Oriental and fine area rugs are investments that require special care not only due to their price but by their very construction. A study conducted by the Eureka Company found that woven rugs, especially hand knotted rugs are designed to hide dry soil. Did you know that a 9 x 12 rug can hide 87 pounds of dirt?
Given your investment and the unique qualities of oriental and fine rugs, experience definitely matters in caring for these items. Industry experts recommend that oriental rugs and loose woven rugs be cleaned in-plant. To best protect your investment, your oriental rug and loose woven rugs should not be cleaned in your home.
