This last point is something Lin may well be getting at when she observes that working with antique rugs takes experience and creativity. However, Lin’s statement applies just as much to specialists in rug cleaning in Daytona Beach. Only professionals who are well-versed in handling old, sensitive fabrics, and who can devise efficient cleaning processes that would not damage antiques, should handle precious Oriental rugs.
Moreover, given the intricacy of these items, these professionals themselves should have some knowledge of old-world craftsmanship and a deep respect for it. After all, a cleaner who is aware of the rich historical and cultural value of hand-made Ferahan and Isfahan rugs would be more likely to handle these properly.
