|The Ten Commandments of Rug Care and Maintenance
|What do you do with your valuables? You take care of them. Why not do the same thing to your Persian and
Oriental rugs? They are expensive and can last for many years and maybe for generations. The more you
take care of them, the better they look and the longer they last in your home.
Here at www.RugIdea.com we present you with some simple and general ideas for your rug protection, care
and maintenance. For more precise and detailed instructions, please contact us or consult a professional.
1- Depending on the foot traffic, you should rotate your rug and turn it around maybe once a year for even
and balanced wear.
2- Do not let your rug be exposed to direct sunlight. The colors will fade away through time. Use appropriate
curtains and draperies
3- Vacuum your rug regularly. Do not wait until it gets dirty. Dust and soil would damage the fiber of your rug
resulting in its shorter life. When you vacuum your rug, be careful with the fringe.
4- When something (liquid or …) is spilled or dropped on your rug, act quick before it sets in, absorbed or
dried. Scoop us the spill as much as you can and then use dry cloths, or paper towel to blotter and absorb
the liquid as much as you can.
5- Apply warm water to the stain and then blot again until the stain is removed from your Persian or Oriental
carpet and it is not visible any more. You may mix laundry detergent with warm water and apply it to the stain
if necessary. Use clean dry cloths or paper towel to blot the area well. You may use a hair dryer or a vacuum
cleaner to dry the washed area. Do not over use hair dryer. It will damage the rug.
6- If the stain is solid (chewing gum, wax and …) use a spoon to remove it and follow the step #4 above.
7- Below, you may find a table which can be used for stain removal.

Carpet life extended by annual cleaning
Vacuum often, blot up spills immediately

If you would stop to think how much abuse your carpet gets, perhaps you would have a little more compassion
for it. After all, the poor thing just lies there letting everyone walk all over it. And it never complains when you
track dirt on it or spill things all over it.
I'll bet you will get more loving years of service out of your carpet if you just show it you care. And the greatest
care you can give a carpet is to keep it clean.
Professional rug cleaning — once every year — is the best treat you could shower on your carpet. In
between, there is a lot you can do to maintain love and harmony between you and your floor covering. First of
all, vacuum regularly. You can't vacuum too often. When vacuuming, use a beater-bar that will raise the pile
as it goes across the floor so the trapped dirt will be vacuumed up.
If something spills onto the carpet, blot it up immediately. Blot is the key word — never rub, scrub or brush
because you might be grinding the stain into the rug rather than removing it, and this may even cause
damage to the carpet fibers. Blot and clean from the outside of the stain toward the center; this helps prevent
spreading. When using a cleaning agent, apply the cleanser to a clean, white cloth rather than directly to the
stained area to avoid saturating the carpet.
If the spill or stain is oil-based, you may need to purchase a dry cleaning solution available at grocery and
hardware stores. For non-oil-based spots, mix one teaspoon of non-bleaching dry powder laundry detergent
with two cups of water. Wet that clean, white towel with the mixture and go at it gently but diligently. Remove
the soapiness with clear, lukewarm water and absorb the excess moisture with an absorbent white towel.
Press down on the towel, or pile a few books on it, to help it absorb excess moisture that might be deep down.
Repeat the rinsing and blotting process until you are sure all the detergent is gone. Finally, place a dry white
towel over the area and weigh it down with books or other heavy objects for a couple of hours to finish
absorbing the last traces of moisture.
Is it a stubborn stain that just won't go away? Try this: mix one tablespoon of non-bleaching, non-sudsing
household ammonia with one cup of lukewarm water. Go through the rinsing, blotting process as described
above. Next, you need to neutralize the ammonia. Mix equal parts of white vinegar and water and apply this
solution using the same procedure as above.
A note of warning: If the stain is from coffee, tea or urine, do not use the ammonia/water cleaning method; the
acidity in the former liquids combined with ammonia will play havoc on your carpet fibers.
Remember, if you love your carpet, it will love you back.
