    Do you have a beautiful Oriental rug and you're wondering how to keep it looking its best? It can be a challenge to make sure it keeps its appearance and value. There are some easy tips for keeping it clean, however. Take a look.

    The Vacuum Is Your Friend

    Nothing is worse for an Oriental rug than dirt and dust. These pollutants work their way down into the fibers of the carpet and not only make it look and feel dirty, but can actually start to break down the fibers themselves. When this happens, the rug can weaken and stretch or wear out in spots, causing an uneven appearance. Regular vacuuming can help prevent this breakdown by keeping the dirt and debris out of the rug.

    Don't Let Spills Take Hold

    If something spills on your Oriental rug, be quick about cleaning it up. Use a soft cloth to absorb any liquid and don't scrub at it with any detergent. Warm water and mild soap should get up most stains. But be careful with what products you use! You don't want to damage the material or cause discoloration.

    Professional Cleaning Is a Must

    Just like your carpets need regular cleaning, so do your Oriental rugs. Don't rent a steam cleaner, however, and expect good results. The only way to clean Oriental rugs is with a professional who knows what products and tools will not only get it clean and looking great, but also what products and tools will not cause any damage to your rugs.

    Don't fret about your Oriental rugs. Follow some simple tips to keep them clean; then schedule Whitehall Carpet Cleaners for professional Oriental rug cleaning.
