HOW TO SAVE A RUG IN BORDERLINE RESCUE TERRITORY.

December 22, 2014

When the borders of a rug have worn away, creating a shabby look for a high quality piece, it's not just "normal wear and tear." It’s what happens when years pass and you put off maintaining your rug. 

Here’s how things usually progress in a situation like this:

The rug begins to unravel. You tell yourself you’re going to bring it into HC Nahigian and Sons to get it repaired. It keeps unraveling more and more. The fair amount of foot traffic on top of the rug stays consistent. It unravels further. Did you make that call to HC Nahigian yet? You vacuum the rug over and over, almost too aggressively, which may not be helping it. 

The unraveling reaches such a state that you wonder if the rug is beyond repair and worth the effort.

Don’t give up on that rug yet. Yes, you should’ve brought it in sooner, that’s true. But even in extreme cases like the one above, our repair and restoration department can work some real magic when they need to.

However, if you can avoid a rug unraveling this much over time, you should absolutely take measures to stay on top of it. When you start to see a rug unraveling, have HC Nahigian take a closer look at the state of the rug for repairs so that the potential for further damage is halted in its tracks.

Call HC Nahigian today about repair and restoration options that are right for your rug at 847.676.2500.
