Cleaning an Indian Rug.

Indian rugs are typically hand knotted and use wool yarn for the pile and Cotton yarn for the foundations. They are often a copied design of other oriental rugs, they often copy Persian, Chinese and Afghan rug designs and come in a multitube of colours. This is why it isn’t recommended to have your Indian Rug cleaned in your home by a carpet cleaning machine.

Indian Rug Cleaning

Indian rugs, although unique in other elements, are very unlikely to be original in their designs. Even though India is a major production centre for oriental rugs, contemporary Indian rugs tend to resemble the likes of Persian, Chinese, Turkoman and Aubusson rugs; however, back in the day, their hand-knotted, chain-stitched and dhurries represented some of the most famous constructions of India.

Opposingly, the up-to-date version of these authentic carpets take all of their inspiration from the already-popular oriental rugs; they bare the characteristics of plants and animals on a beautiful and rich colour palette of blues, yellows, pinks and greens. However, even though these rugs share the same aesthetics as other oriental rugs, their consistency can determine them apart from the originals.

An Indian rug can be distinguished by the quality of their weaves; a Persian rug, for instance, is hand-knotted with the highest level of wool and silks, whereas an Indian rug is weaved with coarse wool that is asymmetrical-knotted on a cotton foundation. This, if you didn’t already know, means that its bristles are more likely to seep and lose figure.

Being finer was never the case when they were initially manufactured during the 16th, 17th and 18th century, but since, they have dropped dramatically in their quality; unless purchased from smaller businesses in the cities of Srinagar, Amritsar and Agra. Nonetheless, Indian rugs are exquisite and do last up to years when looked after properly.

Caring for your Indian Rug

Here at Arcadia Rug Spa, we are highly experienced and knowledgable in what an Indian rug needs to maintain its beautiful presentation. Being a rug made of a finer weave, we recommend that you are consistently patting it down, hoovering it and rotating it so that all areas of the rug are being used to the same extent. 

In terms of cleaning, it is imperative that you get your Indian rug cleaned professionally so that it keeps its shape and bright colours looking vibrant. Being a rug cleaning company which is made up of a team that has over 20 years of experience in this field, we give you confidence in that we have dealt with every type of oriental rug that you can think of; meaning your rug couldn’t be in better hands. 

We are aware of how delicate an Indian rug is which is why we take extra care in handling, cleaning and drying of each and every rug that we are approached with. Our step-by-step cleaning process allows us to ensure that every inch of a rug is left disinfected and smelling lovely, while also maintaining it’s soft-exterior.
