  • How do rugs get cleaned? What goes into a rug cleaning process?
    There are several factors which affect how your rug will be cleaned, including size, origin, weave techniques, fiber content, age and dyes. In our initial visit at your home or at our cleaning spa we thoroughly inspect your Oriental & Persian (e.g., Kerman, Tabriz, Kashan, Sarouk, Heriz, Esfahan), Chinese or Tibetan rug, then we carefully analyze the fibers the rug is constructed from and test the rug for color fastness of dyes. After the initial inspection our rug cleaning experts will pick the most appropriate method to clean the rug at hand.
  • Can I get rug fringes / rug edges / sidecords repaired? Why do those damages occur?
    Yes, absolutely. Getting fringe damages and sidecord damages repaired as quickly as possible is of utmost necessity to preserve your antique treasures: Hand-knotted Oriental rugs have a foundation which is kept together by wefts and warps which in turn get secured at the outer ends of the rug by the sidecord and the fringes. Keeping the fringes and sidecords intact is relevant, because they will prevent the rug from unravelling. Despite the durability of antique Oriental & Persian rugs, they will show wear and tear over time. In other cases such as, fringe damages, sidecord damages caused by pets, furniture tear damage, they also need to be controlled and repaired before the damaged area extends into the actual rugs’ design. In both depicted cases your valuable antique rug can be repaired and restored by our SoCal Rug Masters craftsmen.
