Care for Your Rug at Home

Rug Care No-Nos

Caring for your rug at home is an important step in keeping your priceless handmade Persian rugs and handmade Oriental rugs healthy for many years. Consider Persian and Oriental rugs as your personal fine art gallery. To care for these rugs you need to know the following:

Persian handmade rugs come in different styles, patterns, and materials, such as a wool pile over a cotton foundation; wool and silk pile over a cotton foundation; silk and wool over a wool foundation; and silk pile over a silk foundation.

If you are interested in learning about any one of these combinations, please stop by our showroom. If you are interested in the difference between natural silk rugs and man-made silk rugs or viscose rayon silk rugs, give us a call at (972) 733-0400.

Simple Home Rug Care

Simple everyday home rug care can increase the health of your rug. When you spill food and liquids on your fine rugs, quickly remove the dry debris and dab the liquid gently off your rug. If your pet spoiled your rug, call Behnam Rugs immediately for professional rug cleaning, and we will perform an enzyme wash on your rugs.

These elegant rugs need to undergo rug cleaning and washing. Behnam Rugs is an expert in this field.

All rugs must have padding under them. Not only will your rug not slip, but pads also prevent color transfer to underlying surfaces in case of spot or stain on the rug, whether your rug is on the hard floor, tile, or wall-to-wall-carpet.  Padding prevents shifting and wrinkling as well as working to keep you safe from falls. Even if your rug is on wall-to-wall carpet, it needs padding.

Things NOT to DO to Your Rug at Home:

  1. Do Not Rub Stains into Your Rug
  2. Do Not Vacuum with Beater Bar or Beater Brush
  3. Do Not Use Spot Removers
  4. Do Not Use Harsh Detergents
  5. Do Not Place Rug in Direct Heat
