Hand made oriental rugs as a whole do not require a lot of
maintenance, they are made to last for several decades and in the case
of carpets woven by master weavers their oriental carpets can last
for centuries. Walking on hand knotted area rugs will not damage them,
they are hand knotted for use in high traffic areas. If the natural
fibres in your handmade rug are damaged by sunlight or permanent stains
it is best to consult with our professional specialised cleaning service
as cleaning and restoring handmade rugs is a delicate process.

Vacuumming Oriental Hand Knotted Wool Rugs:
Vacuuming wool hand made rugs with a quality vacuum will go a long way towards prolonging the appearance and life of your rug, we recommend vacuuming at least twice a week to remove
the excess material that accumulates on the rug surface. Peeling of the rug is normal and
in no way does it shorten the life of your rug, this is merely the result of loose fibres created during the weaving process.
Steam Cleaning Oriental Wool Carpets:
Steam cleaning is most effective when performed by a professional with all the appropriate equipment. Powder cleaners and deodorisers can cause
excessive peeling, if the area is heavily soiled, we recommend a different procedure or using a professional services.
Rug Stain Removal Methods:
When a rug gets stained it must be treated immediately, when possible, scoop up solids and liquids as soon as
any spill occurs. Absorb as much liquid as possible with a white cloth or paper towel without scrubbing in order to prevent matting or fizzing. Dry foam and
an absorbent pad is the most recommended method for treating stains in rugs, alternatively you can use a little bit of water to create a light detergent foam to scrub gently in the pile, then vacuum out when dry.
Rug Pads or Anti Slip Pads:
Rug pads can extend the life of your area rug by providing a smooth
supportive base in addition it also helps prevent slipping and sliding
on hard surfaces by maintaining the placement of your rug.
