In the cleaning of area rugs, one has to know the type of fibers used both in the face yarns as well as the support structure. Many rugs are also a combination of fibers such as wool and silk or wool and jute. Besides the face yarns, there is the backing to consider. Some may have a synthetic backing while others could contain cotton, jute, or other natural fibers. Knowing what is in the backing can be crucial in the cleaning process. Other factors including the differences in how a rug is put together, hand-knotted, machine-made, woven, or the types of dyes used in the face yarns of the rug.
Other considerations are the general type of area rug. There are border rugs and needlepoints that will require a blocking process to maintain their shape and prevent shrinkage and rippling. Or it could be an antique Aubusson that needs some special care due to its' age. Some area rugs may be cleaned in your home but many will need special attention that can only be given by trained technicians in a facility like our carpet cleaning plant.
