It is recommended that the carpets be professionally hand washed which rejuvenates the wool and brings out the brilliant colors. 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. 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.

We also recommend the use of padding for carpets. Padding provides support and protects the carpet from stress and extends the life of the carpet. Barrington Fine Rug Gallery provides custom size padding for a perfect fit for your carpets.

Simple cleaning and maintenance repairs extend the life of the carpets for generations of use and enjoyment. Barrington Fine Rug Gallery offers consultation to our clients and a full range of cleaning, repair and restoration services to keep these works of art in great condition for years to come.
