They say if you stay in one place long enough you’ll see the whole world go by.
I’m not too sure about the whole world, but I am sure that I see a lot of rugs from around the world
Sometimes all at once, like what happened recently when customer came in with a few area rug carpets from their father’s home.
Some carpets were from Iran, some from Turkey and even some from Mexico.
All of these beautiful area rug carpets needed cleaning.
I could tell they’ve been on the floor for quite a few years without being cleaned. Considering what the customer said after they got them back you can imagine just how dirty they were.
Now high quality area rug carpets are made to stand up to quite a bit of abuse. However there does come a point where if they are not cleaned they will break down.
And if your parents or grandparents own rugs that have a bit of age to them, there’s a good chance they may have some value to them.
What’s the best way to preserve that value?
Yup, that’s right. get them cleaned (at Luv-A-Rug of course!)
