As an Oriental Rug Dyeing specialist, as well as collector of fine rugs, myself, I’d like to educate you just a bit on caring for your Persian/Oriental rugs.
Most handmade Persian/Oriental rugs are made from high quality natural fibers such as wool and silk. It takes many people years to very intricately hand craft one of these rugs. Some are made with natural dyes from bugs and berries, and others from synthetic dyes. One sure fire way to distinguish the difference between the two is, natural dyes in Persian/Oriental rugs will not have an even and consistent color. Synthetic dyes, however will maintain an even color throughout the entire rug.
I’ll start with one of the easiest ways to take care of your handmade rug. Rotation Rotation Rotation. Yep. Once a year, you’ll want to rotate that beautiful oriental rug 180 degrees. If you need help with this process, simply call The Carpet Chemist. When rugs are placed in rooms with natural light coming in through the windows or skylight, the sun will take a toll on the color of your rugs. Rugs will lose at least 1% to 3% of their color every single year from sunlight, but the human eye will not even detect color loss until around 10% color loss.
Do NOT use over the counter cleaning products on your Persian/Oriental rugs unless they have the WoolSafe logo on the bottle.

Rug overdyeing is the process of adding color to an old worn rug to give it an updated look that matches your decor. Give your space a bold statement piece with The Carpet Chemist’s rug overdyeing service.
No two rug overdyeing projects are going to be the same. The carpet Chemist specially formulates a hot dye solution that is prepared in a huge vat in our Chemist Lab. Your rug will marinate in the dye bath for several hours to several days, depending on the material of your rug, the size, and structural integrity. Some rug overdyeing jobs may only take hours and not have to be submerged at all. The dyes can be applied with our dye spraying machines, which again, will depend on the material, size, age and structural integrity of the rug.
