rug weavingBefore you begin weaving your own Oriental rug, consider this. Rug weaving is an art. A skilled weaver in India can tie about 6,000 knots per day. Thus the time for one person to knot a 9′ x 12′ rug in several common qualities works out like this:

(Note that usually more than one person works at a time on rugs from about 4′ x 6′ and larger. To get the actual weaving time for a carpet, you’d need to divide the “Time required” shown here by the number of weavers working simultaneously on the rug).

Here in Florida, we may not get snow and slush during these winter and spring months, but we still track in mud, debris, and sand into our homes

These soils can take a big toll on our carpet and cause it to become stained and prematurely worn. Here are some tips to keep your carpet clean and in great shape all season long:

  • Sweep your walkway and doorstep often to keep away all leaves and damp debris.  

  • Keep a sturdy doormat at the each entrance to your home to collect the majority of the debris, and keep another rug or mat just inside the home to collect any residual soil and keep it from being tracked in.

  • Keep a shoe rack just inside your home so that your family and guests can kick off their shoes when they enter.  Mud and debris will stay on the shoes and not get tracked into your home.

  • Buy a few thick rugs or runners that you can roll out in the high traffic areas during the wettest and muddiest days of the season.  This will protect your carpet and rugs on these dirtiest days of the year.
