Get a corner of the rug and kick the back of it. If a large cloud of dirt comes flying out of the pile, then the rug is definitely dirty and is in need of a good cleaning. If there are some dust and wool fibers, but not of an excessively large amount, then that's perfectly normal. Again, Kneel on the rug and rub with the palm of your hand for about 5 to 10 seconds. If your hand is dirty, then the rug needs cleaning. Regular cleanings are essential to keep Persian rugs looking their best.
Along with these methods, always keep an eye on the following matters to know when to call for a professional rug cleaning service:
These are some of the most common spills you can experience with rugs, urine being the most severe. It can cause the colour to run in the rug and the odor can be difficult to get rid of or disguise. Chemically, urine makes the foundation harder and less supple, and worst of all, the presence of pet urine can attract moths. If there are repeated wettings for the rug, the foundation can loosen and the rug could crack or break when gently rolled or folded.
For food spills, it's easier to deal with if you clean it up promptly before the spill is even allowed to completely dry on the rug. Blot up as much liquid as you can with either paper towels or a clean cloth, and then try to rinse out as much as you can.
When a pet regurgitates on a rug, then you're looking at a more complicated job. It truly depends on the food, but the mixture can work as a dilute dye in order to stain the pile with a completely different hue.
Clean up the area immediately and pick up as many foreign materials as you can with paper towels or clean cloths. If necessary, you can use a dustpan to scrape up the rest, but make sure not to manipulate it too much- this can just lead to the stain spreading even more.
Whatever happens, don't clean with bleach on Persian rugs, as this can remove the original color. And, always keep your outdoor shoes, outside.
