The Three Keys To Keeping Your Oriental Rug Clean

If you appreciate the artistry of your hand-woven rug, it is essential that it is properly maintained to ensure that it maintains it's striking appearance.

The key to keeping your rug clean is WAR.

W – Weekly vacuuming

A – Annual rug cleaning

R – Regular spot checks

The importance of weekly vacuuming of your rug cannot be overemphasised. With regular foot traffic, small dirt particles build up in the base of the rug which shears and tears the delicate backing fibres. Acting like sandpaper these abrasive particles will decrease the lifespan of your handmade tapestry.

Regular vacuum cleaning is the easiest way to reduce the amount of dust, dirt and grit from your Turkish rug. Another benefit of regular vacuum cleaning is that it will remove the thin layer of grime that builds up on your rug. As a result, the colours, patterns and images will be brighter and more colourful.

There can be up to 1kg of dirt in the base of your rug. Is it time to have your rug professionally cleaned?

Annual Rug Cleaning

While regular vacuum cleaning is the easiest and most cost-effective way of maintaining your rug, it still does not remove all of the dirt that penetrates deep into the base of the rug.

The only way of completely removing abrasive particles and acid films from your rug is by having it professionally cleaned. Commercial vacuum cleaners can only remove so much dirt before it starts to damage the fibres of a rug.

Professional rug cleaners are able to provide full immersion rug cleaning which thoroughly cleans each and every fibre of the rug without damaging the fibres or dyes.

Regular Spot Checks

Accidents happen in the workplace. Whether you have a coffee spill, an ink cartridge leak or chewing gum lodged on the shoe of a customer, it is important that you deal with stains on your rug as soon as possible. The longer that the stain is on a rug the more likely that it will cause permanent damage.

One technique that a lot of business owners in Sydney use is to ensure that their office building has a rug spot treatment kit. Along with suitable instructions, this simple kit can help prevent long-term damage to your vintage rug. Oriental Rug Care has a range of spot treatment kits that could help you extend the lifespan of your hand-woven rug.

Warning: Do not use a carpet cleaning company to clean your rug. To the novice, carpets and rugs may seem like they need the same cleaning techniques, there is actually a vast difference. Having your rug cleaned by a commercial carpet cleaner is like getting your local house painter to paint your luxury car. Professional rug cleaners use specialised equipment, cleaning solutions and techniques to ensure they don't damage the delicate fibres and dyes.
