How to Care for your Oriental Rug

If you’re unsure how to keep your carpets immaculate, worry not, as we’re here to guide you. Read on to discover the steps to take during the cleaning process.

  • Rotation – To insure even wear, your rug should be rotated once a year. Depending on the traffic, the rotation may vary from six months to two years.
  • Vacuuming – Oriental rugs, like most carpeting, should be vacuumed on a regular basis to remove dirt and restore life to the fibers. Be sure not to vacuum the fringe with your beater bar! Use the end of a vacuum hose from a canister vacuum.
  • Padding – A quality pad used under your rug helps protect it from dirt, wear and slippage.
  • Washing – Having your Heirloom Oriental rug professionally cleaned will ensure it is done properly and with care to protect your investment.
