General Wear

Oriental rug care is important, keep your rug clean and free of excess dirt and debris by either shaking or vacuuming regularly. Keeping dirt from getting ground into the pile will help keep the pile from being matted down. Rotating your area rugs also is a great habit to have. Every 12 months rotating 180 degrees will equalize the effects of wear on your rugs. If you are planning to store your rugs, we can properly store them for you and thoroughly undust/clean once they are ready to be laid back down.

Moth

Moths lay eggs in the pile of wool rugs. When these eggs become larvae, they feast on the wool, often times to the point creating holes. Although moth are attracted to wool, they will not survive in areas that a well trafficked or exposed to air and light. Keep your rugs vacuumed especially under furniture/dark shaded areas. If you have one rug showing moth damage, its wise to check other surrounding rugs. We can apply a moth repellent to the rug for proctection and also re-weave damaged areas.

  • Judge How Dirty a Rug is

    • Look at your fingers and palm: if your hand is dirty, the rug needs cleaning.
    • With the pile facing UP fold part of the rug back upon itself so that the pile opens along a line of knots.
    • Look down into the base of the pile at the foundation of the rug. If the warp and weft look dirty, there is dirt deep in the pile where a home vacuum cleaner cannot reach it. The rug needs cleaning.
