The Holidays can be a wonderful time with friends and family gathering in your home to celebrate all of the festivities of the season. One way you can start preparing your home to look its very best is by getting your Oriental Rugs professionally cleaned and repaired and replacing old padding if necessary.
Another great tip for not just the holidays but year round is to prepare an
emergency quick fix box. My quick fix box contains all of the basic stain
remover products that I’ve already researched and tested on my Persian Rugs and upholstery fabrics. Your box should include a bottle of white vinegar, box of baking soda, a bottle of distilled water, Kosher salt, a bottle of peroxide, colorless sponges, clean white terry towels, Q-tips, dye-free
laundry detergent and any other commercial cleaners that you have already pretested. I also keep in my box a laminated solution chart based on the type of spill.
One more smart idea is to invest in quality furniture casters and chair glides to prevent indents in your rugs’ pile and scratches to your floors. Especially during the holidays, castors and chair glides will protect your Oriental Rugs and floors from the wear and tear of guests pulling in and out table chairs and moving around furniture to create conversational seating. There are companies that supply very specific castors depending on your furniture including All Glides at www.allglides.com.
