In order to correct any rug damage or minimize the impact of normal wear & tear, get your rug inspected periodically. This will also prevent more extensive and expensive rug repair & restoration costs at a later date. The services provided by Heirloom Rug Cleaning® include:
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 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.
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.
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.
