Regular rug repairing is an essential part to making sure that a rug looks and feels its best for an extended period of time. However, many rug owners often fail to secure the rug cleaning and rug washing services they so desperately need. If you happen to be one of those rug owners, there’s no need to fear or feel ashamed—a reputable rug repairer can revive even vintage and handmade rugs so that they look and feel as new as the day they were made.
Effective rug washing, cleaning and restoration results in one or more of the following outcomes:
- Removing troublesome stains
- Restoring faded colors and patterns
- Reversing insect damage
- Repairing holes, rips and tears
- Reweaving loose knots and fabrics
- Replacing worn and torn corners
Before we proceed any further, a note of clarification: there’s a notable difference between “rug repair” and “rug restoration.” Many people outside the industry think of those terms as synonymous, but rug repair experts know otherwise. The key difference is that a rug restoration addresses the state of the rug as a whole, while a rug repair focuses on a particular issue like a rip or a tear. Therefore, rug repair should be combined with rug washing and rug cleaning services in order to achieve the effect of a fully restored rug.
Once the rug has been thoroughly cleaned and washed, a skilled rug artisan will carefully restore the rug to its original condition or make alterations based on the customer’s specifications. Here are some of the more common rug repair techniques:
- fringe replacement
- fringe removal
- fringe extensions
- wall mounts to hang rugs
- restoring color running
