Prescott Valley – How to Properly Clean Persian and Oriental Area Rugs

What is the proper way to clean a Persian or Oriental rug?  Talk about a loaded question! There are many different answers to the simple question of “What is the right way to clean area rugs?”  So instead, you should ask “What is the best way to clean your particular Persian and Oriental area rugs?”

The best way to clean has to be determined by the type of rug.  When it comes to wool and silk rugs, most benefit from full submersion cleaning washing, using fresh water and cleaning solutions that are specifically developed for wool and silk fibers.  But as with everything else, there are exceptions to this, too!  Rugs with unstable dyes need to be treated differently to prevent the dyes from migrating where they aren’t supposed to.  There are also some foundations that do not benefit from a full submersion washing.  A dry cleaning method would be more suitable in certain situations.  Antique tapestry rugs require a very gentle and light cleaning with a hand tool that has a higher level of control over moisture and suction to yield better results.

Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott AZ considers many factors during our initial inspection of rugs and KEY to knowing which cleaning method is right for your Persian and Oriental rugs.  Our experienced and skilled rug washers have the important decision in determining the right cleaning method for each rug.  Additionally, the smart home cleaning services that offer wall to wall carpet cleaning avoid the pitfalls associated with washing their client’s rugs in the home and instead choose to bring them to Prescott’s rug experts here at Arizona Oriental.  Knowing your limitations is always a great first step in getting Persian and Oriental area rugs cleaned properly.

Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floor and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
