Persian Rug Cleaning

Rug Cleaning is an essential part of keeping your Persian Rugs in pristine condition. Not only will it remove any dirt or stains that have built up over time, but it will also help to preserve the fibers and keep the colors vibrant. The most important thing to remember when cleaning a Persian Rug is to use gentle, natural products. Harsh chemicals can damage delicate fibers, and inadequate water temperature can cause the colors to fade. At Mehraban we are equipped with special soap and the right technique to bring your Persian Rugs back to life. 

There are a few different ways to clean a luxury rug, and the best method will depend on the materials and construction of the rug as well as the age. If the rug is made of delicate materials, it may need to be dry-cleaned. However, if the rug is made of sturdier fibers, it can be shampooed with a gentle detergent. Persian rug hand washing is the best way to clean delicate rugs, and it should be done by a professional Persian rug cleaner. The first step is to gently vacuum the rug to remove any dirt or dust. Next comes pre-treating the rug with a solution that will loosen the dirt and grime. The rug is soaked in a mild soap solution and then rinsed several times. After the rinse cycle is complete, the rug is hung up to dry, and then brushed to restore its softness and luster. Rug hand washing is a time-consuming process, but machine washing can damage delicate fibers and colors and cause chemical damage or color transfer. If you have an Oriental or Persian rug that needs to be cleaned, our team of cleaners has the experience and knowledge to properly care for your rug.

Rug inspection before cleaning

A detailed rug damage inspection should be carried out before any rug hand-washing process is started. Any pre-existing damages could become exacerbated during the rug hand-washing process, and it is important to understand the condition of the rug before proceeding. Once the rug inspection is complete, a decision can be made as to whether rug hand washing is the best course of action or if another rug repair method would be more appropriate. In any case, proceeding with caution is always advised when working with delicate fabrics such as Persian rugs.
