This process rejuvenates, and brings back to life, rugs that have been affected by sun bleaching by shearing off only the top few millimetres of discoloured pile to reveal fresh, new and vibrant colours.
Rugs exposed to even the smallest amount of sunlight can cause it to gradually undergo a process commonly known as “sun bleaching”. Sun bleaching causes a rug to lose its vibrant colours and become quite dull. What most people are unaware of is that sun bleaching only affects the top few millimetres of the rug pile.
We are excited to be the first in Australia to now possess state of the art machinery that allows us to rejuvenate, and bring back to life, rugs that have been affected by sun bleaching by shearing off only the top few millimetres of discoloured pile to reveal fresh, new and vibrant colours.
This process is effective only if the discolouration is on the surface of the rug and has not seeped too deep into the pile. We are able to determine the likely success of our shearing service through a quick examination of the rug, and these findings can then be explained to you prior to the commencement of any work.
Our rug shearing service is performed by an expert whose work is generally undertaken in a rug restoration facility which has been specifically designed and fitted out with all the tools and equipment necessary to ensure a successful result. We are also able to undertake the works onsite should that be preferable.

Had some surface stains on my rug that would only come out if the pile was reduced slightly. Gave my rug to rubber Anchor and they managed to shave a few mms off the surface and made my rug look great again. Had it washed by them as well, as their service saved me thousands of dollars by not having to go out and buy a new rug.
