These fine rugs are weaved with absolute quality, with deep and specialist knotting patterns, unique to the type of rug in question. Dirt and grime can often build up in the lower layers of your rug, where it can get caught amongst the ties, and over time the bright aesthetics can begin fade. As a subsequent of the weaving methods, these rugs are highly durable and so trying to remove the dirt from within can take some serious work and a full, professional method to do effectively.
To achieve the very best results from cleaning your fine rug, a professional and systematic process should be endorsed. To begin an effective process, we loosen and separate as much dirt and dust from the fibers as possible. We will then test the colors of the rug to see how sensitive the particular dyes are going to be when cleaning. With this information we can select the right treating agent for the task. The rug will then be thoroughly washed and brush scrubbed to deeply clean all remaining impurities, by one of our expert cleaners. All members of our team are knowledgeable in the appropriate techniques needed for fine rug cleaning whilst caring for the resistance and delicacy of the fibers in any particular area.
It is sometimes inevitable that stains and odors begin to appear in your fine rug, over time. Different types of stain can leave behind different impurities and so must be cleaned specifically. Through spot cleaning, we will be able to react to any type of stain or odor. By identifying the needs, we will apply the necessary treatment agent before targeting that one area for a thorough cleaning, leaving a fresh and bright area, likewise to the rest of the cleaned rug.
Dust and Mites
The depth of the weaving in fine area rugs are ideal conditions to cater for the build up of dust, pollen, crumbs and dust mites. These dust mites thrive in these conditions, as the dust they feed on is in healthy supply and there is refuge in the lower levels of the rug. Mites can be a health hazard to humans, therefore, as they are a leading cause for allergens exiting the rug becoming airborne. To keep your fine rug in healthy condition, it is always recommended to have them exterminated. Many fine rugs are sensitive to general household chemicals and so if the wrong agent is used, you could find damage done to your rug.
Mold and Mildew
Due to the deeply woven nature of most fine rugs, when washing, they can often remain wet and damp for a considerable amount of time. If cleaned improperly, this can be the ideal conditions for mold and mildew to begin growing and spreading. With typically delicate and natural materials, such as cotton or wool being used, it’s common that this growth can progress to the dry rotting of your fine rug.
