How to dry clean rugs? Don’t !

Is dry cleaning a fine rug a good idea or not? “Absolutely not”says Mr. Ben Behnam of Behnam Rugs. Fine rugs need to be fully handwashed with natural solutions and never with dry cleaning fluid, foam, chemical compounds or granules on the surface. Dry cleaning methods  were never meant for fine natural fiber rugs.  If you rug is washed  correctly and all the way through it will stay clean for years.

Mold on Rug, Wall and Fruit


 You may think mold will never happen to your rug but it could be growing right now, please check your rugs!

There are numerous ways that your Persian rug can become a host to a variety of fungi, bacteria, mycobacteria and actinomycetes molds if not monitored.

Due to absorbency of water and moisture in wool rugs over time if there is a small and slow water leak from plumbing,  air conditioning,  dripping sprinkler system  or  potted plant’s sitting near or on the rug that has been over watered all of these will create an environment for mold. As mold grows it becomes destructive and creates rotting on the foundation of your rug and surrounding areas such as flooring, walls and furniture.

Mold can cause illness due to water damage for more information:

When you have your rug professionally washed and cleaned at Behnam Rugs Persian Rug Cleaner for mold issues we will wash it with our special live bacteria enzyme plus wash with light acidic vinegar  to eliminate the mold and contaminants. We will also treat it to natural direct ultraviolet sunshine to kill anything left and remove any smells your rugs may have.

 You may think mold will never happen to your rug but it could be growing right now, make sure you check on your rugs you are using and the ones in storage.

Behnam Rugs Persian Rug Cleaner will uninstall your rug carefully to make sure it stays intact, evaluate it and report to you what special wash it needs. If water damage is discovered in the early stages many rugs only need a proper wash and dry out in the ultraviolet sunshine to be restored this is not carpet cleaning.

Cold Days and Persian Rugs


Cold Days and Persian Rugs go together just like all the tips in Freshome online magazine article:

10 Wise Ways To Save On Winter Home Heating by Wendy  Link at end of this blog.

Here is an excerpt from the original article:

Area Rugs

Area rugs are often used as a design element in a room; they add color and style while unifying a space. During the cold winter months, they serve another important function: Rugs add a layer of insulation to the floor, trapping cool air underneath and keep it from seeping up and cooling the room. The warmth of the rug will keep your feet toasty, too.

The best way to hold down your heating costs is to heat your home efficiently while keeping the cold out. Adequate insulation in the attic, heavy window treatments and an extra rug on the floor will help to keep a room warm. Keep the warm air in, moderate the temperature and before long you’ll realize the savings.

Take that savings and venture somewhere warm or invest in something special. Either option is better than paying high heating costs. What would you do with the money you save?

Mr. Ben “Behnam” Tavakolian of Behnam Rugs says warm those cold days up and your home with a Persian Rug

Persian rugs not only make your room more cozy and warm but they will also add warm colors to your living environment. At the end of a long work day walking barefoot on rugs will give a nice massage to your feet as well.

When you work with Behnam Rugs we always give free tips on how to keep your rugs looking good and lasting for generations one tip is,  if you have a good rug and you use it all year-round please make sure to rotate your position of rug once a year for a more even wear.

When it is time to have your rugs refreshed let Behnam Rugs Persian Rug Cleaner fully hand-wash your fine rugs every 4 to 5 years to preserve the beauty of all your rug investment.
