Persian Rug Cleaning London

When it comes to cleaning handmade Persian rugs, it’s crucial to understand the unique nature of each rug. Persian rugs come in a wide range of styles, wool qualities, and dyes, making it essential for the cleaners to possess extensive knowledge about them.

A thorough understanding of the rug’s dye quality is essential. It’s crucial to differentiate whether the dyes are colorfast or prone to running when they come into contact with water. Additionally, cleaners must be well-versed in determining the appropriate washing method based on the specific wool quality. When dealing with stains, the cleaning process should be tailored to ensure effective stain removal without damaging the rug.

In the case of antique rugs, cleaners need to accurately gauge the amount of pressure the rug can withstand. Identifying potential weak spots and addressing them to prevent damage during the wash is a crucial aspect of the cleaning process.

The initial step involves removing embedded dust from the rug’s foundation, which cannot be eliminated through regular vacuuming. This requires vigorous agitation to loosen the dust effectively.

Various washing methods are employed based on the rug’s condition and quality. Each rug is carefully assessed to determine the appropriate cleaning method and the specific agents required.

After washing, it’s imperative to extract as much water from the rug as possible and ensure quick drying to prevent any potential damage.
