Rug Cleaning in South Kensington SW7
We’ve been working for clients in this part of west London since we first learnt our trade. It’s a wonderful place to be picking up carpets from because it boasts some of the best examples of super sized wool and silk rugs in the world. We’re very lucky to be able to work on these beautiful masterpieces and restore them to their former glory.
From Afghan To Ziegler, Your Rugs Need Special Care
Natural wool and silk rugs are woven all over the world and each has it’s own characteristics which dictate how it must be cleaned. However there are certain cautionary steps which we follow no matter what type of rug we are cleaning.
Safety First.. The Dye Test
Whether it is an old bright red Afghan or a modern Ziegler with muted colours, the most important process we carry out is a dye test prior to washing. This gives us an idea about how stable the dyes are going to be in the wash so that we can decide on the safest bespoke cleaning process. Safety always comes first, then we concentrate on getting the best results possible.
We Remove Dry Soil Before Wet
A rug’s worst enemy is dry soil which works it’s way into the pile, through to the foundation. As the rug is walked on, this dry soil literally cuts into the soft natural fibres and slowly wears them down. This is especially true where the pile is deep and therefore traps more soil. We make sure that we remove all dry soil before washing. If this step is missed the soil will turn to mud when immersed. We use a variety of methods to perform this step depending on the construction, age and fragility of the carpet.
Try to imagine using your home washing machine without a rinse step. Inadequate rinsing out of emulsified soil is the most common issue we encounter when we wash a rug that was previously cleaned by another company. We rinse until the water runs completely clear to ensure that there are no residues left behind to re-attract soil.
