Area and Oriental rugs make great decorative pieces in our homes, and with a little TLC, we can keep them looking great and even increase their longevity! Below you’ll find a few basic cleaning and care tips for area and oriental rugs, and we’re certain you’ll find them helpful! Happy cleaning!
As long as your rug is small enough to pick up, you can start by beating it clean. That’s right- this is a great way to take out your frustrations! Shake your rug outside first, and then hang it on a clothesline for a good beating. Afterward, bring it back inside to finish cleaning it by vacuuming.
When it comes to washing your rugs, first make sure the rug is “machine washable.” Check the label on your rug for instructions such as these. Also check for the appropriate temperature to avoid damaging the fibers of your rugs! After shaking your rug outside, toss it in the washing machine with all settings corresponding to the washing instructions, and you’re good to go!
When vacuuming your rug, use the gentle setting and start from the center, working your way outward. Lift the fringe to vacuum beneath, and viola!
Be gentle with the fringe of your area rugs. Check the labels for care instructions, and contact a professional cleaning service for help caring for them. You can definitely rely on The Steam Team to properly care and preserve your rugs- just give us a call!
