Cleaned your rugs lately?
If your Handmade rug is in daily use, over time dirt and grime tracked in by feet and pets build up in its fibers. This weakens the rug’s structure and can create places where tears begin. In addition, bacteria and germs are harbored, adding to any allergy triggers in the area.
Thoroughly cleaning your rug will help it keep its luster and ideal shape - and make sure your home’s inner space is as fresh as possible for you and your family.
Getting to the bottom
The first step in deep cleaning your rug is dusting. Far from working as a home vacuum cleaner, this powerful process forces out soil and in-ground debris embedded in the very foundations of the rug. You would be amazed to see the amount of grit and dirt released.
Afterward, stains (pet and otherwise) and spots are specially treated. Grime, bug infestations and allergens like mold and mildew are washed away. Drying in a temperature-regulated room makes sure that your Handmade rug is treated to a veritable spa for rugs.
Cherished rugs expertly repaired
Traffic up and down the same routes (which will happen in a hallway or from the sofa to the door, for example) will create localized wear, thinning the fibers and dulling the colors.
This can leave your Handmade rug looking worn and dingy. Not to mention that spots becoming threadbare are more likely to develop into holes. Instead of deciding to retire the rug, bring it in for a repair.
We evaluate every rug brought to us for repair, letting you know exactly what can be done to bring it back to its original, beautiful state.
- Holes can be woven in or patched
- Edges and binding can be re-woven
- Peeling and cracked backing can be replaced and re-tufted.
- A wrinkled, warped rug can be stretched and blocked to regain its shape
If your rug has extensive damage, resizing can create a new rug, by cutting it down (in consideration of the pattern), rebinding and fringing.
Make your rug new again
When the (generally) natural fibers of a handmade rug come into contact with direct sunlight, pet urine, moth larvae or other organic substances, alterations to the fibers can begin.
Even with immediate cleaning attention to the marks, fading, deterioration and tiny holes may appear, all of which must be treated in order that irreversible damage does not develop any further.
