dried and reinstalled. It is 100% UV stabilized Olefin™
Polypropylene fiber with rubber backing. See Figure
All cleaning methods must be followed by a thorough rinse
with clean warm water.
Certain household cleaners, powdered abrasives, steel wool
and industrial cleaners can cause damage and discoloration
and are not recommended. Dry cleaning fluids and lacquer
solvents should not be used as they will remove the printed
pattern and gloss. Waxes should be used with caution as
many contain dyes or solvents that can permanently damage
the protective coating.
Prior to using any mild laundry soaps or carpet
shampoo, always conduct a color-fast test on
a small inconspicuous portion of carpet before
applying to entire carpet.
*Suntan lotion, tree pollen, wet leaves and some other prod-
ucts can contain dyes that stain permanently. Care should
be exercised and boat covers should be utilized.
DO NOT dry carpeting in an automatic dryer.
