What are Persian Rugs?
The Persian rug is undoubtedly one of the most distinguished manifestations of Persian culture and art, and dates back to ancient Persia. The designs of Persian rugs are copied by weavers from other countries as well.
The art of carpet weaving existed in Persia in ancient times. According to evidence such as the 2500-year-old Pazyryk carpet, it dates back to 500 B.C., during the Achaemenid period. The first documented evidence on the existence of Persian carpets came from Chinese texts dating back to the Sassanid period (224 – 641 AD).
This art underwent many changes in various eras of the Iranian history, from Zoroastrian period and Islamic Period to Modern period. The designs, motifs and patterns of these beautiful pieces of art are unique to their region, cities, villages and weavers within Iran. Your choice of a Tabriz, Isfahan, Kashan, a 100% silk Qum, or a Sarouk is just a few on a long list. Palaces or cozy apartments alike, a rug defines your space and brings color, warmth and comfort to your home.
How Persian Rug Cleaning Works
The best Persian rug cleaning in NYC service is revitaRUGS. Revita revitalizes rugs, purging them of dirt, bacteria, dust mites, allergens, stains and odors. There are no harsh chemicals in our wash process. In fact, our processes using soft water removes the toxic residue left by previous rug cleaners and gently strips away the brittle calcium deposited in your rug by the hard water they use.
The drying stage is a key element in protecting your rug. The typical hanging of rugs in a damp, uncontrolled environment promotes the growth of mold and bacteria. Also, the long hanging process can lead to deformation of the rug as well as color run where natural dyes will bleed from darker areas into lighter shades.
At Revita, through a patent pending primary stage drying system, 90% of water is removed within minutes. The rug after a thorough inspection enters a computerized brushing machine, automatically adjusted for the pile height to gently comb each rug in the direction of its pile. This organic rug cleaning process uniformly restores the luster and natural direction of the rug pile to its original state.
The rug is then transferred to a fully enclosed environmentally regulated chamber, engineered with de-humidification and temperature control, dust free walls, and filter-circulated air. In these controlled enclosures, low humidity and air circulation wicks out remaining moisture quickly and efficiently.
