Carpet Care Tips

The most important things you need to know to properly
maintain your rugs, carpets, furniture and drapes.

NEVER clean handmade or good machine-made rugs in your home no matter what anyone tells you or how inexpensive the price is. See Oriental Rug Cleaning

ALWAYS have your area rugs taken out of the home and cleaned by a professional company that specializes in Oriental rugs. See Oriental Rug Cleaning

Protect Your Wool Rugs and Carpets from stains and soil. Wool handmade and machine-made rugs and carpets are sold without any type of stain protection. Wool as a fiber is very absorbent. We have seen countless incidents where a spill or an accident has irreversibly stained a beautiful rug. Stain protection is a must for any rug or carpet. See Fiber-Guard™

Spills and Accidents should be addressed immediately. Have the proper tools on hand so you will be ready to act. See Spotting Kit
