Q: Are some countries of origin better than others?
A: Generally, no. Every rug weaving country is capable of making high quality rugs, as well as problem rugs. At rugsdoneright.com we are very careful in selecting the rugs we offer.
 
Q: What's the right size rug for my room?
A: In dining rooms it is important that the chairs, when pulled out from the table, remain on the rug. This generally requires an 8'x10' rug or larger. There are no precise guidelines for other rooms. The best way to determine the right size is to spread out sheets of newspaper approximating a size that you like, take the measurements, and choose the closest size available.
 
Q: Does the size include the fringe?
A: On handmade orientals the size does not include the fringe but, usually, on machine made rugs the measurements do include the fringe.
 
Q: How long does it take to deliver a rug?
A: Delivery is free on all orders within the 48 contiguous United States. Please call us for shipping costs for all other destinations. Most shipments arrive within two to six weeks of placing the order. If your rug is being imported or is not immediately available due to delays in manufacturing, we will call you with an expected delivery date. You may also call or email us for updates.
 
Q: Will the rug fade over time?
A: Most rugs will not fade under normal light conditions. In extreme situations with high sun exposure, you can expect some fading to occur. Vegetable dyed rugs will fade more quickly than the more common chemical dyes. You can learn more about dyes in the Dyes Section of our Rugs 101 primer.
 
Q: How long can I expect my rug to last?
A: Machine made rugs, hooked rugs, dhurries and kelims can last, depending on traffic, anywhere from ten years to a lifetime. Most handmade rugs are designed to be passed down from generation to generation. You can learn more about the durability of rugs in the Durability Section of our Rugs 101 primer.
 
Q: Is a rug pad necessary?
A: Yes, definitely. The proper padding can add years to the life of your rug and protect your floors as well.
 
Q: How do I maintain my rug?
A: Fortunately, rugs are very easy to maintain. Regular vacuuming and a routine cleaning every three to five years will keep your rug in good condition.
 
Q: What if I'm not happy with the rug? Can I return it?
A: Yes. If, for any reason, you're not happy with the rug you ordered, send it back for a replacement or a full refund. No questions asked. See our Return Policy for more details.
 
Q: What do I do if my rug seems to have a problem?
A: Often times, what at first appears to be a problem really isn't. Many rugs develop creases or a compressed pile during shipping. This usually goes away within a week or two. Other more serious problems may include color runs, overcasting pulls (on the edge), ripped fringe, or streaks in the pile. These problems require a replacement in which case rugsdoneright.com will ship out a replacement rug and pick up the damaged rug at no charge. See our Our Customer Protection Guarantee.
 
Q: What if my rug arrives damaged from shipping?
A: If possible, refuse delivery of the rug from the shipper and call us immediately so that we can arrange a replacement. If the rug is delivered when you are not at home, leave the rug in the original wrapping and call rugsdoneright.com for instructions. All orders from rugsdoneright.com are protected by Our Customer Protection Guarantee.
