Back Cover Copy: These days nearly everyone has carpet in his or her home and you probably do too. Wall to wall carpet is as common today as a car in the driveway or a television set in the living room. After a home and an automobile it is the third most expensive investment made in your lifetime. The majority of people today know very little about this expensive investment. The sad truth is that less than one percent of the population knows enough about carpeting to make the proper choice of purchase, or even the best method of cleaning. Ten years of research into consumer floor covering problems has made author Robert L. Selby one of the most knowledgeable men in his field. His experiences with home owners, renters, real estate and property management firms have brought into focus the tremendous lack of knowledge that the consumer has in regard to their floor covering., he also has uncovered widespread fraud, incompetence and deceptive advertising by carpet retailers and so-called "professional" carpet cleaners. Ten years of research into consumer floor covering pro¬blems has made author Robert L Selby one of the most know¬ledgeable men in his field. His experiences with home-owners, renters, real estate and property management firms have brought into focus the tremendous lack of know-ledge that the consumer has in regard to their floor cover¬ing. He also has uncovered widespread fraud, incompe¬tence and deceptive adver¬tising by carpet retailers and so-called "professional" car¬pet cleaners. From coast to coast in nearly every city the consumer is being cheated and lied to by the greedy and unscrupulous. "Knowledge is the key to pro¬tection," states the author. So it is through this book that you, the consumer, may be aided in all phases of floor covering... from purchase to spots and stains and every¬thing in between.

Carpet repair shop in the bazaar of Esfahan. The gentleman who was showing us around mainly bought old carpets (many from nomads) to clean, repair and sell. He showed us the repair shop where he has his carpets repaired.Old Carpet
This may be embarrassing, but it's also why we bought new carpet. We had this carpet cleaned every year, but it just did not hold up.
Richard Parsons treats the reader to not only a veritable feast of carpets and rugs, but also to a fascinating journey through the history of a diverse, colourful, multi-racial country. He shares his respect and admiration for Afghanistan's stoical people, who somehow, despite political upheavals, forced resettlement, a harsh climate and often primitive nomadic living conditions, manage to produce exquisite works of art which reflect great pride in their many-faceted heritage. Afghan rugs are instantly appealing due to their traditional colours and bold designs, from sumptuous piled purdahs to flat woven prayer rugs.See also:
