Oriental Rugs Care
Simple cleaning and maintenance in addition of timely repairs of damaged areas extends the life of the carpets. We recommend that the carpets be professionally hand washed which rejuvenates the wool and extends the life of the rug.
If you have a home with a moderate level of traffic, area rugs and carpets should be cleaned at least once every two years. If you have pets, your rugs should be cleaned at least once a year.
To remove pet stains and odors (dog and cat urine, vomit, smoke), we use a special enzyme bath that does an excellent job of removing the odors and stains. The process starts with the removal of dust and dirt embedded in the carpet. Then the carpet is soaked in an enzyme bath for several hours. The carpets then go through a final wash and rinse. The final step in cleaning the carpet is drying it in a temperature and humidity controlled special drying room for a 12-24-hour period.
If you have pets such as a dog or a cat, because of the additional dirt brought in by these pets from outside, the carpets become dirty much faster. In this case, the carpets should be cleaned at least once a year to preserve them and to provide for a cleaner living environment for your family. 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.
