Oriental Rugs come in all different shapes and sizes. The most common material found in oriental rugs is wool and often times silk as well.
Both are very resilient fabrics and with the proper maintenance your rugs should last you several lifetimes depending on the quality.
To determine the quality of an oriental handwoven area rug, several things are taken into consideration. The two most important and decisive factors are knot count and age. The tighter the weave, the higher the knot count, which means the rug weaver spent a lot of time and attention weaving this rug, creating a priceless work of art.
In many cases a standard 8×10 wool rug can have taken 7-9 months to weave by hand.
We take great pride in cleaning each and every area rug we come across. Our family has been in the rug business for three generations. By combining centuries old cleaning techniques and modern technology we are extremely confident that we offer the safest and most thorough oriental rug cleaning NYC experience.
Every rug that comes into our shop gets individually looked at and we cater the cleaning to meet the specific needs of that particular rug. We never wash two rugs at the same time. This is a common practice which can result in cross contamination from on rug to another, color transfer, and a sub par cleaning.
Oriental rugs can often times be very expensive and delicate. This is why you should never trust your fine rugs to anyone who is not a certified rug cleaning specialist.
An uneducated rug cleaner can many times permanently damage a rug with an improper cleaning method. Several things can go wrong during the cleaning process, for example, color bleeding, pile damage, buckling and shrinking.
We often times get requests to fix and repair damage done to area rugs from an improper wash. To help avoid a rug cleaning nightmare, we recommend asking these 5 questions before sending out your rugs for cleaning.
- How long have you been cleaning oriental rugs?
- What is your cleaning process?
- Are you fully certified and insured?
- Do you perform the work yourself or sub the rugs out?
- What type of guarantees do you offer?
These 5 questions should help you vet the company you are thinking about hiring for your rugs and ensure that you can feel comfortable and confident that your rugs are in the right hands.
