This wear and tear are what makes each carpet unique. With over a million different types of Persian rugs in the market today, it is important to know exactly which type of rug you have before calling us.

Carpet cleaning can be performed by hand or by machine. Many companies use both methods to achieve the same results. If you are unsure of whether to clean by hand or by machine, our professional experts are happy to advise. Because antique Persian rags are so delicate, they require careful handling and preservation in order to continue their beauty.
Many people do not realize that when they buy an old oriental rug, there is a good chance that part of the rug has been damaged. In order to determine the severity of the damage, it is necessary for you to contact antique rug restoration professionals in your area, who will take pictures and measurements. Once your damage is assessed, it is important to then discuss how you would like the rug restored. Often times, this means having the carpet professionally cleaned using carpet shampoo, as well as antique rug restoration professionals using techniques such as knot cleaning and fading.
One of the most common problems with oriental rags involves the moths that develop on the fabric. The moths feed on the material, feeding off the fibers until they are dislodged. These can become a big problem, as the larvae will start to grow into the fabric, causing significant wear to the fibers. In order to prevent the moths from developing, it is important to make sure the base of the rug is thoroughly cleaned using a mild disinfectant solution. Then, using a soft bristle brush, gently remove any remaining moth eggs.
Once you have dealt with the base, it is important to address the problems in between the layers of the fabric. As time goes by, dirt will build up between the threads, causing them to loosen and fray. This can cause the rug to lose its beautiful look. Professional repair services are able to deal with all of these issues, resulting in your carpet looking like new.
