Oriental and Area Rug Maintenance Tips

Area Rug Maintenance

Oriental and area rugs serve as valuable statement pieces to any interior space. When they get dirtied, the prospect of having to clean them in a safe, thorough manner can seem daunting. If your rugs are placed in high-use areas such as living rooms or dining rooms, it leaves them susceptible to uneven wear and food stains or pet stains. Area rugs also trap dirt, odors, and other particles that are embedded deep within the rug fibers.

At The Most Thorough, we’re happy to share some tips on Oriental rug maintenance. If you’re in need of cleaning services, we’re available anytime to come to your aid.

How to Care for your Oriental Rug

Rotation – To ensure even wear, your rug should be rotated once a year. Depending on the traffic, the rotation may vary from six months to two years.

Vacuuming – Oriental rugs, like most carpeting, should be vacuumed on a regular basis to remove dirt and restore life to the fibers. Be sure not to vacuum the fringe with your beater bar! Use the end of a vacuum hose from a canister vacuum.

Padding – A quality pad used under your rug helps protect it from dirt, wear and slippage.

Make sure to safely clean up spots and spills before they set.

  • First, soak up the excess liquid by blotting with a clean absorbent material. Do not brush or rub the stain.
  • Blot dry until most of the moisture has been absorbed
  • For stains that don’t come out using these methods, be sure to call our cleaning specialists.
