When you purchase a beautiful, oriental rug, you want it to last for as long as possible. However, you’ll need to properly maintain your oriental rug in order for that to happen. Here we’ve provided some helpful tips on how to maintain an oriental rug to ensure it lasts:
Rotate your rug regularly
Rotating your rug can help distribute wear, especially if your rug is in a high-traffic area. As such, your rug will have a more uniform look which will maintain both is looks and value. Some people say you can rotate your rug once every one to two years, but it’s better to rotate it every 6 months for the best results.
Keep it away from sunlight
Sunlight can cause the dye in your rug to fade. Some fading is unavoidable, but sunlight will certainly worsen it. As such, you’ll want to keep your rug away from direct sunlight. Keep it out of notoriously sunny rooms or areas of your floor that receive frequently sunlight.
Keep it clean
If spills are left untreated, then stains will quickly develop on your oriental rug. You need to immediately spot clean to prevent this from happening. Clean the area up and then use water to wash the rest out. Do not use soap, bleach, or other cleaning products as these can damage the fibers in your oriental rug.
In addition to spot cleaning, you’ll want to regularly vacuum your rug. Doing so will get rid of dirt and prevent the fibers in your rug from getting packed down.
