Dog Loves Staircase Rug Runner!

Large dog ready to descend a flight of steps after a staircase rug runner was installed!

After the installation of a hand-knotted rug runner this dog enthusiastically kept on going up and down the same stairs that he had previously only avoided!

Home improvement for humans and pets!

Staircase runners are a great way to increase the level of safety and comfort for you and for your pets! A handmade wool Oriental rug runner provides functional beauty to any type of wood staircase, not only as a cosmetic enhancement – but the added traction and cushioning as well as the increased visual differentiation on each step are factors that can make a stairway runner well worth the cost.

Case Study:

For medium to large size dogs climbing a flight of wood steps can be a bit of a challenge – and one that many dogs prefer to avoid. Even though they could otherwise negociate practically any stairwell, if necessary, the typical varnished wood steps on most flights of stairs offer no traction – so it is simply a case that their footing is just not very secure (you can almost hear those tapping claws!).

In this case, and when the runner installation was completed, both the dog and his owner were pleasantly surprised!

Preparing Your Oriental Rugs for the Holidays

Nejad Rugs wishes you warm holiday greetings

The Holidays can be a wonderful time with friends and family gathering in your home to celebrate all of the festivities of the season.  One way you can start preparing your home to look its very best is by getting your Oriental Rugs professionally cleaned and repaired and replacing old padding if necessary.

Another great tip for not just the holidays but year round is to prepare an emergency quick fix box.   My quick fix box contains all of the basic stain remover products that I’ve already researched and tested on my Persian Rugs and upholstery fabrics.  Your box should include a bottle of white vinegar, box of baking soda, a bottle of distilled water, Kosher salt, a bottle of peroxide, colorless sponges, clean white terry towels, Q-tips, dye-free laundry detergent  and any other commercial cleaners that you have already pretested.  I also keep in my box a laminated solution chart based on the type of spill.
