In this video, you will learn all about antique rug restoration and get to watch a restoration from start to finish.
The process begins with cleaning the rug. Soap and water are scrubbed into the rug gently using a special tool. Once the rug is soaked through, it is rinsed before getting the water squeezed out of it with a squeegee. It is during this step that the dirt is removed and the rug is mostly clean. These two steps can be repeated as many times as necessary, and the rug can also be flipped over to get the treatment on its underside.
