With proper care, Oriental rugs can last for generations. We recommend using rug padding to help protect rugs from wear, dirt and slippage. Over time the pads will break down and need to be replaced every 5-8 years. The time to take care of spills, spots or stains is immediately after they occur. Use a spoon to remove all solid materials, then blot the spill using clean white tissues, napkins or towels. Pretest spot removal formulas in an inconspicuous place. If the dye bleeds, have the rug professionally cleaned. Do not over wet the rug. Work with small amounts of formula and be sure to blot — do not rub. Rubbing can cause permanent damage to the rug fibers. As you blot, work from the outer edge of the spot toward the center. Be patient — some stains respond slowly. Remember, haphazard attempts at spot removal may result in permanent stains or damage. Certain stains require special professional care. Vacuuming your rug regularly will remove harmful grit and loose soil. If your rug is fringed, be careful to keep the vacuum off the fringe to prevent damage. For antiques and flatweaves, it is preferable to use a carpet sweeper instead of a vacuum cleaner. Rotate the rug every 12-24 months to evenly distribute the effects of sun fade and wear patterns. Rugs should be professionally cleaned at least every 3-4 years, depending on the amount of traffic, environmental conditions and soil. Persian Galleries offers the special professional cleaning services when needed. Our process is a hand cleaning process, so it may take a bit longer, but you are ensured it is getting the close attention it deserves.
