Restoring Your Oriental Area Rug Treasure

Some Common Myths About Oriental Rug Cleaning in Anderson

A misconception: Don’t clean your rugs until it’s really necessary

Some people wait for many years before providing their rugs with a professional Oriental rug cleaning. Frequent vacuuming and removing the abrasive dirt in your rug and where possible removing your shoes when walking on the rug can prolong the period before your rug needs a professional cleaning. This will by no means keep you from needing to get it professionally cleaned every 6 months to a year, which is the recommended. Another misconception: You are able to clean your own rugs without harming them Home cleaning is more of surface cleaning of the rugs. There are very great chances that your do-it-yourself rug cleaning can ruin your rug. If it is not dry quickly, it will begin to mildew and the dyes may bleed. Without proper rinsing the chemicals used for cleaning remain ingrained in the fibers of the rug and this will attract more soil and dirt exposing your rug to more damage. Only proper Oriental rug cleaning can remove this soil and dirt. This is a misconception: Oriental rugs can and should by dry-cleaned Dry cleaning methods such as dry foam, dry chemicals, and dry compounds can only result in superficial cleaning of your rug. The abrasive dirt is not removed by dry-cleaning and this means your rug will wear out faster. What your rug needs is proper wet wash cleaning. This will remove all the dirt trapped in the fibers of the rug as well as the shampoo and chemical residue that dry cleaning alone cannot remove. A costly misconception: Always opt for the cheapest option Rug cleaning is a labor-intensive procedure and if you want a proper cleaning job done then be prepared to pay a reasonable charge. Be wary of companies that charge ridiculously low prices because in most cases they will not do a proper job.
