Oriental and Persian Area Rug Care In SW Florida

Comprehensive Guide to Rug Care for Oriental and Persian Rug Owners in SW Florida

Oriental and Persian rugs are decorative and may be heavily used in our homes and offices. They withstand wear from foot traffic and spills, and our pets enjoy their comfort. In SW Florida, maintaining these rugs is essential due to local environmental challenges like humidity, sand, and indoor allergens.

Why Professional Rug Cleaning by Oriental Rug Salon Is Recommended

Despite regular home care, rugs can accumulate significant amounts of unseen dirt, dust, pollen, pet dander, and other contaminants. These allergens not only dull the appearance of your rugs but can also affect your health and homes indoor air quality. While vacuuming can remove surface soil, it’s important to note that it’s ineffective in extracting the deeper grit and debris embedded within the rug fibers. Moreover, vacuuming cannot eliminate oils, stains, spills, and pet urine.

Did you happen to know? Many homeowners don’t realize the extent of dirt in their rugs until they see the striking difference following a professional cleaning.

Benefits of Professional Oriental and Persian Area Rug Cleaning:

Deep Cleaning: Rugs can accumulate pounds of dirt before they even appear dirty, hiding dust and allergens effectively. An 8X10 wool area rug can hold up to eight pounds of soil and allergens even after standard vacuuming. Wool fibers have scales that trap dirt, dander, pollen, and dust mites.

At Oriental Rug Salon, we take pride in our meticulous rug cleaning process. Each rug undergoes thorough dusting, receiving over 40,000 harmonic vibrations per minute. This process safely dislodges years of deep-set dirt, sand, pollen, dust mites, and other allergens beyond the reach of even the most powerful vacuum systems, ensuring a truly deep clean for your rugs.

Extended Rug Life: Accumulated dirt and sand have jagged edges that cut like knives against wool and silk fibers. This can cause rug fibers to split, leading to worn areas, traffic lanes, and irreversible damage. Oriental Rug Salon’s professional cleaning removes these harmful particles, preserving your rugs’ integrity, value, and beauty.

Healthier Environment: Removing embedded particles from your area rugs can significantly improve indoor air quality, particularly for families with children, the elderly, or those with compromised immune systems.

Addressing Stains and Pet Accidents on Oriental and Persian Area Rugs

Rugs in SW Florida are prone to spills and stains due to our region’s casual, indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Immediate spot cleaning is essential, but professional attention is required for deep-set stains and issues like pet urine, which can damage rug fibers and cause dye migration issues.

Thorough Cleaning: Techniques like rotary shampooing and advanced rinsing systems ensure deep cleansing without damaging the rugs.

Specialized Drying: Controlled drying environments prevent moisture-related issues, crucial in Florida’s humid climate.
