Silk Carpet Cleaning
Silk rugs are most often considered some of the finest and most beautiful. They are quite often very pictorial in design. If you look at the back, you will see the very tiny knots. However, these days you find many rugs that are sold as silk but are not real silk. The most common are mercerized cotton and many kinds of fake silk that are billed as viscose, faux silk, bamboo silk (any silk with a word in front of it). These fake silk are actually man made, and often a wood pulp (paper) that is VERY problematic for cleaning. We do NOT recommend any form of viscose as a
good rug. They are sometimes sold as awfully expensive but are not quality. However, they ARE very soft and shimmery, and can look very nice. These are NOT durable. Cleaning both the real silk and the fake silk (viscose) take an advanced level of skill.

8 Steps To A Sparkling Clean Rug
Imperial Rugs 8-Step Process
1 | PRE-INSPECTION
Carefully look over rug, checking for anything specific to the rug; damage, repairs needed, stains, how the rug was made and what fibers were used. This helps us determine how we will proceed.
2 | PRE-TEST
Carefully test ALL colors for possibility of dye bleed and determine which solutions we work best.
3 | DRY DIRT REMOVAL
This lengthy process thoroughly removes the fine dirt particles that accumulate over time. We use a gentle vibration on the back of most rugs. Many rugs have several POUNDS of dirt and ground in particles removed!
4 | PRE-TREATMENT, APPLY SOLUTIONS
When there are stains, heavily soiled areas, urine stains and odors, or the fringe is dirty, we pretreat these areas giving them extra time and attention which is crucial to the success of the cleaning. Solutions determined as safe in pre-test.
5 | GENTLY BRUSH
Gently brush fibers to loosen dirt. This step can be from a gentle brush on a buffer to handheld brushes, depending on the sensitivity of your fibers or possible age related weakness. The focus remains on safety and the best results possible.
6 | RINSE
Using our sloped cleaning surface, we thoroughly flush all contaminates from your pets, kids, food, and dirt out until the rinse water is running clear. For most rugs, steps 5, 6, 7 are repeated several times. (Check out our cleaning video and see the complete flushing from top to bottom of this process and the amazing amount of dirty water rinsed out!)
7 | WATER EXTRACTION AND DRYING
We gently use specialized extraction system and finish removing excess moisture to facilitate rapid drying in the final drying phase when we use our fans.
8 | DETAIL & PREP RUG FOR PICK UP, DELIVERY OR STORAGE
Inspect the rug for remaining spots, brush out the fringe, vacuum lightly and brush nap as needed to give uniform appearance.
