George Ayoub Carpet has been serving customers in Ashburn, VA with the highest quality Oriental Rug Cleaning since 1987. Below are some tips to prolong the life of your oriental rugs:
- Clean the stain right away
Do not wait. Cleaning stained spots immediately, letting a stain settle in your rug will eventually damage your rug and will be costly when professional repair is needed.
- Clean your oriental rug once a month
Even if you think that your rug is clean. Oriental rugs pick up dirt fast, so try to clean it at least once a month to make sure the dust not settle in the rug fibers.
- Vacuum the 2 sides of the rug
Most people clean the one side of the rug, ignoring the other side could also damage the rug, flip one corner of your rug and give it a kick, if you see a lot of dust, this means your rug needs a professional rug cleaning and to our Ashburn, VA customers we always recommend professional oriental rug cleaning performed regularly, especially for high end rugs.
- Use a mix of water and white-vinegar to clean your rug
Mix water vinegar (3 parts water and 1 part vinegar) (Do not use soap or harsh chemicals on your rug) and remember that your oriental rug may be made with vegetable dyes and the colors can easily fade. Chemicals are big reason for rug colors to fade.
- Use light brush and work it through the fringes.
If the fringes are pure white, apply less vinegar and place a fan on the fringes to dry it faster.
- Use a fan to dry the rug faster avoid keeping the Oriental rug wet for long
