Treating Stains on Oriental and Persian Rugs

Stained rug before being cleaned by Peacock Rug Care

Treating stains on Oriental and Persian rugs, spills and accidents should be addressed immediately.  But, DO NOT USE over-the-counter spotters found in drug, grocery, and home improvement stores.  These spotters are too aggressive and can leave irreversibly discolored areas.  Instead, use cold water or club soda as an emergency measure until a professional can clean the rug.

As well if you have spilled red wine on the rugs, use white wine on the spill to reverse the red wine color, blot with a white towel, rinse with water and place a folded white towel on the spot with a heavy item on top of the towel and walk away.  As the rug is drying the moisture will capillary into the towel.  Please do not hesitate to call us for advice, we can walk you through the emergency until we can clean the rug.  613-232-5110.

 

When treating stains on Oriental and Persian rugs remember the following:

  • Attend to accidents promptly.
  • Blot or scoop area with an absorbent [white] cotton towel, paper towel or spoon and remove as much as possible.
  • Test a small inconspicuous area first.
  • Use cool water; warm water when directed; never hot water.
  • Use the least amount of liquid, don’t saturate; place a towel on reverse side.
  • Blot, don’t rub back and forth; no brushing or scrubbing.
  • Work from outside edges of spot inward to the center.
  • Use recommended solutions in moderation.
