Viscose Rug Cleaning – Understanding the Viscose Fiber

Viscose rayon is a man-made fiber made from wood pulp though other materials may be used. It is basically modified cellulose.  Viscose is very similar to cotton and silk. (Cotton is also made of cellulose). Viscose falls somewhere in between a natural fiber and a man-made one. The natural sheen of the fiber has earned it the term art silk for artificial silk. Unlike cotton, Rayon can lose its strength when exposed to moisture and has a high tendency to color bleed. When cleaned with high temperature or incorrect cleaning chemistries, the fibers can disintegrate.

Taking Care of Your Beautiful & Delicate Viscose Rug – How to Best Protect It!

The Viscose fiber is moisture absorbent (more so than fiber) and has moderate resistance to acids and alkalis. The dyes used in the fiber can bleed and experience color change. It is not recommended to use a Viscose rug in a high traffic and wet areas like hallways, front entries or kitchens. The term get it “professionally” cleaned could not be any more profound than in the case of Viscose Rugs. Traditional wool rug cleaning and methods does not apply either. New fibers require new technology to properly clean and care for the viscose made rug.

The Beauty & Effectiveness of Using RevitaRUGS to Clean Your Viscose Rug is Science and Simplicity.

The water used is laboratory filtered and applied with exact pressure amounts using a computer controlled system which automatically allows for varied rug thicknesses during the wash system. Rinsing and cleaning are taking place at the same time to avoid oversaturation, a key element in protecting the Viscose Fiber. The majority of moisture content is removed immediately in a pre-drying stage, minimizing the exposure to wetness. The last stage of drying takes place in custom engineered drying rooms which properly conditioned air is recycled 5 times an hour, creating ideal environment for effective and fast drying.
