CARE & CLEANING OF A HAND-KNOTTED RUGS AND CARPETS
Our durable hand-made rugs are made to last. We recommend annual professional cleaning and maintenance of your hand-knotted rug to ensure long-lasting endurance of its beauty and softness.
TIPS FOR EVERYDAY RUG CARE & WEAR
All rugs and carpets eventually fade in strong sun light regardless of the dyes or dyeing process used. Keep rugs and carpets protected from a direct daily sun light by keeping curtains closed, or by rotating the rug from time to time so if it does fade, the fade is even.
MOTHS & MILDEW
Regular maintenance of your hand-knotted rug such as vacuuming, rotating and periodic inspections for moths activity, will keep moths from settling in your fine rug.
Do not store unprotected rugs for a long period of time, as moths like to settle in dark quite areas, especially in the back of your fine rug.
Cases of Mildew happen when a rug is left wet for too long. The best way to eliminate and prevent mildew from spreading is to have your fine rug professionally washed, cleaned and thoroughly dry.
When in doubt call the Professionals.
Hand-knotted rugs recently removed from bag or packing materials may have a wool odor. This will subside in a week sometimes a little longer.
RUG ART offers Rug Saver Padding cut to size, as this acts as a cushion and prevents the rug from sliding, dirt penetration and from being rubbed against the surface it covers.
For difficult stains on wool or silk rugs, or when in doubts, consult a professional rug cleaner. Do not use dry cleaning methods on wool rugs and carpets.
