Fringe Repair

Fringe Repair By Heirloom®

After examining the Oriental rug, based on the rug construction, the type of fringe repair is required. If the rug’s edges are hand-knotted, then re-wrapping by hand is required, while paying close attention to the rug’s specific colors and structure. This elaborate and meticulous process is performed by hand.

Power fringing is the preferred method of repairing when the Oriental rug is machine-made and it’s a quicker process too. In case of completely changing the fringe, you can choose from a wide variety of colors and fabrics offered by our members. Moreover, you may also choose to remove the fringe altogether.

Serging & Binding

Serging & Binding By Heirloom®

Serging is a way of providing the rug a finely finished appearance. In the case of your Oriental rugs- wool, cotton or synthetic thread must be used in order to protect them and keep them from unraveling. Depending on the rug’s construction, both hand or machine serging is provided to the rug. Firstly, it’s made sure that the rug’s edges are solid enough. In case, the rug requires edge repairs, a reinforcing is done prior to serging for durability and long-lasting repairs.

When the tufted carpet is made into rugs, binding is primarily used for repairing them. A narrow strip of fabric is placed over the raw edge of the rug and then secured to prevent fraying, in order to give the rug a nice finished look.

Patching & Reweaving

Patching & Reweaving By Heirloom®

Rug patching, sometimes, can be economically and aesthetically the best way to repair many Oriental rugs and other heirloom rugs. Patching is recommended to be done as soon as holes are discovered to prevent more extensive damage.

Rug reweaving is recommended depending on the value of the Oriental rug and the extent of the damage. This is undoubtedly the best and the most thorough method to repair your Oriental rug or another fine area rug to near original condition, though it’s time-consuming.

After cleaning the damaged area, new threads matching the texture and color of the original rug are sewn into the hole to rebuild the foundation of the rug. After that step, the knots are precisely duplicated in the original design to make the repair works barely noticeable.

Backing Repair

Backing Repair By Heirloom®

Old or worn-out backings on any of the tufted area rugs, hooked rugs, or machine-made rugs are replaced to protect and maintain the area rug. The rug with a new backing will have a longer life as it helps secure any rug tufts, knots, fringe, or scrim.

Highly recommended! I had an oriental rug that had been used in a public setting for 25 years and had only ever been cleaned on-site. It wasn't needed any more so I decided to try to get it cleaned properly so I could take it home. They did a fabulous job of cleaning and repair (new fringe and binding), so worth the cost, it now looks new.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Value We had a very good experience with Greg at Heirloom Rug Cleaning. We mistakenly used an improper cleaning solution on our wool rug and he was willing to take on the job.

I absolutely loved how clean my rugs were after Heirloom Oriental Rug Cleaning had them. My two very expensive silk on silk carpets are so soft and the colours are so vibrant now!
