What’s the right way to clean area rugs? Good question with about 15 different answers. Let’s instead ask What’s the best way to clean Persian and Oriental area rugs?
What is best will be determined by the type of rug. Wool and silk knotted rugs benefit most with full submersion cleaning where fresh water and certified cleaning solutions specifically developed for wool and silk fibers are used. However just as with everything else in life there are always exceptions! Exceptions might include dyes that are extremely unstable and you can almost bet on the dyes migrating. Another instance are foundations that do not benefit from full submersion wash. Here the better option would be to clean with our dry clean method. Thinking of yet another scenario such as an antique tapestry rug a very gentle, light cleaning with a hand tool in which there is a higher level of control over moisture and suction will bring better results.
At Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in downtown Prescott we consider the initial inspection to be KEY in knowing which area rug cleaning method is right for your Persian and Oriental rugs. This is why determining the right method by our experienced, skilled rug washers is so important.
