The weaver’s nimble fingers move skillfully, tying knot after knot, hundreds of knots per square inch.  A seven-by-five foot rug may take one weaver over 2,500 working hours to complete. What is the result of all this arduous labor?  An oriental rug that is more than a floor covering; it is a work of art.

Are you the owner of one of these works of art?  Have you wondered how you should properly care for it?  When it comes to Oriental rug cleaning, it is best to start with the basics. The first step is regular “dusting”.   Daily or weekly dusting, or vacuuming, is essential.  This will greatly reduce the amount of damage caused by dust and grit.

Another step in your maintenance routine should be to rotate the rug three to four times a year.  This will help the rug to wear more evenly and can also prevent damage that is sometimes caused by insects.

If you have a spill, gently scrape up any portion that you can and then blot immediately with an absorbent white towel.  Never rub or scrub as this can permanently damage the rug.

Additionally, periodic, professional Oriental rug cleaning is an essential part of properly caring for your oriental rugs.  Don’t wait until the rug “looks” dirty.  Adept at hiding soil, asix-by-nine wool rug can hold up to 87 pounds of dirt before it appears soiled. 

Which is the best method of Oriental rug cleaning?  Since every rug is unique, Oriental rug cleaning performed should be most suitable method for the individual rug’s age, soil condition, type of dyes and fibers.  Oftentimes it also will depend on whether or not it is practical to remove the rug from the home.
