Under normal wear we suggest cleaning your rug every 1-3 years
depending on the color of the rug and the amount of traffic it receives. If you have pets or unusually high traffic a cleaning every year would be ideal.
It takes 7-10 days
to do the normal cleaning process. Repairs and extra cleaning take more time. Dog & cat urine removal cleaning will take longer.
Immediate attention should be given. Remove as much of the spot as possible by blotting with a clean rag or paper towel. One cup of cold water mixed with a teaspoon of a mild detergent (Dove or Ivory dishwashing soaps work well), can be used for most spots. White vinegar and water mixed equally can be applied on pet urine spots. This will help neutralize the spot before it sets in. Avoid using any store purchased carpet-cleaning products. They are generally meant to clean synthetic materials and may have an adverse effect on wool rugs.
Keljik's Oriental Rugs cleans all types of area rugs. We can treat rugs for pet odors, moths, and mildew. If you have any cleaning questions or concerns feel free to call us at 612-823-6338.
We recommend having a pad under rugs on all hard surfaces. A pad will increase the life of your rug and make it more comfortable to walk on. It will also keep it from sliding around on the floor. We also carry pad for rugs on top of carpet.
Most Oriental rugs get their names from their country or city of origin.
If it is properly cared for and cleaned periodically a good quality rug will last for generations.
This is a common occurrence in hand made rugs and is referred to as "abrash". This is mainly caused by a change in the dye lot. When the rug is woven, the weavers will usually dye the wool when it is needed. Occasionally the colors will be slightly different and this will cause "abrash".
