Oriental Rug Cleaning is critical to the life of your wool rug!!!
Sunday, May 26, 2013
Oriental rugs are beautiful treasures and can be expensive works of art. Proper maintenance is very important to the life of hand knotted oriental tugs. What is involved in maintaining a wool rug?
First and foremost , rugs must be vacuumed regularly to remove as much dry soil and contaminates (dust, pollen, animal dander, etc.) as possible.
If a spill occurs, blot as much of the liquid as possible, don’t rub the post. This can cause fiber distortion. Call A Clean Solution for advice. Above all, don’t use over the counter cleaners on wool, silk or other specialty rugs. Over the counter cleaners can set a stain or cause the dyes to break down and bleed onto the other colors of the rug.
In the event that a pet accident occurs, the rug should be cleaned by A Clean Solution as soon as possible.
A Clean Solution recommends yearly professional maintenance of oriental, wool and specialty rugs. Our professional maintenance program includes:
- A regular inspection of the rugs to check for damage.
- Dry soil removal (Our specialized equipment will remove the very small sharp particles that become trapped in the scales of the wool and in the base yarns). This is the most important part of the cleaning process.
- Our shampoo and cold water wash removes soils from the fibers and fringes.
- Application of protector and moth repellent.
