Like all beautiful things, rugs eventually perish. However, with the best available care and attention to cleaning and preserving, you can make sure your rug remains in its optimum state for as long as possible. As with all things of value, certain precautions must be taken when caring for oriental rugs.
Whether you have a fine handwoven, antique Persian or a funky bright, contemporary shag, you want your work of art to be cleaned or repaired thoughtfully and carefully. Natural fibers such as wool and cotton require different care from nylon or polyblends.
