Moroccan Rugs and Kilims Cleaning Los Angeles

We sometimes receive Moroccan kilims and rugs for cleaning and repair. If these pieces are not washed by a professional, some colors may run and bleed. We had a customer few weeks ago who had washed her Moroccan kilim in her bathtub to save money. She messed the colors up and learned it the hard way. When she brought her kilim in, it was full of dye bleeding and bubbles. We corrected that for her. Many of these Moroccan flat weaves and kilims need repair and securing the fringes at least on one end. The wefts become lose after using the kilims on the floor and vacuuming them; therefore they need to be secured so the knots do not come off.
