A: This is absolutely the worst thing you can do to a handmade rug or area carpet.

A: Yes, our expert technicians can remove mildew from rugs if it is not very old. There are cases when mildew can be permanent.
A: Yes! Home treatments can effectively minimize fresh stains. The key is a quick action that doesn’t make things worse. First, while still wet, blot spots immediately with something absorbent such as paper towels or cotton rags. Don’t add water and don’t scrub. Blot both the front and back of the rug until no more moisture can be removed.
Next, check to see if any of the rug’s dye has transferred to your towels or rags. If you see dye transfer, stop and let the rug dry. If not, you can blot out more of the stain with a sponge dampened (not dripping) with water and a drop of liquid dish detergent. Get the area as dry as possible by pressing paper towels on the nap and then elevate the area so it can dry from both sides. If the stain is visible after the rug is dry, give us a call.
Don’t worry or panic! Anything you can’t get out now can be removed later by a professional cleaner, even wine and urine stains that have dried on the rug. Don’t try to flood a stain with large amounts of water. This can create other problems. Just wait to have them worked on by one of our technicians.
A: Yes, try spot cleaning with a sponge dampened (not dripping) with a weak solution of water and a drop of liquid dish detergent. Stop if you see any dye bleed. Blot the rug as dry as possible by pressing paper towels on the nap. Then elevate the area so it can dry from both sides. Do not try to rinse or flood the rug with water. This can be done by one of our cleaning technicians or when the rug comes to our facility for complete cleaning.
Most other household cleaning agents (Fantastic, Oxyclean, laundry bleach, etc.) are too powerful for home use on natural fiber and may do more harm than good.

A: Yes. Rugs that have shifted out of shape can be stretched or blocked to improve their shape. Once we see your rug, we can give you a good idea of how much it can be improved.
A: It is possible for some rugs to sustain minor shrinkage due to the cleaning process. This is more likely on rugs the have never been washed. Some rugs may also become slightly larger. Please note that most handmade area rugs are not square before cleaning.
A: Yes. Rugs look better and last longer when kept free of dust, loose soil, and animal hair. Vacuums can be damaging to rugs though, so it’s important to be careful. For regular vacuuming, move with the direction of the nap or pile (the direction the rug feels smoothest), not against it. Also, DO NOT vacuum fringes with an upright vacuum.
A: Yes, they are. We recommend them, particularly in high traffic areas. Rug pads hold rugs in place, help reduce wear and make rugs more comfortable to walk on. We sell a variety of rug pads that can be cut to custom-fit your rug. When your rug and new padding is delivered back to you we will spread out the padding and put the rug properly on top of the pad. We make it really easy.
