Excessive use, UV (ultraviolet rays), dust, and infestations can damage or stain a wool carpet. Professional carpet restoration processes include anchoring a floor covering, performing a visual inspection, and using repair and color matching processes.
The Transport Of A Carpet
Wool is a material that can be much more resilient to damage and stains than inexpensive synthetic floor coverings. In spite of this, wool carpets may incur issues. When a professional carpet restoration process is going to be performed, carpet specialists may request that a carpet is transported to a restoration facility. This facility may be part of a carpet manufacturing plant or may be set up independently and used solely for repairing and cleaning carpets.
A carpet specialist may treat all different types of carpet fibers or may perform services for a distinct carpet type. A carpet should be rolled up and transported to a facility. If a carpet will be transported with other materials or placed inside of the bed of a truck, a clear protective film should be secured around the carpet. This will prevent the carpet from becoming more damaged or soiled while it is being transported.
The Repair And Color Matching Processes
A board or a line is used to drape a carpet during an initial inspection. Smaller carpets may be laid along the flooring, prior to visually inspecting them. The fringe that comprises a carpet may be inspected first. This material may border one or more sides of a carpet. The style of a fringe will be reflective of what type of repair process is conducted. A fringe may be sewn onto a carpet or may be woven into a carpet's design.
Both sides of a wool carpet will be inspected for damage. A pest infestation, liquid spills, and heavy foot traffic may have stained or damaged carpeting. Spot repair processes can be used to restore a carpet that is minorly damaged. A wool carpet that has undergone extensive damage may require the use of machinery. Machinery, including sewing equipment, may be used to restore carpet fibers and backing materials.
A color matching process will aid with reversing signs of UV damage. This type of process will also aid in eliminating stains that have discolored a floor covering. The color matching process may involve the use of cleaning agents and dyes. A wool carpet's makeup will be closely inspected, to determine the exact type of carpet fibers or dye variety that was used to make a floor covering. Afterward, a color specialist will treat the carpet fibers that have become discolored.
