I have an expensive oriental rug that has some brown stains from being walked on with shoes.  How should I go about cleaning it?

RE: cleaning expensive oriental rug
Personally, I would not mess with it, especially if it is an expensive rug.  It may bleed color or fade if you try to spot clean.  Call a professional and have them take care of it. They can come out to your house and clean your rug just like they can carpet.  You can find carpet cleaners by doing a search with the locator tool on this site.  Hope that helps.

I agree with Mrskosha.  Unless you know who the rug was made by, and use products specifically recommended by the manufacturer, you could ruin your rug.  Spot cleaning doesn't really get all of the stain out in most cases anyways, it simply removes the surface of the stain and often pushes the stain deeper.

TIP: Many carpet manufacturers require that you have your carpet cleaned by an IICRC certified carpet cleaner to maintain your warranty.

RE: cleaning expensive oriental rug
Thanks for your opinions.  I think I will take it to my dry cleaner.  It's a very small rug, so I can't see having a carpet cleaner actually come over.  Thanks for the advice though.  I appreciate it.
