How to Protect Your Rugs

Did your dog or cat (or any other pets!) have an accident on your rug? Call us right away for the best chance at odor removal. Just like rugs, every odor and treatment option is different.

We’ll examine your rug, find out what works best, and try to make it like nothing happened.

Some bugs love your rugs as much as you do! Moths and carpet beetles can eat away at your natural fiber rugs, ruining your fine antique or any other rug. Contact us if you think your rugs might be infested.

We’ll get rid of the infestation and protect your rugs against future invaders.

Protect your rugs after cleaning with a stain guard application. Once your rugs have been cleaned, we can apply a protector to help reduce the chance you’ll end up with a permanent stain. Stain guard, safe for all fiber types, coats the fibers of your rugs to block a spill from absorbing into the fibers of your rug right away. It’ll also make your rug easier to clean in the future so those unsightly traffic areas can be removed if its only soiling and not wear.

Professionals clean oriental rugs by using the various steps in their process. Professional cleaning starts with a dusting/vacuuming to release dry embedded soil, once the dirt is removed and the rug is inspected with good lighting, all spots and stains are pre-treated to break down the staining. The rug is then evenly washed with rug shampoo and soft brushes. The soap and soil is flushed out of the rug with cold water. Once the water is extracted and the rug is 80% dry, it is groomed with soft brushes and hung in a special drying room where industrial equipment and fans quickly make the rug 100% dry. After this process is complete, a certified rug cleaning techician performs a quality inspection, performs the final detailing, and packages the rug for delivery or self-pickup.

Without the right equipment, beating a rug clean can be very difficult. If the rug is too large to shake out the dirt, hang the rug face down on a fence or railing outside and hit the backside of the rug with a broom several times until the dirt stops falling. Another method you could use is to lay the rug face down on a hard surface and vacuum the back several times. In some cases, the vacuum has enough vibration to shake loose the embedded soil. At Ayoub N&H, our rug duster was designed to remove all the dry soil with several rotating paddles and brushes, while simultaneously vacuuming the dirt away.

Although you can clean oriental rugs at home, it is not the most thorough and can lead to bigger problems. If not properly done, the colors in the oriental rug can bleed and transfer to other parts of the rug and even your floor! Oriental rugs can also shrink and become warped if cleaned at home. At Ayoub N&H, we provide free pickup and delivery of oriental rugs or self-drop off at one of our locations in Maryland.

Depending on where your rug is located in your home, and how much foot traffic it gets, it is recommended to clean your oriental rugs at least once per year. If you have pets, you may want to consider having them professionally cleaned more frequently.
