When there is a change in the rugs original pile direction, then pile distortion will occur. Bloomed, crushed or fuzzy pile is usually considered as pile distortion. The most common causes of pile distortion is the accumulation of the 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 because it will help you save time and money since you will not be required to replace it sooner.
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. The other causes of pile and texture distortion include the incorrect spotting materials and procedures. Correct procedures and spotting of materials don’t lead to pile and texture distortion.
The shading of the rug also called the pooling of the rug usually occurs when the pile of the rug is not uniform and lies in a number of 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 not always corrects the shading.

Our technician make every effort to correct shading, texture distortion and the pile distortion during and after the rug cleaning process. There are instances whereby the distortion cannot be corrected to match its 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.
