Bonus tips— How to keep your rugs beautiful and clean
Rugs in your home create an atmosphere of upscale beauty, artistry, and elegance. Although these rugs have a high aesthetic standard, they also require a high level of maintenance.
This may seem obvious but vacuum your rugs at least once a week to remove dirt, dust, and debris. This prevents dirt from being trodden deep into the fabric that makes it much more difficult to remove.
Stains can quickly form if you do not immediately spot clean the spill. To begin, dab the stain with a dry cloth to absorb any excess liquid. Soap, bleach, and other common cleaning products should not be used on your Oriental rug because they can damage the fibres.
Experts recommend that you have your Oriental rug professionally cleaned every three to five years to prevent dirt and soil build up and restore the rug's natural fibres fully. You can extend the life of your rug and enjoy better comfort and quality by hiring a professional rug cleaner.
