OUR WORKS & SERVICES
Estimated Quotes for Works: are valid for 30 days only from the date of issue of the relative paperwork given at The Oriental Rug Gallery Ltd or sent via email or text from us, whether or not this is stated on the correspondence quote.
Receipt for Works & Services: all pieces brought to The Oriental Rug Gallery Ltd for works and services are reviewed and assessed, and the prices detailed on a receipt. The customer signs for the go-ahead of works to be undertaken and retains a copy of the receipt at The Oriental Rug Gallery Ltd, which is then handed in upon return to The Oriental Rug Gallery Ltd, to collect ﬁnished pieces. Estimate for works may be viewed and the quote emailed to the customer, who will need to reply with a 'go-ahead of confirmation' or 'decline' in writing, to ensure a paper trail is recorded for any works assessed remotely. (see further details in Individually Assessed Rug Works below.
The Oriental Rug Gallery Ltd is not be obliged to offer any compensation or discount, if the amount charged for rug works and services are not listed in full on the receipt given to the customer, when the piece(s) is initially collected by us or deposited by the customer at The Oriental Rug Gallery Ltd, compared to the invoice Total To Pay. For example due to: further agreed rug works and services being added; an unforeseen typographical/writing error on the receipt; the quantity, size or yarn type of piece(s) for works has increased or differ from the customer details originally given prior to collection by us; or where an unauthorised furnishings removal service charge has to be added, to extract piece(s) due for collection.
Individually Assessed Rug Works:
Prices for some rug services ie Individually Assessed Rug Works (IARW) such as repairs, restoration and alteration works, tester applications, and stain and/or odour corrective treatments, can only be fully costed when the actual piece arrives at The Oriental Rug Gallery Ltd for full assessment and review by the Master Rug Craftsman, where the IARW may need to be undertaken either before, during or after other rug works take place.
Once assessed, the customer is notified if present, or contacted remotely via email/text/phone, of the IARW costs to add to their receipt copy. IARW are not obligatory. To cancel IARW remotely, the customer must contact us by email within 24 hours of us originally informing them. If no reply is received within this time-frame, this is understood by us as being: 'the customer's agreed go-ahead confirmation for the IARW to be applied at the costs quoted’, which are then liable for payment. Any IARW may mean pieces take longer to be completed. Please note: the general deep-wash rug cleaning works do not form part of the IARW.
Stains & Odours disclaimer:
Please note: due to the nature of stains, odours and/or rug types there is no guarantee that any long standing and/or pre-existing stubborn stains or odours such as red wine, flooding, mould, mildew, damp, smoke, soot or water damage stains or other colour-fast stains such as ink, nail varnish, coffee, paint, colour run or dog/cat/baby urine, soilage and odours can improve or be removed during the general deep-wash rug cleaning process. This information may or may not be verbally conﬁrmed to you, prior to any general deep-wash rug cleaning process being undertaken.
Stain and/or Odour Corrective Treatment Works:
For long-standing, deeply absorbed and/or pre-existing saturated, stubborn stains and/or odours, it is necessary to undertake individually applied stain and/or odour corrective treatment works. Here, when a piece arrives at The Oriental Rug Gallery Ltd for rug cleaning, any stains and/or odours present are individually assessed and these works are listed and costed separately from the general deep-wash rug cleaning service on the receipt.
The customer is then notified if present, or contacted remotely via email/text/phone, of any stain and/or odour corrective treatment work costs to add to their receipt copy. These corrective treatment works are not obligatory. To cancel these works remotely, the customer must contact us by email within 24 hours of us originally informing them. If no reply is received within this time-frame, this is understood by us as being: 'the customer's agreed go-ahead confirmation for these works to be applied at the costs quoted’, which are then liable for payment.
Once the go-ahead of works is confirmed by the customer, corrective treatment works are then applied before and during the general deep-wash rug cleaning works being undertaken. However, due to the nature of some stains, odours and/or rug types, there is no guarantee that any long standing and/or pre-existing stubborn stains can be completed removed, although they normally lighten and improve by varying degrees during treatment application processes. And where any applied corrective treatment works may mean the piece(s) take a little longer for completion.
We reserve the right to cancel any of the above works and/or return deliver the piece(s) to the customer, if this customer confirmation go-ahead is not received within the 24-hour time limit stated. Collection and/or Return Delivery Service charges are still applicable, if used.
