Persian Rug Restoration - After
After professionally cleaning the rug, we were ready to commence with the restoration. We always recommend cleaning a rug before undertaking any repair or restoration for a few reasons. First, yarns used in restored areas should match the clean yarns of the rest of the rug. Second, dirt particles embedded within the pile of soiled rugs can rub against the fibers and compromise their integrity thereby increasing the chances of damage from occurring.
After cleaning, we rebuilt the warp and weft that had been damaged. We then reknotted the pile. The picture above is of the restored area, as seen from the front side of the rug. Below is a picture of the same area as seen from the reverse side of the rug.
And, just a reminder, below are pictures of the damaged areas (from the front and back) before our restoration. --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
