Expert Wool rug repair
Wool rugs, while formed to be strong and lasting are natural fibers, and daily traffic or even heavy furniture legs can cause changes. Acids from pet urine can affect the colors, and moth infestations in the home create larvae that might eat fibers, causing holes that can lead to deterioration, and larger tears.
- Hole, fringe and binding repair
Repairing a hole in a rug is an art in itself. Some examples of repairs: The foundation is delicately rewoven and knotted, or a patch created that blends seamlessly with the rug. Damaged or missing fringe can be replaced or re-woven while the binding can be repaired.
- Rug Re-sizing
Resizing a rug is an option to save a rug that has large patches of damage on its surface. While considering its design, cutting the rug down to a smaller size and creating a new edging can give you a totally new piece.
- Blocking and Backing Repair
If your rug is losing its shape, one reason is the backing might need to be replaced. Our technicians replace the existing backing with a tough tufted backing. Blocking can flatten wrinkles and help straighten out edges again.
Restore your Wool rug's beauty
Acids in pet urine, food, or liquids can attack a fine area rug, making colors bleed or burning its fibers - which in turn allows more absorption of pollutants and dirt.
Blotting liquids immediately from the rug and under-padding can help stave off damage. But just as often simple home measures are just not enough. We can help your fine wool rug get its glow back. We offer highly-specialized color restoration services in NY & NJ, so the beauty and value of your Wool rug will be long-lasting.
