How to Care for Your Oriental Rug

Rotation – To ensure 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.

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

What Others Say

The carpet is old but it looks really good after cleaning.

Ernie was prompt and worked diligently and efficiently. I was amazed at how clean and new the Tile & Grout look. I thought they would never seem that pristine again.

I want to recommend Van’s Carpet Cleaning Service for both carpet and tile. A small flood discolored part ofc my wall-to-wall carpet while I was out of town. It was particularly noticeable because there had been a dirty floor mat on top of that part of the rug. I chose Van’s because they do real steam cleaning and their IICRC certification which Consumer Report recommends using while selecting a carpet cleaner. Even before I committed to use them, Ernie came out to estimate the cost and sprayed something to start working on the stain. Now it is almost gone. I doubt anyone else would know it was ever stained. The whole carpet looks fantastic even the darker frequently walked paths into the mbr and kitchen are gone. The carpet only been vacuumed and never professionally cleaned since we moved in almost 7 years ago so the paths were quite visible.

Recently had this company come in to remove some type of coating the original contractor had put on our tile. It was coming off leaving a terrible look on the floor. Vans came in, diagnosed the problem, determined the correct solution to remove the coating and did a thoroughly professional job.
Would highly recommend them. Service was excellent, price reasonable and staff was very courteous, timely and friendly.
