Oriental rugs can be a beautiful addition to your Nashville home, and regularly cleaning your rug can maintain its quality. An Oriental rug’s thickness means that it can trap dirt from foot traffic, in addition to pet spots and spilled drinks.

While traditional Oriental rug cleaning involves harsh chemicals and long drying times, our unique, natural process uses citrus oil to extract dirt and pet spots with minimal environmental impact.

The Traditional Oriental Rug Cleaning Method

The traditional cleaning process for Oriental rugs involves a significant amount of water and soap. This process is not environmentally-friendly, and also involves large machines.

Because of this, the cleaning technique also requires that you be left without it for a week or more. It can also be cost-prohibitive.

To begin, cleaners shoot water and shampoo into the rug with pressurized hoses, then scrub with large push broom-like brushes.

The Oriental rug is then rinsed and blow-dried before returning to your home. While this can seem like a sufficient way to clean a rug, your rug is not completely clean. There is residual soap left behind in the rug fibers, which will yellow over time.

We thought that the process needed to change, so we created a new way to clean your Oriental rugs.

Cleaning Your Oriental Rugs with CitruSolution

With CitruSolution, we use limited water and natural ingredients to clean your Oriental rug in your home with effective results. We offer a non-toxic cleaning solution that will remove trouble spots like red wine and pet spots.

When we clean your Oriental rug, you can expect the following process:

  • Our unique citrus solution is sprayed across the surface of your rug.
  • We work the solution into the area with a portable buffer with a separate brush.
  • The bonnet cleaning system will remove the dirt build up in your Oriental rug.
  • We vacuum the area to remove the debris the buffer brought to the surface.

We’ve chosen to use Lindhaus Health Pro vacuums, which is a powerful HEPA model. HEPA stands for “High-Efficiency Particulate Air,” and can pick up micron-sized dust particles. This ensures a thorough cleaning that will pick up far more dirt than a conventional vacuum.

The Benefits of Using CitruSolution for Your Oriental Rug Cleaning

Using CitruSolution means your Oriental rugs will be cleaned in an environmentally friendly way. In addition to the limited amount of water, D-Limonene is a naturally occurring oil in orange, lemon, and grapefruit peels.

This citrus oil offers powerful stain-cutting properties, and is also proven to destroy dust mites. (One of the most common allergens in a home.)

This process also offers a quick drying time. Your rug will be dry in about two hours, and spots will not reappear. Once we finish cleaning your Oriental rug, we’ll leave a bottle of CitruSolution to treat new spots between cleaning appointments.

“Last weekend, a guest spilled a whole glass of red wine on my clean oriental rug. I blotted up the excess and sprayed the bottle [CitruSpotter] you gave me on the spot, fearing the worst. Zap! Like magic the spot was gone!” — Teddie C., 12th South Nashville
