Cleaning & Care for Your Oriental Rug!

Handmade oriental rugs can add warmth, beauty and give the finishing touch to any decor. An Oriental rug is a purchase for a life time and when maintained properly, can last for generations, enhance the appearance and mood of interiors.

Handmade Rugs do require special care & cleaning to maintain their beauty, originality, look and value. Many intricate dyes are used in making of a quality rug. This is the area where a rug can lose most of its value when cleaned incorrectly or dried improperly.

Most of the oriental rugs are made of 100% wool and are very durable. Unlike other fibers, wool is much more resilient, can be clean easily and even stays clean longer too.


If your rug gets stains, spills, pet accident or water damage, immediate and professional cleaning is must and can save the dyes and colors of the rug.

With over 30 years of experience, at Oriental Rug Palace we hand wash each rug with mild soap and cold water that comes to us. We do not suggest steam cleaning or any chemicals in the cleaning process because the dyes can run causing discoloration or fading. In addition to specializing in cleaning of handmade rugs we also clean machine made rugs and removing unwanted odors.
