Properly caring for a Persian carpet involves much more than just keeping it clean. In fact, it is very important to keep your carpet clean through the application of stain removal, spot cleaning, odor control, stain lifting, and vacuuming throughout the life of the carpet. If you are interested in purchasing Persian rug restoration services, then it is a good idea to ask the dealer or manufacturer if they recommend a specific company or professional for your needs. By doing research on the internet, you should be able to find a number of reputable companies that can perform all of your carpet care needs.
One type of damage that often occurs with Persian carpets is the presence of a water stain on the backing called a sieveline. When this happens, the fibers at the bottom of the carpet become separated from the backing and start to break apart. This can result in a very distorted appearance of the carpet depending on how bad the damage is. In order to fix this, you will need to have the area that has the water stain removed, which requires some heavy-duty equipment. The area will first need to be cleaned and any hazardous materials removed before the repair can take place.
Folding rags can also become damaged when handled improperly. A typical example would be when the wrong type of knot is used to sew the fringe to a backing and this then causes the rug to be pulled out of shape and damage. It is important to always make sure that all the knots that go into your repairs are done correctly and that no other rags or backing material to come into contact with the repair while it is being made. If the wrong materials come into contact with your completed rug repairs, you may find that your work cannot be completed and the repair becomes invalid.
