It is said that a hand-knotted rug is a thing of beauty, and rightfully so. Many antique Oriental, Persian, Turkish, and other hand-knotted rugs were made using special techniques, materials, and dyes that simply no longer exist today. Many of these rugs were made from methods passed down from generations of weavers known for their craftsmanship and unique wool dying techniques. Because hand-knotted area rugs are so special, the rug cleaning service that you select must be special too.
When selecting a rug cleaning company, always check to see that those who will be doing the work have the proper skills, knowledge, certification, and training to perform the job correctly. It only takes one mistake to ruin your cherished rug! This is why it is always essential to only trust your rug to those professionals who offer genuine hand-washing and can handle your cleaning or repair correctly and with care.
Those companies who use batch washing machines or carpet cleaning companies who are not familiar with proper rug cleaning or antique rug restoration procedures may rely on harsh chemicals that can damage the fibers and colors of the rug or use the same cleaning solution for all rug types. At Oriental Rug Salon, we only use products that are certified WoolSafe and designed to clean and protect even the most sensitive area rug fiber and colors.
Protecting Your Cherished Wool or Silk Rug
One of the most effective ways to prolong the life of your cherished area rug is to have it professionally cleaned regularly by a WoolSafe Approved Service Provider who washes area rugs by hand.
Even those rugs that are in light-traffic areas can accumulate dust, mold, mildew, and insect debris. A regular cleaning, performed by Oriental Rug Salon’s experts will keep your textile in its best condition. And that leads to a longer life.
