Whether you have a genuine oriental rug or a machine-made copy, you want to keep it clean and fresh. Works of art that grace your floor, these rugs see a lot of abuse over the years. Cleaning them will keep them looking great for years to come. DIY Oriental rug cleaning is tempting, but it’s not always the best idea.
Age and Value
If you have a valuable oriental rug, then you do not want to clean it yourself. Hand-knotted rugs must be treated carefully to preserve the materials and protect the value of the rug. This carpet is an asset, so you should treat it as one. If you have a valuable rug that needs cleaning, trust it to High Quality Carpet Cleaners.
Oriental rugs are cherished for their incredible colors and beauty. Cleaning the rug should revive the colors and let them show again, it should never cause them to fade or bleed. However, using the wrong techniques or detergents can do just that. Protect your area rug and preserve it for future generations by trusting it to the professionals. Our trained team members will look closely at your rug to determine which cleaners should be used to make it look fresh and clean again, so you can enjoy a rug that looks amazing.
Using excessive amounts of water can cause problems for your oriental rug. The wool fibers will hold the water, making it difficult to dry. Too much water can also affect the structural integrity of the carpet. That’s why High Quality Carpet Cleaning offers dry cleaning techniques for your expensive oriental rugs. We can effectively clean the rug using less water, protecting the carpet and your investment.
While it’s not a good idea to clean your oriental rugs at home, there are steps you can take to keep your carpet clean in between professional visits. Welcome mats placed outside and inside all exterior doors will help catch dirt before it lands on your rug. Establish a firm policy of no shoes in the house to further reduce the amount of dust that is buried in your rug. Vacuum it regularly to remove debris before it can be ground in.
When to Clean
You don’t want to have your oriental rug cleaned too often, but it can be difficult to know when the time is right. Obvious stains should be treated as they occur. High Quality Carpet Cleaning accepts jobs of all sizes, including treating stains on an oriental rug. To determine if it’s time to have a full cleaning performed, lift one corner of the rug and tap it. If a cloud of dust appears, then it is time to call in the professionals and have it thoroughly cleaned.
