Dogs seem to be having great taste in rugs this year. We received a Tabriz rug from a customer that needed a good cleaning since it had been about 3 years since its last one; this same rug also needed some more attention due to the owner's pet. The owner and her husband had gone away for a weekend getaway recently and while they were gone their dog showed his unhappiness on their beautiful Tabriz Rug. Take a look below:
The pictures above show the dog damage as well as the wear that had happened to the selvages(the sides) due to vacuuming. The first step was to secure the damaged areas so that everything would be secure for the deep cleaning process. Take a look below:
With the deep cleaning the rug was now clean, sanitized and deodorized. Now it was time for the repair; we had our master weaver do his magic and all everyone had to say with the results is, "Wow!". Take a look below:
The owner could not believe the outstanding work we did on the reweave. The sides also looked great after they were redone by hand and the colors of the rug were now vivid and beautiful from the cleaning. The rug now has a new lease on life and the owners now have to have a good heart-to-heart with their dog. We were glad we could help our customer with their damaged/dirty rug and we want to do the same for you! Bring in your dirty and damaged rugs so we can give it the Rug Ideas treatment.
