Care of historic and period carpets and rugs
Historic Carpet Care was established in 2013 by Glyn Charnock, former Training Director for the National Carpet Cleaners Association, following collaboration with Ksynia Marko at the National Trust to adapt commercial methods and equipment for the safe cleaning of historic carpets. The process was developed further in 2016 following additional research by Frances Hartog at the Victoria & Albert Museum.
By working in collaboration with professional colleagues we aim to continue to offer the in situ historic carpet cleaning methods developed by Glyn. Our work ensures processes meet conservation principles and best practice.
