Cleaning Silk Rugs
Silk rugs are the among the most luxurious types of rugs. They are soft, expensive, and often very intricate. If you have a silk rug then you probably want to take good care of it and get it cleaned by the best of the best.
Silk and Rayon Cleaning Procedure
Silk rugs originate from China and Turkey where rugs were woven from the threads of silk worms. Today modern silk rugs are made from silk threads or rayon.
Since pile distortion is the biggest issue when dealing with silk and rayon, we wash these rugs by hand instead of with a rotary. If the silk is inspected and found to be very sensitive we will dry clean the rug with organic solvents instead of water. This is not necessary in most cases.
Every rug is inspected for pile distortion pre-clean, shading, and is tested for colorfastness. See the stunning results we have produced below.
