Protect your carpet--step by-step

With the exceptional quality of carpets, your carpet could "ugly" out long before it "wears" out. Make sure it doesn't with a comprehensive care program made up of four parts:

  • Preventative Maintenance

  • Vacuuming

  • Spot and Spill Removal

  • Overall Cleaning

 No. 1 one Rugs / Carpet manufacturer in India, No. one Rugs / carpet Exporter in India

 

1. Preventative Maintenance

1) Carpet Care: - Protect your investment before problems occur.

New flooring represents a substantial investment. The proper steps will make sure it stays attractive for years to come.

  • Place walk-off mats at all entrances: Walk-off mats should be used at the exterior of all entrances to absorb the soil and moisture. They can help trap the excessive dirt, sand, grit, and other substances such as oil, asphalt, or driveway sealer that would otherwise be tracked into the home. Mats should also be cleaned on a regular basis so they don't become sources of soil themselves.

  • Use a quality pad: You should always use a quality pad under your carpet, particularly on stairs. A good carpet pad not only gives better resilience and comfort underfoot, it can extend the life of your carpet. Because some carpets carry warranties with specific density and thickness requirements, be sure and review your warranty before purchasing your pad.

  • Occasionally move heavy furniture: Move heavy furniture occasionally to avoid excessive pile crushing. You should also use floor protectors designed for carpet under the legs of tables, chairs, and other furniture to help distribute the weight. Do not use chairs or appliances with rollers or casters without a chair pad designed specifically for carpet or damage can occur.

  • Protect carpet when moving furniture : When moving heavy wheeled furniture (pianos, buffets, etc.), prevent damage by placing a protective barrier of heavy cardboard or plywood between the wheels and the carpet.

  • Clean your area rugs: If you use area rugs on your carpet, be sure to clean them regularly. Clean and restore the pile of the carpet underneath as well. Also, be sure to check area rugs for colorfastness before placing them on carpet because the color in some rugs may bleed through. After cleaning your carpet, allow it to dry completely before replacing rugs.

  • Reduce periods of direct sunlight: Protect your carpet from prolonged periods of direct sunlight with blinds, shades, or awnings.

 

2. Vacuuming

2) Carpet Care:  - The most important step in caring for your carpet. Vacuum carpet thoroughly and frequently, particularly in high-traffic areas. Realize that walking on soiled carpet allows the soil particles to work their way below the surface of the pile where they are far more difficult to remove and can damage the carpet fibers. Frequent vacuuming removes these particles from the surface before problems occur.

For rooms with light traffic, vacuum the carpet traffic lanes twice weekly and the entire area once weekly. In areas with heavy traffic, vacuum the carpet traffic lanes daily and the entire area twice weekly. Up to three passes of the machine will suffice for light soiling, but five to seven passes are necessary for heavily soiled areas. Change the vacuuming direction occasionally to help stand the pile upright and reduce matting.

  • Check the quality of your vacuum: A good vacuum cleaner is vital to prolonging the beauty and life of your carpet. An inexpensive machine can remove surface dirt but will not effectively remove the hidden dirt and particles embedded in the pile.
    Ensure that your vacuum will conform to the highest industry standards.

  • Select the best vacuum for your type of carpet: Jaipur Carpets recommends using vacuums with a rotating brush or combination beater/brush bar that agitates the carpet pile and mechanically loosens soil for removal. Carpet with thick loop pile construction, particularly wool and wool-blend styles, may be sensitive to brushing or rubbing of the pile surface and may become fuzzy. For these products, Jaipur Carpets recommends a suction-only vacuum or a vacuum with an adjustable brush lifted away from the carpet so it does not agitate the pile. A vacuum with a beater/brush bar can be tested for excessive fizzing in an inconspicuous location before regular use.

  • Pay attention to vacuum bags: Replaceable paper vacuum bags do a better job of trapping small particles than cloth bags. With cloth bags, the particles pass back into the room. High efficiency vacuum bags, also called micro filtration bags, trap even smaller microscopic particles such as mold and mildew spores and dust mite byproducts, which are often found to be a source of allergies. All vacuum bags should be checked often and replaced when half full.

