Rug is a mat-like material used to cover room floors to enhance the beauty of the room, but it is not attached permanently with the floor. Among all rugs, I always like to buy a red rug or red oriental rugs because of their outstanding aristocracy.
A genuine oriental rug is a handmade carpet that is either knotted with pile or woven without pile. Oriental-design rugs made by machine, made through hand-crafting or any method other than hand-knotting or hand-weaving are not considered authentic oriental rugs.
When you buy any oriental rugs or large area rugs, you know, at that time they possess charming beauty. To many people oriental rugs are the symbol of their status and they maintain the stylishness and beauty of every room of their house.
But, the shiny appearance of these rugs does not last long, they need to be cleaned to retrieve their bright appearance.
The tools you will be need are a Vacuum, Rug beater, Mild rug shampoo, Soft and long bristled brush, Garden hose, and Rubber window squeegee.
If you want to clean your oriental rugs you will need some tools, and then you have to follow a number of steps.
Vacuum your rug on both sides while still in its original location. Then hang your rug and beat out any remaining dirt and dust.
Move your oriental rug to a clean, flat space for washing. A garage floor, clean driveway or patio work well.
Wet down your rug with cool water, then test a small area for color run with an extremely mild rug shampoo. If colors don’t run, shampoo your entire rug, front and back, using a soft, long-bristled brush.
Brush shampoo in softly with the grain of the rug pile. Make sure you completely wet the nap with your soapy water.
Clean your rug’s fringes. Using a soft brush and your soapy water, lightly brush your fringe away from the rug. Repeat until clean.
Rinse your oriental rug with a hose running cool water. Make sure you completely rinse out all shampoo from the front, back and fringes.
Remove standing water from your rug using a clean rubber window squeegee. Run the squeegee along the rug’s grain until you’ve removed all excess water. Lay flat to dry.
Oriental rug cleaners can be found in most large US cities.
