Proper Rug Care

A quality Oriental rug is an important investment that will last for generations if cared for properly.

We recommend these tips to protect your treasured heirloom. Keep in mind, while Oriental rugs are famous for their durability, some older carpets may require restoration.

1. Rug Pad

Use a high quality pad under the rug to prevent unnecessary friction and wear.

2. Clean Stains

Use clear water only dabbing, NOT rubbing, from the outer edge of the stain inward. If the stain remains have the rug professionally cleaned. Do not use home remedies.

3. Professionally Clean

Professionally clean every 3 to 5 years and more often if it is subjected to frequent heavy traffic.

4. Prevent Fading

Protect the rug from direct sunlight. If this is not possible turn the rug yearly so it will fade evenly.

5. Vacuum

Vacuum the entire face of the rug weekly.

6. Change Traffic Patterns

Rearrange furniture or rotate rug once a year to adjust heavy traffic patterns.

7. Keep Dry

Keep water from plants off on the rug as it will rot the fibers. Moisture from use in a basement can damage rugs.

8. Check for bugs

Check rugs regularly for moth or beetles in low traffic areas.
