This is an area that our customers regularly ask us about. Once you have decided on your purchase, you wait eagerly for its arrival. When the moment happens, you are then eager to place it and start enjoying this stunning new addition to your home. However, just a little patience and preparation will allow you to gain maximum enjoyment for as long a period of time as possible...
When your cowhide rug arrivesAs you welcome your cowhide rug into your home, you will appreciate that it has been either rolled or folded for efficient and safe transportation. Therefore, the first step is to roll it back against any creases. The next step is to lay it as flat as possible for a few days. If you can add weight, this helps. This will give your stunning cowhide rug a little while to settle into its new environment.
If your rug still shows signs of a few creases, no worries. You can simply iron the reverse of your rug. But be sure to use a press cloth and only a low heat; the creases will be eased out.
Looking after your Art Hide productIt's great news that our products are easy to both clean and maintain. It's okay to gently vacuum your rug, but we recommend you do this no more than a couple of times a month, and avoid using a brush setting. Another good move is to brush it carefully, by hand, and in the direction of the hair growth. This helps to distribute the natural oils held within the product.
To ensure that your rug remains at its glorious best for a long period of time, it's best not to place it in high foot traffic areas. Taking a moment to rotate it every few months is another useful move. Your Art Hide rug can also be wiped with a light cleaning product; liquid spills can usually be removed with a damp sponge.
