Persian Kashan Rug, Carpet Cleaning and Repair at Rug Ideas in Los Angeles

We received a 5' x 7' Persian Kashan rug from a client for cleaning and repair. Part of the fringes at the top were missing and the rug looked very dirty. Kashan is a very famous and old city in north central Iran in the province of Isfahan. Kashan has a long history and tradition of making high quality rugs which goes back to hundreds of years ago.

We hand washed the rug after it was dusted to make sure dust and dry soil was out. Dusting is a very important step that should be taken first in cleaning rugs. Otherwise we give the rug a bath in its own mud.  After our deep hand wash, we made sure that the rug was completely dry. We then assigned one of our technicians to do the re-fringing. Fringes had to be implanted into the rug foundation one by one. It took us a day and a half to finish the repair job.
The result was very good and looked like the damage never happened to the rug. Our client was very happy with the quality of the re-fringing job and our customer service.
