When you are finished with the vacuuming the rug you can then move on to the second step of carpet cleaning.
Sponge your Persian rug

Mix the warm water and your detergent of choice in the bucket until it becomes a soapy solution. We then recommend that you take a sponge and dip it in the soapy solution. Use the sponge to scrub the Persian rug gently. Ensure that you do this scrubbing in the direction of the Persian carpets nap. If your carpet is of significant size, you may want to opt for professional carpet cleaning Alexandria VA services to do this for you.
Brush your Persian rug
The next step of the Persian rug cleaning process is to brush the rug. We recommend that you use a brush that has soft bristles to avoid damaging your Persian rug. Once you have the brush, dip it in the same soapy solution that you had made to use with a sponge. If the soapy solution is finished or if it dirty, you will need to make a fresh batch using warm water and a mild detergent of your choice. As with the sponging stage of carpet cleaning Alexandria VA, you should brush the rug according to the direction of the nap. Start from one end of the Persian rug and brush it gently making your way to the other end.
Rinsing and drying your Persian rug
To rinse your Persian rug, you will be required to run a generous amount of cold water atop it. You can choose to use a hose to do this or if the rug is small enough you could hold it under the shower until all the soap has been eliminated. Once you are satisfied that you have gotten rid of all the soap, you should then squeeze out any excess water that may still be in the rug.
