Turkish Runner Washing
Watch Master Textile Cleaner and owner of Doug’s Rug Care, Doug Moerschbacher, thoroughly wash a Turkish rug with his own blend of cleaning and stabilizing products that ensure color fastness. This runner was in the entryway of a busy condominium; rugs in high-traffic areas should be cleaned once a year to prevent damage.
Dirt and dry soils are extremely abrasive and every time you step down on a rug, you grind soil into its fibers. When carpets are left dirty for an extended period of time, the fibers become damaged making your rug look worn, dull or dingy. Regular cleanings prevent permanent damage to the fibers.
