Restoration & Repair of 40 Smoke-Damaged Oriental Rugs

smoke damaged oriental rug

An Oriental rug that has sustained smoke and soot damage caused by fire

Nejad Rugs has been contracted by a prominent Bucks County PA businessman to wash and repair 40 smoke damaged Oriental Rugs. The client, working with his insurance company, trusts Nejad Rugs’ 31 years of experience to expertly service his rugs.

In the handling of such a formidable job, remediation of both visible soot as well as the various types of odors
from smoke damage due to fire requires the application of careful, stepwise methods using proven techniques – but most importantly the judgement and experience of a qualified Oriental rug expert. The restoration process for
each damaged textile can vary depending upon the extent and type of damage.

It is important not to attempt to wash or deoderize a smoke-damaged rug as the first course of action. Deoderizing will only mask the odor (wood fires, plastic fires, other synthetics odors) and will be effective –
if at all – for a short time only. Washing, as the first course of action, is also ill-advised as that would only result in spreading soot both into the rug pile as well as smudging the surface.

Fire-related soot and smoke damage to oriental rugs may be repairable. Contact a professional fire restorer and rug restoration service for an expert appraisal.

Money, time and your rugs can best be saved by contacting a professional fire restorer and rug restoration service as soon as possible after any damage has been incurred – this information usually available through your home insurance agent. If you need immediate assistance or have any questions please call Nejad Rugs in Doylestown at 215-348-1255.

Nejad Tribal Geometric Rugs Coordinate Perfectly with Stickley Furniture

Nejad tribal geometric rugs coordinate perfectly with Stickley furniture

Wood tones, simple lines, relaxed designs, rustic, durable, timeless … Stickley Furniture. Using superior construction techniques and the highest quality materials, the Stickley name has been synonymous with excellence in the furniture industry for over a century.

Not only did the early 20th-century American furniture created by the Stickley brothers use solid construction methods, traditional joinery techniques, and the highest quality woods, but even more, it showed a genius for design – creating hundreds of new forms that were at once beautiful to look upon, practical to use, exceedingly
strong and long-lasting, and perfect for the new ways American families wanted to live.

The popular usage of the term ‘Craftsman’, which denotes a style of architecture, interior design, and decorative arts representative of that very period, originates from the trade name that Gustav Stickley chose for his Craftsman line of Arts & Crafts furniture. The underlying principle of the Craftsman philosophy, and the
Craftsman style home, was “Honesty of Design” – a value promoted by Stickley in his monthly magazine, The Craftsman, in which he offered a new house plan in every issue.

While the terms Craftsman and Mission are sometimes used interchangeably the Mission style is more typically southwestern and is a style influenced by the stucco-faced edefices of 18th century Spanish missions as well
as the native Americans in the Southwest.

Our rugs go well with any type of tile, hardwood or natural substrate flooring.

The Craftsman house is, arguably, a unique structure – artisan-constructed, architect-designed – using natural materials with design features conforming to the environmental surroundings. The interior spaces of these early 20th century homes typically resonated with simple, beautiful, functional, harmonious, hand-crafted, high quality, and durable amenities: from furniture to built-in woodwork to doors and windows, fireplaces and stonework to fabrics and textiles, wallpaper to rugs and tapestries.

Nejad Oriental Rugs in Sayre Mansion in Bethlehem, PA – Christmas City USA

Holiday decor - Sayre Mansion, Bethlehem PA

Wishing You a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year – from Nejad Rugs

The Sayre Mansion was the first house built in the wealthy neighborhood called Fountain Hill in Bethlehem – more than a hundred years ago. Not only did Robert Heysham Sayre – chief engineer of the Lehigh Valley Railroad – build the Sayre Mansion, but he also founded the Fountain Hill Opera House and assisted in the building of the Bethlehem Iron Works, which later would become Bethlehem Steel.

Bethlehem, PA – there are more than 50 different holiday events and attractions to explore in Christmas City USA!

