People often refer to rug repair and restoration interchangeably. Technically, a restoration, however, implies that the work is meant to restore a piece to its original state. A repair is meant to fix a problem, which may or may not mean that it will be restored to its original state. As such, in some instances, a restoration can be the same thing as a repair.
