Rug Cleaning 101

Silk Rugs must be dry cleaned because they are made out of vegetable dye. You want to make sure the texture of the silk will stay soft and shiny. In addition, it’s important the brushing of a silk rug is only in one direction so the design stays sharp and keeps the rug vibrant and shiny. Silk rugs generally are made in China, Turkey, Iran and India. Some rugs are made from artificial silk using micro fabric to look like a silk rug.

For Leather and Animal Skin Rugs we perform a special dry cleaning. It’s important not to wet it because the leather will break and get damaged. We dry clean the leather in a special tumbling machine with a special powder. The powder is filled with a solvent that makes all the dirt come out and make the leather fluffy and shiny. We use a chip of wood that scrubs the leather and makes it shiny and clean. We dust the leather and dry it. After drying it we do a special brush to make it fluffy.

Antique Rugs are usually made with vegetable dye. We use low PH shampoo to make sure the color will not bleed. Low PH protects the rug in the process of cleaning. Antique rug cleaning is done by hand and with soft brushes. We don’t want to put any equipment on top of a antique rug. The idea is to use a lot of shampoo and water for rinsing. After cleaning, the drying process is fast, allowing the rug to be soft and the color vibrant.

New Rugs, Chinese Rugs and Chemical Dye Rugs are washed with a high PH so colors stay deep, shiny and the rug is clean.

For Shag Rugs and White Rugs, the most important part is to remove the dust from inside of the rug using a tumbling machine with no water. There is a movement in the machine and the dust goes into the dust collector. It’s important to wash with a low PH to prevent from browning.

A Tufted Rug is usually made in China and India and from our experience, the glue used to make rugs isn’t the best. The glue makes the rug smell of burn. When the rug is exposed to sun or ages, the glue gets dry and becomes a white powder. In this instance, we heavily recommend removing the backing and the glue. We replace it with a new glue and backing which is green. For Tufted rugs we provide a surface wash with a steam machine, 600 PSI of injecting steam into the fabric and then vacuuming it. We then use a high PH detergent.

When cleaning Needle Point Rugs and End Stitch Rugs, we wash the rug with soap and water. The most important strategy is after the cleaning to block it to make it square again.

We perform a hand wash using a very soft brush for tapestries. We call it wash and rinse.
