Silk is perhaps the most expensive of all Rug Materials available for carpet weavers. More often than not, when silk is used in the carpet pile, it simply highlights special design elements. There are, however, a number of all-silk carpets from Kashan, Qum, Nain, and Isfahan in Persia, Istanbul, and Turkey. Rugs made entirely from silk tend to be coarsely woven.
Silk area rugs are some of the most precious, delicate, beautiful and outstanding types of carpeting any homeowner could choose. With so many contemporary and antique models to choose from, it can be difficult to make your choice inside a store. However, once your beloved piece is decorating your floors, your main goal should be to focus on preserving it for as long as possible. If you are lucky enough to have inherited an antique handmade silk area rug that has been in your family for many generations, your efforts should be even greater. These rugs are irreplaceable and they carry a higher sentimental value that cannot be bought from any carpet store.
If you are looking for some professional cleaning solutions for your silk rug, no matter how old or new, or you are dealing with some fresh stains you cannot remove on your own, the Oriental Area Rug Cleaning team is here to assist you. All of our technicians are IICRC-certified, which means you should receive high-quality services according to the trade’s regulations and standards every time.
Silk Rugs Are Prone To Damage
- An improperly aired room or a broken HVAC system, a home flood or a spring running beneath your house – these could all cause your silk rug to get covered in mold. It will usually happen gradually, in areas you will have a hard time noticing without careful inspection of the rug, and spread across the entire surface.
- Prolonged exposure to the sun can also cause discoloration or fading colors and designs.
- Spills and pet accidents are also some of the most problematic elements that can cause serious damage to your expensive silk area rug.
- Improper cleaning and maintenance procedures and cleaning products can also affect the integrity of a silk rug.
Expert Silk Area Rug Cleaning Services
Silk area rugs need customized cleaning and only a professional carpet cleaning service like ours can cater to these needs. Our rich experience in the field recommends us as your go-to cleaners whenever you are dealing with a stubborn or extended stain you cannot tackle on your own.
Our cleaning services are initiated with a thorough inspection of your silk area rug in order to determine the exact state of the rug, as well as the nature of the silk fibers, the staining that will need to be restored and any other helpful details. The type of colors and dyes used in the dyeing process, whether they are prone to bleed or not during the cleaning, the existence of other types of fibers – these are all additional factors that will help our experienced technicians decide upon the most suitable and reliable cleaning method.
Keep in mind any attempt to remove an older stain with the help of a stiff brush at home will most likely lead to severe damage that will be more difficult to tackle. We will also perform a color run test on an inconspicuous area on your silk rug and further establish which is the safest cleaning option.
There are other similar elements that only an experienced carpet cleaner will know how to handle the right way, without causing any additional problems. We rely on purified water for the cleaning process and make sure to always give your silk rug the same level of softness that is found in the original fibers. We also use classic area rug cleaning techniques such as steam cleaning, without using any harmful chemicals that are bad for you and the environment.
We strive to successfully restore and maintain your silk area rugs for as long as possible at a fraction of the price you would normally pay to make a new purchase.
