Rug Types

Rug classification is generally divided into three main categories: Persian and oriental rugs, handmade rugs, and machine made. The Persian classification has more to do with traditional weaving and many are handmade. They are referred to as woven because the manufacturers consider their rugs a work of art and mainly come from Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan and to some extent India, Morocco and Libya, among other countries dotting the Middle East. Handmade rugs are sourced from all over and are made by a combination of hands and special sewing machines. Machine rugs are just that, made by machines and are created from synthetic fibers.

The Services Defined

Some cleaning methods use enzymes and detergents. The advantage to this is the advanced science that goes into ensuring the detergents are safe for the environment. Another popular method is steam cleaning, which sanitizes and rejuvenates your rugs. Rugs that are properly cared for and only need a quick cleaning receive dry cleaning methods, which uses nearly no moisture yet leaves your rugs as beautifully cleaned as the steam cleaning option.

Signs of Mold on Your Rug

Not only rug with ketchup or coffee spots in your house that can be a problem. Any mold item in your home can cause health problems for you and your family. And if you have asthma or allergies, mold can be especially dangerous. So how can you tell if your rug is full of mold? Here are a few signs to look for:

  • First, take a close look at the color of the rug. If it's started to turn green or black, that's a good sign that mold is present.
  • Second, sniff the rug. If it has a musty smell, that's another sign of mold.
  • Third, feel the rug. If it's damp or wet to the touch, that's yet another sign that mold is settled down in rug fibers.

If you see any of these signs, it's time to get rid of the moldy rug and have mold testing for your home. Don't take chances with your health!
