Determining whether you can clean your Oriental rug at home can be a challenging proposition. In some cases, newer rugs may have a label that outlines the steps necessary for cleaning these items safely. Antique or valuable rugs, however, should be entrusted to a professional Oriental rug cleaning company for the best results. At Infinity Rug Care, we can provide you with the most accurate guidance on cleaning your rugs at home or in our specialized south Florida facilities.
Cleaning Your Rug at Home
Before making any attempt to clean your rug, check for colorfastness by applying water to a small and less obvious area. If the dyes stay in place without any running or spreading, then it may be safe to immerse your rug in water. Sturdy rugs can be vacuumed to remove all surface dust and debris before washing. If you choose to use a mild rug shampoo, perform the same colorfastness test before applying the solution. This can prevent damage to the dyes and colors of your rug. Rinse your rug thoroughly and either hang dry or dry it flat in an area out of direct sunlight.
