Can I Wash My Persian Rug? [Solved]

Truth be told, no one fancies a grubby rug! Imagine having spent hundreds of dollars on a carpet just to see it fail in its very purpose. A rug surely can bring a room together and enhance the comfort and beauty of the room. However, that can only happen if it is clean. Given the’s havingad costing and nature of creation, the stakes are ultimately higher if you own a Persian rug. A bit of context here, Persian Rugs originated from Iran (only if it wasn’t obvious by the name) 🙌 They stand out amongst traditional carpets on the elaborateness and variety of their design 😁 [1]
Hand-knotted Persian rugs tend to accumulate more dust, and it of course depends on whether yours is in a high traffic area of your home or not. If yours is in the hallway or an open space of your lounge, then you’re looking at a good vacuuming every couple of weeks. But if yours is on display in the guest bedroom which sees infrequent visitors, then a vacuum every couple of months is likely all it needs. You need to find a happy medium between vacuuming enough to stop the buildup of dirt and bacteria, and not vacuuming too much which could loosen and damage the rug’s natural fibers.

Hand-knotted rugs are masterful at hiding dirt and soil. This is both a good and a bad thing. It’s amazing how you can lay a thick, well made rug with a dark ground colourr like a good quality Bidjar for instance, that will take foot traffic for years without looking horrible and dirty. This is a plus in terms of aesthetics however this rug will be hiding soil, pollutants and contaminants deep in it’s foundation that are slowly but surely destroying it. This is why you can’t decide whether your rug is due a clean by visually assessing it. It will fool you. (we truly appreciate Latrina Magee for bringing this to our attention). [5]
