Thorough cleaning, repair and restoration for Chinese rugs
China has produced hand-knotted woven rugs for centuries. Their soft pastels create a look of quiet elegance. Vintage Chinese rugs’ luxurious feel and gorgeous colors and designs are meant to last as a mainstay of decor in your home, and perhaps eventually a family design heirloom.
Our care of Chinese rugs in NY & NJ is knowledgeable and skilled. We clean, repair and restore amazing Chinese rugs to their glory.
Chinese rug remedies that work
We can heal sick Chinese rugs. Among the many types of majestic Oriental and Western rugs we handle - Persian, Tribal and Navajo, to name a few, a huge, elaborate Chinese dragon motif commands respect. Our cleaning methods are tailored to each rug we handle, whether natural or manmade fibers.
As the initial part of the cleaning process, dusting expels all the ground-in dirt, grime, organic matter and grit that has collected deep in its weave and fibers. Handwashing, spot treating and more combine to bring out the best in your Chinese rug.
Natural cleaning solutions are how we help to doubly take care of your home - first by bringing back a beautifully cleaned, groomed and fresh rug, and also ensuring any products we used leave no harsh chemical residue.

Cherished Chinese rugs, expertly repaired
Not everyone has the knowledge and experience to repair Chinese rugs. Flat Rate Carpet has both. We offer expert repair of Chinese rugs in NY & NJ. We use both classic and modern methods to turn back time on your valued rug.
When we receive rugs for repair, our first step it to give it a cleaning treatment, in order for the true scope of any damage or problems to be made obvious. Once it is cleaned and dried, we can have a look at the structure, elements and coloring.
- Structural and elemental repair:
Holes, fringe and binding can, in general, all be repaired. Either a hole will be re-woven, or a patch created. Fringe can be strengthened with overcasting, or replaced altogether. Edges and binding can all be done up to look as if there was never a problem.
- Restyling your Chinese rug:
A warped or crooked rug might be the result of loose or cracked backing, which can be replaced. Wrinkles and folds can be blocked back to smoothness. A highly damaged rug can be turned into a smaller one, by resizing - giving a new shape with the fitting sides and ends.
Return your Chinese rug to glory
During its long life, a beautiful rug can be exposed to many elements: sunlight, pets, people, organic matter of all sorts and different liquids. When some of these comes into contact with a rug’s fibers, if quickly treated on the spot may cause no lasting damage: spilled water, crumbs, dirt, etc. But pet urine can attack fibers, creating discoloration. And direct sunlight over the course of time will fade a rug’s bright colors.
One of the main elements of Chinese rugs are their intricate patterns in wonderful colors. When you notice your rug’s colors have altered, we offer highly-specialized color restoration service in NY & NJ. We can evaluate the changes and talk to you about options in addressing them.
