When there is a change in the original pile direction of the rug, pile distortion will occur. Whether your carpet or rug has begun to bloom, crush, or there is fuzzy pile, it is considered pile distortion. The most common causes for pile distortion are caused by the accumulation of soil and foot traffic. The pile and texture distortion can however be corrected or improved during the cleaning process. It is important to always correct or improve the texture distortion of the rugs as it will help you save time and money in the long run.
During the cleaning process, the silk face yarns, the soft wools and the thick wool pile are usually subject to texture distortion during the normal cleaning process. This is usually evident when the rug is quite soiled. Another cause of pile and texture distortion is using the incorrect spotting materials and procedures. Correct procedures and spotting of materials don’t lead to pile and texture distortion.
Shading of the rug usually occurs when the pile of the rug is not uniform and lies in several directions. When this occurs, the light is usually not reflected uniformly. This usually creates a patch of light and dark areas. The light and dark areas can be corrected by either grooming or cleaning the rug. It is important to note that this does not always correct shading issues.
Our technicians make every effort to correct shading, texture distortion, and the pile distortion during and after the rug cleaning process. There are instances where the distortion cannot be corrected to match the original appearance. This is especially true for rugs that are very sensitive, like silky rugs. Silky rugs usually have unavoidable texture issues even after carefully cleaning them with the less invasive cleaning methods.
