Oriental rug care and cleaning tips
Your Oriental rug can last for generations with the right care and maintenance. Below are a few tips to help you keep your oriental rug looking beautiful:
*Rotate your rug.
You do this to try to avoid excessive wear in any one area. It's a good idea to rotate your rug every couple of months.
*Avoid direct sunlight.
Consider where you place your Persian rug. Placing your rug in direct sunlight will likely cause the dyes to fade.
Vacuuming your rug will not only remove the dirt and debris of everyday use but will keep the rug fibers from getting matted. If you are concerned about your vacuum damaging your carpet, give us a call so we can explain the best settings for your vacuum.
In the event of an accident, immediately attempt to blot all the liquid with a cloth or paper towel. You can try to loosen the stain with a little club soda, if necessary. The best thing to do is call us immediately so we can save your investment.
The difference between Oriental and Persian Rugs
At first glance it may be impossible to the untrained eye to distinguish between Oriental and Persian rugs however there are some differences. Below are some ways you can distinguish between the two:
1. Country of origin
This may seem simple but true Persian rugs come specifically from Iran and some small tribal areas of Pakistan. Oriental rugs come from Turkey, India, Egypt, Tibet and of course China.
Both rugs are hand knotted on looms. Oriental rugs are woven using a symmetrical Ghiordes knot. Persian rugs are woven using asymmetrical Senneh knots. The Sennah knots are considered to be more precise.
The process of hand washing a rug creates a big difference between Oriental and Persian Rugs. Persian rug makers use techniques going back centuries and are one of the reasons that Persian rugs are thought to be the softest in all the world.
