Step 1: Vacuum Your Bokhara Rug Regularly!

Double pile Bokhara rugs can be a breeding ground for dirt and dust particles. Therefore, it is essential to vacuum each side of a silk rug thoroughly. It is advisable to choose a vacuum cleaner designed explicitly for double-pile rugs.  However, vacuuming in excess may damage rug fibers. Therefore it is recommended to start with the oldest rug cleaning method- shaking your rug out by hand. If your Bokhara rug is larger, hang your rug on a fence or a clothesline and use a beater on it. This will give your area rug a chance to breathe from dirt and dust particles.  Also, attach a beater brush to your vacuum Bukhara. This will ensure that your Bokhara rug is free of all loose fibers and dust.

Step 2: Shampoo Through Each Corner Thoroughly

Dilute the shampoo in a bucket of water and whip the mixture with your hands until you've created a rich red leather. Use a sponge and dip it into the solution, starting from one end of the wool rug, gently work your way up, while frequently rinsing the sponge as dirt draws up. For proper Bokhara rugs cleaning, make sure not to overwet the fibers. This is because wool is overly absorbent and can take a significant amount of time to dry.

Step 3: Rinse Away Through Plain Clean Water

Use a sponge to rinse the mixture on the types of rugs with plain fresh water. This is very important as any shampoo left in the fibers may invite dirt and soil.

Step 4: Dry It Out

Clean Bokhara rugs by blotting the rug with old towels, for it will soak up immoderate moisture. Repeat this step until the entire surface has been cleaned. To speed up the drying process, using a blower or space heater should do the trick with dark blue with the cleaning process for carpet cleaning.

Step 5: Making Sure All Spots And Stains Are Out!

Spills and stains are going to happen from time to time, no matter how careful you are! The best way to deal with spills is to immediately clean them, giving them little or no time to submerge more rooted into the fibers wool pile with non-prayer rugs. First and foremost, do not rub a fresh stain. Instead, blot it with a paper towel. Then, prepare a mixture of soap and water, and apply it on the stain with the help of a clean cloth. You may also use white distilled vinegar, as it won't damage the wool or cause the dyes to bleed. Let the affected area dry and then sprinkle baking powder to help eliminate any odor left by the stain.
