Cleaning Persian Rugs

By: Kent Pinkerton

Cleaning Persian rugs requires care and attention. However, the whole rug doesn't get dirty simultaneously. Some portions require yearly cleaning, while you can leave other areas for years without cleaning. If the rug is small, you can clean it outside your house, preferably in your garage. You should wash the Persian rug on a bright sunny day so that it dries quickly. You can wash the rug with cool water or a rug shampoo. It's advisable to use a soft, longhaired brush while cleaning Persian rugs.

A Persian rug is definitely one of your biggest investments. So you need to take care of your rugs so that they don't lose their shine. Whenever you find a stain on your rug, you must promptly clean it up. You will be able to remove the stain easily if you take action immediately. You should always use a paper towel to remove the stain. As the rugs are gentle and soft, you shouldn't use too much pressure, or scrub them forcefully. You need to clean the Persian rugs with running water. Also, don't forget to squeeze out the additional water. Then you can lay the rugs outside your home to dry. Try to dry both sides of the rugs.

Also, you should be extremely cautious while applying spot remover. Some spot removers are so harsh that they can get rid of the color of your rugs altogether. So while cleaning Persian rugs you should try the spot remover on a very small area. If the result is satisfactory, you can go ahead and use the spot remover for the entire rug. After all, you can't afford to damage your rugs. If you find cleaning Persian rugs too complicated, you can get help from the rug dealers. The dealers have professional rug-cleaning teams. They will take care of cleaning your Persian rugs.
