Taking Care of Your Zahir Shahi Rugs

Vacuum Cleaning:

Vacuum cleaning will remove dirt and debris from the rug, thereby improving its appearance and life as well. But avoid using a powerful vacuum cleaner as they can damage the pile or the fringes.

Place Your Furniture Away from Area Rugs:

Heavy furniture like a bed shouldn't be placed on a rug. It won't only crush the fibers, but also create dents. Or you can use furniture coasters to protect your rugs from damage.

Opt for Professional Cleaning:

No matter how ardent you are with your regular cleaning, professional cleaning is still required. Professional cleaning equipment takes dirt and debris left untouched by a domestic vacuum cleaner. They maintain the look of your carpet and life as well. Get your rugs cleaned by professionals every 12-18 months. You may require the service more often if your rug is placed in a heavy traffic area or if you have pets or airborne allergies.

Remove Stains Immediately:

Remove stains immediately as they can become permanent over time. Use a clean dry cloth as soon as spill something on the rug. Make sure to call a pro rug cleaner when the stain is too stubborn to be removed.

Keep It Away from the Sun:

A rug placed in a bright and lit room is likely to get faded due to the direct exposure of UV rays. Try to place your rugs away from windows. Besides, rotate it at least twice a year to distribute any color changes on the rug.

Be Careful with Carpet Cleaning Products:

Choose your carpet cleaning product carefully as some products contain a chemical that may damage the fabrics or stain the color. Make sure to read the instructions carefully and test it on a small patch of a rug to ensure that it is safe.
