Moreover, when an area rug actually starts to look soiled, know it is most likely long overdue for professional care.

Tips for Maintaining Oriental Rugs

Oriental rugs create an atmosphere of upscale beauty, artistry and elegance in your home that can’t be achieved with the average rug. Although these rugs set a high aesthetic standard, they also require a high standard care. Here are nine tips for maintaining oriental rugs. If you have been looking for ways to better maintain your Oriental rug, consider the following helpful tips:

Rotate regularly
Although some experts claim that you only need to rotate your rug every one to two years, it is usually best to shoot for rotating every one to two months, if the rug is located in a high traffic area. Doing so will allow for more evenly distributed wear, which will give your rug a more uniform look that will help maintain both appearance and value.

Block sunlight
In regards to maintaining oriental rugs in your home or business, over time, sunlight can cause the dye in your Oriental rug to fade dramatically. To prevent premature fading, you should always block sunlight from hitting the rug as often as you can. If this measure is impossible, you should make sure to rotate your rug as frequently as possible to ensure more uniform fading.

Flip the rug
Most Oriental rugs have fringes on the end that can become twisted and tangled very easily. It’s important that you avoid combing the fringe to release these tangles, since this can cause damage to the natural fibers of the fringe. Instead, flip the rug end over end to allow the fringe to straighten out more naturally. This can be done by grabbing one end of the carpet and walking it over the other end. In addition to this process, you should also shake the rug gently to help straighten out the fringe.

Although all rugs will require vacuuming, it’s especially important that you regularly vacuum your Oriental rug to prevent the natural fibers from becoming packed down by excess traffic. It is usually best to turn off the beater bar when vacuuming your Oriental rug to prevent runs or tears in the delicate fibers.

Spot clean
Stains can easily develop if you don’t immediately spot clean a spill once it occurs. First, you should dab the stain with a dry cloth to soak up all excess liquid. Do not use soap, bleach, or other common cleaning products on your Oriental rug, since this can damage the fibers.

Instead, use only water to cleanse the stain. If water doesn’t remove the stain completely, it is best to consult a professional who specializes in cleaning Oriental rugs to ensure safe and effective removal of the stain.

Utilize padding
When you place padding beneath your Oriental rug, it helps to keep it stabilized, protect the shape of the rug, and reduce wrinkling. This not only enhances the value of the rug, but also makes them safer and more comfortable to walk on.

Change the pathway
To prevent overly wearing down one region of the rug, you should rearrange your furniture to create new pathways every six months or so. This will allow for more even wear, increasing the lifespan of the rug.

Professional washing
Experts recommend having your Oriental rug professionally washed every three to five years to prevent dirt and soil buildup and to fully restore the rug’s natural fibers. With the help of a professional rug cleaner, you can extend the life of the rug and enjoy better comfort and quality throughout your use.

Air it out
Moisture buildup on your rug can have devastating effects in the form of mold and mildew growth. To prevent buildup and reduce the presence of odor, hang your Oriental rug out to dry outside for a few hours every six months, or every time your rug comes in contact with moisture.

More Advice From The Rug Cleaning Pros

Why should you have your area rug professionally cleaned? In this article, we’re going to talk about the importance of professionally cleaning your rugs.

Longer Lifespan
By allowing professionals to keep your area rug clean and bacteria-free, you encourage a longer overall lifespan. Proper cleaning can add a number of months, and sometimes years, to the length of time your family (and guests) will be able to enjoy your gorgeous rug. Elegant area rugs are expensive. They take time, dedication, and fine craftsmanship to create. Rather than shelling out several thousand Rands for another quality area rug, hire a team of experts to maintain the one you have. You’ll be happy you did.

Cleaner Floors
Having your area rugs professionally cleaned regularly is a step forward when it comes to maintaining cleaner floors. You don’t want your guests to cringe when they take off their shoes. You want them to feel comfortable and confident in their socks (or bare feet). Area rugs can become gritty or uncomfortable when they aren’t properly cleaned – even if you vacuum often. Since your family members, friends, and neighbours will be enjoying your area rug, keep it soft with our rug cleaning service.

Fewer Bacteria / Germs
There are far too many germs in homes, even with professional cleaning. Keep your home cleaner than most by allowing experts to steam clean your rug. At Kairos Upholstery, we take great pride in our ability to make your home safer and healthier for your family and your guests. Vacuuming can help eliminate dust, dirt, and grime. Rug cleaning can eliminate dangerous bacteria and germs. In the long run, this will help you save money (not to mention sanity).

Saving Money
While we’re on the thread of saving money, having your area rug professionally cleaned can help you spend less cash in the long run. Rug cleaning may cost you money, but it’s nothing compared to the costs associated with buying new area rugs and paying hospital bills for illnesses caused by bacteria.

Quality Interior Decorating
Homes are known for being chic, stylish, and classy. Whether you want to have a photographer create a spread or simply upload some photos of your own, your home will have a more elegant look when your area rugs have been steam cleaned and properly maintained.

If you are a fan of interior decorating, you’ll also want to think about how well your furniture matches your current area rug. Now imagine having to replace it with a new style or color. You may end up needing new furniture just to pull the look together. Don’t put yourself in this position. Have a professional keep your home in tip-top shape. Your area rugs will last longer and your guests will appreciate the view.

Our tried-and-true method involves water extraction. This method removes the toughest, deepest dirt while being safe and gentle with your area rugs. Water infused with a tough cleaning solution is injected into each rug. From there, suction removes dirt, allergens, the cleaning solution, and the vast majority of the moisture.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does sunlight fade carpet?
Always avoid keeping your area rugs in direct sunlight, or the colors will fade away a lot faster. Instead, rotate tour carpets at least once a month.

How do I tackle a fresh spill?
The sooner you can attend a spill, the more likely you are to save your area rug from a nasty spot. Use a paper towel to blot up the liquid, then use a damp rag to blot the stain again. Never rub the spill back and forth or you will risk rubbing the stain deep into the fibers.

Can I vacuum silk Oriental rugs?

If you own an area rug made of silk or a fringed carpet, steer clear from the vacuum cleaner or you will risk causing more damage.

How often should I vacuum my Oriental rug?
We recommend that you vacuum your area rugs at least once a week so you can thoroughly remove fresh dust dirt and debris and keep the carpeting as clean looking and fresh-smelling as possible. Vacuuming will also prevent any wool fibers from losing their natural shape.

Is my Oriental rug colorfast?
Use a hidden area on your rug and get it wet using water. Notice if the colors start to bleed. If this is the case, your rug is not colorfast. Carefully read the label and see if it reads “dry clean only”. This is another indicator that your carpet is not colorfast. If you cannot find any relevant information concerning this specific feature, do not automatically assume your rug will not bleed when washed. Instead, perform the previously mentioned test and make sure to use a white cloth and press it on the moist carpet surface. If any color dye gets transferred to the white cloth, it is not safe to personally machine or handwash your rug.
