Cleaning expensive rugs – Know when you need a professional cleaning

Nov 2nd 2015 at 9:34 PM

If you’re one of those rare people who actually does do a good job cleaning things, you may have noticed that your beautiful rug can be more than a bit uncooperative. There’s a reason for this problem, and it’s not you.

The fact is that most of the best high quality rugs have very complex structures. Persian rugs, for example, are a very heavy type of woven fabric. This heavy weave compacts over time, and that’s the real problem. The same applies to wool, and just about all other materials used for top-quality rugs.

What happens is that all the grit and other materials are basically soaked up by therug. These materials create dense masses in the rug, and that’s Game Over for domestic cleaning purposes. It’s not really possible to clean rugs at this point using domestic cleaning tools.

Be thankful that it isn’t the sort of job you can do yourself. The materials in the rug aren’t the sort of things you would really want to get too close to when you’re cleaning. These materials include molds, fungal spores, smog particles, dust, bacteria, and pretty much anything which can get its all tangled up in a rug.

The answer, of course, is a professional clean. To properly clean a rug in this condition, you need heavy duty cleaning agents, and a lot of skill. This type of cleaning actually does drastically improve the condition of the rug, and does lengthen its life.
To illustrate the professional cleaning process – There’s a company in Los Angeles called Holland Rug Care, which is the new go-to place in LA for cleaning expensive rugs. This is the place you go to if you need oriental rug cleaning in Bel Air, Persian rug cleaning in Hollywood, or wool rug cleaning in Malibu.

If you check out their cleaning process on their website here at, you will see a multistage cleaning operation, including full immersion of rugs, color fastness testing, and many other cleaning processes. That’s what yourrug needs. Just do it. You’ll be glad you did, and your rug will look fantastic.
