When Does Your Rug Need More Than A Professional Cleaning?


Occasionally, we find that people are surprised that handmade rugs are as durable as they are.  They can withstand generations of use and enjoyment while needing just a minimal amount of care, including regular vacuuming, inspection, and periodic rotation and professional cleaning.  There are times, however, when an Oriental rug can benefit from more than just a regular professional cleaning (which we recommend as once every two years in most circumstances).  Among these times are when a rug is infested by moths, when it has been soiled by pet urine, when it has been damaged by a flood or sitting water, or when it has not had a professional cleaning for an extended period of time.  In these instances, we recommend a professional cleaning with an additional treatment, such as overnight soaking.  An extended soaking, for example, can help eliminate the foul odor that results from the wool being urinated upon.  Generally, a professional cleaning would not suffice to achieve this results.  
With just a minimal amount of care, one can extend the life of an Oriental rug by decades, even centuries in some instances.  -www.traditionalrugrepair.com
