No Plants on Your Oriental Rugs Please!

I recently was forwarded a few photos of my clients home and was highly distressed to see a plant placed on a very special rug she purchased from my gallery.  I immediately sent her the relevent information that this could damage her rug.

What occurs is moisture collects under the plant.  Seeping down slowly into the very stucture of the rug.  If the rug stays moist the process of deterioration can begin and move forward quickly. Here is more info: Water damage on rugs!

There are some additional advices in this article about placing rugs on potentially moist cement floors.  Hopefully this will be of some use.
