Sharing is Caring, Especially When It Comes to Cleaning

Fringe Cleaning an Oriental Rug

Fringe cleaning is a vital step when cleaning an Oriental rug.  If done improperly, it can ruin the whole appearance of your special piece.  So when choosing a company to do the job, don’t forget to ask all the necessary questions and make sure that they work on the rug carefully, including the following steps:

  • They should set to work on the fringe, combing it out until it is completely separated.
  • Once it is no longer tangled, it should be cleaned thoroughly.
  • Once it is clean, it should be combed again, carefully to make sure it doesn’t become accidentally knotted.
  • No bleaches should be used when cleaning the fringe (this is important).
  • If it is worn or damaged, a specialist should re-wave or replace it.

Experienced professionals know just how important a fringe is to the beauty of a carpet, and will make sure all the above are carried out before your rug is returned to you.
