Cleaning and Repair
Your Oriental rugs are valuable investments in addition to décor choices. Accordingly, they must be stored, cleaned and maintained carefully in order to protect and increase their value. This is why you would prefer a rug cleaning specialist who will take care of your rug, rather than a “carpet cleaner”.
Whether woven by hand or made by machine, all Oriental rugs are generally made from wool, cotton, or silk and are knotted with pile that has been colored with vegetable or synthetic dye. Intricately designed, these expertly crafted pieces are unique in every way, and to ensure their longevity, we recommend you take your rugs for a thorough and proper cleaning at least once every two years. However given the individual natural of each piece, cleaning an Oriental rug can often be a challenging task.
