All carpets are soaked for a pre-determined amount of time and follow it with a thorough and extensive brushing of the entire piece, including the piece's fringes. We take due care to minimize the risk of damage caused by possible color-run and compromising sensitive fibers in the piece's weaving.
Carpets are cleaned to remove the dust particles that reside deep between the fibers at the intersection where warps meet wefts and in between the fibers that comprise the pile. These are particles that are not generally extracted by ordinary vacuuming.
Allow the piece to dry flat to minimize the risk of the wool shrinking, curling, or compromising the shape of the rug or kilim.
