Secrets to Cleaning Persian Rugs

carpet 05 Oct 2013

The secrets to cleaning Persian rugs are more common sense than anything. The first one being that if you spill something like wine on them, clean it up immediately by blotting it with a towel and then staying with the removal of the stain until it is completely gone. If you are having something like a dinner party, this can seem over-reactionary, but be calm about it and remember how much you paid for the Persian rug – and how much it will coast to have it professionally cleaned.

One way to prevent the scenario of someone spilling a drink on your Persian rug is either to take the rug up when large amounts of company come, or simply don’t use that room. Again, people may think that you are being too materialistic, but also remember that the only way to get a Persian rug truly clean is to have it shipped out to a rug cleaning facility, which can also be very expensive. However, let’s assume that you are a normal person and need to have a Persian rug cleaned because of unprotected wear and tear, and you also want to do it yourself.

The first thing you will need to do is vacuum the rug thoroughly, then flip it and vacuum the other side. Ideally, if you have a balcony railing where you can hang the rug and beat it softly with a broom, you will get much more dust out of it.

The next thing to do is to make up a mixture of 3 parts water and one part vinegar. Spray this over the entire rug, gently blotting as you go. Never use anything stronger than diluted vinegar on a Persian rug, such as detergent. You will never get all of it out and it can also ruin the colors. As well, an overabundance of water can cause funny-looking stains. Make sure to get the carpet as dry as possible with fans to make sure that it doesn’t mildew.

In effect, the real “Secrets to cleaning Persian rugs” is to repeat this process once a month and never let the Persian rug get so dirty that it needs to be professionally cleaned.
