Upstate Rugs // Restoration
Upstate Rug Supply works with a local, family-owned business who has been cleaning and restoring handmade rugs for three generations. Every rug sold on our site has been professionally washed and, if needed, repaired by hand. Handmade rugs are carefully made and we are working hard to preserve them.
If you have other rugs in need of cleaning or repair, you can conveniently drop them off in Albany to be serviced and we will take care of the rest.
Handmade rugs are superior in durability, but here are a few tips to care for your rug...
// For weekly maintenance, vacuum your rug with the hard surface setting, avoiding the fringe. For spills, use a white cloth to absorb liquid by blotting the area. It's important to periodically wash your handwoven rugs. The dirt and sediment that settles in the rug creates abrasion in the rug pile and accelerates wear. Washing also brings out the color and sheen of the wool, maintaining its aesthetic beauty.
// Rug pads keep your rug from shifting and are recommended to preserve the shape of your rug. For local clients, we offer rug pads custom cut to fit your rug — inquire for details.
// Consider the age and condition of your rug in determining placement in your home — worn, antique rugs are best suited for low traffic areas.
