  • How Often Do I Clean My Rug?

    Posted by

    A common question that rug owners and collectors ask us is, “How often should I clean my Oriental rug?”  Many factors can determine how frequently to have your area rugs professionally cleaned, but a great starting point is this:

    • Dusting / Dry Soil Removal – Recommended every 6-12 months
    • Maintenance Cleaning – Recommended every 12-18 months
    • Deep Cleaning – Recommended every 2-3 years
    • Restorative Cleaning – Recommended upon severe contamination

    Plenty of factors help to determine how often you should clean your area rugs, such as:

    1. Placement & Traffic – Where is the rug located? If it’s tucked away in a rarely used guestroom, you might not need to have it professionally cleaned as frequently as that timeline suggests.  Or, if it’s right at the entrance to your house, and your family and guests track dirt and sand and debris onto it every day, you’ll need to have it cleaned more frequently than just once every year or year and a half, as the timeline suggests.
    2. Pets & Kids – Who else lives in your home? If you have pets that shed fur or perhaps aren’t completely housebroken yet, or if you have young kids that are prone to spilling snacks or creating other messes, you’ll need to have your rug cleaned more frequently in order to keep it in good repair and looking great.
    3. Style & Construction – Sometimes even the construction of your rug can determine how frequently you need to have it professionally cleaned. For example, if you have a rug with very low pile, you may be able to effectively keep it very clean with routine vacuuming, whereas if your rug has very dense silk fibers, though routine vacuuming will help keep it in good shape, professional dusting and cleaning will be needed routinely.

    Your rug is an investment and a beautiful element to your home’s ambiance and décor, and one of the best ways to ensure it stays in great shape for you to enjoy for years is to schedule routine cleaning with a highly rated professional rug cleaning company in your area.
