Handmade rugs and antique rugs, such as Oriental and Persian ones, cannot be cleaned like ordinary area rugs. Pressure, chemicals, and too much heat or steam will ruin the fibers, damage any fringe on the edges, and possibly shrink the rug. Wool can become frayed, loose color, or have weaving loosen if handled improperly. Authentic handmade rugs are an investment and need to be washed and cleaned by hand. Stain removal is an art form developed by craftsman and restoration experts. One washing can strip a rug if its beauty and its value. Do not take that risk by attempting to clean the rug yourself.
