Dry Soil – The Kiss of Death to Oriental Rugs

Dry soil removed from area rug after vacuuming

On an annual basis Oriental Rug Salon cleans hundreds of area rugs and in every single instance, no matter how often an area rug was vacuumed by its owner, we are able to remove an astonishing amount of dry soil prior to the submersion cleaning process.

Dry soil, sand, pollen and dust mites are allergens trapped in every area rug.  With regular vacuuming, the homeowner can remove “some” of these impurities, but many are trapped in the area rugs foundation where they’ll remain until professionally removed.

When cleaning an area rug, one of the first steps to ensure a quality washing it to make certain dry soil, sand, etc. is removed from the foundation of the rug.  Rug owners should vacuum their area rugs regularly to prevent “sanding” and “traffic lanes” from appearing.

At Oriental Rug Salon, we utilize the power of the RugBadger; a device designed to deliver over 40,000 harmonic vibrations per minute to an area rug.  These harmonic vibrations help to completely separate sediments and other harmful elements from your rugs foundation while preparing it for a salon bath.

With these elements removed (see examples), we have the confidence in knowing that once your area rug receives a thoroughly exhaustive full submersion cleaning, it can be returned as clean as humanly possible.

You see, dry soils and sand act as sandpaper to the fibers of your cherished rug.  As we walk across the area rug, the trapped contaminants scratch the fibers of the rug and will cause traffic lanes and fiber distortion.

With proper dusting and cleaning, coupled with regular vacuuming and repositioning your area rug (simply rotating it every six months) you’ll greatly extend the life and beauty of your textile for decades to come.
