Rug Repair & Restoration
At carpet culture we recommend early repair of your antique or Oriental rug is essential in preserving its beauty & value. Our skilled artisans use centuries old Persian practices to preserve & restore your rug.
Re-Weaving of Rug
You should closely examine your rugs & carpets for any sign of wear at least once a year. Any small tears or unraveling ends & edges should repair to prevent future damage to your valuable rug.
Re-Fringing & Binding
Antique & oriental rugs over time have worn fringes can lead damage to the end of borders. To keep the ends of the rugs from fraying & unraveling our skilled workers can repair & re-fringe your rug either by putting new fringe yarns in replacement of the missing area or we add artificial fringes by hand. We match original fringes as closely as possible. We recommend binding if the sides of the rugs are worn out.
Restoration of Mothproofing
The moth larva can silently destroy wool fibers of your rug before you will be aware of their existence. In dark, undisturbed areas where a rug gets little traffic & is not often vacuumed, thousands of months can effectively destroy an area rug. We recommend moth proofing if you store your rugs for an extended period of time in your home or storage.
Pet Stain & Odor Removal
Our pets are always cute but sometimes have occasional accidents. Pet urine left unattended, can damage rugs & carpets in several ways. The urine smells terrible & untreated urine leave a permanent stains or loss of color in your rug. The germs & bacterial left behind in a rug can spread an unsanitary for you & your family.

Restoration of Worn Corners & Sides
A close examine of your rugs & carpets is needed for any sign of wear at least once a year. Any worn corners & sides should be repaired to prevent future damage to your valuable rug.
Restoration of Moth Damage & Water Rot
A moth-damaged rug is not difficult to repair but re-weaving a large area of moth damage can be expensive. The moths do not eat your fabric or rugs but the females do lay hundreds of eggs. The eggs hatch into larvae & larvae can consume large amounts of wool, silk fabric, feather & fur each day.
A protective surging is wrapped on the sides of any new or Oriental rug immediately after the weaving process is complete.
We can make the repair cost of your rug effective & within your budget if the damaged area of the rug is too big to cover. We select cut pieces from the rugs of similar color; design, weave & age to hand sew into the damaged area of the rug or textile. Incase the re-weaving of missing area of the rug is costly, patching is a practical solution.
Blocking, Stretching & Shearing
The rugs, carpets, flat weaves, needlepoint & tapestries develop wrinkles & lose their shape w/ the course of time. At carpet culture we recommend gentle stretch & block of the rug will equalize tension in the foundation of the rug.
We use special enzyme cleaners that will eliminate odors & stains of any source from humans, animals, food & smoke. Your valuable rugs need special care to ensure long life. All spills should be cleaned immediately to avoid permanent spots & stains. At carpet culture we eliminate spots & stains of all nature professionally & promptly as under:
Mold & Mildew Removal
The leading biological pollutants generated in a home are mold, mildew, fungi & bacteria. It commonly develops on areas w/ high humidity levels, poorly ventilated, dark areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, closets, laundry rooms & damp basements. The mold & mildew release mold spores in the air that can float throughout the house. They can cause severe allergic reactions such as watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, coughing, nasal congestion, and aggravation of asthma, sore throat, sinus & fatigue especially in young children. Upon the inspection of your rug, carpet culture’s technicians will be able to diagnose the problem w/ customize treatment, removing the mold by gentle, organic, chemical-free methods. After the mildew is disposed of properly, we treat the area again to eliminate unpleasant odors the entire process ensures that your home is safer, cleaner & fresher than ever.
When a rug has lost its charm & looks dull because of fading or heavy traffic, we can restore its appearance in many numbers of different ways. We may reptile worn areas by putting wool back into rug along w/ the design & pattern already encompassed in the rug. If the rug is beyond repair, we can spot touch up to match the original color of the rug.
Scotch Guard Protection
Scotch guard is an after treatment that is applied directly to your rug or carpet, creating a shield, which will not allow liquids to penetrate your rug & cause a stain. The best time to apply scotch guard protector is right after professional cleaning of your rug.

Organic Rug Cleaning
At carpet culture we use only organic natural & chemical free solutions for better cleaning. The harmful chemicals can damage delicate weaving in rugs.
Cutting & Binding
The new rugs are precisely made as per the standard sizes used by the designers all over the world. The antique, tribal & oriental rugs have unusual sizes & sometimes cannot match the standard sizes as per your requirement.
The hand woven treasures like abuses, savonneries, textiles, needlepoint’s French tapestries, fine Suzanne’s & other flat type rugs have to be protected w/ a linen backing. Linen is the most durable, rot resistant backing you can use
Rug padding provides a protective floor between your rugs & the floor. A rug pad helps minimum slippage, increases the life of the rug, makes the rugs thicker & more luxurious & absorbs noise. At carpet culture we carry different types of padding’s designed for use on floors & carpeting. We would guide you the best & long lasting padding for your floor.
When an oriental rug is very old & fragile & whenever normal repairs are not enough to preserve its shape, we would suggest applying latex (a natural rubber solution) & reinforce the repairs w/ a linen backing. The application of latex to the back of a carpet followed immediately by the addition of a secondary backing like linen will anchor the rug tufts & stabilize its construction. For very damaged rugs, latex back coating will help maintain your rug size, shape, strength & stretch resistance.
