Helpful Hints

Moth-proof your rugs

  • Certain moths digest protein and trace moisture found in wool.
  • They prefer dim or dark areas and eat a rug from underneath.
  • Moths love dirty and grimy fabric.
  • Moth-proofing is NOT an insecticide. It only renders the wool inedible. It is odorless and totally safe for use around children and pets.
  • Protection lasts until the rug is wet-washed and rinsed.

Do not vacuum fringe

  • Vacuuming fringe will wear out fibers and can lead to thinning and tearing.
  • Vacuum only up to the edge of the rug.
  • Straighten fringe with fingers or gently brush them out.

 Rug pads prevent sliding

  • To keep a rug in place, lay padding on the floor first.
  • Cut pads to size so they stay flat and invisible.
  • Pads not only keep your rug down, but also protect the floor beneath.
  • Do not use regular carpet pads on hardwood floors.

Do not wash your rug at home

  • Improperly washing a rug can lead to color bleeding and damage.
  • Improperly drying a rug can lead to mildew and rot.
  • Wall-to-wall carpet companies are not equipped to clean handmade rugs, and can often damage them.
  • Only have your rugs cleaned by professionals trained in oriental rug cleaning. 

Do not use spot cleaners on your rug

  • The moisture and chemicals can cause colors to bleed or bleach.
  • Scrubbing at a stain can cause it to set deeper into the fabric.
  • The best thing to do is blot the stain with a towel both on top of and underneath the rug. 
  • Call us as soon as possible. If you leave a message and it’s an emergency, we will call you back as soon as we can.

Don’t lose hope if your rug is damaged

  • Despite the damage, many rugs are fixable.
  • Pet stains, color bleeding, even holes and tears can all be repaired.
  • We will also work with your insurance company for maximum savings.
