How Often Should You Professionally Clean Your Persian & Oriental Rugs?

Persian and Oriental rugs are beautiful and can add a touch of elegance to any home. However, like any other piece of furniture, they need to be cleaned regularly to keep them looking their best.

The frequency with which you need to clean your Persian or Oriental rug will depend on a number of factors, including:

  • The type of rug. Some rugs are more prone to dirt and dust than others. For example, wool rugs are more absorbent than synthetic rugs, so they will need to be cleaned more often.
  • The traffic in your home. If you have a high-traffic area in your home, such as a hallway or living room, you will need to clean your rug more often than if you have a low-traffic area.
  • The climate in your home. If you live in a humid climate, you will need to clean your rug more often than if you live in a dry climate.


Persian and Oriental rugs are very similiar types of rugs. Both are hand-knotted and made of common materials such as wool, cotton, silk and animal hair. However, Persian rugs are commonly symmetrical in design, while Oriental rugs usually display designs such as landscapes. Both of these rugs are of a very high quality and can last upwards of 50 years, even in high use areas. The key is to keep your rug well cared for, and that means professionally cleaning your rug at least every 3 to 5 years, more if placed in a high traffic area.

If you are not sure how often to clean your rug, it is always best to consult with a professional rug cleaner like Quality Care Cleaning. We can assess your rug and recommend the best cleaning schedule for your needs.

Here are some tips for keeping your Persian or Oriental rug clean:

  • Vacuum your rug regularly. This will help to remove dirt, dust, and hair from the surface of the rug.
  • Spot clean spills and stains immediately. The longer a spill or stain is allowed to set, the more difficult it will be to remove.
  • Avoid using harsh chemicals on your rug. These chemicals can damage the fibers of the rug.
  • Have your rug professionally cleaned at least once a year. This will help to remove deep-seated dirt and grime that cannot be removed by vacuuming.

By following these tips, you can help to keep your Persian or Oriental rug looking its best for years to come.
