Oriental rugs are categorized as “fine rugs,” which are not only expensive, they’re also quite delicate. These rugs are handwoven using silk and wool, which are some of the finest fabrics in the textile industry. This makes them drastically different than your generic machine-made rugs, and therefore, they require a different process to be cleaned safely and effectively.
Oriental rugs should never be machine washed. In fact, attempting to do so has the potential to cause irreversible damage to your rug. At Aegis, we only wash rugs by hand, and we never use any type of harsh chemicals or cleaning solutions. With over 40 years of experience cleaning rugs from all around the world, combined with numerous certificates and designations, we know how to get your rug cleaned safely and effectively. If you you live in the Austin area and have an oriental rug that needs to be cleaned, we invite you to call our office today!
