Generally Oriental rugs will increase in value with age and proper care. They can be preserved and passed down from generation to generation.

While vacuuming removes most dry soil, the oily soil collected from different sources like pollutions deposited on carpet fibers, which can cause the color of rugs become dull. Although the color isn't lost is just hidden under a dirty film. If it remains too long it becomes gummy and difficult to remove.
