Professional Silk Rug Cleaning & Care

Regular vacuuming will keep dry soil from working its way deep into the mat where it will begin tearing fibers apart. However, avoid vacuuming the fringe and set the beater brushes at their highest setting or it may agitate the fibers too much and ruin their texture.

Cleaning is necessary when soil buildup affects the look or feel of the rug. It’s easy to tell when there’s too much soil present by picking it up and striking it gently. If this releases a cloud of dust, it is time to treat the material.

Dry stains should be gently removed without liquid if possible. Wet stains should be blotted up and treated with water. This material is highly sensitive to hot water, which can denature the proteins and cause the material to break down. For this reason, washing should always be done with lukewarm water instead. Also, most treatment chemicals will cause damage to the material, which is another reason most people consider consulting with a professional.
