The carpet, rug and floor covering industry has gone through many changes in the past forty years that I remember. There were limited types of rugs and kilims used as floor covering. But now, you see innovation everywhere.
Since we are very active in rug cleaning, rug repair, rug water damage restoration, and appraisal, we see and receive all kinds of sheepskin lambskin rugs, Flokati rugs, shag rugs, leather rugs and etc.
Here, I like to write about one particular rug that we have been receiving very much lately; the Lambskin/Sheepskin rugs. This type of rug, if we can call it rug, is very decorative. A Sheepskin rug adds beauty and character to any home. They are soft and add a very sophisticated look to any place in which they are used. Sheepskins have different uses around the home; they can cover the floor to give a room some warmth, cover a sofa, and be draped over a bed for style and comfort. These are just a few of the many uses of a lambskin rugs. Sheepskin offers style and comfort to any room and is a wonderful addition in any home. Sheepskin rugs are long lasting and last much longer than many man made fibers if we take care of them properly.
Sheepskins should be shaken or lightly vacuumed preferably without using the beater. We should never vacuum Lambskins with beater which have metal brushes as this would damage the long and fluffy pile of the rug.
We specialize in professional cleaning of sheepskin Lambskin rugs. Many of the owners of this type of soft and beautiful objects or women. Some of these animal skins have pet stains on them. Why? Because these skins are soft and comfortable to lay on; therefore, pets love them.
Rug Blog is a wonderful way to communicate with those who care about rugs of any kind.
