Washing Oriental Rugs
Regular Maintenance is Important
Maintaining the beauty and value of an oriental rug is surprisingly simple. Regular vacuuming is the most important step, with care taken not to use a beater bar on the fringes. Occasionally, the back of the rug should also be vacuumed, followed by a quick vacuuming of the face. Even with diligent care however, soil and grit will eventually work its way to the base of the pile, where it cuts against the carpet wool. To avoid this abrasion, have Landry & Arcari professionally clean your rugs every 1-3 years, depending on the traffic endured.
Oops! A Spill
Spills happen. You should try to clean the spill as soon as possible before the stain sets. Start by scraping up solids and blotting, but not rubbing) up liquids (moving from the outside of the stain towards the center) with a clean rag or paper towels until dry. If dye runs onto the towel, stop and contact us. Flush area with cool water using a clean wet sponge and again blot dry. If stain remains, following the guide below.
