Persian Rug Care
Persia is known as Iran these days, and essentially a Persian rug is made in Iran. Rugs made in India, Turkey or Afghanistan for instance, are referred to as Oriental rug. True, in the 21st century, we’re seeing many fake Persian rugs – rugs made with inferior materials. They look like the real deal but they’re not, and you’ll quickly discover this when you see deterioration setting in far sooner than you should.
With Good Care, Persian Rugs Improve with Age
If your Persian rug is well cared for, it will give you decades of pleasure. Some Persian rug owners will even tell you that their Persian rugs are like a good wine – they just get better with age. Even the best Persian rugs will need good care, and gentle vacuuming and brushing is the most basic care you can provide for your rug.
Many people don’t see the grit that actually becomes embedded in the pile. The reason this isn’t good is because those rough particles wear away the fibers of your rug with the passing years.
Another way to care for your Persian rug is to turn it every few months or so. If your Persian is in a sunny spot or in a high foot traffic area, turning it will ensure equal distribution of sunlight and foot traffic. This simply eliminates uneven fading or wearing down of the pile.
Sometimes your beautiful Persian rug could become soaked. The geyser bursts or your property is flooded. This is when there is the danger of rug colors running and the rug even shrinking. It could mean a rug that has such an awful smell you wonder if it will ever be usable again.
Moth eaten rugs, water damage, spills and stains, tears and odors – most times the best solution to ensuring a beautiful rug is to simply hand it in to professional rug cleaners.
