Oriental area rugs are hand knotted rugs produced in China, Tibet, Nepal, Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, Turkey, Iran, and other Asian countries. They are usually made of wool or silk. At Pettyjohn's, we specialize in Oriental rug cleaning as we have over 26 years experience.
The colors of natural wool area rugs are subdued, muted and neutral, not bright, vibrant and bold, as those of Oriental area rugs. Often, these area rugs are available in only one color. The patterns, if any, are very simple and straightforward, not intricate and elaborate. Natural wool area rugs are all about simplicity: simplicity of design, color, and style. They are, however, very practical and are usually easy to take care of, since wool area rugs are naturally stain resistant.
Braided rugs are among some of the most accessible types of rug that you can add to your home. They can be found in many places, from home décor and online stores to specialty rug shops. Though they are sold everywhere, braided rugs add a unique look to any floor. They come in all shapes and sizes, and they can be also be made of wool or old fabric.
Hand-tufted rugs use high quality wool so the finished product looks and wears much like a hand-knotted rug. Unlike a hand-knotted rug, a hand-tufted rug is created without tying knots. Making a hand-tufted area rug takes a fraction of the time to make, therefore greatly reducing the cost. As a result, hand-tufted rugs are very affordable area rugs.
We can pick-up your rugs and bring them back to our special cleaning facility where they will go through our thorough cleaning process for maximum soil and spot removal. Having your rugs cleaned in our facility allows us to give them several treatments, if needed, with both sides cleaned, controlled drying and the use of various specialty tools that are not available on location.
