Rug Care Twyford
Oriental Rug Spa offer a specialist Persian, Oriental and Contemporary rug cleaning in Twyford. 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.
Wool and Silk Rugs
Pakistani Bukhara rugs are one of the most common rugs that we see in our rug care facility. They are reasonably priced and have a sheen that catches the eye which is appealing to the interested buyer. The wool is heavily lustre washed after the rugs have been woven, which gives the pile an overall shine when looking from one direction. It’s a common misconception that these rugs are made with a silk pile as the wool has a slightly different feel and also due to the sheen. Occasionally you will find wool and silk fibres used to weave the face fibres. The silk is normally used to outline motifs and devices to help them stand out. The foundation is usually constructed with cotton. The design of these rugs is influenced by rugs produced in Turkmeinstan.
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.
