    What You Need to Know About Keeping Rug Fringe Clean


    Posted by

    Fringe adds an interesting and aesthetic element to many types of rug. When the fringe is bright and clean, the entire rug looks good. However, when the fringe starts to yellow or brown or gets soiled or matted, it can make the entire rug look dingy.

    After all, the fringe lays directly on the floor, and traps dirt and debris from all foot traffic. When dirt and dust particles get tracked onto the face of your rug, they are well hidden by the wool or silk fibers, which are dense, and often dark in color, and pull the dirt down into the base of the rug. When the same dirt and dust gets tracked onto the fringe, it remains visible. Soil shows easily on the fringe, which is almost always cotton, and almost always white or extremely light in color.

    What do you do to clean and brighten the fringe? The truth is, it can be tricky. Fringe should not be vacuumed with a beater bar. Fringe, especially long fringe, will get tangled in the beater bar of your vacuum. Instead, brush the fringe lengthwise with a soft-bristled brush to loosen and remove excess dust and soil. When your fringe requires help beyond simple brushing, it’s best to call on your local rug cleaning experts. Fringe cleaning tips can be helpful to rug owners, but depending on the type of rug you have, certain tips can do more harm than good. For example, when the fringe is brown or heavily soiled, professional-grade cleaning solutions will likely be the only way to remove the soil and lighten the fringe. Rug owners should steer clear of bleach and other standard cleaners. Persian and Oriental area rugs are exquisitely crafted, and made from the finest materials, and harsh cleaners can wreak havoc on the rug’s fibers. Leave fringe cleaning to the rug cleaning professionals!