  • Check the belt and the setting: Make sure the belt is in good condition and that the brush or beater bar rotates when in contact with the carpet. To adjust the vacuum to the correct height setting for the carpet, raise the beater/brush bar to the highest setting and then lower it until it contacts the pile enough to slightly vibrate the carpet several inches away from the machine, but not low enough to cause significant slowing of the motor.

  • Change vacuuming directions: Change the vacuuming direction occasionally to help stand the pile upright and help reduce matting.

 

3. Spot and Spill Removal

3) Carpet Care: - Because, let's face it, they just can't always be avoided. Protect your carpet--step by-step: No carpet is stain proof, but since many are stain resistant, you have time to act. Look below to see if the specific spill you're trying to remove is listed. If so, you'll see instructions to help. If not, use the following general guidelines.

  1. Remove as much of food spills as possible by scraping the carpet gently with a spoon or a dull knife.

  2. Absorb wet spills as quickly as possible by blotting repeatedly with white paper or white cloth towels. Always blot; never rub or scrub abrasively, as a fuzzy area may result. When blotting, work from the outer edge in toward the center of the spot to avoid spreading the spill.

  3. Remove the stain using one of the cleaning items – Detergent Solution, Vinegar Solution, Ammonia Solution, Non-oily Nail Polish Remover, Chewing Gum Remover, Spot Remover.

  4. Rinse the cleaned carpet area with water to remove detergent residue that may become sticky and cause rapid re-soiling.

  5. Absorb any remaining moisture by placing several layers of white towels over the spot and weighing them down with a heavy object. This step is necessary even when the carpet doesn't seem particularly damp.

4. Overall Cleaning

4) Carpet Care: - Because vacuuming doesn't get everything.

  • Vacuuming alone won't protect your carpet:  

Even though vacuuming can remove most soil, it is also necessary to clean your carpet on a regular basis to remove the oily, sticky soil that vacuums don't remove. These soils result from cooking vapors, air pollution, and tracked-in dirt from outside. The particles of oily soil deposited on carpet fibers can cause gradual but significant dulling of colors. The color isn't lost, but is hidden under the film. If this type of soil is allowed to accumulate, it begins to attract and hold the dry soil.

If carpet is cleaned before it becomes too unsightly, the cleaning chore will be easier and more successful. Carpet in a typical household should be cleaned every 12 to 18 months, depending on the number of residents and amount of activity.

Choosing the proper cleaning system is important. Some systems may leave residues which accelerates re-soiling and defeats the whole purpose of cleaning. The recommendations below represent the best current knowledge and should help prolong the time between cleanings.

  • What cleaning system should you use? Jaipur Carpets recommends the hot water extraction system:

Research indicates that the hot water extraction system provides the best capability for cleaning. This system is commonly referred to as "steam cleaning," although no steam is actually generated. The process consists of spraying a solution of water and detergent into the carpet pile and recovering the water and soil with a powerful vacuum into a holding tank. This can be done from a truck-mounted unit outside the home with only the hose and wand brought inside or by a portable system brought into the home.

  • Professional or do-it-yourself?

It is to your advantage to use professional carpet cleaners because their experience enables them to do a better job than you can do yourself. Their equipment has more extraction power than the rental units available to individuals, and the carpet should dry more quickly. True professionals also understand the equipment, know the proper cleaning agents for the situation at hand, and recognize the differences in fibers and carpet construction.

The origin of a rug can dictate what sizes may be available. Most Oriental Rugs imported from India, Pakistan & China are woven using the American standard measurement of feet and inches.
Common sizes available include:

 


2' x 3'

6' x 9'

12' x 15'

2' 6'' x 4'

8' x 10'

12' x 18'

3' x 5'

9' x 12'

 

4' x 6'

10' x 14'

 

 

 

Sometimes rugs are what we call cut-size, which means that a 9' x 12' rug may actually measure 8' 6'' x 11' 6''. The smaller size rug should cost less because of a 7 square foot difference.

