Rug Care West Clandon
Oriental Rug Spa offer a specialist Persian, Oriental and Contemporary rug cleaning in West Clandon. 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.
Nepalese rugs are woven fairly coarsely using a Jufti knot. The wool is very thick, giving these carpets a very soft feel. The fibres are occasionally given a lustre wash after construction. This gives a sheen to the appearance of the rug as this process smoothes the surface of the wool. The shiny look will be more obvious from one direction as you look along the rug’s surface. The jufti knot weaving style gives a distinctive linear finish to Nepalese rugs. If you grin open the fibres you’ll notice that the pile tends to run in quite neat lines across the width of the rug. Regular vacuuming from the back is a handy tip, especially with deep pile rugs such as these. This will help to prevent soil collecting at the base of the pile, which can be very difficult to remove.
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.
