Area rug cleaning tips
Spot Cleaning Spills
1. The key here is to act quickly. Do not let the spill sit on the fibers as to penetrate the fibers themselves or leak down to the bottom of the carpet. Many rugs use backing materials that will wick up the spill so act fast!
2. Using a towel immediately to blot the spill. DO NOT RUB or you can make the stain worse. Your goal here is to soak up as much of the spill as possible without pressing it into the rugs fibers.
3. If the spill is colored and you are concerned about it effecting the rugs fibers, use some water to dilute the stain and blot.
4. You can use a soft bristle plastic brush and use a mix of mostly water and a small amount of mild soap and gently scrub the area and then rinse with clean water.
5. Finally blot again and then allow the rug to dry before being used again. If your rug still needs to be cleaned the best step is to give our professionals a call. We will take every step possible to clean and restore your West Bridgewater, Massachusetts rugs back to their original beauty!
Common rug materials
Most vintage rugs are comprised of two parts. They carpet fibers and the foundation. In most cases the foundation of the rug, also called the warp and weft, is typically made of cotton. However, it is not uncommon to find wool or silk. The pile is the carpet fibers you see that make up the designs and the most common materials used here are silk, wool, cotton.
Silk: Depending on where your rug originated from, it may contain silk as the pile material. Silk is far more expensive to use and therefore less common. The benefits of silk is that it is both strong and fine allowing for extremely intricate designs.
Wool: This is the most commonly used antique rug material. It was favored as a material because it is soft, durable and easily available when they were made.
Cotton: Cotton is generally used in the foundation of rugs. However, some weavers (such as the Turkmen) use it to introduce white details, creating a contrast in color and texture. Cotton is sometimes treated and used to create a silk like appearance.
Area rug FAQs
How often should I have my rugs cleaned?
Using home vacuums alone won't keep up with high foot traffic and over time soils will find their way deep into your rugs. We highly recommend having your West Bridgewater, Massachusetts rugs cleaned every six months or less. This will also greatly improve your indoor air quality.
How can I fix a snag in my rug?
Never pull on a snagged rug fiber. Instead, lift the fiber and clip it right at the source.
How do I store my rug?
First, make sure your rug is clean before you store your rug! Once clean, roll the rug and then wrap it in a heavy duty plastic. It is usually advised to use a moth repellent inside the plastic. Secure the plastic with tape to ensure it is sealed against pests.
What is a woven rug?
A woven rug is manufactured using a mechanical loom with yarn that is interwoven. They can be flat or raised pile. Some are made using synthetic fibers which increase the rugs durability but can also be made from organic materials. Some rugs are also hand woven and typically more expensive, use organic materials and do not last as long.
What is a tufted rug?
If you are looking for a soft / plush rug then you want one that is tufted. They are usually produced using a tufting gun by hand. They are considered to be a little easier to produce than a woven rug. The tufting gun pulls the carpet fibers through the backing in loops and are locked in place with a rubber backing. This style of rug will show texture and patterns in the different pile areas and is suggested to be placed
in lower traffic areas.
What is a printed rug?
Printed rugs simply have a patter or design sprayed on them with a combination of dyes and set with steam and heat. These are the most affordable type of rug and usually what you find in discount stores.
What is a flat weave rug?
Flat weave rugs are created on a loom using a process that is not as labor-intensive. Typically made from wool or cotton, their looped construction creates a flat, thin style of carpet. This type of construction is considered versatile because they are often reversible.
