Tabriz Persian Rug Care

Part-1 : Owning a Tabriz Persian Rug is not just about adding a beautiful touch of colour to your home; it's about investing in a functional work of art that carries centuries of tradition and craftsmanship. These exquisite rugs, known for their vibrant colors and intricate designs, require special care to maintain their beauty and structural integrity

Let's walk you through some essential tips for the daily and weekly maintenance of your Tabriz rug, how to prevent damage, and what to consider when choosing a professional cleaning service. Ensuring the right care will keep your rug looking splendid for generations to come.

Your Tabriz Persian Rug
Tabriz Persian Rugs are distinguished by their rich history and exquisite craftsmanship. Originating from the city of Tabriz in Iran (formerly known as Persia), one of the oldest rug weaving centers in the world, these rugs are renowned for their diverse designs, ranging from medallion to garden patterns, and their vibrant use of colour. Crafted from high-quality wool and sometimes silk, these rugs are dyed with natural colors that give them their unique luminosity. However, their delicate materials and natural dyes require specific care to avoid damage. Understanding the uniqueness of your Tabriz rug is the first step toward preserving its beauty and value.

Tabriz Area Rug Daily and Weekly Maintenance Tips

Daily or Weekly Care: Gentle vacuuming is crucial for your Tabriz rug. Use a vacuum without a beater bar or set it on the highest setting to avoid pulling on the rug's fibers. Vacuuming in the direction of the pile will help prevent damage. To figure out the direction of the pile, rug your hand along the surface of your rug. The direction with less resistance is the direction you should run your vacuum.

Spot Cleaning: In the event of spills, it's important to act quickly. Blot the spill with a clean, dry, white terry cloth to absorb as much liquid as possible. If the spill is more paste like or solid, use a spoon or butter knife to remove as much of the solid material as possible. Avoid using harsh chemicals; instead, opt for a few drops of mild dish detergent (like Dawn) mixed with water or a wool-safe rug cleaner.

Monthly or Quarterly Measures: Besides vacuuming, take your rug outside and gently beat it to remove any embedded dust and dirt. Additionally, airing out your rug can help prevent moisture accumulation and the associated risks of mold and mildew growth. In the Winter, you can take your rug outside, place it on dry, clean snow, and use a soft brush to brush the snow over your area rug. Shake off all the snow before bringing your rug back inside.
