Rug Care Westminster
Rug Care West Midlands
Oriental Rug Spa offer a specialist Persian, Oriental and Contemporary rug cleaning in Westminster. 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.
Removing Dry Soil From Rugs
The first stage of our rug washing process is to remove the dry soil which is embedded deep within the fibres. A rug can hold 500 grams of soil per square foot before it begins to look dirty. If the soil is not removed before washing then it turns to mud during the cleaning process. This can lead to extended drying times, cause odours and possible colour-run. Each particle of soil has sharp, jagged edges which cuts away at the fibres as the rug is exposed to general wear and tear. So every time the rug is walked on the soil is acting like pieces of glass wearing the fibres. Vacuuming alone will not remove enough of the damaging dry soil, so we recommend regular treatment at the Spa where we can remove all the particles with our rug tumbler dusting system.
