These types of rugs are delicate and offer different challenges when cleaning is required. Challenges can include: dye running, shrinking, balling and fibre degeneration with aging.
Your Devine Rug Care Team also pride themselves in their colouring process for rugs that have run. When some rugs get over wet or are water damaged, the colours can become unstable and run into each other (colour run) ie red or dark blue can run into the white or cream patterns in the rug. Complete Rug care use a specially made stripping agent which will remove the colour run and return the white pattern back to its original state. This process is all hand done sometimes using a eye dropper and extraction machine, and is very time consuming, but for hand made expensive rug the process is worth doing. Incorrect cleaning processes (or over wetting and then hanging a rug) can cause the white or light coloured cotton fringes to get colour run. This can also be removed using a special colour stripping agent, cleaning and then treating the rug with a dye fixing process to stop further colour run.
