  Caring for Your Rug
       
  For over 2,500 years, oriental rugs have been used in the East by nomads and villagers for warmth and beauty. More recently in the West, they have graced homes with their art and luxury, and complement any decor. An Oriental rug is a purchase for a lifetime and will last for many generations when properly maintained.  
       
  The Wonders of Wool
       
  Oriental rugs are generally made of wool and are easily and economically maintainable. Wool rugs are extremely durable and consistently out-perform other materials. Unlike other fibers, wool is much more resilient, cleans better, and stays clean longer.  
       
  Vacuuming
       
  Perhaps the single most important thing you can do to preserve and maintain your rug is vacuum it on a regular basis to remove surface and embedded dirt and restore life to the fibers.  
       
  Cleaning
       
  Depending on the amount of traffic, a professional washing is recommended every one to three years to protect and enhance your Oriental rug.  
       
  Rotation
       
  To insure even wear, your rug should be rotated once a year. Depending on the traffic, the rotation may vary from six months to two years.  
       
  Rug Pad
       
  A quality rug pad will protect your rug from wear and add comfort by providing cushion between your rug and your hard floors and prevent accidents by keeping rugs from slipping or buckling. We will be happy to provide you with the correct padding.
