Q: Can you really get the odor out of my pet stained rug?
A: Absolutely. Global Rugs has developed an exclusive wash process for pet stains and the odor they cause. The wash contains no harsh chemicals or perfume. We fully guarantee your rug will be clean and odor free!

Q: How often should I wash my rug?
A: Once very 4-5 years is usually sufficient. Remember, even if you vacuum regularly, your rug continues to hold some dirt, the environment dulls its surface and the wool needs to be conditioned. If your rug is exposed to heavy traffic and soil, we suggest washing more frequently.

Q: Should I let my carpet technician also clean my handmade rugs?
A: Definitely not! Many of these firms do a fine job on wall-to-wall carpeting, but the same techniques applied to handmade wool rugs can be disastrous! They employ cleaning agents specifically formulated for synthetic wall-to-wall carpeting while using hot water or steam to agitate and suspend the soil. This is too harsh for handmade wool rugs. Once dry, the rug will lose its luster and look dull and lifeless. In time, it will shed excessively because the hot water and detergent residue left behind has dried out the wool. Please, let them do what they are good at and let global rug hand wash your handmade wool rugs.

Q: How long before I get my rug back?
A: Normally, the whole process of rug washing, drying, grooming, and return to you takes about one week.
