Help your Orientral Rug Survive this Winter February 12, 2013

With snow storm Nemo hitting New England with over two feet of snow these past few days and no end in sight along with the rain and freeze cycle, you have the perfect mix for The Wintry Mess. Then we add to Nature’s Gift, salt, grit and sand. While they do help to keep us safe and upright, for the most part, there is a great deal that goes on underfoot. That would be your Oriental Rugs. Wool is a natural repellant and the hardy pile of your rug keeps what you bring in from outdoors on the surface, for a while. Gregorian Rug has some advice for simple rug care, if the rug is a small one, shake it out, and follow up with a vacuum. For larger rugs, give a thorough vacuum, finishing with one that goes with the direction of the pile. Small amounts of salt residue can be cleaned with a damp piece of white terry cloth. Feel free to call Gregorian Rugs today at  617-244-2553 with any additional questions regarding the proper care for your Oriental Rugs. And once the weather has cleared, you may consider scheduling a professional cleaning. If you have any specific and/or unusual cleaning related questions, let Gregorian Rugs help you with our cleaning and restoration service.

Stay safe this winter!
