Persian rug repair is a skill that the owners of Oriental carpets and rugs must have. Persian rugs are delicate looking but hardy pieces of floor textile that are an artistic manifestation of the culture of Iran. The hand-woven exquisite motifs and the bright colors generally used require regular and systematic cleaning and repairing so that they last for several generations. Persian rug repair should be taken up as a project at home only if you have the know-how, the tools needed, ample time and patience because otherwise you are likely to do more harm than good.

The priceless heritages from the East are esteemed possessions that the owner would prefer to retain as collectible items rather than for their utility worth. Persian rug repair services are scattered over the length and breadth of the nation. You could contact a rug restoration company locally or on-line who will carry away the soiled/damaged rug and deliver it looking as good as new. If you prefer to do it yourself, remember it can be done effectively through gathering of knowledge using the Internet, asking the dealer or other people who own similar pieces of wonderment.

Often small bumps are noticed on the surface of Persian rugs that were caused due to uneven surface at the place they were originally woven. The bumps or creases caused by folding can be rectified by simple stretching technique. Damage can also occur due to your pet chewing the rug’s edges, heavy traffic, placing heavy furniture on the rug or attacks by moths or mildew. Considering the type of havoc, the Persian rug repair specialists may have to unravel a part of it or construct the base and weave through the warp and weft securely to seem beautiful once again. There are ways to salvage the Persian rugs and preserve them for the years ahead.

“Dear Haim,
It has been so very busy here, thank God, that I never had the chance to formally thank you for the absolutely beautiful job you and your team did with our rugs and sofa. I know when a job is superior and such is the case, much to my surprise, upon entering the apartment after you completed the work.

Thank you again – you will ever be our service provider etc…“

Sunlight Customer, Oriental Rug Cleaning

A few weeks ago, I had Haim Shemesh clean my sofa & I was very pleased. He was professional, the price was reasonable & my sofa looks brand new again!

Sunlight Customer, Oriental Rug Cleaning

I had Haim Shemesh from Sunlight clean all my area rugs. He did a fabulous job! They are all handmade Orientals and he took them to a place that soaks them in a tub and hand washes them the way it’s supposed to be done. They look so much better and brighter Haim came to my apt to give me an estimate, took the rugs, then delivered them back to me a week later. He even helped me set them back up, including moving furniture around to do so. Prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend doing business with him!
