What should we do?
Have your knotted-pile rugs professionally washed and moth proofed every two to four years. Abbas Oriental Rug Gallery can do this best outside the home.
Many professional rug cleaners don't get your rug thoroughly damp, and the wrong shampoo can make the wool stiff because it dries out the natural oils. The loss of these natural oils diminishes the rug's protection from stains.
Even worse are those who use machines with warm water, which can cause the colors to run… a true disaster.
Abbas will pick up and deliver your rugs at no charge in Davidson County.
Absolutely. After testing for color stabilization we perform dust removal, pressure-wash soaking, and then hand wash with all-natural imported olive oil soap. Your rug is rinsed, vacuumed for water removal, and hung to dry naturally.
We only charge $2 per square foot. You will find that this is actually less expensive than anyone in the area.
We specialize in this kind of damage repair. Our artisans have 30 years of experience and use only natural wool. Any everyone with animals also needs to know that we take pet stains and odors out of rugs too, using a cleaner that only Abbas Oriental Rug Gallery has available.
We sold our new mass production rugs and now only carry antique rugs and modern collections hand-knotted with hand spun silk and lamb's wool in Nepal. These high quality rugs are made with unique designs that come in all sizes including customer orders.
