Persian rugs can be extremely expensive, so it is important they are properly maintained. Without proper maintenance, these rugs can begin to break down and lose their vibrancy. Unfortunately, some cleaning techniques can ruin Persian rugs and should be avoided. With these tips, homeowners can learn more on how to care for their Persian Rug in Manhattan so they can prolong its life and keep it looking beautiful.
These steps should be taken to properly clean a Persian rug:
* Before attempting to clean any stains, it is important the rug is properly vacuumed. Vacuuming should be done on the lowest pile setting to ensure no damage occurs. Both sides should be carefully vacuumed to ensure the loose dirt is removed so the rug can be properly cleaned. This should be done thoroughly to remove as much of the embedded dirt as possible.
* The rug then needs to be spot cleaned to remove any obvious stains. It is important the homeowner works to remove the stain with a cleaner that is specially made for Persian Rug in Manhattan. The cleaner should be tested on an inconspicuous area of the rug to ensure no color fading or damage will occur. The stain should be carefully rinsed and blotted to remove any cleaner or stain residue, so the stain does not continue to cause damage.
* Persian rugs can be shampooed if the right equipment is used. Homeowners may find a handheld shampooer is more effective at gently cleaning their rug so they can properly control the pressure being applied to the fibers. The fringes of the rug will need to be hand washed with a gentle soap, so they do not become tangled and frazzled.
* Once the rug has been cleaned and dried, a special brush can be used to restore the pile. This should be done gently so as not to damage any of the fibers.
