Wash & Repairs
Rug Wash - To maintain their original colors, handmade area rugs should be washed on a regular basis. Every one to three years it is recommended that you have your rugs hand-washed by a professional. Never steam-clean or chemically-clean your area rugs. Do not ever put into a WASHING MACHINE or otherwise immerse in water. At Tousi Rugs we use proven effective ancient methods of hand washing rugs at our on-site cleaning facility. We do not use chemicals that can be harmful to your rugs or to the environment. We also offer pick-up and delivery for your convenience. The average turn around time for hand washing rugs is seven to ten days depending on the size of the rug and MORE importantly weather conditions. Please call us if you have any questions regarding your rug cleaning needs.
Rug Repairs-Handmade area rugs can easily be repaired in case of tears or cuts of any size. The process consists of joining the knots together from the back of the carpet with the same material as the foundation of the carpet. Repairing a carpet with silk thread is better, as silk is finer and stronger than wool or cotton. A carpet that has been professionally repaired should look as good as new. At Tousi Rugs we take pride in our reputation for staffing the most professional and experienced repair personel. We import all of our materials such as wool, silk, cotton, dyes, etc. direct from Iran to give your treasured antique rugs the genuine care they deserve. We are proud to announce the opening of our new 7,000 square feet repair site in Westwood, California where you are welcome to walk-in for free consultation and advise for all your repair needs.
