folding wrinkles will gradually smooth after laying the rug on the floor allowing for the fibers to naturally adapt. However, you can put the rug in the dryer to speed the process before first-time use.
- Suitable for underfloor heating.
- We recommend using the complimentary cotton tote bag to store the rug. Never use airtight plastic bags.
- We advise against washing rugs with an agitator and cannot be held responsible for any damages caused if washed using this method.
