Antique Rug Cleaning
Antique rugs bring vibrancy and color into any room. Just looking at them, you can see that excellent, skilled craftsmanship that has gone into their making.
Because these antique rugs are made with materials such as silk and wool, they require professional cleaning. At Oriental Rug Cleaners we’ve got a specific cleaning procedure which ensures that your valuable vintage rug undergoes a gentle rug cleaning procedure to bring it through looking bright and fresh.
We First Assess your Antique Rug
We give your antique rug a thorough once over, assessing its current condition. If we do spot any stains or damage, we take steps to prevent any further damage. We also like to alert customers to the damaged parts we find.
We use a method known as air dusting. This is where we make use of high volume compressed air to remove dust and debris before the rug comes into contact with water. It’s a process which takes between 30 and 60 minutes where the rug is cleared of all debris.
No Running of Colors
These rugs have beautiful colors and we want to make sure the purples, greens and reds don’t run or bleed. It’s important to check for colorfastness so that the yellow and white colors don’t become discolored. Before any rug is washed, we dye bleed test the rug for color stability.
Once we know that your rug is stable in terms of colors, we immerse your rug into a warm bubble bath, making use of compressed air and gentle antique rug cleaning products for natural fibers.
After gently washing your antique rug, we rinse it thoroughly. This is an important step as leaving soap residue behind can leave your rug stiff. We rinse your mat till the water runs clear.
Drying is Quick and Gentle
We aim to get your rug dried quickly so that no dirt is attracted to the dampness. The rugs we wash are laid out on our custom made drying towers where heat temperatures are regulated.
Making use of special rug combs, we groom the pile in the proper direction and gently comb the fringe of the rugs.
When your rug has been washed and groom, we give it a final inspection. We realize that every rug has to be 100% for our discerning customers. If the rug doesn’t meet our scrutiny, we will repeat the cleaning process till we are totally satisfied.
