Keeping Oriental and Persian Rugs in a good shape

Most important, keep the rug clean and prevent spills, mud and water from getting onto the rug. Do not step on a valuable rug with muddy boots, best practice is to wear soft in-house shoes or stay bare foot.

These are the methods you can apply to see how clean is your wool rug:

  1. Hold the rug at one corner and clap it “violently”. If a cloud of dust is the result, the rug needs cleaning.
  2. Rub the rug for a few seconds with your palm; a dirty hand means cleaning is needed.

Spills and other possible damage sources

The most common bad experience that can occur to wool rugs are liquid spills, mechanical wear and tear to the rug surface (totally due to improper pressure, such as walking with heavy boots on the carpet, putting heavy furniture on it and alike), and the fringes of the rug went loose.

Do not try to clean or repair a Persian (or Oriental) handmade rug. Leave this highly professional job to a professional. The professional cleaner not only has the expertise, he also has the necessary equipment. A good professional cleaner can also make a thorough restoration, a sometimes unavoidable necessity.

First-aid handling

Spills are the enemy of the rug. In case of a spill, there are few golden rules on providing a first aid, but turning the rug to a professional cleaner right after is a must. Unprofessional cleaning attempts will only cause more damage.

  • Act fast, time is critical
  • Use white piece of cloth (not colored) to rub gently the spill area and to absorb excess liquids
  • Do not use hard objects (such as a knife) to rub the rug
