Oriental Rug

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.

Wool Rug

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 Rug

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 Rug

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.

Area Rug Cleaning

A dirty rug is neither inviting nor eye pleasing. If you are no longer confident that your rug is adding to your home’s aesthetic appeal, then it may be time to have that rug cleaned. We are excited share with you the intricacies of the rug cleaning process.  
Many factors, like the rug’s material, construction, and age must be considered before you can choose the appropriate cleaning materials and methods for it. Inappropriate cleaning methods or chemistry can risk damaging the rug. For example, adding water to lighten a stained area may cause the dye in certain rugs to bleed and run. The same thing can also happen if you use a harsh cleaner on a rug made of delicate materials.
So if you want to continue using your area rug for many years to come, your best option is to have it cleaned by a professional, like Pettyjohn’s Rug and Carpet Cleaning.
