Precious Treasure

Two weeks ago a client brought in three very precious treasured rugs she inherited from a dear friend who pass away.

They were all for cleaning and two were for repair. This one, that I am highlighting today, is a handmade type of rag rug and is very loved.

The edges were a little frayed and it was a bit faded from use. We gave it a good clean and then we put a binding around a four sides to stabilize the rug. The client was very happy with our cleaning and repair work.

Her beautiful rug can be used everyday without worry of it snagging and pulling apart. Plus she will no doubt think of her friend every time she sees it.

That is the best part of my job to help preserve a memory for someone. Area rugs are not just something to protect your floors, they are works of art and more importantly works of love.

This is the rug after cleaning and repair. It is just beautiful!
