Oriental Rug Spa offer a specialist Persian, Oriental and Contemporary rug cleaning in Hackney, London. 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 423150. You can drop the rug into our wash facility or arrange a time for us to collect from 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.
Khan Mohammadi Rugs
Khan Mohammadi rugs are the finest woven of all Afghan rugs. Unusually they are named after the weaver rather than the town or city where the rugs are woven, as is the case with most other handwoven rugs. They are very distinctive with the dark rich reds, browns, blues and blacks. Grey fringes are a distinguishing feature amongst Khan Mohammadi rugs. One of the issues with the fringes is that they are prone to curling, especially at the corners. The rugs are woven with woollen pile and woollen foundation. They are prone to colour bleeding when wet, particularly the dark blue side cords. With this in mind, it would be unadvisable to try washing in the home as the extended drying times would exacerbate the dye movement and could cause permanent damage. The correct chemistry is essential when washing these pieces to control the sensitive dyes.
