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

Ivy and Ernie VanGorder of Van's Carpet Cleaning are the best! We've used their service for both carpet and upholstery cleaning for four years. Their attention to detail is top notch and their follow-up calls to guarantee our satisfaction is an outstanding feature of their service. Their concern for what's going on in our lives is much appreciated, such as the passing of beloved pets and all that comes with a new puppy.


Ernie is extremely knowledgeable and we have sought his advice on ways to maintain our carpet but also what might be a good replacement carpet when the time comes. I have recommended them and will continue to sing their praises.
Bless you Ivy and Ernie!!!
