If you want your rug to look as good as the day you bought it, then it will need to be repaired just as soon as there’s some damage to it. Not all rugs experience wear and tear in the same way – they wear differently based on the type of rug it is.
If you choose to ignore the damaged area of your rug, it gets worse, and you end up with more damage, bigger repairs and bigger costs.
Keeping your Favorite Things in Good Repair
Rug repair will be needed when your rug has faded, it has been nibbled at by moth larvae, damaged by water or has a tear. It may even have pet urine odors and stains.
All rugs are treasured by their owners, but it is particularly important to keep your favorite antique-, Persian, Oriental-, silk- or wool carpets in good repair as these rugs can be costly. Many times they are investment pieces or heirlooms and they have sentimental value as well.
Repairing a rug as soon as a tear is seen is very important especially in the case of these antique and oriental carpets as they can be worth a small fortune.
At Oriental Rug Cleaners, we are rug experts who have in-depth knowledge about yarns, the weaving of rugs, binding, the colors of a rug and how to make use of eco-friendly repair methods for their care. We know that incorrect handling of these valuable carpets can cause damage and decrease the value of the rug for the owner.
Rug repair is often needed when rugs have worn out spots or the fabric has become so faded that you can no longer see the original colors. A professional rug repairer can mend holes or tears in a rug with reweaving.

We’ve seen many rugs brought into us by their owners who tried to use a scissors to try and repair their handwoven rug. We’ve seen how it’s all ended with the rug’s warp and weave threads unraveling.
With antique- and Oriental rugs, the edges and ends of an old rug always need attention too. The fringe area is particularly prone to damage.
