Expert Cleaning & Repairs of Persian Carpets
We expertly repair genuine Persian & Oriental carpets and rugs. Should anything occur which is out of the ordinary - and with which you are unable to cope – we urge you to get in touch with us without delay!
Mishaps are what happens to the best of us, no matter how 'cautious' we may be. Visitors arrive with their family and friends, and things 'happen'. Sometimes there is no fault, it was an accident, like when your 'best friend', even as a trained dog, chews your carpet or the housekeeper spills cleaning liquid on the carpet, or even some water never quite dried and mildew has now formed, or your carpet is moth eaten - which happens with pure wool articles. A burn mark from a cigarette or hot iron is also not uncommon. And these 'accidents' can be extremely annoying indeed.
Moving furniture - even by a professional company - can cause an 'accident'. But never fear, we are here to let you know that these are repairable - in most instances.
However, if a Persian or Oriental carpet or rug is beyond the stage of repair, we will inform you honestly before commencing any repair work. This is a given.
Bring your carpet/s in for an assessment and a quote and we will take it from there. If you are unable to bring them in and you reside within a 30 km radius of our showroom, we will arrange collection or an on-the-spot assessment and if accepted, will arrange for the carpets to be collected and delivered once complete and fully dried.
Professional Repair of Persian & Oriental Carpets
It goes without saying that this undertaking should be carried out only by a professional. The materials Persian and Oriental carpets are made of - natural cotton and wool fibres and dyes - cannot be easily obtained outside of the 'industry', and then there is the knotting knowledge and experience to consider too. Matching colours, knots, techniques and so on ...

Professional Persian & Oriental Carpet Cleaning Services
When it comes to cleaning your Oriental or Persian carpet, it is best to have it done by the professionals, for a number of reasons. Of these, knowing and understanding the very essence of these hand-knotted beauties goes a long way to knowing how best to clean them. As we are dealing with natural fibres; wool, cotton and sometimes silk as well as natural dyes and colours, using the correct cleaning agents and knowing how to thoroughly clean the carpets - yes, experience really matters - will be a good investment in maintaining and extending the lifespan of your Persian or Oriental carpet.
Your carpets and rugs should be professionally shampooed or cleaned by our Victor Lidchi’s cleaning/repair dept., every 2-4 years, depending on the traffic they have been exposed to and how dirty they have become. This is a specialist job – PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO IT YOURSELF!
Professional Persian Carpet Cleaners
Preserve the value, beauty and integrity of your Persian and Oriental carpets by professionally cleaning them. Expert cleaning services go beyond just cleaning the carpet - we handle the natural fibres with care and respect - and our knowledge and experience stands us in good stead. Ridding the carpet of the embedded dirts is the first thing taken care of, which is done with soft compressed air, starting with the back of the carpet, over a gridded floor. Turning it over it is then thoroughly vacuumed before the actual cleaning process begins. Treatment of the fringes is a somewhat overlooked yet very important aspect of Persian carpet cleaning. And we know this well.
When and How Often Should Persian Carpets be Cleaned?
Hand-made rugs should be professionally cleaned every two to four years, depending on how and where they are being used. Rugs used in heavily trafficked areas, such as an entry hall, may need to be professionally cleaned every year. Waiting too long between cleaning makes deeply embedded soil tougher to remove completely, especially with thick rugs. Allowing grit and soil to remain in the carpet acts as an abrasive that negatively affects the carpet over time and therefore can reduce it's lifespan.
Having your carpet professionally cleaned means that it is returned to you completely dry, clean and treated - with no chance of mildew or soap residues (from a home cleaning) because of dampness - which can cause it to resoil quickly.
