How much dirt can an oriental rug hold?

Oriental rugs can hold several pounds of dirt. Wool fibers under a microscope are very jagged. This jagged shape helps trap dirt and makes vacuuming less effective. This dirt also can be very damaging to the fibers of the rug. Dirt can act like little knives and actually cut the fibers. This can reduce the life span of your expensive oriental rugs. Professional cleaning can help with this.

Professional rug dusting is a great first step in the cleaning process. Wool rugs can really hold the dirt. Regular vacuuming has a hard time doing an effective job of removing soil. At a professional cleaning facility a rug dusting procedure can get more of the soil out than any vacuum cleaner regardless of the price. Rugs are laid flat upside down on top of some grates. Then our rug dusting machine is run over the back of the rug to agitate the dirt out of the rug. Dirt get impacted into the backing of your rug and simple vacuuming cannot effectively dislodge it.

Dry soil removal before the cleaning process is the key to cleaning wool rugs. Rugs are cleaned and rinsed. Spots are worked on to attempt removal. Rugs are groomed and hung to dry. After drying rugs are reinspected. Rugs are either reclined, touched up or rolled up after the inspection.
