Understanding Carpets: Types and Materials

To appreciate the nuances of carpet restoration, it’s essential to begin with an understanding of the various types of carpets and the materials from which they’re made.

Construction Methods

Tufted Carpets: Predominant in homes and businesses, tufted carpets are celebrated for their manufacturing efficiency and versatility in textures and qualities, making them a popular choice across Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia.

Woven Carpets: These carpets are revered for their traditional craftsmanship, including the intricate patterns of Axminster and the robust durability of Wilton, a testament to the artistry found in carpet making.

Knotted Carpets: Known for their exquisite designs, hand-knotted Oriental and Persian rugs are treasures in any setting, embodying a timeless elegance.

Needlefelt Carpets: A marvel of technology, needlefelt carpets offer unparalleled durability, making them ideal for commercial and high-traffic environments in Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia.

Hooked Rugs: With their charming, simple designs, hooked rugs bring a handmade touch to interiors, whether crafted by artisans or produced by machines.


Wool: The pinnacle of luxury, wool carpets provide unmatched durability and a natural resistance to stains, making them a sought-after choice for discerning homeowners and businesses alike.

Nylon: Celebrated for its resilience and vibrant colour retention, nylon carpets are a practical and durable option for high-traffic areas.

Polyester: Known for its lush feel and vibrant colours, polyester offers a cost-effective yet plush carpeting solution.

Polypropylene (Olefin): With its moisture and stain resistance, polypropylene is perfect for indoor/outdoor use and areas prone to spills.

Acrylic: Offering a wool-like feel at a more accessible price point, acrylic is a viable option for those seeking style and moisture resistance without the wool price tag.

The Art of Carpet Restoration

Carpet restoration is both an art and a science, requiring a deep understanding of the various carpet types and the specific challenges they present. Approved Group International excels in this domain, applying tailored restoration methods that breathe new life into carpets.

General Stain Removal Principles

  1. Act Quickly: Addressing spills and stains promptly can significantly increase the chances of complete removal.
  2. Blot, Don’t Rub: Gentle blotting absorbs the spill without spreading the stain or damaging the carpet fibers.
  3. Test Cleaning Solutions: Before applying any cleaner, it’s crucial to test it on an inconspicuous area to avoid potential damage.
  4. Use the Right Cleaner: Selecting a cleaning solution that is suitable for both the carpet material and the type of stain is essential for effective stain removal.

Specific Stain Types and Restoration Methods

Water-Soluble Stains: A mixture of non-bleach detergent or white vinegar with water can address stains from beverages, mud, and washable ink effectively.

Oil-Based Stains: For synthetic carpets, a grease-fighting dishwashing detergent is ideal, while wool and natural fibers benefit from dry cleaning solvents.

Organic Stains: Cold water is crucial for fresh stains like blood, while hydrogen peroxide can tackle stubborn organic stains on light-colored carpets.

Acidic and Alkaline Stains: Baking soda or white vinegar solutions can neutralize and remove acidic and alkaline stains, respectively.

Special Considerations by Carpet Type

Each carpet material demands specific care to avoid damage during the restoration process. Approved Group International’s experts are adept at handling these nuances, ensuring that whether your carpet is wool, synthetic, or made from natural fibers, it receives the best possible treatment.
