Silk Rug Cleaning
Silk Rug Cleaning
Do you have a silk rug in your home? These are a great piece of art, and instantly beautify any room where they are laid. You will always want your rug to maintain its attractive appearance, right? Well, this can only be when you avail the services of a professional silk rug cleaning company on a regular basis. Indeed, you can try to do this at home but other than regular sweeping and vacuuming, we highly advise you not to do anything else.
Silk rugs are valuable, which is why they can only be effectively cleaned when you have complete knowledge of the rug’s origin, the quality of the material, the dyes used, and the age of the rug. Generally, what most homeowners do is clean their silk rug with some foam and sponge. This damages the fiber of your rug and shortens it light.
So instead of home cleaning, you should send your rug over to us and we will take care of the rest.
Common issues with silk rug cleaning
There are two main issues with cleaning silk rugs. If the age of your rug is old, it will probably be dried up since it has not been washed enough or not washed properly. In this case, the fibers are hardened and cleaning becomes difficult. The second problem is seen with silk rugs that are of a slightly poor quality. These rugs have been dyed with colors that fade when they come in contact with water.
Quality silk rugs such as the ones originating from Persia and China usually exhibit high quality and are made with natural silk. With these rugs, color fading is not an issue, but in all other cases, the rugs are made from cotton, which is made similar to silk and there is always a risk of color fading if not washed properly.
Turkish rugs do not feature low quality dyes, but must still be cleaned properly so that they do not crack as they dry.
The Cleaning Process
Since silk rug cleaning has a great many issues associated with it, which we have already described above, care must be taken to ensure that the rug is not spoiled in any way. Before we subject your rug to any of our processes, we conduct a thorough inspection and determine the quality, fiber, and stains that are present on the rug. We also study the color, and accordingly choose a suitable cleaning method.
We use soft water to clean your rug so that the fibers are not hardened in any way. If the fibers are already hard, we first soften them with quality products and then begin the cleaning process. Generally, we focus our attention on the stains and remove these first. After that we subject your rug to a suitable cleaning method. In the end, we give your rug a protective coating so that it offers a resistance to stains.
