There are a number of rugs on the market that need to be checked and cleaned in their own way, most are sensitive to wet cleaning (hot water extraction) and react well providing adequate training and experience for the technician. Rug fringes will sustain the most damage and often require a high degree of care while cleaning, the roller bars on upright domestic vacuum cleaners can cause much of the damage reported.

Some people are tempted to use bleaching chemicals, this can also cause problems, bleach can damage cotton fringes, and if you’re upset, you can wick into the rug body’s key colored fabrics, causing discoloration.

Most rugs available today are manufactured by machine, but there are still plenty of outlets on sale that have hand-made rugs, this type of rug can be influenced by color running, the correct tests should be followed before cleaning.

Also kilim style rugs (thinner) may pose cleaning problems, when wet they can’ buckle’ along the edges of the rug, cleaning when under tension is advisable in this situation.
