Oriental Rugs: Why They Should Come With a Warning

Thursday, October 8th, 2015 | Uncategorized | No Comments

Why do Oriental rugs, which are known for their longevity and durability, require special handling when cleaning? These hand-crafted pieces of art continue to be manufactured by hand in much of the same way they have been for more centuries. When properly cared for, these heirlooms, which are crafted using durable, all-natural fibers including wool and cotton, will generally appreciate in value over time and can be shared with future generations to enjoy.

But these same natural and organic materials, including dyes, make these otherwise durable and long lasting treasures potentially prone to permanent and usually irreversible damage.

While searching for ways to clean their rugs, Oriental rug owners often turn to the Internet for advice. While some suggestions are indeed valid, others can lead to disastrous results. Some rug owners have actually been encouraged to use the same cleaning process used to clean their wall-to-wall carpeting. Others have been encouraged to wash their rugs on the family driveway. Just imagine the damage that will result when moving a wet Oriental rug over an abrasive concrete surface.

The only way to properly clean an Oriental rug is to wash it in a special, climate controlled facility with specially treated water that is pH balanced and to use soaps that are specifically designed to clean and protect these priceless rugs.

With nearly 30 years of rug washing and carpet cleaning experience, Superior Carpet & Rug Cleaning has created a one-of-a-kind, highly specialized, climate controlled facility that uses our proprietary processes to safely and correctly wash your family’s Oriental rugs.
