Care

How to minimize the risks of damaging to your rug:

Watch Out for Moths – Clothes moths present a threat to your luxury or vintage rugs, as they feast upon protein fibers like wool, silk, and specialty hair fibers (though they can and do consume synthetic fibers as well). The best way to protect your rugs from these pests is to keep your rooms and rugs clean. Check the underside of your rug periodically to look for evidence of moths, especially the white silky cobwebs of the larvae. Some residences tend to have moths. If you fall into this category use moth spray periodically, even on the reverse side of rugs in active use.

Storing Your Rugs – If you store rugs folded or rolled, use mothballs or cedar shavings and check the rugs every month or two. Make sure to have them fully wrapped and sealed so that water and humidity can’t enter. It might be wise to not have the rug sitting directly on the floor of your storage facility. If a leak does occur, it might be days before you find out and you surely would not want your rug sitting in water for the entire time.

Burns – Make sure to have something placed under a candle or incense. This way, the hot wax and ash won’t fall directly onto the carpet’s surface.

Flower Pots – Make sure you have something under flower pots where the water can pool. As long as the area rug remains dry, you will not see any issues.

Minimize Foot Traffic – Even the finest rug will wear down if subjected to repeated traffic.

Rotate the Rug – It is important to rotate the rug every two years so that traffic is spread evenly over the piece.

Vacuum Your Carpet – Frequent vacuuming is essential to removing dust and grit that is ground into the pile under foot traffic. Use only ordinary suction vacuuming.