Other sizes available occasionally:

3' to 10' circles and squares
2' 6'' to 3' wide by 6' to 24' long runners
We like to stock wider runners, referred to as a Kellegi. Certain traditional designs are available in 4' to 7' wide by 10' to 18' long.

 

Two common rug sizes:

2m x 3m (6' 7'' x 9' 10'')      3m x 4m (9' 10'' x 13'1'')
Other common sizes:
3' 6'' x 5'   8' x 11'
5' x 6' 6''   11' x 15'
6' x 8'
2' to 7' x 5' to 30' runners

Now that you know what sizes are available, how should you decide what will work in your home or office?
Determining the "correct" size rugs for your space is not an exact science, but the guidelines below may help in your decision.

When considering a room size rug, you should first measure the entire space. We suggest leaving a border of floor showing around the entire room, making the room appear larger and enhancing the look of your room. The type of room and furniture placement will have a lot to do with what size rugs  you should consider. Making a rough drawing of your space, including dimensions and furniture placement, can be very helpful.

Dining room & Breakfast room

When selecting a room size rug for the dining room, you need to measure the length and width of your table, adding 1'6" per chair to your measurement. You will want the back legs of your chairs on the rug to avoid getting them caught on the edge of the rug when you are seated. Example: Your room is 12' x 16', your table is 6' long and 4' wide (with each table-leaf is 1' 6''), we would suggest an 8' x 11' to 9' x 12' size rug for your room. To accommodate your chairs and table with one leaf in place, you would need a minimum length of 7' 6" and width of 10' 6". For a 15' x 20' room with the same size table and chairs we would suggest 10' x 13' or 10' x14' rug size.

 

Living or Family room

First you must decide if you want a room size rug or smaller rug's to fill the space. If the furniture is placed several feet away from the walls, we suggest that the each piece of furniture be completely on or off the rug. If the furniture is placed around the walls, the rug can be placed just under the front of the piece, or away from it. Example: You have a sofa and love seat in an L-shape. One piece is up against the wall and the other is placed in the middle of the room. The rug can be placed just in front of both sofas or completely under the one in the middle of the room and just under the front of the one by the wall.

 

Bedroom

There are two schools of thought for placing rugs in your bedroom. You can either use one room size rug or several rugs around the bed's. When considering one room size rug it should be large enough for you to take a step or two when getting out of bed. If you have one bed centered in the room, you can place a rug at the foot of the bed and one on each side. If you have two beds in the room, you can add one more rug in between them.

 

Entrances, hallways and stairs

An Oriental rug placed by an entrance, hallway and stairwell, protects the floor while enhancing the decor. Consider purchasing a rug that can handle the high traffic that will occur in these areas. Entrance area rugs usually measure 2' to 5' x 4' to 7'. If there is a hallway off the entrance you may consider a runner. If you have a large vestibule, consider a rug based on its size. When measuring for hallways the rug should continue past any side doors. When considering a runner on the steps, measure the step and riser, counting how many of each and calculating the rug size needed. Add an additional 12" to 18" to the length of your calculation so both borders of the rug can be tucked under. Runners can not be installed if you have any half steps or if your stairwell has any curves.

 

Below are some recommendations of rug sizes for a particular room size

Sizing Your Rug

Determining the proper size for a rug is just as important as finding the right color and pattern. To start, simply measure your room; then follow our room-by-room measuring guide to find the best fit. Keep in mind that we also offer custom-sizing for hard-to-fit areas.

Family Room: The general rule for sizing a rug is to allow 12 to 18 inches of flooring to “frame” the rug. For a small room, 12 inches may be more than enough space. One large rug works best in a large room because it does not visually divide the room. However, if the room has several furniture groupings, each can be organized with rugs compatible in size and color but not necessarily matching.

