The cleaning/washing process for wool and silk area rugs is not subjective in terms of which process a particular rug should receive. There is no doubt in the rug cleaning industry that immersion washing is the most thorough cleaning method possible. Immersion cleans the entire rug including the foundation which consists of the weft, warp, and fringe yarns. Immersion washing can restore a rug to its original beauty and luster.
Each rug is tested for colorfastness prior to determining a cleaning process, not all rugs can be immersed. The overall condition of your rug, its origin, colorfastness and construction will provide us with the information we need to determine a cleaning process for your rug. Unlike clothing we do not have the luxury of referencing a tag on the back of a rug for cleaning instructions. A certified rug expert will outline cleaning instructions once a pre-cleaning inspection of your area rug has been completed.
