As with any item of furniture, area rugs will see some wear over time. The fact that most area rugs are regularly walked on will make it even more likely that some type of repair will be needed over the life of the rug. Your rug could have tattered rug fringe, worn edges, and sometimes even holes! Having your area rugs professionally repaired by Ayoub N&H Carpet & Rugs will keep the damage from getting any worse and potentially becoming irreparable.
The most common type of damage on area rugs is worn fringes. Ayoub N&H can repair rug fringe by either installing a new pre-made fringe, or by weaving new fringe into the rug. The type of fringe repair will depend on the type of rug and the look you prefer.
Another common type of rug damage is worn edging. The overcasting or binding on the sides of your rugs can become loose or come completely separated from the rug. Rug edging can be repaired by hand for fine Oriental rugs, or an edging with the same look can be installed by machine. With both types of methods, yarn is wrapped around the edge of the rug to give it a durable finish.
To minimize any damage to your area rugs, you should do things like regularly rotating your area rugs so that high traffic doesn’t continuously wear down one area, vacuum down the length of fringes to avoid pulling the strands, and make sure to purchase a quality rug padding from Ayoub N&H to minimize the impact of your footsteps on the rug.
Remember to check your rugs regularly for any damage. You may not even notice your rug has damage until you’ve given it a closer inspection.
