Time can wreak havoc on carpets, but fortunately, our time in the trade of fine textiles has also provided us with the knowledge and experience to restore them to new life. In the world of handmade art, there can be no substitution for hand work; all the elements of a rugs’ original production–dyeing, spinning, sewing, and weaving–are also the foundations of its repair. We can treat damage or holes by reweaving matching dyed wool to assimilate with the design, or by sewing the carpet to forestall further loss. All of our processes are done by hand and with extreme care.
When cleaning carpets, we treat each one on a case-by-case basis, making sure to stabilize any weak or damaged areas. After the removal of any dry soil, spots or stains are pre-treated or taken out, depending on their type, and then the carpet is submerged in water and cleaned with specific detergents. We can also target our cleaning process to the removal of odor, the softening of deteriorating or stiff areas, or the modification of color and tone, including color run. We have the experience to clean delicate or fragile carpets, and the facility to clean large carpets, up to 25 x 40 feet.
