I've got an old rug that's been in storage for quite some time now; it's in pretty bad shape, what can be done?

Don't despair - rugs can be restored. If you have a very valuable oriental rug, you will no doubt be somewhat skeptical as to how to care for it - even if it looks in pretty bad shape - for fear of making it worse. Well, help is at hand. There are ways for you to restore your precious rug. There are a few dos and don'ts though. First, much as your instincts may tell you otherwise, do not attempt this restoration using any type of bleaching agent. Potential problems with this include: over-whitening, fiber damage; other damage to dyes. Instead, you should use reducing agents, as well as standard coffee stain removers and browning treatments, all easily available from your local store. You should either spray these agents or brush applied to the rug's fringes, then extract and dry, leaving the fringes much cleaner. If you have very bad stains on the rugs, other products such as red dye removal cleaning products can be sprayed on and vacuumed off with remarkable results.

Best cleaning and detailed service I have ever had. A++ equipment and Technician. Dried in 8 hrs. As promised!
Diana Rogers
The two young men were polite and courteous. The (old) carpet looks much cleaner than it was. Also, it went fairly quickly. It took quite a while to dry completely though. Overall, I am happy with the experience.
Tracy Washington
I loved the results of my carpet cleaning service! I had been neglecting my carpet and had not had it professionally cleaned in several years. After your agent cleaned the carpet it was beautiful again. I am very happy with the service.
John Byrne
We were very happy with the job that was performed on our carpets. They were professional and everything smelled really good afterward. Their price was much more reasonable and they take care of new customers!
