About the Carpet Repairers and Restorers heading in Yellow Pages®
A carpet repairer specialises in the repair of damaged carpets. They address the types of problems that carpet cleaning and steam cleaning can’t. Restoration is generally done on older or more antique and valuable carpets.
There can be a number of reasons a carpet needs repairs. It can be due to water damage, mildew, mould or fire damage. It can also be due to bumps and wrinkles appearing because the carpet has stretched over time. Holes, tears, cigarette burns and split seams are also common problems which can all be repaired.
Carpet restoration is generally undertaken for valuable carpets, often handmade, such as Persian rugs, antique carpets and kilims. Restoration to as close to their original condition as possible is paramount. This can involve careful hand cleaning, reshaping, invisible mending and colour restoration. These carpets are treated as a work of art, often including mounting and framing the finished work.
