Rug Care Walton On Thames
Rug Cleaning Walton-On-Thames – Oriental Rug Spa offer a specialist Persian, Oriental and Contemporary rug cleaning and 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.
Tekke rugs are woven by the tribe of the same name. The tribe migrates through Turkmenistan. There are many tribes throughout Turkmenistan including Salor, Saryk, Chodor and Yomut. Each tribe has distinguishing design attributes associated with their weavings. The guls that you can see within the main field are one of those defining characteristics. Gul means flower and they represent a flower viewed from above. The guls in the rug to the left are typical of the Tekke tribe. Older rugs tend to have fewer guls spread through the design compared to more recent weavings. These designs are widely copied within other rugs, such as those woven in Pakistan. The rugs known as Bukharas typically display this type of design.
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.
