WHY YOU SHOULD NEVER LET A CARPET CLEANER CLEAN YOUR AREA RUG IN YOUR HOME.

Vacuuming alone won't remove the soil.  The soil must be removed with special dusting equipment and that can't be done in the home.

We use the RugBadger and it separates heavy sediments and dirt from any area rug and is used prior to the cleaning of your area rug.

PET URINE AND RUGS

In order to eliminate the urine odor, all the urine salts and bacteria must be washed out of the foundation of the rug.  The source of the odor is in the base of the rug - in the foundation.

UNDERSTANDING TUFTED RUGS

Tufted rugs are different in construction and quality then woven rugs.  Each knot on a woven rug is hand tied, but on a tufted rug, each loop is created with a tool called a tufting gun.  The back of the rug is then coated with a latex glue which holds the tufts in place and usually there is a cloth material sewn onto the back to cover the glue.

UNDERSTANDING WHITE KNOTS (RUG FRECKLES OR FOUNDATION KNOTS)

Even if a rug is 100% wool, the foundation of the rug is usually made of cotton.  If a yarn breaks during the weaving process, the two ends are tied together and the weaving continues.  These knots, called foundation fiber knots or white knots (for short) are found in every hand woven rug.  These knots are not damage.  They are a normal part of the weaving process.

UNDERSTANDING ABRASH (WHY DOES MY RUG HAVE STRIPES?)

Abrash is a word that describes the natural variations in color and texture caused by differences in the textures and dyes.  This causes a striped appearance in areas of the same color on a rug.  These strips are not considered a flaw in the rug but are a natural result in the way the rug is woven.

UNDERSTANDING TEA-WASHED RUGS

Tea-washed rugs are very common in today's marketplace.

A tea-washed rug gives rugs an antique sepia tone effect.  A tea-washed rug has been over dyed with a brown or golden dye or treated with a chemical to darken the rug and make it look older.

VISCOSE RUGS = ARTIFICIAL OR "ART" SILK

Rugs made of viscose are technically viscose rayon.  Advantages of a viscose rug is that it is incredibly soft.  However this softness is achieved through chemical processing that makes the fibers very weak.  It is one of the most fragile fibers on the market today.
