WHEN DOGS HAVE RUGS FOR LUNCH

August 24, 2014

dog eating a rugWe love our pets. But pets don’t always love our rugs. Sometimes, a dog doesn’t gnaw on a corner now and then but does something really drastic – like the case of the customer who came into HC Nahigian’s store with a rug in really bad shape.

How bad? His dog had chewed all four sides of his rug to the point of where giant chunks were missing. 

Unsalvageable?

Beyond repair?

The end of the line?

While some might have called it that, we had an idea. Noticing that there were multiple borders on the rug, our repair technicians realized that if we could reduce the size of the rug to its inner border and then duplicate the edges and fringes that the original weaver did, we might be able to minimize the damaged look.

The result of reducing the rug in width and length turned out to be a terrific call. Looking at the finished rug today, you’d never know the repair work had been done.

Now let’s hope our customer’s dog doesn’t use the rug as a chew toy for at least another year or two.

 

From giant holes to splashed Gatorade, a rug can encounter it all. Fortunately, so has our repair team at HC Nahigian. So don’t give up on that rug too soon – you’ll be amazed by how we can rescue a rug in all kinds of unique ways most people couldn’t even imagine. Give us a call at 847.676.2500 and let’s talk about how we can potentially bring your rug back to looking good as new.
