Handle With Care

Unlike carpets, which are made from synthetic materials, oriental rugs are typically woven from wool, silk, or other types of delicate fabrics and require special care. To ensure that they remain vibrant over time, River City Rug Cleaning recommends that you have your rug (or rugs) cleaned every one to two years. Of course, they might need to be cleaned more frequently if you have pets or if the rug is in a high-traffic area.

Experienced Cleaners

Specializing in fine textiles, River City Rug Cleaning’s technicians possess the knowledge and expertise to thoroughly clean oriental rugs without damaging them. The cleaning products they use are designed specifically for rug cleaning and are selected based on the material and size of the piece. 

The cleaning process begins with an inspection for any pre-existing issues, which may include: 

  • Pet urine spots
  • Stains
  • Odors
  • Color bleed
  • Fringe damage
  • Excessive wear
  • Backing breakdown 

And for the record, they can fix all of it; should River City Rug Cleaning’s technicians discover anything that cannot be addressed with a basic clean, they will notify you with the updated cost. If you’re fine with the new price, the technicians will proceed to hand-clean and dust the rug while performing the approved maintenance services.

Protecting Your Rugs

If you want additional protection for your oriental rug, you can request MicroSeal Fabric Protection, which, as the name implies, will protect the fabric from fading, spills, and dirt. This odorless agent is non-toxic, hypoallergenic, and biodegradable, and any rug it is applied to will be ready for daily use once it is dry to the touch. River City Rug Cleaning says that MicroSeal will withstand up to ten professional cleanings before it needs to be reapplied. 

For added safety, the company can also provide you with a non-slip rug pad that can be customized to fit rugs of any size. These pads are pet-proof and will increase airflow beneath the rug, discouraging mold, mildew, and bacteria growth. If you want to extend the life of your pieces, this is an excellent option to consider, as proper pads will prevent rugs from wrinkling. They’ll save the rug backing too!

Oriental rugs are just as much an investment as they are beautiful furnishings. Trust the experts at River City Rug Cleaning with that investment, and you’ll be rewarded with a piece of art that lasts for many more years to come.
