Assistance for Oriental Rugs
A high-quality Oriental rug will never go obsolete or lose its value. While original Persian or Turkish rugs may be costly, they will get even more beautiful with time. If you are passionate about textile arts and have a good knowledge of high-quality dyes or fibers, you will enjoy admiring your Oriental carpets from your living area or bedrooms. These carpets were created to provide comfort for your feet. They also retain warmth. The same fibers are also known to prevent sound vibrations from reverberating from the walls. This provides incredible levels of comfort without compromising style. But what if they were stained by pet urine or coffee spills? While some stains can easily be removed by using some DIY remedies, others may require a more thorough cleaning.
If you are looking at a new coffee stain, or a paint stain on your Persian rug or Turkish carpet, and are unsure how to proceed with it, it is best that you let the pros do it. You can contact us right away if you see a stain on your Persian or Turkish carpet. Sometimes we may need special dry cleaning products or heavy artillery. Sometimes, regular steaming will do the trick. It's best to rely solely on the expertise and experience of professional carpet cleaners, rather than trying your hand at it.
Let us now examine some of the simplest and most harmful methods to remove spillages from Oriental carpets, in case of an emergency.
How Do You Handle Fresh Liquid Spills
The most common types are coffee and fruit juice spillages, red wine spillages, coolaid spillages, and other spillages. Use a towel to dry the stain. You will have better chances of restoring your carpet to its original state if you get rid as soon as possible. A paper towel may work better. Look at the liquid that was embedded deep within the fibers. Do you think water could help to dissolve it? You don't want to end up dumping liters onto the carpet. You could see the precious colors of some area rug dyes bleed through the carpet onto the floors. It is important to read the manufacturer’s instructions so that you know what you can do and what you cannot. The rule of thumb is to not let your carpet get too wet.
While an Oriental carpet can stay dry without experiencing severe damage, it is best that it not be wet. For faster drying, elevate the carpet with a fan or patio. If the stains continue to remain even after the carpet has been dried, you can schedule an appointment for an expert cleaning service. They will use professional tools to remove them.
How To Get Rid Of Pet Waste Stains
The "trick", is to be there when it happens or right afterward, spot it immediately and know exactly how to deal with it.
- Take a paper towel and use it to wipe out the urine. Take into account that dog urine can be quite acidic. (Just think of the yellowed grass in the backyard). Therefore, it is important to get rid of it as soon and quickly as possible.
- An old urine stain, for example, on an Oriental wool carpet can make colors fade, leave yellowish stains that aren't appealing to the eyes, or create a messy look. The easier you can deal with a urine spot, the better.
- Put a mixture of water and white vinegar on the carpet. Allow it to sit for a while. It should also help to remove the stain and dilute any remaining urine. To prevent more damage from occurring, you should call an expert carpet cleaner.
