The Wonders of Wool
Oriental rugs are generally made of wool and are easily and economically maintained. Rugs of wool are extremely durable and consistently out-perform other materials. Unlike other fibers, wool is much more resilient, cleans better and stays clean longer.

Your trusted professional Oriental rug cleaners will insure a skilled cleaning that brings our the richness of color and softness of the wool. Depending on the amount of traffic, a professional washing is recommended every three to six years for the cleaning of your Oriental rug.
In case of damage, just about any problem has a solution with a professional restoration. Old and antique rugs sometimes need to be rewoven where worn and restored to life. Newer rugs, are rarely in need of repair. An Experienced professional must always be consulted in these matters.
Blotting and Stain Removing
When spills occur, dilute with plenty of water. Next, blot from the edge of the spill towards the center. Avoid rubbing the area. For solid spills, take a spoon and carefully scoop-up the material. It is always best to attack the spill immediately. The following information and chart will help you eliminate most stains. For further advice, contact us. We will be glad to help.
Stain Removal Procedure
Always rub or brush lightly from the outer edge toward the center of stain to prevent spreading or causing "the ring" when using solvents, especially on twist rugs and pile carpets. On old, dry, or stubborn stains, saturate, blot, and brush. Repeat this operation as often as necessary to remove the stain completely.