Dining Room: In a dining room, measure the length and width of the table. The rug needs to be large enough to allow chairs to be pushed back from the table without falling off the rug. This means that any of the chairs can be in a more conversational position before and after the meal without moving off the rug. Allow 30 inches on each side for side and armchairs.

Bedrooms: In bedrooms, one large rug is luxurious, but the bed will cover most of it. Smaller equal-sized rugs used around the bed are another option. The soft comfort of a rug is most appreciated when stepping in and out of bed.

Hallways: In hallways, the length is optional. Try to place a runner rug so it does not end in the middle of a doorway. In a very long hall, several small runners can work. They do not have to match but the colors should coordinate.

Carefully measure your room and also the area you would want your rug to cover. Large rugs are impressive while smaller rugs can be more versatile. Take a digital picture of your room and its contents to bring along. Since we carry three types of rugs, Persian, Bokhara and Tribal, visit our Types and Designs link to determine which type would create the look you desire for your room. Bring along any accessories you wish your rug to complement and perhaps a picture of other rugs which will lie near your new rug.

Look at rugs you are drawn to, but keep in mind that it is often the rug you least expect that looks best in your home. Be open to taking rugs home on approval. Seeing a rug on a platform in a showroom or even on the floor does not compare to seeing it in your own home, with your individual furniture and lighting. Don't be overly concerned about the rug "matching" other items in the room. A rug that "speaks to you" will provide more pleasure than one that goes well with its surroundings. Rugs contain many colors which will be drawn out by the accessories in your room.

Dining Room

To choose a proper size rug for a dining room, count the chairs that accompany your table. For the chairs to remain on the carpet while guests are seated, you would need a 6'X9' rug for 4 chairs, a 8'X10' rug for 6 chairs and a 9'X12' rug for 8+ chairs. If the room is exceedingly large you may need a rug that is larger than your table warrants. Consider whether a Persian, Bokhara or Tribal rug would help create the look you wish for your dining room. Viewing our Types and Designs link would help you determine the different looks of each style. Some dining rooms will have the table located to the one side with a smaller rug beneath and a complementary runner or small rug beside. Bring along any samples of draperies or dinnerware that you would like to complement. 

Living Room

When you look for a rug for your living room, decide if you want the rug to carpet the entire room except for 1 1/2' on each side or whether the rug will be the focus in a conversational area with other rugs as accents. Also decide if you want to place your furniture on top of the carpet or around it. Placing the furniture off the carpet will allow the entire design of the rug to be enjoyed. Measure the area you wish to carpet. View our Types and Designs link for the type of rug (Persian, Bokhara or Tribal) that would create the look you desire for your living room. Bring along any items you wish to complement including, paint and fabric samples, pillows etc.

 

Kitchen

Many people assume that oriental rugs and kitchens don't mix.  This is absolutely not the case!  Our rugs make beautiful additions to any space and because of their exceptional durability and stain-resistance, they are especially suited to the hussle and bustle of kitchen use.  Place a rug in front of the kitchen sink, beneath a breakfast table, or in a walkway...the possibilities are endless.

Bedroom

Oriental rugs beautifully accent a bedroom in many locations. Rugs or runners can be placed on either side of a bed, at the bottom of a bed or in front of a dresser. Although one large rug may be used, placing it under the bed does not allow the rug's design to be seen. Measure carefully the area you wish to carpet.

Sample bed sizes
Twin: 38" x 75"
Full: 53"x75"
Queen: 60"x80"
King: 76"x80"

Hallway

When carpeting a hallway, careful measurements must be taken of the length and width of the hallway. You must decide what width runner will look best in your hallway. The standard width is 2 1/2' but wider and more narrow runners are also available. You need to decide where you want your runner to begin and end. We carry runners between 6' and 15'. Fringes are not included in the stated length of a runner. Consider how much light is available in your hallway when choosing a runner. If the hallway is very long or involves an "L" shape, two complementary runners may be used.

Stairs

Careful measurements need to be taken of your stairway. Measure first the rise and depth of your stairs. This measurement times the number of steps you have including any landings should give you an idea of the length of runner you will need.
