Valuable Persian Prayer Rug

This is a valid concern. Many foods and beverage can cause permanent stains on your area or Oriental rugs. This is because the fibers are protein or cellulose- based and they accept color and dye very readily. In contrast, the yarns of your installed wall to wall carpet are probably made of either nylon or polyester and are engineered to resist permanent stains and soiling.

For instance, Cranberry sauce,coffee or tea are acidic and therefore the natural pigments that they contain will soak into the fiber very fast and can act as a vegetable dye on your rug-and we may or may not be able to get it out for you.
