LA rug owners – Yes, your fabulous old rug can be saved!

Dec 23rd 2015 at 11:08 PM

There’s one thing about a great old rug that can be a real worry – Restoration. The very best top quality rugs need some TLC, and they also need to be restored properly. The simple fact is that the LA environment is a major factor in wear and tear on rugs, and you need to get your rug fully cleaned and restored every few years.

The problem is a combination of environmental factors which turn a rug in to a doormat. Grit, grime, gunk, and organic materials accumulate in the weave. These issues can be mitigated with regular vacuuming, but over time, your rug accumulates deposits of materials like fine sand, which causes it to deteriorate. Other materials may become impacted (compressed) in to the rug, too. If you have some very rough patches on a Persian rug, for example, that’s what’s happened.

The good news is that for most rugs, particularly high quality rugs, these problems aren’t terminal. They’re just annoying. Restoration work will solve them, and this is how it works:

· Full, thorough cleaning by professional rug cleaners. This removes the ingrained materials and returns the weave to its normal condition, as well as fully sanitizing the rug.

· Color testing – Before doing anything else, the rug color dyes need to be checked for susceptibility to chemical issues.

· pH testing – This is a further check of chemical issues to ensure that acidity or alkalinity doesn’t damage the rug.

· Immersion – This “floats” and frees rug fibers, as well as acting as a cleaning process.

This really isn’t something you can do yourself. Fortunately for LA residents, you have a rug restoration specialist company in Agoura Hills, (northwest of downtown LA) which is the leading exponent of rug care in the city. All you need to do is contact them for any kind of rug cleaning or restoration work you need.

Whether you need Persian rug cleaning in Malibu, silk rug cleaning in Westlake, or wool rug cleaning in Burbank or whatever else you want, this is the new go-to, do-everything rug care place in town. Check out their website here at full details of their products and services.
