Tips On How To Care For Persian Rugs To Avoid Fading And Sun Bleaching

  • Written by

When it comes to home furnishings, Persian rugs are some of the most prized possessions a person can own. Not only are they beautiful pieces of art, but they also add a touch of luxury and comfort to any space. However, one of the biggest concerns people have about Persian rugs is how to care for them so that they stay in good condition and don't fade or sun bleach over time. In this post, we'll outline some tips on how to take care of your Persian rug so that you can enjoy it for many years to come.

During summers, your rugs might become fade or be sun-bleached. Without keen attention, fading might increase and your rugs might lose their look and beauty. Also, sun bleaching might lessen the longevity of your rug. So, to keep your rugs safe from sun bleaching, you can follow the Persian rug care tips given below.

  • Avoid spreading your rugs in places that have direct sun exposure- Before placing a rug in any space, consider the orientation of that room and see how sunlight enters. Spot the places which have direct sun exposure and avoid placing your rugs on those places. You might also consider arranging your furniture accordingly and keeping your rugs safe from direct sunlight. 

  • Add layered or blackout curtains in rooms with extreme sunlight- Window coverings might help you to reduce fading or sun bleaching of your rugs. Blackout or layered curtains on your winders might not just keep your rugs intact but will also keep other upholstery safe from intense sunlight. 

  • Apply a protective coat to your windows- You might consider applying a UV protective coat on your windows to stop sun bleaching in your home. However, before applying this coating you need to ensure that your windows do not have air leakage from the window frame. 

  • Lay pastel or neutral coloured rugs near the windows- Pastel or neutral colours like ivory, beige or powder pink are less vibrant. So, they are less affected by sun rays. Hence, if you have ample sunlight entering your rooms, then choose a light-coloured rug that might not become fade due to light. Also, consider using rugs that have simple motifs and patterns which blend into the body colour. This helps you to keep the fading unnoticed. If you own a Persian or heirloom rug, then it might need more protection and attention. So, you might have to hire a professional Persian rug cleaning firm to carry out the deep cleaning of your precious rugs. 

  • Consult with experts to know if rug protectors can be used- The rug protectors containing fluorocarbon might help add a shielding layer to your rug and keep them safe from sun bleaching. Nevertheless, these protectors might not be effective for all types of carpets. Hence, you need to consult with Persian rug care specialists to ensure whether this shielding layer is right for your rug.
