Rug Maintenance Guide

The Care and Cleaning of Your Area Rug

Once you purchase your area rug here are some helpful hints:

The Wonders of Wool

The quality and resiliency of the fine wools we use in our Oriental and Persian Rugs makes them easier to maintain. Wool is more durable than other fibers, plus it cleans better and stays clean longer.


It is always best to trust the cleaning of your Persian and Oriental rug to a skilled professional. This is the best way to bring out the richness of color and softness of the wool. A professional cleaning is recommended every three to six years, depending on the amount of traffic to which the rug is subjected.


Rotate your Oriental rug once each year to insure even wear. For rugs in heavy traffic areas, a six-month rotation might be advisable.


As with any rug, Persian and Oriental rugs should be vacuumed on a regular basis to remove dirt and restore life to the fiber. However, be careful to avoid the fringe of the rug when vacuuming.


A quality pad can help protect your Persian and Oriental rug from dirt, wear and slippage. We can provide you with the correct padding to maintain your rug.


Should your rug become damaged, a professional restoration is recommended. A Persian and Oriental rug expert can improve the appearance of old and antique rugs, and repair new rugs as well. Always consult a professional before attempting any repairs.
