The longevity of your rug(s) exquisiteness and durability is contingent upon the way it is cared for and maintained through professional cleanings. Handmade rugs should be washed every three to five years depending on the amount of traffic endured. Professional cleanings are highly recommended for handmade rugs as certain chemicals and even high temperatures of steam can cause rug(s) to be damaged. For instance, chemicals/high temperature steam can cause dyes to be diluted, damaging the color of your rug(s). In addition, chemicals/high temperature steam can break down the yarns which can cause the rug(s) to become brittle which in turn causes the rug(s) to wear. Furthermore, rug(s) should never be soaked by water or washed by carpet cleaners.
Shiraz Rug Gallery offers professional hand washing of handmade and machine made rugs. We also offer pick up and delivery of your rug(s) for wash and restoration.
The vast majority of stains are removed by dissolving them with a solvent. The solvent that is used depends on two factors.
