COLONIAL MILLS RUG CARE
You have made a wise investment with your cmi textured braided-texture area rug, and following these simple cleaning tips* will
help extend the life of your rug.
CLEANING
You can retain the beauty of these fine products by regular vacuuming using the hard surface attachment. Do not use the beater
bar on your rug. Remove spots with any dry cleaning fluid. Periodic professional dry cleaning is recommended. Accessory
products may be machine washed, cold water, laid flat to dry.
MAINTENANCE
If threads which hold the braids loosen or break simply sew together with a needle and strong thread. Trim, never pull loose ends.
What may appear to be an irregularity in color or construction is actually part of the homespun look. Reverse for twice the wear.
FLOOR PADDING
Floor padding is strongly recommended to prevent yarn color dye transfer and provide comfort, safety, and durability.
CHARACTERISTICS
Slight irregularities are inherent to all products. Minimal size, dye lot, and pattern repeat variations are to be expected from
handcrafting. Due to tight packing for shipment, product may not lay flat; starting from the center, work wrinkles out with hands or
pole.
* Cleaning and care may differ depending on product contents
