Try At Home Service
We enable you to take one of our carpets or rugs home with you to see how it looks in your home, and ensure you are completely happy with it before making your purchase. This service is free of charge.
You may have a rug or carpet in your house at present, or may have been left one from a friend or relative and are unsure of the value. We can help by valuating the piece, either in person or you can email a picture to us. Please contact us for more information.
We can also valuate pieces for insurance purposes. This can again be done either in person or by email, and we will provide the results in writing to you. Please contact us for more information.

- Airing/Drying - Always make sure the carpet or rug is dry before putting it back into position. A damp carpet should always be thoroughly aired, by placing something underneath it to allow the air to circulate and to aid the drying process
- Cleaning - From time to time it is advisable to turn the carpet or rug over and vacuum the back, as this will loosen any grit or dirt particles which may be trapped at the bottom of the pile. Then vacuum the top of the carpet as normal
