Cleaning and Maintaining Fine Rugs

We recommend that the carpets be professionally hand washed which rejuvenates the wool and extends the life of the rug.  Simple annual cleaning and maintenance in addition to timely repairs of damaged areas extends the life of the rug.

Rising and Spinning the Rug to Remove the Water

Spinning and Drying the Rug

Dirt that stays in the carpet causes the wool to become stiff. Over time this negatively impacts the natural oil that is in the wool. Gentle suction vacuuming of the carpets once a month will not damage the carpet and helps to get the dust and dirt out of the rug.
