      How Do You Prevent Your Persian Rug From Damage?

      A rug adds warmth and beauty to any home-so protect that beautiful rug of yours from damage. The difference between a rug and a carpet is that a carpet is attached to the floor, as in wall-to-wall carpeting; while a rug is usually used as an accent piece. Rugs can be handmade, contemporary or antique. Protect your investment and stop the damage before it starts, in other words care your Persian rug.

      Steps * Persian Rug Care *

      1Step One

      First, for your Persian rug care, Stop sun damage and keep your rug out of direct sunlight. Sunlight damages the rug by causing it to fade or become lighter where the sun hits it. This is especially true of antique rugs or those with natural substances used for colors.

      2Step Two

      Second, for your Persian rug care , Rotate your rug frequently if it is in the direct sun; rotate at least once a month. The rug will fade, but it will be uniform in color. If your rug is not in direct sunlight, rotate it at least four times a year. A good way to remember to rotate your rug is the change of seasons.

      3Step Three

      Third for your Persian rug care , Vary the pathways on your Persian rug. When furniture is placed on the rug, it creates a natural pathway that is used frequently. Move the furniture on the rug so walkways are changed. This will stop the damage of a wear pattern in just one place.

      4Step Four

      Fourth, For your Persian rug care , Flip the rug end over end to straighten any twisted fringe. Do not comb the fringe as the natural fibers can become damaged. Flipping the rug end over end is done by grabbing one end of the carpet and walking it to the other end. The rug will then be upside down and the fringe will straighten out. Shake the rug gently to help straighten fringe.

      5Step Five

      Fifth, for your Persian rug care , Vacuum your rug regularly to keep it clean. Vacuuming will also keep the natural fibers from becoming packed down. If you have an old, antique or expensive rug you may want to turn off the beater bar of your vacuum. The beater bar can grab loose fibers, which can cause a run or tear. If you have a threadbare spot on the rug, a beater bar can also make the damage worse.

      6Step Six

      Sixth, for your Persian rug care , clean all spills immediately. Do not use soap or bleach on your valuable Persian rug to clean it. First, absorb the spill with paper towels by gently daubing it from the end of the spill towards the center; this will keep the spill from spreading. Place paper towels under the spill to stop further damage to the backing. Use only water to clean spills on a valuable or antique Persian rug ; call a professional who has experience if the stain cannot be removed.


      How Do You Care for Persian Antique Rugs?

      Genuine, handmade rugs require special care and cleaning to maintain their beauty, originality, quality and worth. This is particularly true with antique Oriental rugs, which are extremely susceptible to damage by vacuuming and other cleaning methods. By vacuuming your Oriental rug carefully following these steps, you preserve its appearance and longevity.

      1Step One

      Place a plastic carpet pad or cushion underneath your antique rug. Carpet pads help protect antique rugs from wear, tear and fading.

      2Step Two

      Vacuum both sides of your antique rug. Push and pull the vacuum over every spot on the antique rug except its fringes. Make sure you use enough vacuum force to clean the rug but not so much that the machine damages the rug. If you must use a beater brush on your antique rug, adjust it so that it has as little contact with the rug as possible.

      3Step Three

      Clean up accidental spills as soon as they occur. Most spills can be handled with a spotless Turkish towel, club soda and some blotting.

      4Step Four

      Repair your antique rug as necessary. Insects like moths and carpet beetles pose a threat to an antique rug's appearance as much as common wear and tear does. If an antique rug shows signs of insect damage or infestation, take the rug in for an immediate deep-cleaning and spray your home for any remaining insects while it is being cleaned.

      5Step Five

      Turn over your antique rug every year. Exposing both sides to traffic and use helps keep your antique rug viable longer. Use wear and daylight exposure as guides to help you determine when to turn over your rug; if your antique rug undergoes more wear and daylight exposure than usual, consider turning it over sooner.

      6Step Six

      Exercise caution when allowing pets or small children around an antique rug. Pets should be house trained and children's activities should be monitored to avoid accidental damage.

      7Step Seven

      Keep your antique rug dry. Moisture and wetness can permanently damage a rug. If your rug gets wet, take immediate action to dry the rug with a fan or a wet vacuum. Reduce water threats around your antique rug. Move drinks and plant pots away from antique rugs and lay your antique rug away from plumbing pipes.
