No Rug Left Behind

No matter what your rug needs are we here at Rug Ideas want to help you find a solution to your problem, whether it be via cleaning, repair or restoration. While we are confident and comfortable dealing with 100 year old antique Persian rugs we also love helping customers with their flokati, shag, kilim, tapestry & machine made/area rugs that need attention as well. Take a look below at some of our services:
Cleaning is usually the first step to help bringing our customers rugs back to life. As third generation rug experts and enthusiasts we know rugs; this is our secret of how we can do professional and expert Oriental carpet, Persian rug, area rug, kilim, and tapestry cleaning. We treat each rug individually and pre-test all your rugs for wear, tear and also bleeding or any other possible damage which may occur to your rugs. We care for Rugs and kilims as these are not mere floor coverings. Each piece is pure art, history and love.
Pet Urine Stains:
We receive many rugs everyday with cat or dog urine stains on them. Don't get mad at your pets, we will take care of the urine stain removal. Give the job to the experts who know rugs and their construction, dyes and the safe chemicals and non-toxic solutions to use. We have this luxury because we are the third generation in the rug business and we have been dealing with rugs since 1953. Let us employ more than five decades of experience to provide you with excellent results.

Perhaps you need a rug appraisal. You might need one if:
1- You have inherited an Oriental, Persian or area rug and would like to know its value.
2- You want to know the value of your rug for trusts or estates.
3- You would like the value of your rug for insurance purposes.
4- You want to buy a rug and would like to know if its price is fair or not.
5- You want to sell you rug but do not know how much it is worth in today's market.
6- You want to give you rug to someone you love and want to know the value of your rug.
Use our top of the line rug pads and underlays for protection of your Oriental, Persian and area rugs and your floor. We recommend these rug pads to our customers to help keep their rugs secure in their place and prevent wrinkling of the rugs. They give you the right type of cushioning and great comfort that you will love the feeling of walking on your rugs.
Water Damage Restoration:
When water damage happens, Oriental and area rugs absorb a large amount of water. In this case high amounts of bacteria will reside inside the pile and construction of the rug. First we extract all the excess water form the rug. This is a very important step as it prevents mold from growing Then we wash the rug with water and soap to get the dirt out of the pile and construction. We let the rug dry in the sun. After this step, we start removing the bleedings and the color run stains with very light and non-toxic chemicals. If needed we restore the colors so your beautiful rug looks nice and wonderful again.
Leather Strip installation: Some of our customers come in with the problem of curling of the sides on their rug. Changing humidity or temperature, as well as storing a rug rolled up, can cause the edges of a rug to curl. Sometimes wefts may shrink and cause the curling on the edges. Using a rug pad help prevent the edges from curling but if it has already occurred we at Rug Ideas have a solution. Leather strip installation is a great way to remedy these problems.
Spill Protector/Moth Proofing:
Two spray services we offer to our customers are Spill Protector and Moth Proofing. We have tested our latest and most advanced products and we are now ready to share it with our customers. 
With our Spill Protector service you can enjoy your rug with peace of mind knowing that your rug is protected against any liquid spills. The Spill Protector is an odorless, non toxic spray that will give you just enough time to run into the kitchen and grab a towel to remove the liquid from the surface of your rugs if a spill happens to occur.
Moth Proofing is a great service for those who have had moth problems in the past. This spray is also non toxic and is a light coating that acts as a bitterant to the moths; it gives the wool a bad taste to moths, preventing them from propagating on wool that has been sprayed.
Spot Dyeing:
Your rug is too bright and gets dirty too soon and too often, or you do not like the color of your rug; we have a solution. We can dye it and make it look darker without loosing the design. You do not have to change your rug or through it away. We have the artists to do this kind of masking with color fast non-toxic dye stuff. Just bring us the rug, or e-mail us the photo of the rug. We will get back to you with our suggestions and free estimate on the cost of this custom-made job. We will lift up the spirit of your rug.
No matter what type of rug/carpet you have, we at Rug Ideas can help you with our great selection of services to get your rug back into shape, looking great and ready for years of more use. Give us a call or stop by our showroom so we can give our half century's worth of experience to you and your rugs; we want no rug left behind!
