How Do You Clean an Oriental Rug?

Cleaning Your Oriental Rug

Cleaning your Oriental rug can be a tricky proposition. At Infinity Rug Care, we offer Oriental rug cleaning services designed to suit your needs and your budget. Routine vacuuming and spot cleaning can handle many minor issues with your rugs. For deep cleaning, however, entrusting your antique rugs to us is the most effective way to ensure the best results for your south Florida home or business.

Routine Care for Rug Owners

Depending on the age and condition of your rug, you may be able to vacuum it to remove surface dust and debris. Antique and silk Oriental rugs, however, do not respond well to frequent vacuuming and should be cleaned professionally to achieve the best possible results. Newer rugs may have labels that detail the proper cleaning procedures and the right way to deal with stains or dust. Infinity Rug Care can provide you with the most effective recommendations for cleaning your Oriental rugs safely.

The Professional Cleaning Process

At Infinity Rug Care, we utilize a 10-step process to ensure that your Oriental rugs are clean and fresh upon their return to your home or office.

    1. Inspecting for damage or fraying
    2. Testing for colorfastness and identifying the dyes used in coloring your rug
    3. Removing dust and surface debris
    4. Pretreating stains and discolored areas
    5. Immersing your rug in cleaning fluid and using brushes to deep clean
    6. Rinsing multiple times to remove all cleaning fluid and dirt
    7. Drying the rug flat or by hang-drying it
    8. Cleaning the fringes and making any necessary repairs
    9. Applying protection to prevent future stains
    10. Performing a final inspection

The team at Infinity Rug Care will then return your rug to your home or office to provide you with the greatest possible convenience for your Oriental rug cleaning needs.

Risks of Home Cleaning Your Oriental Rug

You may be tempted to clean your rug at home. While this may be fine for inexpensive rugs, attempting antique or Oriental rug cleaning on your own could result in bleeding of dyes and colors. Additionally, rough treatment could cause lasting damage to your family heirloom that could require the assistance of a professional rug repair company to resolve.
