Fringe help!

By Cory | September 13, 2016

From years in the business we come into contact with a lot of rugs with fringes that are missing, tearing, or just dingy. There are many ways that you as the owner can prevent some of the wear and tear and discoloring of the fringe.

3 quick tips on keeping those fringes in good shape:

  1. Never vacuum the fringes with your carpet vacuum. this will pull and tear your fringes!
  2. When you vacuum your rug vacuum parallel to the fridges
  3. When you try and clean the fringes never use any chemicals that are harsh. One of the worst things you can do is use bleach or an oxidizer these products will harm your thread and can actually cause them to become brittle and break off.

 

Here at Middle GA Rug Spa we can help you when you are needing a clean. Our skilled professional technicians who are trained and certified will work with your rug to make sure it receives the best treatment!

Beware when spot cleaning your rug

By Cory | March 10, 2015

beware when spot cleaning rugs

2015-02-24 10.29.55   Here is a beautiful family heirloom rug that came in recently for cleaning.  As you can see, one of the panels had some color running in the flowers.  This is a good example of what can happen when you try to spot clean in your home.  This rug is handmade with cotton fibers.  Our colorfastness tests indicated that the dyes were stable throughout the rug.  So why do we see dye migration at these flowers in the red and blue?

Some DYI products contain harsh alkaline or acidic properties that can de-stabilize the dye sites on a textile.  This dye migration probably occurred during the drying phase after someone used an inappropriate cleaner to address a spot or spill on this rug.  Natural fibers like to be in an acidic environment so avoid alkali if at all possible when spot cleaning.  Another tip, is to diaper the rug from both sides with a white towel so that if dye begin to migrate they will absorb into the towel rather than adjacent dye sites.

There are other possibilities that could cause the situation you see above but I wanted to share with you the most common cause we run into.
