Oriental Rug Cleaning/Repair Texas

Vacuuming Oriental rugs regularly is the best way for them to look beautiful and last longer. Dry particulates make up 80 percent of rug soil. These particles act like sandpaper on rugs and cause them to wear. Spills and pet accidents should be treated immediately. Blot again with a mixture of equal parts vinegar and water. The bleach in over-the-counter spot-removal products is too strong and aggressive. These spot removers leave behind a soap residue which can cause rapid soiling when used directly.

The Oriental Rug Importers of America recommend that hand-made rugs should be cleaned every two- to four years. Rugs with heavy traffic areas might need to be cleaned once a year. Rugs that are not cleaned within this time frame become ingrained with soil that is almost impossible to remove. Extra difficult to remove is soil that has been deeply rooted in thick rugs.

Oriental Rug Cleaning

Oriental rugs should only be cleaned at home in extreme cases, like excessive weight and size. The rug will retain dirt and residue from in-home cleaning. The rug will quickly resoil. It is not possible to clean fringe in your home. Poor drying can cause mildew.

You might be tempted to do the rug cleaning yourself. Oriental rugs need a gentle but effective cleaning method. A professional rug cleaner in Midland TX is trained in the care of fine Oriental rug fibers. Many people attempt to clean rugs by themselves. They use too many harsh chemicals and utensils that can cause damage to the rug.

Fringe Repair

Most fringe is damaged by manufacturing damage, vacuuming, or normal wear. When a rug has been vacuumed, shedding fringe becomes more apparent. The sticky gunk that held weak fibers together was removed.
It is impossible to make weak fibers stronger but they can be concealed or replaced. There are four types of fringe repair.
*Matching yarn weaving
*Attach pre-made fringe
*Turn the fringe under your rug
*Secure ends using stitching

Reweaving matching yarn

New yarn is weaved into the Oriental rug. Sometimes yarn can also be used in fringe knots. It can also be used to make the ends of rugs. You can also re-knot the nap if it is worn.

Attaching Premade Fringe

The best way to repair a machine-made rug is to attach a new fringe. It is an economical way to prevent the end wear in a hand-knotted rug. To sew the fringe, most commonly, a fringing device is used. For a hand-knotted rug, a carefully hand-sewn fringe is an attractive alternative.

Turning Under the Fringe

People love to see fringe hidden under rugs. Most hand-knotted rugs today have no fringe. For high-value rugs, it is a good idea to cover the fringe that has been turned down with a hand-sewn cloth. You can remove the stitches if the owner would like to display the fringe. You can keep the end finish of a new rug in place by trimming the fringe and applying an adhesive.

Secure Ends

The nap can be kept from falling out by hand or machine stitching. This method is inexpensive and can be used until the owner invests in permanent repairs. It does not affect the appearance of the rug by locking the ends.
