You spent a lot of money to purchase your stunning oriental rug. The cleaner you choose to care for it must be diligent, professional and knowledgeable. But, since an oriental rug can’t be handled the same way as a standard rug.

Oriental rugs differ significantly from standard rugs in terms of construction, materials, and cultural significance. Their intricate designs often carry historical and artistic value, making them more than just floor coverings; they are works of art that have withstood the test of time. The cleaning process for oriental rugs necessitates a delicate touch and an in-depth knowledge of their origins, materials, and dyes.

When embarking on the journey to find the ideal cleaner for your treasured oriental rug, consider the following tips to make an informed decision:


Begin your search by asking around. If you know anyone who has had experience hiring an oriental rug cleaner, then that’s the best place to start. When you ask friends, family and colleagues for referrals, you know that they will be honest. If they have had a good experience with a company, they will be happy to share it with you.


Any rug cleaning company can tell you they’ll clean your oriental rug. Unfortunately, not every one of them can say they have had experience doing it before. A true oriental rug cleaner knows that you should never use any type of commercial equipment on such a fragile work of art. Ask about their experience level with your type of rug before even continuing the conversation. If they begin the explanation by saying anything about using automated equipment, it’s time to move on.

If they have cleaned oriental rugs before, ask them how long they’ve been performing that specific service (not simply in the rug cleaning business). Again, there is a difference, and you want to find the most qualified company possible.


When you’re looking for an oriental rug cleaner, don’t get hooked in by a cheap low-ball price. If it’s a company that has built a good reputation, hires a knowledgeable staff, and maintains a solid client base, they will not lowball you, because they don’t have to. Choose value over price every time.

When you’re looking for a quality Oriental rug cleaner, take your time, because if you choose the wrong one, your beautiful rug could end up paying the price.
