Sometimes the appearance of our rugs and carpets is out of the owners control... especially if they have pets! One of the services we provide for rug owners is pet scratch shaving restoration. Cats especially love to use their owners rugs as a scratching post, causing lots of threads to be pulled out & the result is an eyesore for all. These owners often feel these mangled carpets are totally done for and will often just throw them out thinking there was no hope to save them. Often times it is something that can be fixed, though, and that's where our pet scratch shaving techniques come into play.
With some care and a lot of patience we can bring back the life of these rugs using special tools designed to shave a thin layer of these trouble areas to bring back the consistency of the pile as well as bring back a smile to the owners faces. It's a win/win situation for the owners as not only will the process cost less than replacing it with a new rug but sometimes the piece holds sentimental value that cannot be replaced by a new one.
The pics directly above show the completed process; the rug looks great and is ready to be fully enjoyed again. If someones pets have caused similar havoc on their rugs they can now know there are options to save it with our cosmetic restoration process and bring it back to life.
