Rug Cleaning of Silk Rugs

Rug Cleaning of Silk Rugs

Silk rugs can be a complex and delicate piece to care for.

To keep a silk rug looking beautiful, it is important to learn the basics of cleaning and caring for soiled rugs. At AllAces Cleaning & Restoration we are committed to providing quality cleaning services with our experienced rug cleaners and technicians.

Recently, mercerized cotton and rayon are used to replace silk’s lustre and feel. These rugs are subject to pile distortion when cleaned or spotted. In addition, some of the dyes are not colour-fast. As a result, silk and artificial silk are prone to shading, water marking, sun fading and discoloration.  Please note that Modern Persian silk rugs are almost never colour-fast.

At AllAces we minimise the risk of damages with our silk rug knowledge expertise

To minimize the problems associated with cleaning silk textiles, our expert rug technicians will choose the most suitable cleaning method for your individual rug based on its age, current condition, spots, stains and degree of soiling. Invasive cleaning methods may be required to restore the appearance of extremely soiled rugs; however, the problems described above will be exacerbated.

Our cleaning method and how we help you keep you silk rugs in optimum condition 

  1. To make the rug soft, the silk needs to be washed with cold water and milk wool safe products.
  2. They are then neutralized, dried, and wrapped to ensure it kept in good condition.
  3. Professional cleaning of a silk rug cannot be completed in your home as it is a tedious and long process which can take up to two days.
  4. In the first day, the silk rug has to be washed over night and left to dry in our humidity controlled drying room.
  5. It is then napped and softened on the second day.

For silk rugs with grime and dirt, more steps are taken to clean them. Some silk rugs with urine damage can make the dyes run.
