Professional Rug Restoration and Natural Fiber Rug Care Tips

RESTORATION

When it comes to restoring valuable rugs, the process involves meticulous attention to detail and expert craftsmanship. This includes color restoration, patching, re-knotting, and fringe repair. Ensuring the preservation of the rug's original design and integrity is paramount.

Restoration services can also address issues like moth damage, water damage, and pet stains. The key to successful restoration is early intervention. The sooner a damaged rug is assessed and treated, the better the chances of preserving its value and appearance.

In addition to visible repairs, restoration may include re-dyeing areas where colors have faded or been stained. The use of natural dyes is often preferred to maintain the authenticity of antique rugs. We repair the foundation of the rug, which can become weakened over time due to age or improper storage. This comprehensive approach ensures that both the appearance and structural integrity of the rug are restored.

Proper storage of rugs is crucial to prevent damage. If you need to store your rug, it should be cleaned and rolled, not folded, to avoid creases. Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and moisture. Using a breathable fabric wrap can protect the rug from dust and pests while allowing it to breathe. Regular inspections during storage can help detect any issues early and prevent long-term damage.
