Upkeep of old rugs – Good oriental rugs, antique rugs, or even first-rate hand made rugs, have a proven track record when it comes to investment. Like any other investment you may own, your house, antique paintings and furniture you must take care of them in order to help maintain their value.
With old rugs, the upkeep is easier that you may think. Naturally one needs to keep it clean so we suggest vacuuming your rugs regularly based on how much traffic they get.
For example, a library rug that you walk on just a few times a day would not need vacuuming more than once or twice a month but your entry hall rug which gets the most traffic and dirt would probably need to be vacuumed once a week.
Every two to three of years we suggest you have your rugs picked up and professionally cleaned. Also to help wear the evenly we suggest rotating your rug every time it come back from cleaning.
This simple but very effective measure will aid in adding many years to the life of your rug. When it comes to fraying, unraveling or holes we suggest getting immediate assistance. As in life, the more you put it off the worse off you may be in the long run.
