It is recommended that your fine rugs receive a professional cleaning every two to five years, depending on the traffic the rug receives. When you have your Fine Oriental Rugs cleaned properly it enhances both the value and beauty of the rug. Not having one cleaned is like not going to the dentist. Dirt has a sandpaper effect on the fibers. The result is unnecessary wear and tear on your rugs.
Here are some great tips for you to keep your Rugs looking great between cleaning:
Vacuum, vacuum, vacuum! This is the best thing you, as an owner, can do for your rug. First determine the direction of the nap by running your hand over the surface. Never catch the fringes in the vacuum or the rug can be ruined. Set your beater bar so that the brush just touches the top of the pile and moves easily across the rug. Periodically vacuum the back of the rug.
Potted Plants—never put a houseplant on the rug. No matter how careful you are, moisture can penetrate onto the rug, creating permanent stains or mildew damage.
Choose a proper underpad—a good quality one that will stabilize and protect your rug’s shape, enhancing the value and make your rug safer to walk on.
Fringes—If the fringe becomes uneven, the edges can be trimmed in some cases.
Ensure even wear. Your rug should be rotated once a year, before you notice the high traffic areas starting to look dirty. As well, direct sunlight has an effect on the dyes over time.
