Oriental rugs are generally made of wool and are extremely durable and consistently outperform other materials. Unlike other fibers, wool is much more resilient, cleans better and stays clean longer.
How Often to Clean and Oriental Rug
Proper cleaning brings out the richness of color and softness of wool. Depending on the amount of traffic, a professional washing is recommended every one to three years for the cleaning of your oriental rug.
How Often to Rotate an Oriental Rug
To ensure even wear, your rug should be rotated once a year.
How Often to Vacuum an Oriental Rug
Oriental rugs, like most carpeting, should be vacuumed on a regular basis to remove dirt and restore life to the fibers. Be sure not to vacuum the fringe.
A quality pad used under your rug helps protect it from dirt, wear and slippage.
