 How Delicate is an Antique Rug? Can I Clean it Myself?

Antique rugs are delicate because of their age and the use of natural materials like wool, silk, and cotton. These fibers get fragile over time with heavy use, humidity, sunlight, or pests. Handwoven techniques make them easy to damage, and natural dyes can fade or run with moisture or harsh cleaners. For these reasons, Ashly Rug Cleaners is the company to trust for safe & successful cleanings.

Cleaning antique rugs on your own can weaken fibers, impact dyes, and cause shrinkage, distortion, or color bleeding. Our technicians avoid such mishaps.

Our Antique Rug Cleaning Process in Houston, Spring, Katy, & Galveston

Caring for an antique rug by professionals is crucial for several reasons, ensuring the preservation, longevity, and value of these historical and artistic pieces. Ashly Rug Cleaners follows a meticulous rug cleaning process to ensure your antique rugs receive the care they deserve. Here are the essential steps we take:

step 1

Preliminary Inspection

Before any cleaning begins, Ashly Rug Cleaners conducts a thorough preliminary inspection of each antique rug. During this assessment, we examine the rug’s condition, including color stability, stains, and any specific issues. Based on the inspection results, we determine the necessary treatments for each unique rug.

step 2


Dusting is a critical step in antique rug cleaning. The rug is gently dusted and vacuumed to remove dust, dirt, and debris from both sides. This process ensures that loose particles are eliminated before the rug undergoes further cleaning.

step 3

Washing Process

Ashly Rug Cleaners uses eco-friendly soap and water for washing. A soft brush or scrubbing tool is employed to work the soap into the rug. Special attention is given to any stains, as removing discoloration may require additional effort. Once clean, the rug is thoroughly rinsed to remove all traces of soap.

step 4

Rooftop Drying

After washing, the rug is laid out on a rooftop area. The Houston heat aids in drying the rug naturally. This process not only removes germs and bacteria but also brightens the white wool fibers. Typically, rugs are left to dry for several days to achieve optimal results.

step 5

Allergen Reduction

Ashly Rug Cleaners’ specialized cleaning process can reduce or eliminate common allergens such as tree pollen, dust mites, mold, mildew, pet dander, and pet hair. If you suffer from allergies or asthma, our cleaning services can help improve indoor air quality.

step 6

Removal of Spills and Stains

If something spills on your vintage rug, act quickly to prevent it from setting in. A professional carpet cleaner for advice on how to handle spills based on the rug’s material.

step 7

Routine Checkups

Every one to three years, consider having your antique rug professionally cleaned. Professionals can assess the rug’s specific needs and use appropriate methods to preserve its value and beauty.
