The appearance and quality of an Oriental area rug can truly shine through with the proper care and cleaning.

Such an item of beauty and luxury must be maintained properly for long lasting enjoyment. We offer several area rug protection options in order to greatly reduce the effects of wear on your rug. The following Oriental rug care and maintenance information is a fundamental step in preserving the longevity of your fine Oriental rug.

We offer the following rug protection services:

Area Rug Moth Repellent

Moth larvae consume wool and silk fibers and threaten the beauty and longevity of your fine Oriental rug. Prevention is the best method of protecting it from damage. We apply a moth repellent solution that will help deter moths and their larvae. It is best to professionally clean the rug prior to applying moth repellent.

Rug Fiber Protectors

When you spill something on most unprotected carpets, the fibers absorb the liquid, creating stains or odors. Applying a fiber protector delays soiling and helps prevent stains a colorful area rug from becoming permanent. It is safe, non toxic and provides equal protection on various natural and synthetic Oriental rug fibers such as wool, silk, cotton, sisal, nylon, rayon, olefin, polyester, acrylic and various blends.

Fiber Protector® by Pettyjohn's

Fiber protectors act as an invisible shield to protect your rug from unwanted spills and stains. Fiber ProTector® by Pettyjohn's will help maintain the original appearance and extend the service life of all your carpets, leathers and fabrics. It can be used to protect all textiles, even the finest natural ones. Our fiber Protector does not affect natural properties such as breathability or surface texture and it does not affect other fabric treatments such as fire proofing or anti-static treatment.

Added benefits from treatment are the significant reduction of sunfading, surface contact abrasion, static build-up and reduced dust in an indoor environment due to the improved efficiency of daily vacuuming. The surface of textiles treated with Fiber ProTector® are bacteriostatic - it prevents the development and spread of bacteria while reducing static build-up and best of all - completely harmless to humans, animals and the environment.

Rug Pads

A quality area rug pad is a sound investment in protecting and preserving your rug. We customize the size and thickness of the pad to reduce friction between the floor and the rug. The pad stabilizes the rug, enhances safety by reducing slipping and provides an added layer of sound absorption.

Eco-Friendly Rug Pads

Although there are many rug pads on the market to choose from, there are few types of desirable rug pads, which are consistently recommended by Oriental and specialty area rug experts.

  • Our recommended eco-friendly rug pad is the perfect option for any type of area rug.
  • We use and recommend an eco-friendly rug pad that is made from 28 ounce synthetic felt.
  • This type of dense pad is safe and efficient for both hardwood floors, as well as carpet flooring, as it grips well to either one and prevents rug movement and sliding.
  • The felt is made from 100% recycled post synthetic fibers and will not stain, discolor, or damage your flooring.
  • These exclusive rug pads also include the new closed cell technology providing a moisture barrier to prevent most spills or soiling from soaking through to your flooring.
  • Our eco-friendly rug pads are non-toxic and non-allergenic.

Rug Storage

When you need to temporarily store your fine Oriental area rug, please give us a call at 919-289-8424. Just as you need to properly maintain an Oriental area rug when it is being displayed, you must also take proper care of it when it is being stored. For optimal results, it is best to professionally clean your Oriental rug and apply moth repellent prior to storage. We roll and wrap the rug carefully with a special breathable paper designed for Oriental and Persian area rugs to prevent any creases or folding marks. We then store your rug in a cool, dry and well-ventilated area.
