Persian rugs are a beautiful addition to your home. They are also a serious investment that you will want to protect. In addition to regular vacuuming, there will come a point when your rug needs to be steam cleaned. Persian rugs should be cleaned carefully to protect the fibers. Trust your Persian rugs to High Quality Carpet Cleaning.
Millions of Fibers
A high quality Persian rug is made from millions of fibers. Set close together, the rug will have a dense pile. Once dirt is ground into the nap, it can be difficult to remove. Special cleaners are required to clean the stains without damaging the backing or fibers.
Vacuuming will remove dirt from the surface, but most vacuums can not pull it from between the fibers. Pieces of dirt, dust and debris will gradually push down into the carpet, where it will start to discolor your beautiful Persian rug. Experienced rug cleaners have the equipment and cleaners necessary to reach deep into the rug to clear away the residual build-up.
Protect the Dye
One of the challenges with Persian rugs is that the dyes can bleed if they are not properly cleaned. Because these rugs are hand-made using ancient technology, they are not as resistant to harsh chemicals as modern rugs. Attempting to save a little money by cleaning the rug with a residential cleaner and grocery store chemicals can leave you with a rug that is faded and dull. Another possibility is that the colors could bleed into each other and leave you with a pattern that is muddy and mottled. Professional cleaners have the right tools and cleaners needed to restore your rug to its original beauty without harming the colors.
Residential carpet cleaners don’t have effective suction action. They put down too much water, and a large amount of it will be left behind. This is especially troublesome when you are dealing with the thick, luxurious nap of a quality Persian rug. A rug that does not dry thoroughly will be a rug that forever smells faintly of mildew. Trust the cleaning process to High Quality Cleaners to ensure that the rug is thoroughly dried and will smell clean and fresh.
Steps to Take at Home
There are steps you can take at home to keep your carpet clean and in great condition. You should consider banning shoes from the inside of the home, especially around your Persian rugs. This will help minimize the amount of dirt that is tracked onto your rug. Regular vacuuming will help clean the dirt away before it is ground into the carpet nap. Spills should be addressed immediately by blotting up as much liquid as possible with a clean cloth. Finally, have your Persian rugs cleaned by professionals to remove all the residual build-up and leave them looking fantastic, bright and beautiful.
