Karastan rugs are a very popular choice for many fine homes throughout the Triangle area. With regular maintenance, these fine rugs can look fabulous for many years. The majority of the Karastan rugs we see come through our shop for cleaning or repair are family pieces, either passed down through generations or purchased over 40 years ago! We love being able to preserve the memories these rugs hold for future generations.
Known for quality and durability, Karastan rugs have been made in Eden, North Carolina since the early 1900s. (Did you know you can contact the manufacturing facility to schedule a tour?!) The wool used to make these rugs is the luxurious Wools of New Zealand. Today, Karastan is the only US-made spool Axminster.
Karastan rug cleaning is very straightforward for the professional rug cleaner. The wool is resilient and can clean up quite beautifully despite normal wear and tear. Regular vacuuming will help keep dry soiling to a minimum. If you are having difficulty maintaining the appearance or health of your Karastan wool rug, it is best that you contact Pettyjohn’s.
At Pettyjohn’s Cleaning & Restoration, we have the necessary equipment to properly clean all kinds of rugs. We understand that each piece has its own level of durability so we perform the necessary methods to preserve the rug’s form and appearance. Your Karastan rug will be in good hands, so give us a call at 919-371-5573. We serve properties that are located in Wake Forest, Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Triangle, Morrisville and the surrounding areas in North Carolina.
It is possible to spare your Karastan rug from further damage.
Our client was tired of dealing with the long fringes that come standard on a Karastan and asked for them to be removed. We were able to wash the rug and remove the fringes, securing the ends with new factory serge binding. The end result is exactly what our client wanted – a clean and healthy rug, sans fringes!
