Specialty Rugs

You spent a lot of time picking out colors, design, materials, and the knot counts when you decided to invest in a high-end rug. As such, it follows that you would do the same thing when picking out a professional to help clean and maintain the rug. Handwoven rugs like Bokharas require special care, and the area rug cleaner should be familiar with the rug fabrics used to create the beautiful, masterpiece.

Oriental and Persian rugs of this caliber require very delicate cleaning methods. The method should protect against fraying and other common problems that can come up with area rugs. Not all of them should be put into a rug wash. The dyes used to create specialty rugs are often derived from plants and insects. Sometimes they are synthetic but in either case, they may not be indelible. If the colors can bleed it is important that a low moisture method is employed to make sure the colors to not run and damage the rug. In addition, putting heavy equipment on rugs or cleaning them out on the driveway is a good way to harm the rug. Heavy equipment can destroy the alignment of the rug, and cleaning a rug on a driveway exposes it to chemicals and oils that can be absorbed into the fabric causing permanent damage to the materials. Quality area rug cleaners will not offer to clean your rug outside on your driveway.
