Each rug is inspected for any pre-existing conditions. Many times soil can cover up dye lot variations (abrash), fibre staining, prior dye bleeding, worn areas, or white knots that become “uncovered” after the wash. Some of these are weaving characteristics (abrash and white knots), and others are damage that can possibly be repaired or reversed.
Once the inspection is complete and the wash proceeds, the first step is dusting. A rug can hold up to one pound of dirt per square foot before it “looks” dirty. Flooding a rug with pounds of fine grit and dirt in the foundation creates mud, so dusting is an important first step to the wash process.
The dyes of the rug are tested for colourfastness. If the dyes are not colourfast, then the rug is bathed first in vinegar to set the dyes during the wash process. The rug is then given cold water, mild shampoo bath, using soft brushes for mild agitation.
Then the rug is soaked for a certain length of time, depending on how much surface soil and spotting needs to be gently worked out and rinsed from the rug’s fibres. The rug is thoroughly rinsed with water, and then the water is gently squeezed from the rug until the rug is in just a damp condition.
Many rugs are laid out flat to dry. Hanging textiles up when we can lead to too much strain on the foundation of the rugs. Air movers are used to helping facilitate drying, without the use of high heat so there is no worry of shrinkage.
Upon a first wash, it is typical for a rug to shrink slightly (less than an inch) – just as cotton and wool clothing does in even a cold water hand wash. And as with throwing wool or cotton in a high heat dryer, you know this shrinks natural fibres. That is why some rugs are laid out flat to dry.
Fringe tassels are washed an additional time after the bath. The tassels are then dried. The rug is given a final grooming with a horsehair brush.
