Oriental Rug Spa offer a specialist Persian, Oriental and Turkish rug cleaning in Godalming, Surrey. We also offer a rug repair service. If you own a dirty or soiled rug that needs professional cleaning, then why not give us a call on 01276 423 150. We can arrange collection and delivery for you. The rug wash process required can differ from rug to rug, so we offer various methods of rug cleaning, from full immersion washing to dry cleaning. All rug fibres can be cared for – wool, cotton, silk, viscose, rayon. We can carry out a pet stain and odour treatment, moth treatment and apply a fibre protection to resist against soiling and staining. We have extensive experience with cleaning antique rugs and rugs with unstable dyes and offer a rug repair service, including fringes, sides and pile reweaving.
Machine Made Rugs
As the name would suggest, machine made rugs are constructed using an automated device, as opposed to hand made rugs, in which every knot is tied by hand. From first glance the rug in this picture may look like a genuine hand made Persian carpet, but on closer inspection there are some tell-tale signs. If the machine made rug has a fringe then it will have been added after the rug was constructed and will not be an integral part of the foundation, as with hand made rugs. The sides also tend to be over-stitched with machine made rugs. The knots on the back of machine made rugs are more orderly and precise compared to the hand made variety. The best quality machine made rugs are constructed using Axminster or Wilton looms, and are usually produced in Belgium. The woollen rugs are the ones to choose due to the hard wearing nature of the pile.
As with all hand knotted and machine made rugs, cleaning should never be attempted in the home using detergent based solutions which could compromise the dyes. Professional cleaning would be recommended to prolong the life and maintain the appearance of these wonderful pieces of floor art.
If you have a machine made rug that would benefit from a spa treatment, then why not give us a call on 01276 423 150 to get a quote and advice.
