A client brought in an old Persian Kashan rug they had in the family. The rug was bought by his father decades ago in Iran. It was dirty and dusty, and needed professional deep cleaning. Part of the fringes at one end was also damaged.
We hand washed the rug by sending it through our 10-step process. Our professional deep and hand washing process which is different from others works in the following way:
-First we inspect incoming rugs to determine the best way to clean/restore them, and then we take digital photos (before & after). Rugs are dusted to loosen/remove the dirt, and dust.
-A thorough water bath rinsing follows and the final step is natural drying.
Our technique is superior to others as we do not do dry, steam, or surface cleaning like wall-wall carpet cleaners.
After the cleaning, one of our master repair personnel on site did the re-fringing and repair of the damaged end. He had to find the right kind of cotton thread as regards with the color, thickness, and the construction to match with the other parts of the fringe at the same end.
The result of the repair came out very good and we cannot wait to show the rug to our client. If you have a damaged rug, bring it in or send us a couple of pictures for free consultation and a quote. You can also call in to discuss the options. In many cases, there maybe more than one option for the repair.
