How to Keep Your Oriental Rug Clean During the Winter

December 13, 2019

Fine, hand-woven and expensive oriental rugs provide your home with elements of décor and serve as a pleasing aesthetic focal point for any room. Sometimes they even carry cultural or family significance and add a sense of belonging to your home. These oriental rugs can be tough to maintain, especially during the winter months. The cleanliness and crispness are often tainted by footprints from children and pets running around your home. Your oriental rug is the perfect place for snow, dirt, and mud to accumulate. Follow these simple tips to keep your oriental rug clean during the cold winter months!

Place Welcome Mats in Front of Your Doors

Oriental rugs can be tough to maintain, especially during the winter months.

This is an effortless, affordable, and quick way to decrease the amount of dirt that enters your home. Walk-off Mats are not just for decoration. They’re the first line of defense for maintaining your carpets, floors, and oriental rugs from tracked-in messes. Many particles, including tar, pesticides, bacteria, and snowmelt can make their way into your home on the bottom of your shoes, but a good quality mat can soak up most of the waste before someone steps through the door.

Place a Boot Tray by the Entryways

A more effective way to keep your oriental rug clean is to remove any shoes before entering the house. In many places across the globe, this is a common practice. Place a boot tray outside or right inside the door to encourage your guests to remove their shoes. This tray will keep footwear in a specific spot, rather than spread throughout your home. It can also catch any dirt or snow in one area, making it easier to clean.

Vacuum Consistently

The simplest way to eliminate all particles from your floors and oriental rugs is by vacuuming. It’s almost impossible to keep out all particles from entering your home – especially if you have children and pets. And carpets are excellent at capturing dirt from your feet. To prevent further damage to your oriental rugs, vacuum the house regularly. If you can’t find the time to do it yourself, call the experts from Hydro Clean Certified Restoration to give you a hand. We will provide you with the very best uniformed, trained technicians using state of the art equipment to remove and dirt and grime from your oriental rugs!

Before hosting a Christmas party and after the winter season is over are the best times of the year to consider having a professional cleaning service tidy up your rugs. Make sure to add a carpet protector to your carpets and rugs after they’ve been professionally cleaned!
