Oriental Rug FAQ's in Minneapolis, MN


How often should your rug be cleaned?

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.

How long does it take to clean a rug?

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.

If I spill on my rug, what should I do?

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.

Should I have a pad under my rug?

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.

Why should I purchase an Oriental rug?

  • Oriental rugs can be a good investment
  • Most rugs are one of a kind. Some rugs are programmed, meaning that they come in the same design in a variety of sizes.
  • Rugs will outlast most other types of floor covering.
  • Low maintenance.
  • Many different sizes, shapes, and colors.
  • Portability – Rugs can be moved from one room to another with relative ease when it's time to redecorate.
  • Rugs are better for your health than most carpeting. Wool is a natural fiber and doesn't contain chemicals that can be found in carpet.

How do rugs get their name?

Most Oriental rugs get their names from their country or city of origin.

How long will my rug last?

If it is properly cared for and cleaned periodically a good quality rug will last for generations.

Why is my rug a different color in some places?

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".
