Watch Rare Persian Rug Get Its First Cleaning in Two Decades

Cleaning a Persian rug

In a recently posted YouTube video by Insider, a rare Persian rug from the 1940s valued at US$12,500 got its first cleaning in more than 20 years.

The three-step process required first using a browning treatment, which was used to remove a variety of stains and improve discoloration due to the rug’s age. After a hose down, shampoo was applied and agitated using a scrubber, which loosened up dirt and debris from the fibers. After being shampooed a second time, an extractor sucked up remaining moisture. The rug was then hung to be airdried completely, to avoid any growth of mold and mildew.
