- Area Rugs
Persian rugs are simply rugs that are produced in Ancient Persia, modern-day Iran. Persian rugs are hand knotted using a specific Persian knot that allows fibers to be densely woven. These rugs are most often made of wool which is a durable and easy to clean fiber. However, Persian rugs should be handled with care. Always check the care label before cleaning your rug.
Roll up your Persian rug and take it outside. Firmly hold the corners of the rug while you powerfully shake it. Continue shaking until dirt, debris and crumbs stop falling from the rug. If your rug is too large to shake by yourself you can hang it over a railing or fence. Then give the rug a good beating with a broomstick or other strong stick. Be sure to hit both sides of the rug.
Vacuum your rug thoroughly starting with the back of the rug. Vacuuming the back of the rug (with the beater brush engaged) helps to loosen dirt within the rug fibers. If you have a long fiber rug (¾”+), we recommend disabling the beater brush while vacuuming the top of the rug. Also, avoid vacuuming fringe and knots with the beater brush. Any long fibers can be vacuumed using the upholstery attachment.
