Wilton Rug Cleaning

cleaning Wilton rugsThe Wilton weave is often used in high quality, machine loomed wall-to-wall carpeting woven with wool yarns.

The weave allows the manufacturer to vary the pile and yarns to create beautiful patterns and nuanced shades. For example, the iridescent gold diamonds in the field of the rug at the right are silk.

When a Wilton weave broadloom is made into a rug, an interior designer will often specify a border for the rug. This type of rug is known to area rug cleaners as a “bordered Wilton”.

Since wool is an absorbent fiber that needs rug washing to be clean, the area rug cleaners must know how to block the rug after cleaning to remove the buckles so the clean rug will once again lie flat on the floor.
