The fact that viscose is a lot weaker than silk and it resembles paper more than it does regular carpet fibers should suffice to convince you that you should not use unprofessional cleaners or your regular DIY cleaning solutions. Silk fibers can withstand roughly 2000 stretches before breaking, while viscose fibers can only handle around 70 stretches. In other words, viscose is a lot more disposable and it is incredibly difficult to clean, wash, vacuum, and restore. Replacement is almost always necessary when any sort of damage has been done to such a rug. This could mean a small liquid spill could easily cause irreparable damage.
Viscose Carpet Cleaning Solutions
While some steam cleaning procedures can be used to clean and remove stains from soft and delicate viscose rugs, extra attention needs to be paid during the process. Steam is generally extremely damaging for viscose fibers and you should only work with experienced viscose rug cleaners with plenty of expertise in the field.
Oriental Area Rug Cleaning only works with IICRC-certified cleaners with lots of years of experience under their belt who continuously undergo additional training to stay up-to-date with the latest cleaning methods and technologies in the industry. We have cleaned hundreds of sensitive viscose rugs and carpets over the years and we have developed special cleaning protocols that are comprised of full rug assessments, color run tests, custom vacuuming, and steam cleaning solutions that are perfectly suitable for these exact types of fibers.
Rayon Rug Washing and Vacuuming
Using improper washing techniques with too much water will cause the fibers to become oversaturated and irreversible damage is a potential and highly likely consequence you should expect. This is why it is important to only work with professional viscose rug cleaners who know exactly what they are doing. More often than not, a rug made of viscose that has been immersed in water will require replacement. The same goes when a large amount of water is wrongfully used during the washing protocol.
When such a rug is subject to a large amount of moisture, it will trigger the cellulose to turn yellow or brown, while adding to more structural damage, eventually leading to the need to replace the rug. Our technicians know just how much water will suffice and how much water could endanger the integrity of the fibers and the whole structure of the rugs.
We mostly use dry vacuuming as it is one of the safest and most efficient ways of removing deeply embedded dirt, debris, and other microscopic pollutants from the fibers. This way, you will be able to enjoy the softness and cleanliness of your rugs for a longer time. Nonetheless, all dry vacuuming will need to occur with extremely gentle moves that will not cause the fibers to stretch too much and break. Powerful suction vacuums and the powerhead or beater bar should be avoided, as they will almost always trigger fiber pulling.
Stain Removal and Fabric Protection Application
If you are looking for ways to expand the lifespan of your precious viscose rugs that are part of a family heirloom or you have a few viscose carpets that you would love to enjoy for a few more years, give us a call. We also specialize in fabric protector applications and we know how to gently apply several light layers of protectant and let it dry in between applications to prevent color runs and fiber distortion.
These protectors are excellent for better tackling liquid spills and preventing them from turning into irreparable damage.
