Orion

a prominent constellation visible throughout the world, named after Orion, a gigantic, supernaturally strong hunter in Greek mythology.
The Māori called the three stars forming Orion's belt "Tautoru" and they knew that the end of the year had come when the three stars were lined up vertically on the horizon.

Hunt your way to invincible comfort with Orion

Sirius

the most brilliant star in the night sky, also known as “the dog star” because it dominates the “Greater Dog” constellation. This configuration of 8 stars represents the larger of Orion’s two hunting dogs that accompany him as he hunts Lepus, the rabbit. At the end of the Māori year, Sirius or ”Takurua”, is located directly above Orion’s belt.

Sirius invincible comfort at zenith level.

Perseus

One of the oldest known constellations in the night sky, first catalogued by the Greek astronomer Ptolemy in the 2nd century. It shows the demigod (half god) Perseus with the head of the Gorgon Medusa. Algol, the best known star of the constellation representing the eye of Medusa, may have been named “Matohi” by the Māori people.

Perseus the personification of invincible comfort.

Pegasus

The constellation depicting the winged white horse that sprang from the neck of Medusa when Perseus beheaded her. The Polynesian forefathers of the Māori called the Great Square of Pegasus “Ka Lupe O Kawelo”, the kite of the great chief Kawelo. This cluster of four stars was one of the important beacons that guided the ancestors of the Māori safely across the Pacific Ocean to their new homeland.

Pegasus your wings to invincible comfort.

The Collection

Stars are eternal, no man can make them cease to shine. Primitive tribes, like the ancestors of the Maori, used stars as light, map and compass, to guide the way

AW’s new Invictus® collections are all named after invincible stars and awe-inspiring constellations

Maintenance and cleaning tips

 

Carpets, by their very nature, come in for a lot of heavy use, so it’s important to follow a few basic suggestions for keeping them in tip top order. Even though your Invictus carpet is designed to withstand many spillages, it will still get dirty. So, just follow this simple advice.

1. Vacuum regularly

The more you vacuum your carpet, the longer it’ll stay looking good. Try and do it often, to prevent build up of soil particles in the pile. Pay particular attention to areas of heavy footfall such as doorways and at the foot of chairs or cupboards.

2. Periodical cleaning

It’s inevitable that dust and oil particles in the air will leave a dulling film on your carpet over time, and the best way to overcome this is by employing a professional cleaning company that will use cleaning solutions recommended for Invictus carpets. Remember that this Warranty is only valid if this is done at least once in every two year period from the date of purchase. Use the maintenance record to keep a note of this in case you need to make a claim.

 

 

CLEANING PROCEDURES

 

Before trying to remove dirty marks from your carpet it’s important to know whether they are stains or ‘soiling’.

Staining

Is the discolouration of carpet fibres caused when pigment from a substance like coffee or red wine leaves residue in the carpet. Before tackling a stain, check what has caused it and follow the correct removal procedure from the information in this leaflet. Remember, these stain removal procedures are for carpets made from polypropylene IVINCI SDO Stainaway yarn.

Soiling

Is caused by dirt, dust, cigarette ash, and other particles that settle on a carpet during normal use. If soiling isn’t removed regularly, the particles can cause friction at the base of the carpet and weaken the fibres, causing loss of pile height and density and a dull appearance. Regular maintenance is the best way to keep your carpet free of soiling and looking great.

General advice

Other than vacuuming, your carpet needs to be wet cleaned if heavy soiling has occurred, or treated promptly in cases of spills or stains. Outlined opposite are emergency techniques for treating the most common kinds of staining.

 

WATER-BASED STAINS

Things like beer, berries, coffee, cola, excrement, fruit juice, white glue, ice cream, washable ink, ketchup, sauce, soft drinks, tea and wine. Soak up immediately using an absorbent cloth or kitchen roll. If the stain persists use a solution of one teaspoon of neutral detergent such as washing-up liquid to half a pint of warm water. Dry with a hair dryer, continually moving to prevent watermarking.

 

GREASY STAINS

Things like baked beans, blood, butter, chocolate, cooking oil, crayons, gravy, grease, ketchup, mascara, mayonnaise, milk, mustard and pet food. Use methylated spirits, applying with cotton wool to the edges of the stain and working inwards. Don’t worry if colours darken during this treatment, just blot with kitchen roll to avoid excessive moisture. Then use a soap solution on cotton wool, dampen the area, blot with kitchen roll and dry with a hair dryer as above.

 

DRIED-IN STAINS

Any of the water-based foods or drinks as above. Use non-biological washing powder or mix two litres of tepid water with half a teaspoon of carpet shampoo. Re-wet the stain using the soap solution applied with cotton wool and blot with kitchen roll as above.

 

SPECIFIC STAINS

Chewing gum trodden into the carpet.

Scrape away excess then freeze with ice cubes. Shatter with blunt object like the back of a spoon and quickly vacuum chips away.

Hobby glue and nail polish.

Apply nail polish remover sparingly with a cotton towel, pick up softened material and push kitchen roll towards centre of spot to avoid it spreading. Repeat this procedure until the stain is removed.

Candle wax.

Scrape off as much wax as you can. Cover with a white cotton towel and apply a warm (not hot) iron. Repeat this procedure with a clean towel each time until the stain is removed.

Chalk and mud.

Vacuum as much as possible. Loosen remaining material by tapping with a small brush, but don’t scrub. Vacuum again then use technique for water-based stains as above.

Lipstick.

Scrape off excess lipstick and lightly rub the area with a slice of fresh white bread. Complete the removal as per the greasy stains technique above.

 

OTHER STAINS

Things like brown sauce, shoe polish, sherry, toothpaste, urine and vomit.

Apply diluted detergent with a damp towel and leave for five minutes. Blot, then rinse with water, followed by a pad of weighted kitchen roll.

 

As a last resort...

If you follow the advice in this leaflet for removing food and beverage stains from your Invictus carpet, it’s unlikely that you’ll need our specialist advice. But if you do need our assistance, this is the low cost Helpline number, available during normal business hours: 08444 990450.

Our experienced advisor will ask you a few questions and then offer further suggestions for removing your stain. Remove the stain using the recommended method. If the stain is unable to be removed you could ask for one of our specialists to visit you. If however, the stain is successfully removed by our representative, then you will be liable for the cost of this service. If we are unable to remove the stain in situ, Associated Weavers will, at our own expense through an approved retailer, provide a replacement carpet of similar quality or value (for the stained carpet only).
