Cleaning and Maintaining Fine Carpets
Simple cleaning and maintenance in addition of timely repairs of damaged areas extends the life of the carpets for generations of use and enjoyment. It is also environmentally smart since extending the life of your carpets reduces the carbon footprint. We recommend that the carpets be professionally hand washed which rejuvenates the wool and brings out the brilliant colors and extends the life of the rug which is both financially and environmentally smart.
If you have a home with a moderate level of traffic, area rugs and carpets should be cleaned at least once every two to three years to preserve the condition of the wool. If you have pets, your rugs should be cleaned once a year.
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.
