Frequently Asked Questions about Antique Oriental Rug Cleaning:
When Should I Clean My Oriental Rug?
To clean or not to clean: that is the question and an issue that plagues rug owners year after year. Fortunately, the new year is a particularly good time to check the condition of household carpets and to see if they need to be cleaned. Perpetual foot traffic, dirt, dust and stains from kids, pets, and holiday guests might spell doom for valuable vintage and antique carpets.
Regular cleaning is an essential part of protecting investment pieces and treating carpets with respect. The natural fibers used to create carpets have a number of remarkable characteristics. Each material requires specialized cleaning procedures to release dirt and return the fibers to a naturally clean state without compromising the stability and structure. When it comes to cleaning antique Oriental rugs, it simply doesn’t pay to wait. Depending on traffic and household conditions, area rugs should be cleaned every three to seven years.
Natural fibers and many dyes react to different substances and temperatures. That’s why it’s important to select an experienced antique rug cleaning service that can create a specially tailored process for cleaning your antique rugs, family heirlooms and investment pieces. Have a look at these common signs that a rug needs to be cleaned.
How often should I have my antique Persian rugs cleaned?
As a general rule, antique Persian rugs should be cleaned every three to five years depending on the level of traffic they receive.
What goes in to cleaning a rug?
Factors that affect how your rug will be cleaned include size, geographic origin, construction techniques, fiber content, age and dyes. In most cases, antique rugs will be physically dusted to remove abrasive grit and debris trapped deep in the carpet pile. Then aqueous cleansing agents are applied to remove soil attached to the natural fibers that dulls the color and luminous sheen. Our antique rug cleaning experts are trained to clean using the most appropriate methods. If necessary, oxygen-based treatments can be employed to remove oxidation that causes yellowing in white and ivory rugs.
When necessary, we stabilize weak areas and employ protective cloths to minimize wear and unnecessary friction. Our rug cleaning experts are attentive to the special needs of every unique carpet.
After cleaning antique Oriental rugs and removing the cleansing agents and excess water, rugs are placed in a climate-controlled drying room. There, air warm, dry air circulates to ensure that even the thickest pile carpets dry quickly and thoroughly.

What if My Rug Has Stains?
Stains are probably the most obvious sign that a rug should be cleaned. Aside from gently blotting spills, leave stain-removal work to the rug cleaning pros. Stains tend to set in and get worked into the fibers as they dry or are rubbed. It’s also important to note that bugs, moths and rot are more likely to affect dirty rugs, including those in storage.
What is The Carpet “Touch Test”?
The touch test is a simple and effective way to gauge the level of soiling. Simply rub the pile with an open hand going with the direction of the grain. If your hand feels dirty or excessively sticky, the rug might need to be cleaned.
Exploring What is Under the Carpet?
Inspecting the carpet pad and floor underneath can give you a good idea of overall cleanliness. Fine dust-like micro-particles on the floor are an indication that a rug needs to be washed. Smaller particles may seem soft and powdery, but they’re actually glass-like bits of silica that are the most damaging.
Why Should I Be Checking the Rug’s Pile and Foundation?
A visual examination of the pile and under-structure reveals deposits of dirt that are abrading the rug’s foundation. Gently spread the pile apart to look for dirt at the base of the knots (and along the warp and weft). Because typical cleaning methods cannot remove these deeply embedded particles, harmonic vibration equipment is the safest and most effective tool for cleaning antique rugs and protecting their value.
