How to Take Care of Your Antique Rug

  1. Have your rug professionally cleaned and wrapped before storing it in a climate-controlled area. The Persian Carpet provides on-site carpet cleaning in Durham, NC.
  2. Rotate your rug to ensure even wear or sun fading, or install UV-blocking window films.
  3. Vacuum your carpet regularly using the suction attachment, and not the beater brush, as it can damage your rug.
  4. Remove stains as soon as possible, using only club soda and a clean bath cloth or towel. Cleaning agents can affect the dyes and change the color of your rug.
  5. Place a non-skid rug pad under your oriental rug, as it promotes air exchange between your carpet and floor.
