If there was a flood in your home and your oriental rug is soaking wet – don’t panic! There is a way to save it – you just need to react quickly. Put the wet carpet somewhere dry and warm. The best thing is to hang or lay it in your backyard. If the rug is soaking-wet, use a squeegee to push out as much water from it as possible before leaving it dry. Just remember – don’t place the carpet under the direct sunlight for more than a couple of days, because it’s bright colours will fade. If the weather outside is too cold, or rainy you can dry the rug at home using heaters and fans.
Regular vacuuming is a sure way to keep dirt and dust out of your carpet. No matter what problem you’re facing, most oriental rugs can be cleaned and saved. However, you should know, that some original oriental carpets are dyed with natural paints and there’s a risk of colour-bleed.
