This is a European Tapestry which was on our client’s wall for over 35 years. We very carefully vacuumed the left side of this beautiful wall hanging. The dust over time creates an oily, sooty type film across the fibers of the tapestry. Vacuuming is the most important first step for fabric cleaning. The next step is breaking the dirt’s and oils, then actually finding a way to remove them from the fibers without harming, fraying, or breaking them. We are very patient and work in a precise manner to obtain the results we are always striving towards.
