Brio Carpet Care provides fine area rug cleaning, care and repair services for Persian, Oriental, and Contemporary rugs in Newbury.
All area rugs are cleaned and repaired offsite in our dedicated rug cleaning workshop based near Newbury, and for your convenience, we offer rug collection and delivery throughout Newbury and the surrounding areas.
In our dedicated rug cleaning workshop, we thoroughly dust the rugs using either a mechanical rug duster or compressed air and often a combination of the two methods, to extract all dry soils and dust prior to the chosen cleaning process.
Depending on the type of rug, fibres, dyes, and age we would then use one of the following rug cleaning methods: full immersion rug cleaning - our favourite and the most thorough cleaning process, low moisture cleaning, or even dry cleaning.
Brio Carpet Care specialises in antique and contemporary wool and silk rug cleaning, as well as modern fibres like viscose, Tencel, art silk, mercerised cotton, etc.
Our full immersion rug cleaning process in 10 steps
Our rug cleaning process begins with a thorough assessment to determine the type of rug (hand-knotted or machine-made), fibre type (natural like wool, cotton, silk, jute viscose etc or man-made like nylon, polypropylene, etc), known stains or problem areas. We also test for dye stability to assess the risk of colour run. Based on all this information, we decide on the most appropriate rug cleaning method
Moths are one of the most fierce Oriental and Persian rug enemies, as the moths' larvae feed on the wool and silk fibres, permanently damaging the rugs. If our assesment determines that the rug has an active moth infestation, we would chemichally treat the rug to kill any larvae and moth eggs to prevent any further damage to the rug and of course, any spread of the infestation into our workshop
Often overlooked, dusting is a vital step in the rug cleaning process. Natural rug fibres are great at hiding dirt, grit and dust particles. We remove them before starting the wet cleaning process by placing the rugs face down onto dusting grids and gently beating the back with a dedicated mechanical machine. This thorough dusting procedure removes all foreign particles from deep down the rug pile.
The dust-free rugs are taken to the wash floor where they are immersed in a rug cleaning solution and cleaned with a gentle brush on a rotary rug cleaning machine and then thoroughly flushed and rinsed.
Often made of cotton, oriental rug fringes are in fact an integral part of the rug, a continuation of the rug warps.
The rug cleaning process wouldn't be complete without giving the fringes the much-needed attention. Often fragile, we clean them by hand with an individually tailored cleaning solution for the best results.
As the name suggests, full immersion cleaning means we thoroughly wet and flush the rugs. This is a fantastic cleaning process as long as one has the means to then extract all the water out of the rugs. For this we use one of the most advanced rug cleaning tools, a centrifuge capable to extract up to 98% of the water withon just a few minutes!
All Persian and Oriental rugs are made of natural fibres like wool, cotton, or silk and very often a combination of them. Like for example wool pile on cotton warps.
Because of their nature, these fibres are very absorbent, so professional equipment and special conditions are needed to dry the rugs in optimal time. Leaving a rug too wet for too long could lead to problems like cellulosic browning of the cotton warps and fringes, colour run or dye bleed, and so on.
As explained above, we extract up to 98% of the water with the help of our centrifuge before hanging them in our dedicated drying room.
The rug drying room is climate controlled and equipped with industrial dehumidifiers and fans to continuously circulate dry air around the rugs to complete the drying process in just a few hours.
Although the wash floor gives the most thorough rug cleaning process, just like in carpet cleaning some stains may need advanced stain removal techniques to maximise the chances of complete stain removal.
By this stage, the rugs are clean and dry, but because we like to do things properly we put the rugs through an additional light air dusting process to remove any potential dust particles from the rugs and do a final pile grooming before packing them ready for delivery
All rugs are inspected, rolled up and wrapped in a breathable rug sleeve, ready for transportation.
