FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
ABOUT RUG WASHING

Will washing harm my rug? We specialize in washing hand made rugs. We have been doing it for a long time and have trained with the best instructors in the country. Still there is some risk involved with washing hand made rugs. There are so many variables regarding construction, country of origin, warp and weft fibers, yarns, dyes, repairs, age, soiling etc., that It’s not possible to guarantee there will no damage to a given rug. However, rug washing always extends the life of a rug and keeps the colors vibrant, and the nap pile soft and pliable. We take great care to minimize any risk to each rug we wash and have safely washed hundreds of Persian, oriental, Navajo, silk, antique, cotton and synthetic rugs with no incident of harm.

Will my rug bleed? It is possible that a rug may bleed. However we always test rugs for dye stability and we’re prepared for bleeding if it occurs. We can safely reduce the damage if dye migration occurs and in most case completely correct even pre-existing dye problems!

How long does it take to wash my rug? We like to have the rug for one to three weeks for a complete washing . it just depends on the characteristics of the rug as to how long it will take. Some rugs we can dust in 30 minutes and some take three hours to completely remove the dry soil from the rug. The same goes for the washing process. We try to return each rug as soon as possible.

Do you charge to pick up rugs? Yes we do have a $40 pickup and delivery fee in Spartanburg county.  Additional fees may be added for out of county addresses, rugs that are under beds, pianos and other cumbersome furniture.  You are welcome to setup an appointment to drop off rugs at our location to avoid these fees.

ABOUT RUG CARE

Will vacuuming harm my rug? No! Vacuuming will extend the life of your rug. Do not use a vacuum with a beater bar on your rug. If possible use the attachment for hardwood floors or upholstery, especially on and around fringe. Dry soil that can be vacuumed up is responsible for most wear and tear on rugs.

Should I rotate my rug? Yes, once a year will reduce the damage caused by foot traffic and sunlight!

Do I really need a rug pad? No. However a quality pad will hold the rug in place, reduce wear damage and be more comfortable to be on.

How do I clean spots? Use a safe neutral cleaner such as the Spot Out that we give all our customers. Use a tiny bit on an absorbent white towel to blot out most spots that you will get on your rug. Do not rub or scrub on your rug. This may cause irreversible damage. If the spot does not come out you should call us to remove it.

ABOUT RUG REPAIR

Is my rug worth repairing? In most cases the answer is yes. Left unrepaired the rug will continue to unravel. The sooner the repair is made the less expensive the repair will cost. Most good handmade rugs can last for generations. We have repaired rugs over 200 years old! We can give you an exact quote and offer advice on replacement costs.

How long will it take? It depends on the magnitude of the repairs. Small holes and tears can usually be repaired in a week or less. Over casting and selvedge repairs can take longer.

Will the repair lessen the value of my rug? Repairs that we make can almost always be reversed if desired! Repairs almost always extend the life, beauty and integrity of the rug.

Will the repair be noticeable? We use wool, cotton and nylon yarns in our repairs that are matched as closely as possible to the original yarns. However the yarns in some rugs are hundreds of years old and our yarns are relatively new. Still most repairs are unnoticeable to all except those who know where to look!
