Carpets & Rugs

DISCOVER

Almora

Almora’s bold linear design is defined by a palette of striking duotone colours. Handwoven in botanic TENCEL™ for a beautiful shine that reflects the light, giving movement and depth to the pile.

TENCEL™ fibres derive from sustainably grown trees, they are biodegradable and naturally manage indoor moisture for a healthier living environment. See Almora’s sister range Arani for the same characterful texture in soft, neutral colours; or we can colour match to any Pantone, paint, or pom.

Suitable for

Bedroom, living room, landing, home stairs, and home office with castor mat. A good choice for underfloor heating.

Usage

Classification EN 1307: Class 22 general domestic.

Not recommended for

Heavy traffic, wet areas or entrances.

ORDER & FIT

Ordering
We recommend viewing a physical sample before ordering, as most screens do not show true colours.
While our quality control systems are designed to keep colour variation within normal industry tolerances, the tones of all natural fibres may vary slightly between batches and samples may change a little over time. For carpet orders where an exact colour match is required, please request a stock cutting. If joining carpets, please ensure at the time of order that you request cuts from the same batch.

Size tolerance
For carpets please always order 3% more than is required both on length and width.
For handwoven rugs sizes may vary by up to +/-2.5%.
For inset locations order oversized broadloom and cut in on site.

Fitting carpets
Our high quality carpets tend to be thick, dense and therefore heavy, so please ensure plenty of labour to move and fit them.
Jacaranda’s carpets should always be installed by professionals. They may be stretched onto grippers over good quality, solid underlay. They may also be stuck directly to the floor or fitted over underlay using the double stick method.

Installing rugs
A quality underlay beneath your rug will eradicate slippage and can reduce wear. Jacaranda offers non-slip rug underlay suitable for rugs laid over carpets or hard floors.

AFTERCARE

General maintenance
Please vacuum your newly fitted carpet or rug frequently, some initial fibre loss or ‘shedding’ is normal but will not affect the appearance or performance, and soon stops with frequent vacuuming.
Please continue to vacuum regularly throughout the life of your floorcovering. Vacuum carpets or rugs with the beater bar turned off.

To lengthen life:

  • Place barrier mats by doors but clean them often
  • Use castor mats under all castor chairs
  • Add furniture cups under the legs of furniture
  • Lay non-slip underlay under all rugs and rotate rugs regularly to spread wear
  • Buy a Jacaranda Emergency Spot Cleaning Kit with your carpet or rug, to have ready for accidents. To purchase our spot cleaning kit please email [email protected]

 

Spills and stains
Like most fabrics, carpets & rugs will stain from spills of everyday liquids like coffee or wine. The key is to act quickly.

Do

  • Pick up any solids using a spoon or blunt knife
  • Blot up liquid gently with plain, white, absorbent paper such as kitchen towel. Continue, changing paper regularly, until it comes back dry
  • Use Jacaranda’s emergency spot cleaning kit
  • Call a professional carpet cleaner if the stain remains

 

Do NOT

  • Rub or scrub which can ‘burst’ the pile surface causing permanent damage
  • Add water
  • Use home steam cleaners
  • Use home cleaning chemicals which may set the stain, damage the pile, or leave a sticky residue prone to re-soiling

 

Professional cleaning
When your carpet or rug needs stain removal or a deep clean, you shouldcontact a carpet cleaning specialist. For your guidance, professional cleaners should recommend a dry compound cleaning method, the floorcovering will be sprinkled with cleaning granules and allowed to dry before being vacuumed up. Professional cold water extraction cleaning is possible on stubborn stains however specialist knowledge is essential, and they should clean the entire carpet or rug. Wet extraction uses a specialist machine to spray the carpet with water and cleaning products whilst simultaneously vacuuming to remove stains and dislodge any stubborn debris.
Cleaning often takes place on site however they may recommend taking rugs off site to be cleaned. Please note we would not recommend rug baths where the rug is fully submerged in water.
Always ask your professional to re-apply moth protection after your floorcovering has been wet cleaned.

Anti-stain treatments
These won’t make carpets or rugs invincible, prompt removal of spills is still key, but anti-stain treatments should buy time and make stains easier for professionals to remove. Stain treatments should always be applied by professionals with specialist knowledge of TENCEL™. Stain protection should be reapplied after every deep clean.
