The Three Rules of Oriental Rug Care

There are three basic rules or care, all of equal importance, for your oriental rug. Following these basic rules will significantly improve the appearance and extend the life of your rug.

1. Professional Cleaning

Have a professional clean your rug every 3-5 years.   Make sure this professional is familiar with Oriental rugs, and choose a cleaner that your friends can recommend, or one that has positive reviews online.  We offer affordable and professional Oriental Rug cleaning and have over 35 years of experience.

2. Repair your rug at the first sign of damage

Oriental rug specialists have a saying, “A stitch in time saves nine”.   If something starts letting go on the sides, ends, or anywhere on your rug, its best to catch it and repair it right away.  We offer Oriental rug repair and rug moth-proofing, call us early and we can fix any issue.

3. Use a high-quality rug pad

A high quality rug pad will give your rug 20-30x the life as opposed to not having a pad, or good pad.  The pad should not be too thick and foamy, or too thin and meshy.  It should be a good dense pad, we sell Dura Hold rug pads and consider them the best in the industry.
