Best Antique Rug Cleaning Service in Dublin

We clean all types of antique rugs from our Dublin-based facility in Rathcoole
An antique rug is so much more than a piece of home decor. It often carries an heirloom value attached to it, as people have a deep emotional connection with a rug that belonged to their forefathers. And if you have purchased an antique rug, you know how expensive it is, and how majestic it looks when spread on the floor. Back in the day, these rugs used to be a symbol of status and opulence, and even in modern times, they have retained their charm.

When you have a vintage carpet or rug at home, it requires some extra TLC. The intricacies on the rug make it nothing short of a piece of art, and without regular care, the artefact will lose its lustre. Besides regular maintenance at home, you should opt for professional rug cleaning occasionally, to ensure that the carpet stays intact for a long time to come.

What Is an Antique Rug?

As you can understand by the name, an antique rug is something quite old. But how old does a rug have to be to become 'antique'? Experts say any carpet or rug made 80-100 years ago can be called vintage or an antique piece. And of course, they can be older than 100 years too.

For a piece of fabric that has existed for so long, it's quite evident that it needs special care so that wear and tear can be minimized. These rugs have a rich artistic value, as well as a high price value in the market, both because of their antiquity, as well as craftsmanship. If you happen to be in possession of an antique rug, make sure you're tending to it properly, because it's truly an asset worth being proud of.

How Often Should You Clean Your Antique Rug?

At home, you can vacuum your antique rug regularly, to prevent the accumulation of dirt and dust. And for deeper care, you must send your rug to a professional cleaner every 1-2 years, depending on your preference.

What Is the Best Way to Clean Your Antique Rug?

There are multiple ways you can keep your rug prim and proper at home. By following these methods, you can prolong the life of your antique rug, and prevent any risk of permanent damage to the rug.

  • Vacuum frequently to remove dust, dirt, and any external elements that might get accumulated on the rug.
  • Rotate the rug in different directions, so that foot traffic is evenly distributed on different parts.
  • Protect your rug from heavy sunlight to prevent discolouration or fading.
  • Try to avoid stains as much as possible.
  • Even if a stain tarnishes the rug, don't try to clean it on your own using homemade remedies.
  • Place heavy furniture away from the rug.
  • Schedule a professional rug cleaning service with a skilled carpet cleaner, every 1-2 years.

Let us give you a small glimpse of how we deal with antique rug cleaning:

Taking care of the fabric types

Rugs are made of different kinds of fabrics, and each one of them requires a different approach for cleaning. Only a trained professional can decide what works best for your rug.

Our experts at RugSpa can handle even the most delicate rugs with great efficiency, ensuring that there is no colour bleed. We know how to bring back the lost aesthetic appeal of the rug and give it a clean and polished look.

Effective Stain Removal

Stains on an antique carpet is not a pretty sight. It not only makes your rug look untidy and unkempt but also comes with a bigger risk of damaging the fabric of the rug. We would advise you to stay away from DIY cleaning tricks, as they will do more harm than good. Any random chemical component cannot be used on a rug– only an expert knows how to handle a difficult stain.

At RugSpa, our trained team will examine every part of the rug and identify the type of stain. Accordingly, they will decide upon a method of cleaning that will be suitable for your rug. By effective identification and planning, we can achieve impressive results with even the hardest of stains, while keeping the quality and beauty of the rug unaffected.

Skilfully handling dry dirt

The major amount of dirt that your rug attracts is dry in nature. They are carried through air, and everyday usage, and create a layer on the surface of the rugs. When this accumulation goes on for a long time, the dirt starts to penetrate deep into the fabric, and the rug starts to look dull and dirty.

Our experts pay keen attention to every corner of your antique rug and effectively get rid of all the dry dust. As this is a crucial task, simple vacuuming won't solve this issue. So, if your rug has been looking unusually dull and faded, it's probably time to head to a professional rug cleaner.
