Caring for Your Oriental Rug this ThanksGiving

Rug Rotation – To insure even wear, 

your rug should be rotated once a year. Depending on the traffic,
the rotation may vary from six months to two years.

Vacuuming – Oriental rugs, like most carpeting, should be vacuumed on a regular
basis to remove dirt and restore life to the fibers. Be sure not to vacuum the
fringe with your beater bar! Use the end of a vacuum hose from a canister vacuum.

Padding – A quality pad used under your rug helps protect it from dirt, wear,
and slippage. Spot and Spill Procedures – Make sure that you safely and immediately
clean up spots and spills before they set.

a) First, soak up the excess liquid by
blotting with a clean absorbent material. Do not brush or rub the stain
b) Then spot-clean with a mild detergent-white vinegar-water solution.
Do-not over wet.
c) Rinse area thoroughly with water and a small amount of vinegar.
Avoid wetting the rug’s backing
d) Blot dry until most of the moisture has been absorbed
e) Allow to air dry. A fan or cool hair dryer can be used to hasten the drying process.
f) For stains that do not come out using these methods, ask our cleaning specialists at Van's Carpet Cleaning Svc 352.669.1540

What Others Say

Quick Response. Excellent

J Slagle, The Villages FL

I’ve lived in The Plantations for 9 years. I have had 4 or 5 carpet cleaners before and was never satisfied with other carpet cleaning companies. This is the only time my carpet looked new. I had to clean up after all the other cleaners.

I have known Ernie & Ivy for as long as they have been in business. Ernie has done my carpets and several couches and I’ve been very satisfied. Recently I had put my cat to sleep and anticipated getting 2 new kitties so I called Ivy and she promptly scheduled my carpet cleaning so it would be fresh for us and our new 2 “children”. Thanks Ernie & Ivy.

I recently hired Van’s Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Service to clean my living room furniture and some oriental rugs and was thrilled with their service. I was very impressed with their responsiveness and attention to every detail as well as the excellent quality of their work. Customer service is not just a marketing slogan at Van’s. They really deliver and I highly recommend them.

We are in possession of a Chinese needlepoint done on silk that was given to my husband's parents in l938 by husband's father's brother, Uncle Richard, who was a missionary priest with the Passionist Fathers. He served in China from 1935 until he became a prisoner when China fell to communism and was imprisoned for seven years before his release. Over the years, this needlepoint (16" w x 48" long and framed) suffered what appeared to be rather severe water damage running about 15 inches from the top down. This piece had been made especially for Uncle Richard and was something that my husband has loved since he was a small boy. We contacted Vans Carpet Cleaning and they made an appointment to stop just to look at it. With no promise...Ernie took it with him and promised there would be no charge if it could not be cleaned. WELL....Ernie just brought it back to us and it looks WONDERFUL!!! I cried...my husband was speechless!! Ernie tried very hard as he knew the story. I asked him how long it took and he told us three hours with Q-tips!!! The cost $149.99 plus $50.00 to preserve it to prevent any future damage. We would have paid so much more!! And we smile every day as we look at it proudly hanging!! THANK YOU VANS CARPET CLEANING!!!
