Oriental Rug Repair and Restoration

We at NYCleaners understand that your oriental and antique rugs hold not only decorative value and many memories, but also are expensive and thus, need to be well maintained. If you find your carpet damaged by holes, moths, unraveling or other problems, there is no need to worry. When you leave your rug in the care of our capable team, we work diligently to restore and completely rejuvenate your oriental carpeting through our 8 step system.

Rug Inspection

Our trained professionals will bring your Oriental rug to our shop, where they will scrutinize each and every corner and thread for damages. They will make note of anything found, and be sure to handle all issues, so that your carpet comes back to you looking like new.

Mothproofing

Sometimes when carpets are packed away for a long period of time, they become infested with small critters. With our mothproofing techniques, we will locate and remove any pest populations that have taken up residence on your carpet. Then your rug will undergo a thorough cleaning, to ensure that these unwelcome guests stay far away in the future. It is also a good idea to routinely inspect and clean your carpets with NYCleaners to prevent any moths from re-entering the fabric.

Rug Patching

Sometimes, no matter how careful you are with your oriental rug, the years will get the better of it, wearing away some of the fabric and forming holes. However, this is easily dealt with by our talented team. We will gently rework the fabric and use techniques appropriate for your material to repair and patch any holes.

Rug Fringe Repair
