Persian Rug Repair Project


Persian rugs can last several lifetimes if cared for properly.  Proper care of a Persian rug entails regular cleaning (both at home and periodic professional cleaning), regular inspection, and annual rotation (so that sun fading and wear is even).  Sometimes, however, even the finest most well cared for Persian rug can show signs of damage or wear.  In these instances, it may be necessary to have the Persian rug repaired or restored.  The difference between the two may sound like semantics, but the two are distinct.  Sometimes a Persian rug repair will be the same as a Persian rug restoration.  Other times, however, a Persian rug repair will only minimally address the damage while a Persian rug restoration will be more extensive and designed to bring the rug back to what it once was.  It is important to understand the difference between the two when contracting a Persian rug repair or restoration specialist.  The time involved may be drastically different, as well as the associated costs.