Christmas City USA

A tradition which began in 1937, the Citizens Christmas City Committee helps
to organize and plan the look of Christmas in the City of Bethlehem –
including the display of over 800 trees that will be lit (sparkling white
lights adorn those trees in the Historic Moravian District and beautiful,
LED colored lights on the trees in the SouthSide Arts District) during this
2015 Christmas season.

The entire Bethlehem retail district is festively decorated featuring beautiful
door and window displays and complimentary holiday refreshments to beckon and
revive any would-be weary Christmas shopper. Christmas-themed carriage rides,
bus tours and walking tours – there is even a “Live Advent Calendar” – provide visitors a traditional, enriching holiday experience – the authentically-costumed guides leading the way to the museums and historically-preserved houses decorated as they would have been by the Moravians who occupied them in the 17 and 1800’s.

Named by Travel and Leisure Magazine in 2006, One of the Top Holiday Markets in the
Entire WorldBethlehem’s Christkindlmarkt is an arts & crafts market modeled after Europe’s open-air holiday marketplaces. Set under large heated tents, this holiday outdoor emporium features vendors catering to the entire array of possible gift-giving ideas – including Christmas-themed crafts and artwork. There is, of course, entertainment and fun activities for the kids – not to mention the perfunctory visit
from you-know-who (Santa Claus).

charm of the Christkindlmarkt Bethlehem™ to rockin’ New Year’s Eve celebrations,
there are more than 50 different holiday events and attractions to explore

Nejad Oriental Rugs Philadelphia Testimonial

“After visiting oriental rug stores with a big web presence only to be extremely disappointed by their small stores & rug selections it was a pleasure to find Nejad Oriental Rugs in Doylestown, Bucks County, a real importer with multiple warehouses and a truly unbelievable inventory of high quality Persian Rugs. Don’t waste your time elsewhere.”
– Dr. Joseph W. from Philadelphia

The Virtual World of the Internet Advertising Often Leads to Real World Customers’ Disappointment & Wasted Time for Oriental Rug Shoppers

Nejad has over 30,000 Rugs in stock!

Other Rug Stores VS Nejad Oriental Rugs

When searching online for a reputable Oriental rug importer it often surprises
customers how a store can look so grand and reputable on the internet but when visited in person they find small stores with little inventory or no store at all.

I liken it to online dating with profiles submitted, you know, often having
nothing (or absolutely nothing) to do with reality. The aim is to lure in as
many unsuspecting prospects as possible and hope a fast-talking sales pitch works in place of the true investment needed for a real rug importer.

How often is this scenario repeated? Probably more often than reported! Even though there is Yelp and Google Plus, the internet doesn’t have the ability to “police” every claim made by every merchant to protect every consumer all the time. The popular nostrum Caveat Emptor (Buyer Beware) is as relevant today as ever!

At Nejad Rugs we pride ourselves on being members of the prestigious Oriental Rug Importers Association, an exclusive group of the largest rug importers in the United States. We also make the huge financial commitment of owning our carefully selected inventory of magnificent new and antique rugs in two expansive Pennsylvania warehouses



Girls Group Learns About the Art of Rug Weaving at Nejad Oriental Rugs in Bucks County PA

Adventuresome Young Ladies Get Set to Test Drive a Carpet from the Nejad Showroom

A girls youth group, recently sightseeing in Doylestown, payed an impromptu
visit to the Nejad Rugs showroom at 1 North Main Street. In their tour of
the premesis the young ladies became very excited and happy to see so many
gorgeous, colorful rugs in a splendid array of different colors and design
styles. No, they didn’t get to ride a magic carpet, but they did have the
opportunity to learn the basics of how handmade rugs are woven, and how the
materials and techniques used in the process of rugmaking have remained
consistent over the centuries of textile history – a time-honored traditional
art form passed down from generation to generation. While some of the girls
were more impressed by the idea of the level of skill and discipline involved
in the actual weaving of the rugs, everyone, it seemed, equally enjoyed the
end products of all that labor!
