Antique Rug Restoration
It doesn’t matter what you paid for your beautiful antique rugs because eventually, even the best ones start to show signs of wear and tear. The wonderful thing is that once these antique rugs have been restored, they can be enjoyed by your children and their children.
Antique rugs, just like any carpets, are subjected to all kinds of activities that could damage them. Lots of foot traffic, furniture being dragged over them, stains and moth damage.
When your Rug’s Pattern is Gone
Luckily there are antique rug restoration experts who understand these rugs well. At Antique Rug Cleaning, we’ve got decades of rug restoration experience behind us. We’ve seen rugs that are so worn that they’ve hardly got their design or pattern anymore.
We know precisely what to do to restore the colors and patterns. Not only that, some rugs still look good in the center, but the edges and fringes need repair. Antique rugs that experience a good deal of wear and tear often have the fringe starting to unravel and then it will need to be repaired.
Repairs and restoration can take quite a bit of time. With some rugs, people can try to repair the damaged fringe themselves. Most regret their decision and the additional damage to the rug. With a valuable, handmade antique rug, handing it in to professionals like us is the only way to ensure your rug is restored to its full beauty.
Restoration by Hand
All of us are extremely knowledgeable about all of the rugs we work with – this comes from us being a family owned business with knowledge passed down from several generations. There’s nothing about Oriental rugs we don’t know.
The ends with the fringe are also repaired by us, and if there is a damaged fringe, we can work specifically on that area or on any other area of your rug. With Oriental rug restoration, we return your rugs 100% restored, bright, fresh and odor free.
Reweaving – it’s a Common Task
If we are to do reweaving, we assess the rug first, because if the holes are caused by moths or beetles, we deal with that problem first before tackling any repairs. We choose the correct yarn for this purpose which can be wool, silk or cotton. We know that sometimes we have to even rebuild the structural elements so that new warps and wefts can be attached.
We’ve got the means to ensure original knots and patterns are preserved. We place your rug onto a loom so that our skilled weavers can re-stitch the loops by hand.
Rug reweaving is something we’re constantly busy with. We’ve seen rugs damaged by moths and then our weavers restore the rug to its original looks. When weaves are destroyed by daily use, burns or spills, the knots loosen and if not attended to immediately, the entire rug starts to unravel. With us, a rug can be rewoven so that it can give you many more years of pleasure.
