If you are living, or thinking about moving in to Tatami house,
you might be wondering how you should treat it.
Actually, it is quit easy.
Don’t miss a chance to enjoy Tatami if you are here in Japan 🙂
Here are the 4 important points when you have tatami mat in your house.
1. Don’t put a carpet on it, to keep it dry.
2. When you use a vacuum, do it softly and follow the direction of tatami.
3. When you want to wipe it for cleaning, use a dry towel. Only a bit wet towel is fine but not too much.
4. On a sunny day, keep the windows open to make the room dry.
Overall, the most important point is to keep it dry, because the humidity is what a mold and a tick loves.
See? Now you know how easy it is to treat tatami, and the rest you should
do is just to enjoy it 🙂
